In general, I've got something of a soft spot for knuckleballers. I wasted some emotional time and effort supporting Jared Fernandez a couple years back, and that sure was futile, but us knuckleball aficonados, we're a resilient bunch.
That having been said, is it too early to start with the Steve Sparks jokes?
- With 25 pitchers in camp, Sparks ranks 25th in spring ERA with a rock solid 18.00
- Sparks also features a WHIP of 3.00, a number high enough to be problematic
when facing big-leaguers
- You like new stats? How about K/HR? Sparks is at precisely one, which leads
me to hope he keeps the strikeouts down this afternoon.
