Random Saturday Autograph-Victor Santos

Victor pitched in the Major Leagues from 2001-07 for the Tigers, Rockies, Rangers, Brewers, Pirates, Reds & Orioles. He was only with the Orioles for the final month of the 2007 season but, along with Victor Zambrano, formed the Craptastic Dueling Victors. Even in a typically lost September, the Victors stood out for their consistently bad performances on the mound. Santos appeared in only four games, but gave up 5, 4, 3, & 1 run in those games. I guess you could say he was improving with each outing, but I don't want any reliever on my team who ALWAYS gives up at least one run. His 0-2 record with a 8.16 ERA weren't exactly flattering either.

As far as I was able to find, he spent part of the 2009 season with the Newark Bears in the independent Atlantic League, and hasn't pitched professionally in the US since then.

I'd actually forgotten that Santos pitched for the Bears in 2009... then again, they did come close to using 100 different players that year.

The Craptastic Dueling Victors. That's frakin' hilarious.

Wow, how do you use that many players in one season?

Ryan, I'm not even exaggerating that much on the 2009 Newark Bears - they really did have around 80+ players. (I never managed an exact count because the number of position players who pitched and pitchers who hit and/or played the field made a mess of the stat sheets.)

Every day I went to the ballpark seemed to involve a roster move.

Wow, but now that you bring it up, I do remember your writing about all the roster moves.
