Angels announce rotation

Phatferd - proof already for you from the Yankees

Yankees pitcher Jaret Wright will be skipped the first time they go through their rotation this season, according to the Associated Press.

At this point, Wright could see some action in the bullpen or throw a few innings in a lopsided game. While this hurts his fantasy value some, he will return to the rotation on April 15.


So by your logic with Wright skipping his first start, as the No. 5 starter for the Yankees he will now go up against other teams No. 1's. See how quickly it can change.

We may not be experts but we've provided a TON of evidence that goes against your MVP 2005 simulation.

I just don't see how you can say I am wrong, not that you are. I averaged out all these pitchers witht he number next to their names if you add them all up you get 49 (if you add teh ? to a 5) divide that by 18 which is how many starts he had and it averages out to 2.7

My whole argument is that he will face a MAJORITY of players closer to his spot in the rotation than the front. 2.7 is closer to 4 than 1.

For the 1,000th time I didn't simulate, I was wrong to use the word simulate in my earlier post. I didn't collect any statistical data from it, I just used it to see what order of the rotation he matched up with. Not the person, just the order. The game is 100 percent accurate with this, there is no way around that. Its not like I said Escobar will have a 2.50 era with 15 wins. It matches up that the Angels in game 40 plays team X in their 43rd game. Thats all I used it for.

Byrd 4th is great news for Escobar owners.

Instead of facing Texas twice in the first week like Lackey and Washburn will, Escobar goes against AAA KC and Oakland.

Oakland fans think they aren't a weak offensive team :-°

I agree with New England, I don't see how the A's will do much THIS YEAR.

And New England brings up another good point about who Escobar will face team wise for the first couple of weeks at least.
