After their 19-1 loss Monday night to Cleveland, the Kansas City Royals sent right-hander Vin Mazzaro down to Triple-A Omaha and recalled left-hander Everett Teaford.

Mazzaro gave up 14 runs in 2 1-3 innings to the Indians, breaking the Royals record of 11 runs allowed in a game.



Vin Mazzaro = feelsbadman?

hows that possible? 14 runs?

do you not start thinking about putting in another pitcher after the 2nd or 3rd run?

their starter got hurt after 20 pitches, they left him in because they needed him to give them length. They probably sent him down right away to recall a fresh pitcher for tomorrow, not just to rub it in his face or whatever.

he came in for the Starter who got 1 out i think and walked off the field with the trainer. He had to eat up innings, so Yost left him in.

And it is possible becuase when the Indians arn't facing pitchers with ERA's of 2 or lower for 3 series in a row, they score a lot of runs typically.

Thought it was shocking they wouldn't go to someone else, but then I remembered who the manager is and as Brewers fan I can't say I'm surprised. Good ol' Edgar never liked pulling pitchers.

pretty sure they could have gotten some fan out of the stands to pitch better than that

"hey little billy, ever wanted to pitch in the majors? Welcome to the team! Now get out there and get us some outs!"

No way is that the worst performance in baseball history.


The worst manager in baseball history perhaps.


99.9% of pitchers are taken out before these incidents can occur. It's the managers fault for not nipping it in the butt.. He basically said "we lose, **** it" and left him out there.

Pitchers have given up 4+ runs without ever getting an hour.. thats worse of an ERA than this guys 7 out performance.

This.

He basically sacraficed him, This isn't the pitchers fault. He put in a bad performance in a bad position, but the manager should of stopped it from happening.

I understand that they needed someone to eat some innings, but a manager should not let any pitcher get abused like that. =notcoolman.jpg

agreed, he is going to have a mental block follow him the rest of his life. He will never compete at the big league level again.

i find that to be awesome. i actually think i might be able to strike out a guy or two, simply because they arent used to pitches so terribly slow lol, it would be like a super knuckleball :p

Pretty ridiculous they kept him in. He'll be known for this for a LONG time and it will be very hard for him to forget. The fact that this could have easily been avoided makes it even worse.

What really shocks me is he's had two semi-decent seasons (for a young pitcher) as a starting pitcher for the A's. Why would you destroy the morale of a kid who's obviously on a solid pace?
