Dave Stieb

Dave Stieb is one of the most underrated players in recent baseball history. He had a very good peak from 1980 through 1990. In that time, he pitched 2537.1 innings with a 3.29 ERA (127 ERA+), 3.74 FIP, and 1.22 WHIP. During that stretch, he went to seven All-Star games, and led the league in ERA+ twice, and received Cy Young votes on four different occasions. Unfortunately, Stieb would only pitch 228.2 innings. Had he barley pitched in his mid-30s, he probably would have been in the Hall of Fame.

Stieb would likely get a Milestone series card for his No Hitter on September 2nd, 1990. He pitched all nine innings, striking out nine and walking four batters. Stieb could also get a Prime series card based on the year he had the best ERA, that being 1985. He also led the league in hits/9 that season, so he’d likely have a very high H/9 attribute, one of the most important attributes for pitchers in MLB The Show.
