#69T - Mike LaCoss
What a card: Mike LaCoss signed with the Royals as a free agent on Feb. 19, 1985.
How'd that go: Lousy. LaCoss pitched just 40 innings for the Royals in 1985, posting an above-5 ERA, and he was released by K.C. after the season. He didn't even get into any of the Royals' postseason games in '85. Another free-agent try before the 1986 season worked better as he hooked on with the Giants for a few seasons.
Backatya: What sounds better, Hubert H. Humphrey Metrodome or Target Field? I'm not a fan of either. But I don't suppose Minnesota's field can be called "Twins Park" as I wish.
Back-to-back: LaCoss offers quite an intense look on several of his cards. These are two of them. At least it seems a little warmer on his Traded card.
The flagship card is No. 666 and was originally blogged on June 2, 2017.
