Card of the Day: 1/21/16

2001 Fleer Futures #203 Esix Snead

     As mentioned in a previous Card of the Day segment, Snead didn't play much in the Major Leagues, only two seasons with the Mets. He posted a career MLB batting average of .308 and that leads us to question why his career was so limited. The answer came when we looked at his Minor League statistics. In nine seasons in the Minor Leagues, Esix batted over .250 only once and posted a career Minor League batting average of .231. It appears that Snead is one of those players who showed flashes of brilliance, but ultimately didn't measure up.
