#393 - 1984 United States Baseball Team: Scott Bankhead

What a card: Scott Bankhead evens the ledger between 1984 Olympians who made the majors and those who didn't at 2-2. Bankhead pitched for 10 years in the major leagues.

My observation on the front: Wow. Boring.

More opinion from me: Bankhead looks like every other guy who lives in the next county over from me.

Something you might know: Bankhead reached his career peak in 1989 with the Mariners when he went 14-6 in 33 starts, striking out 140. He won seven straight starts, which is still a Seattle record (tied with Jamie Moyer).

Something you might not know: Another member of the '84 Olympic team, B.J. Surhoff, was a batterymate of Bankhead's when the two played for the University of North Carolina.

My observation on the back: If his greatest asset is "tremendous competitiveness" wouldn't he be at his best in games both important and unimportant?
