#55 Kevin Seitzer

PATIENT : bearing pains or trials calmly or without complaint

Yep.  After bearing the pains for 10 seasons on bad teams, or missing the playoffs, Kevin finally got traded to a team just in time for the post season.

His patience finally paid off.

The 1996 Indians lost the AL Division Series to the Orioles.

The 1997 Indians lost the World Series to Marlins.

#54 Joe Oliver

CHASING : an earnest or frenzied seeking after something desired

So what does Joe desire, what does he really desire?

Won a World Series with the Reds in 1990.

His childrens names are Dejai, Karrah, Gavin, and Lauryl.
Maybe Joe needs an earnest desire to be a better speller.

#53 Cal Eldred

ALL-OUT : made with maximum effort

Second card in a row using a dash.

Won 13 of his first 15 decisions for the Brewers in 1991 and 1992. 

The next four years in a row he went 16-16, 11-11, 1-1, and 4-4.  Baseball weird.

Nicknamed "Corn Field"

#52 Ricky Bones

LOCKED-IN : unable or unwilling to shift invested funds because of the tax effect of realizing capital gains

BONES : slang : dollar (get the connection?)

Played for 7 different teams in his 10 year career.

AL All-Star in 1994, but didn't get to play.

Earned a World Series ring for the Yankees in 1996 even though he was left off the roster.
(I'm seeing a trend here)

Bones was named in the Mitchell report for taking steroids/HGH.
