1978 Topps Eddie Solomon 598 - Braves Card of the Day ⚾

The Braves traded for journeyman reliever Eddie Solomon before the start of the 1977 season and he was a solid member of the bullpen all three seasons. The Braves would send him away after 1979 for a guy who would never pitch an inning in the big leagues. I suppose the lesson is that good relievers serve no function on bad baseball teams.
