I agree. haha is right he doesn't deserve his record;-D

Thank god his ERA is that high now, b/c as usual Madison, you're right about him possibly still winning the Cy Young with a bad ERA, but most likely not with one [i]this[i/] bad. :-P

Poor Brandon Webb. :,-( Imagine his record with the Braves offense. :-? He has what, 20 quality starts? That should be good for 20 wins and maybe one or two losses, since he only gave up 4 er once. 20-2 or something like that, WOW 8-o 8-o


I don't think Ortiz will win the Cy. His era is just too high. His record is due to the Braves offense, not his pitching.

Yep, Webb's record would be unbelievable with the Braves offense behind him.

Can you imagine Schmidt with the Brave's offense behind him? He'd probably be 19-1 by now!

Or Kevin Brown as well. Even Zito would have a good record with some sort of offense behind him.

Remember Chris George (SP-KC)? He usually gives up somewhere between 6-7 runs and still picks up a win....If Russ doesn't deserve to pick up the win, who does? Millwood maybe?

If you own Ortiz, you just basically have to make a decision not to watch/listen to the first 3 innnings of any game.

He has given up more runs in the first inning than any other (26). He picks up steam as he moves along and his concentration improves. If he can beat the first inning curse -- which is purely a mental thing -- then he'll be an elite pitcher.

Now he's a good pitcher with superb run support.

Not a chance with his era. My vote is still for Gagne.
