Jonathan Broxton Is The Worst Pitcher In Baseball

That is what one poor spring outing means, right?

Just kidding, of course. But he did do poorly in a spring game today, so that does tend to get the masses riled up with a firestorm of “OMGWTFBBQ”, and I figure that’s what people will want to talk about so I might as well put a  post up for you about it.

To be completely fair, I did not watch this afternoon’s game, so I can’t comment directly on how he looked. Clearly, giving up a dinger, a walk, a HBP, and two singles doesn’t sound great, and I’m not here to defend that. If I can say anything about today’s game, it’s that I don’t care one bit about the three stolen bases, because he didn’t have a major league catcher (as Eric Stephen noted, Hector Gimenez hasn’t stopped any of his seven spring baserunners), and it’s more likely than not that he was focusing on the batter while not caring about the runners, because again, spring.

Now’s about the time where I’d usually point out that one spring inning doesn’t mean anything at all, though I know that many have a hard time thinking rationally when it comes to Broxton. I’ll admit that I too believe that he needs to get off to a good start right off the bat, or he’ll have reached the point of no return with this club. If anything concerns me, it’s not today’s outing, it’s that he’s failed to get even one strikeout against the twelve men he’s faced. On a team that looks to have a mediocre offense and a possibly lousy defense (Casey Blake had two errors today), it’s vital that the pitching staff carries the load. With injuries to Jon Garland (who’s almost certainly starting on the DL) and Vicente Padilla, an ineffective Jonathan Broxton might be one hurdle too much. Short leash or no, March 10 is hardly the date to be making rash decisions, but even I am going to reach my limits in terms of defending him at some point.
