Who will be 2010 version of Tommy Hanson?

Postby footballisbetter.com » Sat Mar 06, 2010 9:28 am

I was lucky to get Hanson last season for $1 in both of my auction keeper leagues. Does anyone looked poised to have a breakout season similar this year? Doesn't have to be a pitcher either. Thanks.

I think Jeremy Hellickson has a profile going into 2010 that's a lot like Hanson's going into 2009.

Who would he replace in the rotation? Price? Davis?

heres report from spring training on Hellickson

Twenty-three pitches. One and one-third innings. One hit, a triple by a backup catcher named Francisco Cervelli. Two strikeouts, a couple of guys named Derek Jeter (who flailed at a nasty curve) and Mark Teixeira (on a gutsy full-count changeup).

"Liked it," Maddon said.

"Very impressive," Rays pitching coach Jim Hickey said.

Don't think it's necessary to calculate who exactly it would be.

Don't think it's necessary to calculate who exactly it would be.

On a scale of 0 to 1, what are the chances that all five Tampa starters stay healthy the entire season?

OK, now multiply it by this...

On a scale of 0 to 1, what are the chances that Tampa will want to give its young arms 200 innings each?

Multiply by 100 and that's the percentage chance that Tampa will not need a replacement starter at some point during the season.

My estimate? .3 x .3 x .3 x 100 = 2.7 percent

Take that answer and cut it in half then double it :-?

2.7 percent chance that 1 out of every 100 people understand this.

Seems simple enough.

Prospect of injury, ineffectiveness, or discretion due to youth will open up a slot in the rotation. Sure, could have been said in fewer words, but had he just said, there's a 97% shot that Hellickson will get a shot, you probably would think he was pulling the number of thin air.

I think he's pulling the number out of thin air either way.
