1990 jim gott

jim gott left the pirates and joined the dodgers as a free agent in december of 1989.  here's his 1990 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
once in la, he was a standout in the bullpen for some very forgettable, and i'll be honest - bad, dodger teams.  he allowed less than a third of his inherited runners to score, while maintaining an era in the twos for most of his dodger career.  he even spent a single season (1993) as the dodgers' primary closer, and saved 25 games in that role.  things fell apart in 1994, however, as his era ballooned to over 5.  after that season, he became a free agent and wound up re-signing with the pirates once the strike ended

voici à vous, 1990 jim gott!
