BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2012 A 2006 fifth-round pick by the Red Sox, Dustin Richardson switched organizations twice in a yearís timeófirst to the Marlins for Andrew Miller, then to the Braves off waivers seven months later. Richardsonís struggles with walks and home runs make him a non-entity barring a gene-swapping incident with Tom Glavine in the near future.
2011 Ever since William James coined the term "multiverse" in 1895, the idea of parallel universes has permeated scientific thought as well as the arenas of cinema and fiction. These theoretical realms can house entire worlds and laws of physics we cannot comprehend, and can even act as alternate, mirrored dimensions of our own, where good is bad and Lindsay Lohan is sober. It's times like these when scientific theory is comforting, as somewhere out there is a universe where Dustin Richardson can throw pitches in the strike zone without watching them end up in the bleachers.
2010 Big lefty Dustin Richardson moved into the bullpen at Double-A last year and set career highs in his strikeout and walks rate, dominating both lefties and righties. After limiting his walks in a brief Triple-A stint, he got a late-September call-up, but his wildness returned in the Arizona Fall League.
