Scott Elarton had the 3rd worst ERA in HISTORY with guys having at least 8 starts.

Thankfully he got released!

Edwin Jackson is a good candidate but what about Zack Duke?

93.1 IP 5.79 ERA 1.75 Whip and in 93 IP only 33 Ks

what's pathetic is that with a 1.75 Whip the Bucs still let him pitch 93 innings.

If you go by VORP the bottom 5 are:

Fossum
Elarton
Seo
Jackson
Maroth

Although not all of Fossum's negative value came as a starter. If you disqualify him as a result of his RP, then Elarton is the worst and Redman becomes the 5th worst.

The question was worst starter in MLB as of right now. Elarton and Seo have only pitched 9-10 games and aren't starting at the moment so they don't count. Fossum is a reliever so he's out as well.

Jackson, Maroth and Odalis Perez are the top 3. All three are still starters and have started all year. And all three are utter garbage.

chalk up another vote for Zito... Yes, there are pitchers w/ bad stats, but this signing should finally push out Sabean who has been crap for years

Maroth isn't starting right now either, so he's out.

The murderers row for the Cards right now is

Wainwright
Wells
Reyes
Looper
Piniero

Maroth hasn't even been called on for mop up duty lately.
