7. Brett Lawrie
Brett Lawrie was the Brewers #1 prospect in 2010 and never saw the light of day in Milwaukee, so we can't really blame him for what happened on the field. However, his refusal to play in the Arizona Fall League because he didn't want to was a pretty douche-y move; and then we unearthed these pictures,and let's just say we're glad he's gone.
Thanks for the hits, though.
I'm so jealous of this guy!!!! AHHH!!! My jealousy is killing me!!!!
6. LaTroy Hawkins
Like Jeff Suppan and Doug Davis before him, Latroy Hawkins really didn't play enough games to really ruin things for the Brewers, but his lack of contribution earns him a place on this list. Signed before the season at 2 years and $7.5 million to be Trevor Hoffman's primary set-up man and backup closer, Latroy didn't do any of that.
It started off well with LaTroy allowing zero runs in his first four games, but then bad in his next seven, before realizing that - hey! - maybe he was giving up all these runs and had a slower fastball, because there was something wrong with him, and he headed to the DL for three months. He pitched in just five more games, before heading back to the DL and calling it a season. That's something like $234,000 per inning pitched with an 8.44 ERA.
Suppan-esque in every way.
Born in Gary, Indiana LaTroy serves as further proof that Indiana sucks.
5. Dave Bush
Of all the bad Brewers in 2010, Dave Bush was arguably the best. Let me explain.
Dave Bush was 8-13, not good. His ERA+ was 87, not really that good. His ERA was 4.54, not good, but respectable. He gave up 1.5 homeruns per 9, that's pretty bad. Dave Bush also put up a career best 18 Quality Starts, and that has to count for something right? His starts were of quality, right? Right?
Wrong. Good riddance.
Remember that game he gave up all those homeruns? Oh wait, that was every game.
