Mike Hampton still wants to pitch

3 Comments

Ken Rosenthal reports that Mike Hampton — fresh off a 0.00 ERA season (in which he faced 16 batters) — wants to pitch in 2011.

At this point Hampton is a zombie, right? Shambling around, unaware that he died about five years ago?  He’s not eating anyone’s brain as far as we know, but as long as there is a GM who remembers that Hampton was pretty spiffy back when they still played baseball in the Astrodome, he presents a threat.

If anyone gives him anything other than a non-roster invite at this point there’s no helping them.
