What's going on with Harang?

Postby krunchyfrogg » Fri May 30, 2008 8:03 am

This guy is absolutely killing me!

He started off the year with some tough luck losses, but pitched well. Recently, he's been stinking up the place!
Looking forward to back to back championships in 2011!

4 innings (9k and no runs allowed) of relief three days before his start might've had something to do with it.

he was on my bench then, and of course, he was active for this wretchedness. he's still a badass. watch his next start for confirmation.

yeah, yes...

Nothing is wrong with Harang. His numbers are about what you should expect.

2006: 3.76 ERA, 1.27 WHIP, .269 BAA, 8.30 K/9IP
2007: 3.73 ERA, 1.14 WHIP, .242 BAA, 8.47 K/9IP
2008: 3.81 ERA, 1.26 WHIP, .269 BAA, 8.06 K/9IP

He did throw 4 scoreless innings with 9 Ks less then a week ago in relief is "is absolutely killing me!"? Seriously?

Gotta love it when people overreact without doing any kind of research whatsoever.

Wish the Harang owner felt the same as you after last nights game. Never saw a 12:30am trade offer rejected so quickly :~(

Everything is going to be just fine. I'd be happy to trade for him in any league I'm in right now.
If you found my advice helpful, please help me

Kiss my rear. The dude is supposed to be my "ace" and has a 2-7 record.

If he was your ace than you should score some runs for him. He is currently getting the 2nd least amount of run support in the majors right now. I doubt you drafted him for the wins, considering he plays for CIN.

Means absolutely nothing. That blog was a very weak analysis. The only thing that "club" suggests is that sometime in the next five years after throwing 3500 pitches, a pitcher will have a season not quite as good as his best season. BFD

I don't get it then... So you drafted him looking for the record, but totally ignoring the skill stats, which are pretty much right in line with what Harang has done in recent history? That makes about zero sense to me...considering a guy's record is dependent upon not only his skill but his offensive support, and a guy's ERA/K/WHIP are dependent on only them...
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?
