Jose Mesa, 1992 Topps #310

Okay, here's a question for you longtime Oriole fans. Was Jose Mesa really this ugly? By the time I became a fan, "Joe Table" was a Cleveland Indian, and thankfully he had dropped the Stoney Jackson look somewhere along the way. I also didn't remember him being quite so doughy, but maybe this photo is just taken at a bad angle. All I know is that I wouldn't exactly be filled with confidence if a guy took the mound for my team looking like that. He's a far cry from Al Hrabosky when it comes to projecting an intimidating figure.
