Default Name Top 25 Worst Season ERA for a Sox Starting Pitcher

http://www.southsidesox.com/2017/6/3...g-pitcher-eras

Name the 25 Sox starters with worst seasons ERA in 10 minutes.

I scored a disappointing 14/25. There were some surprising names on this list.

17/25.

Couldn't remember the guy's name from 2002 even thought I could visualize who it was. Should have had the 1995 one. Great quiz.

Contreras twice surprised me - proof positive that one tends to remember a player's good times rather than his bad.

Spoiler alert!


Kind of the flip-side of recent experience bringing in veteran hitters (Dunn, LaRoche, Keppinger, Frazier). Back then, it seemed like whenever we brought in a veteran pitcher, they sucked (Ritchie, Drabek, Navarro etc.).

I got 14 of 25, but I admit I was guessing. A tough quiz.

It was. Ed Walsh Junior played college baseball at Notre Dame, was a mediocre pitcher for the White Sox in the late 1920s, and he died of an illness (heart?) in his early thirties.
