YearComment
2001 Andrew Lorraine continued his nomadic existence in 2000, getting dumped by the Cubs after opening the season in their rotation, then moving on to a competitive team--the Bisons. Anybody with a shutout in the last two seasons is going to get as many chances as Pauly Shore, but Haney is the better choice as a sixth starter.
2000 He tossed a three-hit shutout in his season debut against the Astros, followed by 42 runs in the remaining 52 2/3 innings he pitched for the Cubs. It was the first shutout by a Cubsí left-hander since Jamie Moyer tossed one in 1988. You know the drill: left-handed, no heat, nice changeup, good command, lots of buses in his past and his future, one hell of a game to remember.
1997 Acquired along with the luckless Charlie Poe from the White Sox for Danny Tartabullís last contract year, Lorraine has gone from being a highly-regarded pitching prospect to someone easily confused with Dana Allison or Curtis Shaw. Heís yet another lefty junkballer, and unlike Doug Johns, he canít even prove that once upon a time he fooled somebody. It may be early to write him off, but heís been a major flop to this point.
1996  Acquired as part of the package sent to Chicago in exchange for Jim Abbott. Lorraine has four pitches, and apparently his velocity has improved since being drafted in '93. He's a longshot for the major league rotation, because if they didn't like Rod Bolton because he didn't throw hard, it'll be hard to see why they wouldn't be biased against Lorraine for the same reason. He was given an AFL assignment, and pitched very poorly. Sent to Oakland for Danny Tartabull, in the mix for an A's rotation spot, along with 41 other guys.
