A 1st round pick by the St. Louis Cardinals in 1996, Looper also had stints with the Marlins and Mets during his 12-year career.
Of course, folks around here will remember Milwaukee as the last place Looper every threw a major league pitch. In 2009, Looper started the most games in the majors while with the Crew (34), yet accumulated only 194.2 innings en route to a 5.22 ERA. He also gave up a league-leading 39 home runs.
It’s fair to note that Looper did have some very good years with the Mets and Marlins, but Milwaukee is not the place to come to resurrect your career (just ask Eric Gagne). Best of luck to you in retirement, Loop.
