  • You did forget Aumont and Withrow though who also have some upside.

      Aumont is probably going to end up being a great reliever, something not nearly as valuable as a good starter. Withrow has some upside I suppose, but I don't really know what to expect from him.

        Didn't he put up a 4.77 FIP last year? He's obviously going to get better, but it's a bit presumptuous of you to say that nobody except for those 3 is ever going to put up 4th/5th starter numbers.

          I agree with you but just wanted to mention the other 2 "bigger" names.

            His FIP was high because he was a groundout pitcher who didn't strike out too many. FIP always kills groundball pitchers.

              tRA didn't like him either.

              • Moskos projects more as a reliever/closer in the majors. Reason why he started the past few seasons is to build up his arm and his repitore(sp).

                  FIP doesn't take into play his great ground ball numbers, which is why his xFIP is 4.32 aka lower. The predictions that he has for this season are ******* stupid though, and only Bill James seemingly gives him an actual improvement.

                  You're just mad that he's going to be better than David Price.

                    xFIP has nothing to do with groundballs btw.

                    You're just mad David Price has upside.

                      I just took a look at the projections. It's weird they all have him pitching fewer innings this year.

                            Less upside than Porcello has. Porcello already has very good control (NOT THAT HARD TO DO PRICE) with a great ability to induce ground balls and he showed in Game 163 that he has the stuff to strike out people. Price is almost 3 and a half years older than Porcello.

                              FIP but with league average HR/FB.

                                FIP with a normalized homer rate.
