Postby GreatestShowOnEarth » Thu Feb 15, 2007 11:17 pm

Looking for Mid Relievers with high K/9's. Shields and Linebrink come to mind, but i cant really think of anyone else. If you could help me out i'd appreciate it.

Linebrink and Scot Shields are definitely in the top 5.

Actually, Linebrink wasn't in the top five in that category last season. He was overused early on and his velocity dropped from 94/95 to 91 for a sizable portion of the season. In September he was back to the mid 90s, so I think he's fine for '07, but I wouldn't put him in the top five for K/9 next season.

I think Zumaya and Broxton top the crop of relievers K/9-wise for 2007.

Not if you go by 2006 numbers using a minimum of 40 IP. Assuming Valverde and FCordero close, the top two MR by K/9 in 2006 would be Julio and Turnbow.

After them comes Eyre, Kuo (if he's counted), MGonzalez, FCabrera, Zumaya, Calero, SCassidy, Farnsworth

The second ten last year were Ohman, Trev Miller, Vizcaino, Soriano, Marte, Speier, Benoit, Aquino, Rhodes, Sherrill.

Like me, I'll bet a lot of you are surprised at who is and isn't on that list.

Broxton has the highest K/9 that i've found. Plus guys like Turnbow while they have great k/9 they kill your era and whip.
