ERA title also requires 162 IP just like in real life, just in case Pedro pitches a gem against the Expos and then blows out his shoulder in April. I don't want loopholes here :-D


I'll take that bet. Do you want to use ERA or ERA+?

Also, if either pitcher blows out his arm before the 162 limit, the bet should be void. The injury's not our fault.


ERA would be fine. What's ERA+? Maybe I know what it is but just don't know the term. I assume the concept is obviously different than OPS+.

ERA+ = Adjusted ERA

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Sure ERA+ it is then. That'll make up for the difference between Shea and Miller Park. Being such a deterrent to HR (Pedro's big problem last year) I'm sure the .804 HR index will help him a lot.

What do you want the stakes to be? It can't be a Pedro or Sheets avatar, because I like Sheets and you don't dislike Pedro.

Anything you can think of?

If DK wins Jackal has to sport the U.S.A. flag as his avatar, and vice versa. :-]

Sorry, I have dual citizenship with the US and Canada. Nice try, though. :D

NY Daily New:
While maintaining a sentimentality for the fans and city of Boston, Martinez took shots at GM Theo Epstein's staff (calling them "computer geeks"), the Red Sox organization and fellow ace Curt Schilling...


Funny stuff.
