    I made this comp on another Kyle Gibson thread. But he is similar to Brandon Webb, albeit not quite as good.

    Typical sinker pitchers like Carlos Silva or Pelfrey have very low K rates, 4 per 9...

    He had a sub 3.00 ERA last year in AAA with 7.75 K per 9. And his MO is ground balls.

    Yeah, but Webb was able to put up great numbers with only a 7 k per 9, because os his ground balls. Pitchers usually are either K guys or ground ball guys. Webb was able to excel at the ground balls...

    I don't have data, but I believe I have read his slider induces a lot of ground balls, versus a Liriano, Randy Johnson, etc.

    Yeah, I agree. He is getting no respect and hopefully that will come in time and help his numbers. A TD article said only 73 percent of his pitches in the zone were called for strikes last year, the...

    Beede looks an awful lot like Trevor May to me. The Twins don't really care that May has struck out 814 batters in 680 innings. Last year he K'd 159 in 151 innings. His ERA was 4.15 if you remove his...

    Webb was a very, very good pitcher. Career 3.27 ERA, has won 22 games. 33 WAR across only 6 seasons.

    I think 4.8 K per 9 in the major leagues is an anomoly. First, we are going off 11 innings. ...

    If they both have very good stuff and one has control question marks and one doesn't, I think you take the one without.

    It looks like the three that will be gone are Aiken, Rodon, and Kolek. I would be pretty surprised if we have a shot. I think the mix at #5 is Hoffman, Beede, Jackson, and maybe one of the SS.

    Just give Santana a shot now. He is going to hit 100 basis points better than Florimon and probably as good as Nunez, but be better defensively (than Nunez). Consistency out of our SS is not really...

    I think K per 9 is not a great way to evaluate a guy whose main objective is to keep the ball down and get ground balls.

    Having said that, I think Gibson will settle in with a slightly higher K/9...

    Dozier is pushing his way to be a top 10 2B. I don't see Boston giving up what it would take to pry him away, just to be a 2-3 months stop gap.

    This is not happening. Drew for some money makes way more sense. I would like to see a team friendly deal for Dozier

    .775 seems like a high bar, that would have put him top 5 in OPS among 2B last year. Given that we really like his glove, if he is in the .730 range or higher I would consider a deal with him. It...

    Maybe Pelfrey or Pedro come close. But the point was your best player and worst two players should not be the most criticized.

    He is hitting .250 9 games in and has a career .323 average. A lot fewer o-fer's than most.
