I'm not a man of many words. Read my posts, and you'll see what I mean.
Some people are Optimists (They see the glass 1/2 full).
Others are Pessimists (They see the glass 1/2 empty).
Me, I'm a Realist. 1/2 empty IS 1/2 full.

I came in here ready to say Alex Trevino. He couldn't hit, and by the time he was a Red, he couldn't throw the ball to second base without bouncing it on the turf.
But the comments about Kevin Jarvis convinced me that he was indeed the worst pitcher in the history of baseball.
". . . acquiring J. Blanton from Oakland for, apparently, Bailey/Cueto, Votto and a lesser prospect. I do it in a second . . . The Reds' equation this year is simple: Make Matt Belisle your #3 starter . . . trade for Blanton, win 85 or more, be in the mix all summer." - Paul Daugherty, Feb. 8, 2008

The names make me want to retch. What's worse is the number of innings they were allowed to pitch.
