2007 Released a month into the season when he couldn`t get anyone out.
2006 Sometimes Sabean`s geezer fetish nets a useful bit of well-aged meat instead of carrion. Fassero was miscast as an emergency starter six times (6.43 ERA), which makes his full-season line a lot uglier than it would be if he`d been limited to a short relief or LOOGY role. As a reliever, his ERA was 3.00, and he held lefties to .194/.286/.204 with no home runs in 93 at-bats. Fassero didn`t reach the majors until he was 28, so you can`t hold his getting some extra time at the back end of his career against him. Still, considering his age and the weak performances of recent years, there`s a good chance he`ll never do this well again.
2003 Fassero spent an inordinate amount of time struggling with pitching from the stretch last year, which you can’t live with from someone who’s moved on to situational relief work in his golden years. The solution? He gave up, pitching from a full windup full-time. It’ll be interesting to see if this is something that Duncan addresses in camp, because striving to fulfill their need to go through every old lefty in the quest to replace the long-gone Rick Honeycutt, the Cards have already re-signed Fassero. They’d already cycled through both Tony Fossas and Jesse Orosco.
2002 Fassero had a nice run in April and May as the closer, even showing off low-90s velocity that nobody thought he had left in him. Fassero had made 58 appearances by August 1, his highest total since 1992, and a trio of game-blowing outings in August didn’t get as much attention as the implosions of one-man wrecking crews such as Turk Wendell. Fassero isn’t a situational reliever; he just knows how to pitch, has a good assortment, and usually keeps the ball in the infield.
2001 It was a better season than 1999, which is about the best you can say of Fassero's performance. Aside from a five-start stretch in May, he was a pretty lousy pitcher last year. His pitches don’t have the drop they had in his halcyon days with Montreal, and he pitched seven innings only once all year. Lousy-and-durable has its place. Lousy-and-fragile should spell retirement. Or Cub.
2000 Historically, the odds of an aging pitcher’s bouncing back from a season like Fassero's 1999 are pretty low. His park-adjusted ERA was a whopping 42% higher than the AL average. Seventeen pitchers in major-league history have had full seasons at age 36 or older with a park-adjusted ERA at least 30% higher than the league average. Of those 17, none managed an above-average park-adjusted ERA over the remainder of his career, and only three--Bert Blyleven, Frank Tanana and Jim Kaat--managed to keep their figures within 10% of the league average.
1999 Shook off arm soreness in the spring to post a pretty good season. I still worry that the workload will catch up to him someday, but if he stays healthy into July, he'll be excellent trade bait for the Ms to dangle.
1998 A disappointing year because of injuries, but still an excellent starting pitcher, and one of the exceptionally valuable class of pitchers who induces a ton of groundballs and strikeouts. If your team doesn’t have one, write a letter.
1997 A fine pitcher who finally received some overdue attention last year. Fassero has been in the majors for only six years, but he’s 34, and some decline should be expected. He’s a groundball/strikeout pitcher, extremely unusual for a left-hander and something that should make the transition to the Kingdome easier. Figuring in the league transition and the decline in the defense behind him, his ERA could easily climb a run this year. With the Mariners offense, of course, that still means he’s a potential 20-game winner.
1996  He's one of the most underappreciated pitchers in baseball, and coming off a poor season, but is one of the 10 best left-handed starters in the game today. He's an extreme groundball pitcher who racks up strikeouts, a rare and desirable commodity. If his control improves a little and the Expos provide him with good run support, he could surprise everyone by winning 20 games this year.

2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)FYI, next couple of HOF classes are thin. Best candidates for 2011 are Bagwell, Raffy Palmeiro (zero shot), Kevin Brown, Al Leiter and Larry Walker. Best candidates for 2012 are Bernie Williams, Tim Salmon and....I dunno, Carl Everett? Rick Helling?
(El Angelo from elangelo@gmail.com)
The 2012 class is thinner than prison gruel. Honestly there aren't five guys among this lot who would get more than a single paragraph out of me in the JAWS series:

Edgardo Alfonzo, Pedro Astacio, David Bell, Jeromy Burnitz, Vinny Castilla, Scott Erickson, Carl Everett, Jeff Fassero, Alex S. Gonzalez, Danny Graves, Rick Helling, Dustin Hermanson, Jose Hernandez, Brian Jordan, Matt Lawton, Javy Lopez, Bill Mueller, Terry Mulholland, Jeff Nelson, Phil Nevin, Brad Radke, Joe Randa, Tim Salmon, Ruben Sierra, Jose Vizcaino, Bernie Williams, Eric Young (Jay Jaffe)
