Nolasco is aiming to walk 25 batters or less this season, the South Florida Sun-Sentinel reports.
Recommendation: "Obviously, I want to be as low as possible, but walks are going to happen," he said. "It's part of the game, part of being a pitcher. My goal is no more than 25 walks. I want to throw over 200 innings. I think 25 is a good number to be at." Only six pitchers have accomplished that feat since 1980, and even Greg Maddux managed to do it just twice...
I know its just talk, but the man is on the record. I like a little Hubris from my starters, anyway
In 2008 he gave out 42 walks in 212 innings. His control has always been good, but this is rarified air indeed. I think if anyone does it this year it will be Doc. I think Nolasco bottoms out around 40 again. Do you think he has a chance?
