1992 Score. Chris Bosio

#37 Chris Bosio

Here is the second of three Chris Bosio cards that I got signed at an Iowa Cubs game in July. Chris was the pitching coach for the visiting Nashville Sounds.

Chris pitched for the Brewers for seven seasons and spent a majority of the time as a starter. Though he never made an All Star team or propelled the Brewers to the playoffs, he did have some really good seasons. He had double digit wins in four of his seven seasons with the club, including a career high of 16 in 1992.

Even though he finished that season 16-6, I would say that 1989 was his best season as a Brewer. That year, he finished 15-10. Obviously, that is not as good as 16-6, but he had other stats stand out as well. His ERA that year was a career best 2.95 and he struck out 173 batter which was also a career high. That must be why Donruss rewarded him with a Diamond King card in their 1990 set.

After 1992, Chris left Milwaukee and headed to Seattle via the free agent route. But, I will get into that next week when I post my third and final card of Chris.
