Sam Jones

Number: 27 Player: Sam Jones, P, 1955-56 Comment: Can't pick Dolan Nichols or Champ Summers. Or Herman Franks' favorite player, Mike Vail. You go with the toothpick man, who threw a no-hitter and made the All-Star team as a rookie, led the NL in K's his two Cub years, then left via trade and got even better.
