#576 - Jaime Cocanower

What a card: This is Jaime Cocanower's first card in a Topps base set. He first appeared in the 1984 Topps Traded and Fleer Update sets.

My observation on the front: One of those photos that makes it appear as if the pitcher is an amputee.

More opinion from me: I think it's outstanding that the Brewers saw to it in 1986 that their bullpen contained both Jaime Cocanower and Bryan Clutterbuck (RIP).

Something you might know: Cocanower was a regular in the Brewers' starting rotation in 1984, right behind Don Sutton and Moose Haas.

Something you might not know: Cocanower set a Pacific Coast League record for wild pitches in a season. During his last year in pro ball, with the Dodgers' Triple A squad in 1987, he threw 32(!) wild pitches.

My observation on the back: Another phoned-in trivia question.

The blog wants to speak now: The News category is updated.
