Red Sox minor-leaguer Drake Britton was supposedly driving 110 mph in a pickup at 4:45 in the morning while drunk over the weekend.
I'm kind of surprised they didn't release him on the spot.
Mike MacDougal, holds an obscure major league pitching record
Most career saves by a guy whose middle name is Meiklejohn?
Is it something to do with him starting his first 3 games ever and then pitching 404 games in relief?
Kling eventually did report to the Reds and had a pretty good year, hitting .273/.318/.364 (95 OPS+) in 80 games as Tommy Clarke’s backup. It was Kling’s final season in pro baseball.
EDIT: He's 15th all-time. #1 pitched 786 games primarily for Detroit, Oakland, and Baltimore.
Most MLB seasons with the same W-L record?
This is getting warmer, but it's not what I had in mind.
Britton was BA's #11 prospect for the Red Sox - they're not releasing him.
eluded police in pursuit by swerving between vehicles before leaving the road and driving down an incline and eventually knocking over a barbed-wire fence. Police said Britton then tried to drive through a wooded area.
Is it most 1-loss seasons?
Only pitcher to have 3 different 20-save seasons that were neither preceded or followed by another 20-save season?
From what I've read, he throws a fastball in the low 90s and doesn't have a MLB-ready breaking ball. It's sort of weird to me that a low draft pick who's about to turn 24 and doesn't appear to be close to the majors would have any value other than organizational filler.
A poster at Royals Review attended a Q&A with the CEO of MLBAM, and apparently the blackout restrictions during FOX broadcasts are being lifted in 2014. Hooray!
His fastball is consistently in the 92-93 mph range.
Four-seam fastball sits 92-94 mph and tops out at 95 mph, showing good downward life and hop when on top of the ball.
