You don't take advice well do you? THINK BEFORE YOU WRITE!!!!!!


I said....... Posada is not worth drafting and Lowell will be a flop.
BIG, BIG difference than saying they will regress as I did for Lincecum.

Yes a regression was fully expected by most but not to the level I predicted.


Hmmm take advice from someone who is always wrong? Yeah I'll pass on that.

Lincecum regression was fully expected by most? Who are those people? Oops never mind. You never have any facts to back up your claims.

15 year old girls are very difficult to predict.

A regression of Posada and Lowell was fully expected by most, not Lincecum. You get so many things wrong it's laughable so yes you should take advice from everyone and anyone.

I'd like to see a list of things I was wrong about other than misinterpreting your poorly communicated posts.

I couldn't have been any clearer but I'm not surprised you struggled with it.

What's happened to Lincecum's regression? Well his Whip and BAA for starters. Both are far worse this season than in 2007.

Maybe you can enlighten me as to how WHIP and BAA are the main indicators when judging a pitcher. I'm looking at:

2007
9.23 K9
4.00 B9
2.31 K/BB
0.74 HR9
3.63 FIP

2008
9.57 K9
3.61 B9
2.65 K/BB
0.21 HR9
2.43 FIP

Lincecum's current BABIP is an absurd .350 which is bound to come down as the season progresses. Yep, you are right and I am obviously wrong. We are witnessing some real regression here. :-D

Who said they were the main indicators? You keep opening your mouth and changing your feet.

They are two very, very important indicators and Lincecum has regressed markedly in both.
