March 27

1999 Upper Deck #339 - Jaime Navarro

On this day in 1967, the abysmal Jaime Navarro was born.

I only say abysmal because Jaime Navarro's time with the White Sox could only be described as getting a root canal done without Novocaine by a three year old Capuchin monkey using a rusty fork covered in dog feces and pig vomit. Jaime's "accomplishments" with the Chicago White Sox included leading the league in wild pitches, hits allowed, and earned runs allowed in 1997; leading the league in wild pitches and losses in 1998; and improving only enough in 1999 to not lead the league in any worst category. The biggest contribution Navarro ever made to the White Sox was bringing Jose Valentin and Cal Eldred to the team when Jaime and John Snyder were traded to the Milwaukee Brewers in January 2000.

Navarro finished his three year stint with the Chicago White Sox sporting a 25-43 record, a 6.06 ERA and 696 hits allowed in eighty-seven starts and one hundred two total games played.
