If it's been posted on this site several times over the past 4 years then obviously you have it handy. I haven't seen it and I'd like to see what this 'research' has to show by lumping all 2nd year pitchers with different age, experience, skill and talent.

That's laughable. It's like your posts are scripted. Silly claim. Request for proof. Either ignore or say proof has already been posted countless times, though nobody's seen it. If it's that simple, share it with the community. You also said "based on my research"; so is it work that you did, or something you read? Clearly Yoda's not the only one who hasn't heard this % thrown out before. It may very well be true, and if so, I'm interested in reading about it, because that number seems high to me. Now, I'm certain I'll get a reply about what a dullard I am, etc. etc., but the fact remains, we're dying to see it. I'd try searching your posts, but I wouldn't know which one of your 4 accounts to look at.



Both you guys are on this site all day, everyday. I've got zero interest in proving my research exists to either of you. You want to take the time to find it then fill ya boots. It should take you all of 30 seconds as it's been posted on this site several times already over the past few years.

I have a great paying job with a lot of freedom that allows me to spend as much time as I want on the internet. I use that time to talk about baseball and research stocks while doing my work.

You posted about this so-called 'research' multiple times. Obviously you have this handy and I cannot find it. Can you at least give me the title so I can find it? I am genuinely interested as I spend a lot of time evaluating young pitchers.

why don't you guys quit bashing NZ. There isn't even much to look at yet as far as lincecum goes, a young pitcher could blow up at any time IMO. Why don't we wait until the end of the season or at least till ASB to argue about who said who would improve or bust, because we have only a very small sample size at this point....oh, and Peace! B-)
