Weaver (2-10, 6.32)         Trachsel (5-7, 4.97)

In 20 starts, Steve Trachsel has a 0.70 K/BB ratio. The next-worst over the past three years? Steve Trachsel in 2006, at 1.01. Of the three things a pitcher needs to do to succeed - throw strikes, miss bats, and keep the ball down - he does exactly none of them well. He's also deathly slow. Say hello to the worst skillset in baseball.
