  • Man, can the Pirates play the Cubs all year? 6-1 against them with a very low ERA.

    • Lincecum Day has sucked for the last 3-4 weeks.

      Happy Memorial Day everyone!
      The Brian Sabean sig is no more. I disagreed with you on so many levels. And then you went out and built a dynasty. I am lame.

        It's really hard for me to see 0.86 ERA and a .176 opponent batting average, along with 1 homerun and only 25 walks in 75+ innings as "luck." He's dominant and more than 9 years younger than Halladay. I think ya'll are crazy if you would take Halladay over Jimenez going forward. But that's me...Maybe I'm biased, because he has carried my fantasy team all year.

          Extremely high strand rate, extremely low HR/FB% and a very low BABIP. He's been very good, but for THIS YEAR, I would take Halladay going forward.

            What's the wager? Wins, ERA, K's, CG's, I'll take Jimenez for any.

              Greinke is 1-6 and is still pretty damn good, so that rules out your wins. Jimenez is not going to keep up this pace (Greinke had slightly worse basic numbers last year but far better peripherals at the time, and that's why he was able to keep it up) with his ERA, so that's not really very important. Halladay is the king of complete games in terms of any pitcher, and K's are pretty much a wash.

              Halladay still wins.

                <+BOE> Scott, with Burfict's character concerns (whether legit or not) you think Pioli would draft him. :D
                <+ScottWright> Why not. Baldwin does need a sparring partner...

                  **** you, but you're right. I've got nothing else. And ERA might be the most overrated stat in all of baseball. That was out of love.

                  • if you divide era by wins per appearance % square rooted then times it by run support plus whip = epicness

                      I'd assume some time within the next couple of weeks.

                      At least the city doesn't have Jeff Suppan.

                        Uh you're forgetting the part where Ubaldo had the fastest fastball the last two years.

                          I don't see how that's relevant to my point.

                              But seriously, he's not juicing. He's just getting better with age. Like a good wine.

                              • Bronson Arroyo decided to have one of his bad games in an important game. Great.
