The Ineffectiveness of Seanez

Rudy Seanez's ineffectiveness is of mythical proportions. He is the 4th-worst reliever in Major League Baseball in preventing inherited runners from scoring. The worst? Ray King, the guy he was going to be traded for. Julian Tavarez is 7th-worst in the AL. Want to know something interesting about those batters Seanez is facing? The OPS of the batters he faces is the worst among regular Red Sox pitchers, at .758. Mike Timlin's are the best, at an even .800. Papelbon's and Beckett's are the 2nd best, at .788.
