2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Two more tries- Don Cardwell or Dick Ellsworth?
(jamin67038 from Wichita, KS)
Nope... I got it. It was Herm Wehmeier. Really. (Steven Goldman)
2010-02-23 13:00:00 (link to chat)Herm Wehmeier has to be one of the worst pitchers ever to have a 13-year career so I suppose he is a comp for every mediocrity who is around for his veteran presence.
(ddanyc from NYC)
And IIRC that's kind of how he kept coming up. PECOTA is a program, not a person, but sometimes it really does develop little tics, fetishes, and obsessions like a person would. Wehmeier was one of its passing fancies. (Steven Goldman)
