Re: Ode to the bad player
While in retrospect he wasn't THAT bad, 8 year old me couldn't for the life of me figure out why Scott Scudder was allowed on a major league mound.
Otherwise, I might go with Neifi Perez (since when did being merely poor at everything and not sucking horribly at anything mean you were a decent player?). Though the worst hitter I've ever seen was Aaron Harang. He looked like a regular Joe was pulled from the stands.
Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.
