Custom Card: 1991 Upper Deck Rafael Betancourt
Rafael Betancourt comes into 2012 as the Rockies new closer after being the 8th inning guy the last 2 and a half years. Betancourt doesn't get much recognition around baseball, but over 151 innings with Colorado he has struck out 192 guys, while walking 22, for a 8.73 strikeout per walk ratio. Betancourt hasn't appeared on cardboard since 2008 when he was with Cleveland, but he does now have a card in the 2012 Topps Rockies Team Set, card number COL14, so it looks like he will be in Topps Series 2.
