    Is former Red Andy Larkin the worst pitcher ever?

    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?
    My dad got to enjoy 3 Reds World Championships by the time he was my age. So far, I've only gotten to enjoy one. Step it up Redlegs!

    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.

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