Pete Vuckovich

This guy won the 1982 AL Cy Young Award.

Why we like him: With that pristine mullet/mustache combo, what's not to like? And yes, seriously, this man won the '82 AL Cy Young with the Brewers after going 18-6 with a 3.34 ERA (His teammate, Robin Yount won the AL MVP that season as well). He was a pretty good pitcher at the height of his powers too, but after trying to pitch through pain for a while in 1983, it was determined that Vuckovich had a torn rotator cuff. He tried to comeback in 1985 and 1986, but it was clear he was no longer near the pitcher he was before his injury. Either way, nice 'stache.

Ladies and gentlemen, Pete Vuckovich, ballplayer.
