Fun Cards: 2019 Reds, 1987 Topps football style: Anthony DeSclafani

I fell behind on these pretty quickly this year. I had huge expectations for my Reds this year, but when they started the season so poorly I focused on other things. Call me a bandwagon fan, but I’m not going to stand by and root for a terrible team. I’m happy when they win, and love seeing guys like Aristides Aquino excel, but as a whole the Reds have been an enormous disappointment in 2019.

Anthony DeSclafani, while not the ace of the staff, has been a solid back-of-the-rotation starter. His 8-7 record and 4.40 ERA are about what I would expect for a 4th or 5th starter, and his 1.6 WAR isn’t terrible. He’ll never be mistaken for an All-Star, but as long as he can avoid injury I expect “Disco” to have a nice long career on the mound.
