What is a pitcher worth when they put up this stat line, on a team that isn't very good either.

9-14 166 4.82 1.38

$6 seems high to me especially when there is no money left and a ton of pitching still available. ( this is the key to me, since I think he does bounce back a bit)

Didn't realize we were using last years numbers :^

Tell me what is a pitcher worth when he has shown the ability and still has the tools to put up a line of 14/185/3.6/1.25 :-?

Seems to me that $6 is cheap for a 29 year-old guy who is two years away from ace status and who crashed like a lot of Red Sox in the Bobby Valentine disaster of last year. If he gets me just what Bill James is forecasting it'll be $6 well spent i.e. see my tag line below.

Wasn't questioning the price, was questioning the "still has the tools" part. Question still to be answered. Even Bill James is wrong sometimes.

I hear you. I'm not convinced Jon Lester is a sure bet either. Bill James also tends to be a little too optimistic in his forecasts. I'm just comfortable throwing away $6 given what he (is / might be) still capable of.

It for sure wasn't the worst $6 spent so far.
