Biggest Gas Cans of 2020

Recommended Posts

What does it mean when a pitcher is described as a "gas can"?

I've heard a few old timers say it and I get the impression it's not a good thing. What does it mean and where did the saying come from

Answer:  a gas can is the opposite of a fireman or ace relief pitcher. They throw gas onto the fire rather than putting out the fire (opponents rally).

I remember 30 years ago the Angels bullpen was so bad they were called the Arson Squad
