Last Sunday, pnoles explored the last ~15 years of LOOGY pitching for the White Sox. That 15-year history has been, shall we say, less than stable. But what about left-handed relief pitching in general? In addition to LOOGYs, how have other left-handed relievers fared with the White Sox, and what does that cohort look like if we extend the time frame back multiple decades? Today’s Sporcle will ask you to do just that: name the left-handed relievers who have pitched for the White Sox since 1990 (see the Quiz Parameters section for details). Good luck!
- To qualify for this list, a pitcher must have logged at least 20 innings with the White Sox, AND 100% of their appearances must have come in relief. So that means, to use two recent examples, that Jace Fry (less than 20 innings) and David Holmberg (also started 7 games in addition to his relief work) do not qualify for this list.
- Last names only are accepted, as always, as well as both first and last. One pitcher on here will also accept the first name.
- You’ll be given 10 minutes to attempt completion.
- For hints, I’ve provided the season, innings pitched, and ERA.
Useless information to amaze, annoy, confound, and/or confuse your friends:
- The players on this list have posted an average ERA of 4.10 over 43.7 innings; their average FIP is 4.34.
- The average slash-line against? .247/.333/.384.
- The average strikeout and walk percentages? 19.51 to 10.37, respectively.
