Doctor K

#16 Dwight Gooden - "Doctor K" - 9" x 12" acrylic on paper. Doc Gooden was an easy choice here. Gooden was dominate from the start - winning 17 games and ROY honors his first year. Appeared in the All-Star game his rookie season at 19 years old and proceeded to strikeout the side. Won the Cy Young award his next season leading the league in Wins (24), Strikeouts (268), ERA (1.53) and Complete Games (16). Hurt his shoulder in 89 and was never the same. Atlanta players to wear 16 - Rafael Ramirez and Brian McCann. Who will I pick for #15?
