Tallet gets sucked into the Sarlacc Pit of Pitching Death

Wednesday, June 9, 2010  |  by 

Countless men go in, but none emerge alive.

It is known as the Sarlacc Pit of Pitching Death, and last night at Tropicana Field it claimed its latest victim: Brian Tallet.

All you need to do is look at his pitching line to find out what happened: 80 pitches to get through 4 innings while giving up five earned runs.

Add that to Tallet's pitching line in Tampa Bay last year, and you have one fugly looking record in St. Petersburg the past few seasons:

3 starts: 12.2 innings, 18 earned runs, and a 12.79 ERA.

Need I say more?


  1. I was thinking Thunderdome would be a better comparison. Two men enter, one man leaves.

  2. Another movie injustice, I've never seen any of the Mad Max movies either. But yeah, that makes more sense. For some reason, the first thing that came to mind was the Sarlacc pit - maybe it was because of that Star Wars kick I was on last week.

  3. No Mad Max movies?
    I...I don't think I can read your blog anymore.

  4. I know, it's on my must-watch list ... along with Shawshank Redemptions and any of the Rocky movies.
