#92: Mike “Old Mother” Hubbard

Are you feeling bad about your job today? Want to make it worse? Chew on this. Mike Hubbard made more than six figures for six years in the big leagues. That’s right. Mike Hubbard made probably over $1M by sucking at his job for six years.

It seriously is Mike Hubbard.

I swear that’s Mike Hubbard. And I swear the card is signed.

To give you an idea of how awful Hubbard was, if you project his career stats to a 162-game season, he would average 6 walks against 94 strikeouts. In his second season with the Cubs, Hubbard put up a .105 average, which actually made his OBP jealous (.103).

Was Hubbard even bringing a bat to the plate? Folks, if you’re reading this, and you ever find yourself in the Major Leagues, and your batting average is ever flirting with double digits, please, for my sake, just go ahead and try to hit with your wang. Trust me, you’d rather be remembered as “the guy who tried to hit with his wang,” than “the guy who batted .105.”

Low Point: July 7, 1996. Hubbard’s line at the end of that game? .040 BA, .038 OBP, .040 SLG, .078 OPS.

HoeLeeShit

Did You Know? Hubbard was part of a battery with Amaury Telemaco when one of the 665 triple plays in Major League history was recorded on May 10, 1997 against the Giants.

    Thanks, Kerm.

    I had no recollection whatsoever of Mike Hubbard, until you crammed him back into my memory.

    I crammed Hubbard back into the old cupboard, eh? At least it’s not longer bare.
