BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2016 Scott Carroll was Kyle Orton's backup quarterback at Purdue, which still has a chance to be the first line of his obituary.
2015 Scott Carroll might be the most anonymous player to have thrown over 120 innings in 2014. The White Sox non-tendered him in December, making for a sad Christmas Carroll.
