I’m starting this. I feel kinda bad because the whole Jason Neighborgall story is a bit sad but oh my god his B-R page is unbelievably awesome. Long story short, Jason Neighborgall was a pitcher in the Diamondbacks system with legendary stuff with possibly the worst command of all time. The numbers are staggering. Here’s today’s stat.
Padres pitching prospect Robbie Erlin is known for his elite pitchability and command. Over 326.2 minor league innings, Erlin has unintentionally walked a total of 50 batters. In Neighborgall’s brief 42.1 inning career, he unintentionally walked ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY EIGHT BATTERS. Yes, 128.
