Used, Used, Sometimes Abused

This baseball column in the Palm Beach Post lists the current active leaders in a statistical category called "Pitcher Abuse Points," which denote how much pitchers have been left too late in games to throw too many pitches. The leaders:

Livan Hernandez (Nationals) is first, Jason Schmidt (Giants) is second, Barry Zito (A's) is sixth and Dontrelle Willis (Marlins) is seventh. Rounding out the Top 10 are Aaron Harang, Carlos Zambrano and John Smoltz at Nos. 3-5 with Bronson Arroyo, Curt Schilling and Brett Myers at Nos. 8-10.
Yes, Brett Myers is in the Top 10 for Pitcher Abuse Points. How apropos.
