“NEW YORK (AP) — Jo-Jo Reyes says his winless streak isn't bothering him. His only focus when he steps on the mound is the next pitch, regardless of the hitter or the ballpark. Everybody else has certainly taken notice.

Reyes hasn't been the winning pitcher since June 13, 2008, when he beat the Los Angeles Angels as a member of the Atlanta Braves. His 28-game winless stretch matches that of Matt Keough, who didn't win a game for the Athletics from Sept. 6, 1978, to Aug. 8, 1979.” (USAToday.com)

But no, they kept and still keep throwing him out there like a leg of lamb in shark infested waters.
