Hudson and K's

Last year the K's went way down but so did the walks and the result was an even better whip and era.


Checking the numbers, this is just not true. He struck out 152 in 2002, 162 last year. He walked 62 in 2002, 61 last year.

That's just me being anal.

I like Hudson, despite the fewer K's. He's on pace now for around 115 strikeouts, 40 walks. The fewer walks has definitely helped him. He's also on pace to allow fewer home runs than any full season he's pitched so far. It's possible he's making a conscious decision to be more economical with his pitches, so he can stay in games longer, maybe because the A's bullpen isn't as good as it's been the last few years. He's averaging more innings pitched per start than in any other year, but with about the same number of pitches per start.
Roger Angell: I was talking with Bob Gibson and I said: 'Are you always this competitive?' He said: 'Oh, I think so. I got a three-year old daughter, and I've played about 500 games of tic-tac-toe with her and she hasn't beat me yet.'

yeah its jus what comes with hudson - not alot of K's and not alot of wins. He is an extreme groundball pitcher, and the A's sometimes jus cant wake their bats up. None the less he is the kinda guy you can hang your hat on all season.
