Wrong players winning spring races (rant thread)

Postby AussieDodger » Fri Mar 29, 2013 10:47 pm

I'll start.

Detroit picking Porcello over Smyly? Really Tigers?

I realize Porcello is only 24, but he's had three seasons of suckful ERA/WHIPs: 4.92/1.39, 4.75/1.41, 4.59/1.53.
Last year he was horrendous (by my measuring), 5.46 K/9 (vomit), 3.62 XBH/9 (163rd!!!), 2.25 BB/9 (surprisingly elite)
It doesn't matter if you have good BB/9, when people are smashing doubles off you at will and you can't strike them out.

Now I'm not saying that Smyly is Kershaw, but his rookie season was excellent in patches. Taking on NYY and TEX back to back and dominating them is a real green light for me.

Seems like Detroit are going with the "name", and ignoring a superior player. My guess is Porcello will not be a starter (or possibly a Tiger) June 1.

Now that I've got that off my chest :-b , which head-to head race are you upset about?

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

That Kent would pick on the WR as opposed to GF as the biggest homer on the boards.
