Peavy went from 7.21 in '03 to 9.36 in '04.

In '05 he had 9.58 K/9.

Using Peavy as an example, it's possible Myers improves next season.


Thank you David. This was exactly the type of example I was looking for when I posted this topic.


How about Ben Sheets coming out of nowhere:

2002: 7.06
2003: 6.40
2004: 10.03
2005: 8.10 (injured during season)

That is a ridiculous jump in K/9 between '03 and '04. :-o

Wow, good call on that one too RynMan. I don't think Myers is there yet but I would love to see him jump into Peavy/Sheets territory. It can only help if the fences get moved back in Philly (which is currently being discussed). As a Phils fan I'd love to see him take another step forward.
