Great dude. Have fun with Loewen and his 5 BB/9 which is what he's done his entire career. He has not shown enough improvement despite the number of years he's been pitching. His control is AWFUL. Until he shows some semblance of control, I don't know how you can argue that he will become a superstar this year which is the title of the thread.
I am saving this thread so we can revisit at the end of the year.
No matter how many times you say it, you still ignore the fact that as a 22 year old, Loewen made a huge leap forward in his control. He did almost as well as a 22 year old in the majors as Erik Bedard did as a 25 year old. Loewen was predicted to be a superstar back when he was first drafted. That's his pedigree. I expect him to make a big leap forward in the next two years.
Save whatever you want. As I said, trying to predict when/if a pitcher will break out is next to impossible. Even guys like Sickels do hardly better than chance. What I do know is that your analysis of Loewen's stats is flawed and your clearly knew squat about his pedigree.
