Michael Martinez is Bad at Baseball

As a Phillies fan, I am well aware of the magnitude of suck that Michael Martinez brings to a team.  However, poor Pirates fans may have no clue what they're getting into.  I'm here to make it blatantly clear just how awful Mini-Mart is.Since 1901, 4439 batters (non-pitchers), have been to the plate 400+ times (Martinez currently at 407 plate apperances).  He ranks 4427th...

Tossing Zeros

It's a tradition here at More Hardball to track pitchers through the beginning of the season that have not allowed an earned run. It's almost always a reliever that racks up the longest string of appearances and innings to be last man standing. Since we're only through the first month, the innings minimum is 10, but will increase as the season goes on. I'm venturing...

Bad Contracts are the En Vogue Thing to Do

It's an Epidemic!Seems like even the bad players are making big money nowadays.
