Baseball April 20th, 2009
With Jeff Suppan throwing 6 innings and giving up only 2 runs on 8 hits and a walk and Chien-Ming Wang giving up 8 runs in 1.1 IP, Jeff Suppan is no longer the worst pitcher in baseball. When reached for quote Jeff Suppan said “I’m a human being. Nobody feels worse than I do when I pitch horribly,” he went on to say that nothing makes him feel better than when another pitcher, in this case Wang, manages to pitch worse. When asked if he knew if Wang would pitch that horribly, thus supplanting him as the worst starting pitcher in baseball Suppan said "That was one of my plans."
Wang was unable to be reached for a quote.
