Tallet gets sucked into the Sarlacc Pit of Pitching Death
Countless men go in, but none emerge alive.
It is known as the Sarlacc Pit of Pitching Death, and last night at Tropicana Field it claimed its latest victim: Brian Tallet.
All you need to do is look at his pitching line to find out what happened: 80 pitches to get through 4 innings while giving up five earned runs.
Add that to Tallet’s pitching line in Tampa Bay last year, and you have one fugly looking record in St. Petersburg the past few seasons:
3 starts: 12.2 innings, 18 earned runs, and a 12.79 ERA.
Need I say more?
