Just looking at stats of pitchers with over 100 career innings pitched, I see that Andy Larkin had a career ERA of 8.86 in 105 and 2/3 innings pitched. I'm curious if this he is the worst pitcher in MLB history with 100+ career innings?

I thought the worst ever with 100+ record was firmly in the untalented grasp of one Jimmy Anderson. Jimmah could be the all time worst at 1,000 IP, I'm not sure and too lazy to look it up.

Disturbing, but not suprising, that both are affiliated with our Reds however.

I saw Andy Larkin pitch..he was with the Marlins at the time.

He was stinky bad, but the Reds got him anyway ;)

Actually, his 6 games with the Reds were the brightest moments of his career, and that's not saying much.
