Steve Farr

Bringing the thunder.

Why we like him: In retrospect, by 1993, Steve Farr looked a lot like Kenny Powers, and with good reason too. In the three seasons prior to that, he was a bulletproof tiger out of the bullpen. When you look at the guy's career in hindsight, he actually put together a very sneakily impressive 11-year résumé. He didn't even crack a major-league roster until he was 27, and he pitched mainly as a reliever during an era when what we now know as the closer role was still in its intermediate development stages. His final line for his career : 11 seasons, 4 teams, 48-45 record, 3.25 ERA, 132 saves, 668 strikeouts, 1.32 WHIP. I'll take that.
