This was the first person who jumped to my mind.

I'm annoyed that I didn't wake up earlier and start spot starting whoever was throwing against the O's when Ortiz started. !+)


Russ was the first person that came to mind for me too.

Joe Mays also had a 10.27 ERA in 6 starts.

The difference between Ortiz/Mays and Towers is that the Jays actually let the guy go for a full third of the season.

I'll give Silva some credit. Atleast there was a period with him in the middle of the season where he was usable in fantasy.

Is he still cashing cheques from the D-Backs? What did they give him? 4 year deal?? !+)

What I want to know, is who the 25 bums are who struck out against him this season.

Don't know much about NL pitchers but in the AL I would also agree with Josh Towers and Daniel Cabrera. But would like to add Rodrigo Lopez from Baltimore. Oh and just about every KC starter.
