BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2011 After spending three seasons in Japan, Brian Sweeney turned in a deceptively effective performance as a part-time mop-up man for Seattle. Only 117 innings into his major-league career, the righty boasts a respectable 3.38 ERA, but his high-80s fastball and career strikeout rate of 4.2 per nine innings donít argue for a reprise performance. The Snakes claimed him off waivers in November, so he'll try not to get smacked around too much in Arizona's bandbox ballpark.
2007 Sweeney was one of the survivors from the slag pits of the Mariners` farm system; unlike the more prized prospects who withered before the whips and cudgels of M`s coaching, Sweeney was an undrafted free agent who just kept poking along. Thrown into the 2004 Jeff Cirillo deal, Sweeney spent the first three months of 2006 in the Pads` pen before going back down to gear up for starting, ultimately waiting for an emergency call that never came. He was signed by the Hokkaido Fighters for 2007, so here`s to a guy who managed to hang on and cash in somehow.
2005 Two starts all year, both against Randy Johnson, and he goes 1-0 with a no-decision. How 'bout them apples?! OK, so Sweeney got smoked in his second tilt with the Unit. But he'll be 31 in June, he'll never be more than a fringe major leaguer, and his name will soon be forgotten by most of the few who know it now. If you were Sweeney, wouldn't you perch your grandkids on your lap 40 years from now, and regale them with your David vs. Goliath tale, the night you shoved a 5.1-4-1-1-0-1-5 line in Randy Johnson's face? Kudos, Brian. Somewhere, Moonlight Graham smiles down on you.
