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


he has the highest era/whip out of the bunch
4.746 1.348

Why would you want a guy with that high of an ERA/Whip on your fantasy team?

not that I would own Milton, but just curious


wv - i dont know the park effects all that well, but it was my understanding that the GAB is one of the top 3 best hitting parks in MLB - am I wrong, and where does CB ballpark rank? Is there enough of a sample size for CB park to rank it?


GAB was one of the best pitcher's parks last year. 3rd best for pitcher's, actually. In 2003 it was perfectly neutral. I don't know if they made changes to the park, but it drastically shot into extreme pitcher's park territory this sason. It'll be better than Citizen's Bank. which is very close to neutral, not a big hitters park as many think it is.

Yeah he has a long track record of having a bad WHIP, bad ERA, and he gives up way too many HR's. What's to like? 2002 wasn't so bad, it was borderlining on decent, but 2004 cleared any doubts that he was emerging as a good pitcher.

Zito, Mulder, Huson will all be drafted before the 10th round. Milton will be around late in the draft. Based on those numbers from 2004 are the big three over valued? Or are you guys beaten up on Milton too much?

Some others:

Milton 201.0 34 18 14 4.746 1.348 161 7.21
Morris 202.0 32 16 15 4.723 1.292 131 5.84
Vasquez 198.0 32 16 14 4.909 1.288 150 6.82
Bonderman 184.0 32 13 11 4.891 1.310 168 8.22
Mussina 164.7 27 12 12 4.591 1.324 132 7.21

If you all think he's so bad, I will snag him in rd's 25-30 and be happy

Well in round 25-30 he wouldn't be such a bad pick. But he's a horrible pitcher, and I have no idea why his market value is $9M per year! Are GM's clueless? Milton sucks, man what a waste. I'd rather have Tom Seaver or something. At least he knew how to pitch at one point in time.

He's been consistently.....bad.

At least the Reds are spending money ;-D

They should be taking chances on the Millwood's, Wade Miller's, Matt Morris's of the world instead of signing a consistently bad pitcher to a long term deal.

Makes Wright for 7M look like a bargain.

Of course it's Steinbrenner's fault that the Reds make jack#ss transactions like this and have no money to spend elsewhere.
