When They Were Young: Scott Olsen

Olsen eTopps

2006 eTopps #80
Position: P
Bio/Summary: Olsen has not exactly set the world on fire for the Nationals so far; to date, he is 1-4 with a 7.24 ERA and a 60 ERA+. I don’t know if he’s going to stick long-term – so I had no idea what category to put him into yet. He hasn’t been much more than a league-average pitcher so far in his career, so I don’t expect him to set the world on fire. Still, as a rookie in 2006, he went 12-10 with a 4.04 ERA and a 107 ERA+. Not bad for a rookie.
How Did I Get It?: Got it on eTopps.com.
Did You Know?: He was arrested in 2007 after a fight with police officers. He was charged with driving under the influence, resisting an officer with violence and fleeing and eluding a police officer, and was released on a $11,000 bond.
Rating: 8/10 – I love eTopps cards, and this one looks great with the overall green theme to it. Very different from the Ryan Zimmerman rookie I’ve already featured here.
