The Brooklyn Superbas select LHP Jesse Orosco

“Who is the best left-handed reliever of all time? The best left-handed reliever specializing in getting out lefties, by far, has been Jesse Orosco. He has been consistently effective for 20 years at a job that most people can’t do two years in a row.”— Bill James

One knock on Jesse is that he suffered from Steve Calrton-itis, and stuck around for about 5 years too long to the detriment of his career ratios. Looking at Orosco’s very lengthy prime years from 1982 to 1998, he had a 2.93 ERA (136 ERA+) and a 1.22 WHIP
