1990 Best Jacksonville #7/7

Rodriguez

Boi Rodriguez was someone who could do a convincing impersonation of a prospect, but never really hit enough to get a cup of coffee in the majors. It also didn’t help that as a corner infielder he never slugged above .446 in full-time action.

Santana

 Another member of the 90 Jacksonville team that never made the majors. Santana appears to have shown some promise in the lower levels of the minors, but fell apart as he progressed.

Vanderwal

 Ah, a major-leaguer! Vander Wal was a serviceable but not great outfielder for quite some time, and made a dent with the Expos.

Winston

And the final card of the set. Winston actually did make the majors in 1997 at age 30 with the Phillies. He ended up with 34 major league games and a 5+ ERA.

Overall, a pretty fun little set, and definitely worth what I paid for it. It’s interesting to look back at these guys and see who made it and the paths they took to get there. I hope to pick up some more sets like these soon.
