1990 randy myers

randy myers was traded from the mets to the reds in december of 1989. here is his 1990 o-pee-chee card:
here's the topps front:
now the o-pee-chee back:
and the topps back:
what a difference a team makes as myers posted numbers fairly similar to those he had for the mets in 1989, but the reds won it all in 1990 so myers was rewarded with an all-star appearance, a 5th place finish in the cy young voting, and a 17th place showing in the mvp balloting.

in the 1990 postseason, he saved 3 nlcs games and 1 world series game without allowing a single run. towards the end of the 1991 season, the reds put myers in the rotation and he went 2-6 in 12 starts. he was back in the bullpen after that, although it was with the padres in 1992.

voici à vous, 1990 randy myers!
