#71 - Mike Aldrete
Blech. I hate this shot. Aldrete looks like he's trying to be model here. I'm assuming the photographer was female. Plus, Topps cut off the tip of the barrel of the bat. I'm getting really sick of their cropping decisions.
Aldrete was another one of those guys who was a perfectly average hitter, but never got much of a chance to play every day. Interestingly, he hit 2 homers off only three guys: Jeff Reardon, Mike Scott and Roger Clemens. Not bad at all.
