Ever heard of Jimmy Scott? Neither had I until this morning. I didn’t think it was possible to not know a pitcher with 330 career wins and 4,022 career strikeouts, but we all make oversights from time to time. It makes sense, then, that he calls himself “the best pitcher you never heard of.” If you haven’t checked out his website, Jimmy Scott’s High & Tight, you can mosey on over there and check out his interview with Scott Brosius. It provides some insight into the latter years of Brosius’s career, as well as his decision to retire at age 34 after the 2001 season.
Disclaimer: If you believe Jimmy Scott is a real player, or believe that I believed it…I don’t even know what to say to you.
