The Red Sox have been tough to watch this year. Especially more so than the last few years. In year’s past, I’d watch like 150 games a year. I obviously won’t beat that pace this year. However, one player grinds my gears so much that If I see his name listed as a projected starter, I don’t even bother watching. Ryan Weber is the single worst pitcher I’ve ever seen in my life.
We have that saying. Don’t put your hand on the hot stove. When it comes to Ryan Weber, I don’t even bother. Why would I want to put myself through that pain? If you’re thinking about watching the Red Sox, make sure you check if Weber is starting. If so, he will make your eye balls bleed.
In 3 starts, Weber has a 9.90 ERA across 10 innings. Don’t worry, even the outs he records is ugly. How does a 2.7 K per 9 rate sound? Have you thrown up yet? Weber hasn’t just been bad this year. He has a career 5.43 ERA.
You may be wondering; what makes Weber so atrocious? Great question, glad you asked.
Say it with me… lollipop, lollipop, lollipop! It doesn’t take long to notice that Weber just throws softballs up there. Everything is just a looping pile of garbage. His fastball is 88 MPH and anything that breaks just loops over the plate and gets crushed.
Listen, if the Sox are about trying to get the number one pick, by all means keep troting out the lollipop man. In that case go right ahead. When the Red Sox are ready to win again, Weber can’t be on the roster. I’m not sure the guy belongs in A ball. He’s the single worst pitcher I’ve ever seen in my life.
