I agree with the K rate statement as well, it's almost like Roy Halladay back in his Cy Young year. The dude got 200+ K's, but he didn't strikeout people at the same rate other elite pitchers did. Therefore, shields is more likely to get more K's than BD.


Yes, last year's injury in the spring was a freak accident. But, what you are missing is that in October 2003 he had surgery on his elbow and knee. His nose was ready to do minor league rehab last year by the first week of May. However, he was pulled from his first rehab appearance because of problems with his elbow. He spent another month rehabbing that before returning to the roster.

The injury risk is his elbow, not his nose.

Shields will get more K's, period. It's not hard to see when you look at the numbers, lol.

Shields will be the main setup man. Shields is the most valuable of the sett up guys. I live in SoCal and go to tons of Angel games and Shields will be the main guy. He will get some saves, a few cheap wins, good ERA and Ration, and a lot of Ks. Shields may get some spot starts early...but only because Bartolo is a little hurt.
