The Best Catch in 100 Years said:In a similar vein, Mark Eichhorn for the Blue Jays in 1986: 166 K, 45 BB, 8 HR, 1.72 ERA in 157 IP. Interesting how much RP usage has changed over the last 20-30 years, though I guess this year Drew Smyly is racking up a lot of quality innings (should end up right around 100 for the year) in a pretty similar role to what Eichhorn and Hernandez played.
At least Jimy Williams didn't abuse Eichhorn.....157 IP out of the pen in 69 outings followed by 127 IP in 89 games the following year?
Meaningless Stat of the Day: During Eichhorn's 11 season career he wore 8 different uniform numbers.
