Stephen Tarpley apparently has been playing Major League Baseball. The Mets have claimed him from Miami.
He had an impressive 9.00 ERA in 2020 – oh wait, higher is bad – and his career ERA is over 6 and you millennials will be upset to hear he has a Negative Career WAR so that means we can all easily imagine a hypothetical player who would be better.
But who cares. Steve has billions of dollars. This is all pretend. Stick this guy at AAA until we have to play a Covid induced triple header with three 5 inning games and we need a body to pitch an inning.
Bring me ALL the players!*
The asterisk was for Trevor Bauer. Let the Yankees deal with that crap. He’ll be a fine Yankee.
