The Burlington Moose drafted Wayne "World be Free" Zerbe for 4,000,000 and has been a solid ML pitcher. With a big league career record of 103 -48 with a ERA of 3.24. I'm suprised he has played in only 2 All-Star games. With no Awards to speak of, Zerbe just gets the job done. He does have a nice shiny WS ring to show for his labors tho. FUTURE: He has 1 more year on his contract. So he may be dealt next year if he refuses a contract extension. Because of his lack of stamina he will not win a Cy-young.
