That’s Todd Zeile’s ERA this year, after giving up five runs in the eighth inning tonight. Normally a third baseman, Zeile was called to the mound to try and preserve the Mets’ bullpen, which has been strained lately — particularly by tonight’s 19-8 pasting from the Expos.

A knuckleballer, Zeile previously pitched one inning for the Rockies in 2002.

Dave Studeman was called a "national treasure" by Rob Neyer. Seriously. Follow his sporadic tweets @dastudes.
