not that I would own Milton, but just curious

I'm wondering the same thing looking at this (don't know how accurate it is) GAB looks to be a pitchers park. :-?


thats a 1 yr sample size and is an indication of talent on the field more than a historical average.

Makes sense, do you have a better place to look at park factors?

the absolutely worse signing of the offseason ...milton for 8.5 mil a year for 3 years......and to top it off he, not the team, has a out after 2006,,,(like he will really use it though)......

Oh man, pick up NL central hitters now! Imagine, somewhere around 6 games facing Eric Milton!

The first year GAB was neutral and last year it favored pitchers.

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

I am thrilled to hear this ;-D I was afraid that the Yankees would end up with this worthless over-payed bum.

It's sad to say this....but....Milton will actually help the Reds. Cincy is in such pathetic shape pitching-wise that he'll be an adequate starter to eat some innings and give the pathetic bullpen some rest.

Granted, the guy sucks...but what's that say about Cincy's pitching? !+)

Edit: but yeah, that contract was ridiculously bad IMO. It's a sad day for Reds fans. Why not spend pretty much the same amount of money on Clement? Sometimes I just don't understand GMs.

Why do the Reds keep doing deals like this? It just doesn't make sense to get a mediocre pitcher for that much money. Maybe it's because no one good wants to pitch in that launching pad.

Oh well, I wouldn't have drafted him no matter who he signed with.

Why all the hate'n on this guy :-o

................IP/ST/QS/W/ERA/WHIP/K'S/KD9
MILTON 201.0 34 18 14 4.746 1.348 161 7.21
HARDEN 189.7 31 18 11 3.986 1.329 167 7.92
MULDER 225.7 33 18 17 4.427 1.356 140 5.58
WILLIS 197.0 32 18 10 4.020 1.376 139 6.35
BENSON 200.3 31 17 12 4.313 1.313 134 6.02
ZITO 213.0 34 16 11 4.479 1.394 163 6.89
HUDSON 188.7 27 15 12 3.530 1.262 103 4.91

He had as many or more quality starts than this group. More wins than all but Mulder and Hudson whose numbers were comparable. Struck out more than all these but Harden.

Am I missing something :-?

Harden and Willis are highly prized young pitchers. The big three will go for much higher in money and in drafts. Benson is probably spoken of more in the same terms.

I just don't understand why so many are saying he's the worst pitcher :-?
