Rated Random: Randy Myers

Why we like him: Another reliever. Randy Myers bounced around the majors for 14 years, stockpiling 347 saves. He even led the league in save three times (53 in 1993, 38 in 1995, and 45 in 1997).  He was also a 4-time All Star. He began his career with the Mets in 1985 and pitched five seasons before being traded to Cincinnati in a deal that would bring John Franco to Queens. In 1991 after saving 81 games over the previous three seasons, the Reds even experimented with making Myers a starter. He started 12 games, but posted a 6-13 record over that season. His career as a closer bloomed after he signed with the Cubs as a free agent in 1993.

Ladies and gentlemen, Randy Myers, ballplayer.
