I was looking through some AAA minor league pages to identify some cost-controllable pitching gambles the Royals might want to take a chance on via a trade (in addition to money spent elsewhere; a fanpost might be up on this soon). Anyway, to my surprise, the Philadelphia Phillies are still allowing Scott Elarton to pitch a baseball at their AAA affiliate the Lehigh Valley IronPigs. Why does this be? Scott Elarton is a man who clearly loves baseball; he's also clearly a man who lost his dignity long ago. Okay, time for a game. Answers will be revealed via a corresponding number further down, so try not to be a dirty cheater and look. Is this former Royals awful pitcher still pitching a baseball? 1- Runelvys Hernandez 2- Denny Bautista 3- Chris George 4- Kyle Snyder 5- Jimmy Gobble 6- D.J. Carrasco 7- Jonah Bayliss (part of Redman trade) 8- Odalis Perez 9- Brett Tomko 10- Dennys Reyes . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . 1- No. 2- Yes! But in Korea 3- No. But it was close! Released by AAA Norfolk (O's) this year. 4- No. 5- No. 6- Yes! 7- Yes! 8- No. 9- Yep! 10- No. At least probably not. Maybe in the deep recesses of a Mexican valley he throws to no one in particular. That's my theory. Still, by a wide margin, Scott Elarton is the most surprising name I came across. For the love of god Elar-time, hang it up.
