Ricky Nolasco

Postby RenPastana » Wed Apr 22, 2009 2:34 pm

This guy has been frustrating so far this year...I understand it's still early but he's had 2 starts vs a minor league team (Washington Nats), with terrible numbers...He struggled against the Mets but they actually have a potent offense so I will let that one slide, and finally, he's given up 6 runs, 5 earned to the PIRATES so far!

I feel like a lot of people had high expectations for this guy this season but if he can't put up quality starts against 2 of the weakest offenses in baseball, then what of him?

Does anybody see my point? I wasn't relying on him to be my ace but a strong #2 or #3 is what I was looking for. Anyone got insight on Ricky?

I'm wondering the same thing. I traded a hefty price to get him, based on last year and his ridiculous spring. Maybe he's a hot weather pitcher?
Thank you to soty for hooking me up with another awesome sig!

You certainly sounded like you were panicking. Your tone and use of punctuation suggested panicking.

Just how is pointing out that he sucked last year in April too a waste of your time? Are you too stupid to consider that players often exhibit patterns? The point, which obviously went way over your limited mental capacity head, is that maybe he just isn't very good at the beginning of the season. He wasn't last year, he hasn't been this year, maybe it's not a coincidence. Do you understand now or do I need to resort to baby talk?

You give someone info maybe they didn't know and they bite your head off. Good luck getting help in the future MOD EDIT.

He has 33 percent line drive percentage. That's pretty much unsustainable no matter who he faces. The line drives should start to decline and he should normalize. Maybe it's the weather that gets to him, but I doubt it since he plays in warm Florida anyways.
