Ramon Martinez

Sweaty dude.

Why we like him: Ah, yes, (this) Ramon Martinez. He'll probably forever be known as Pedro's lousy older brother, and to that, I say, "Not so fast, amigo." For for a stretch in the late '80s and the early '90s, Ramon was the Martinez everyone thought would be remembered as one of the all-time greats, and to be honest, looking back, he compiled a pretty impressive career. He went 135-88 with a career 3.67 ERA and won 15 or more games in a season on four separate occasions. Surprisingly, he was an All Star selection only once, which was in 1990 when he went 20-6 with a 2.92 ERA and lost out on the Cy Young Award to Doug Drabek who had just slightly better numbers. He was nowhere near the pitcher his younger brother was, but Ramon Martinez was still very, very good.

Ladies and gentlemen, Ramon Martinez, ballplayer.
