Mike Hampton still wants to pitch

Nov 9, 2010, 10:30 AM EDT

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.

    He HAS to pitch next year! Otherwise I’ll have to shut down the annual “Guess The Date Mike Hampton Is Announced As Out For The Year” pool for good.

    The zombie reference makes this writeup dead on for Trevor Hoffman.

    Come on, I’m sure an A ball team could use the guy to pitch 2 games for them and fall apart immediately after, right?
