Brandon Webb; Predictions

Postby acsguitar » Fri Dec 31, 2004 10:39 pm

I think Brandon gets back on track and steps out of Randys shadows...his offense should be better and a 3rd year in the bigs should help


15-10
3.20 ERA
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Good K's and he has a nice breaking pitch to get groundballs. But his offense isnt that good and pitching in th BOB is as bad as Minute Maid or Arlington

I say like 12-13 wins, 175 K's and like 3.50 ish ERA

I thought this was discussed before? :-? Anyway, I think his ratios will be as solid as '03, but with an ERA somwhere in the 3.40 neighborhood. The only thing that will really hurt him is the win total -- or lack thereof.

I agree

Although, I'm assuming win total will be higher than last year simply because the shoudl actually score more than 50 runs for the season next year.

the problem with webb last year was the 119 walks and 1.5+ WHIP.....if he can improve his control even somewhat, his numbers should see a nice improvement.

I don't have numbers to back this up, but it seems to me that even two years ago, his walk total was realtively high, inflating the WHIP. But that was offset by his K ability and sinker.

I'm not sold on how much improved the D-Backs will be this year. Glaus, Gonzo for the whole year will sure help, but Clayton at
SS :-o

I am projecting him for 10 wins, 165 Ks, 3.30 ERA, 1.35 WHIP

I think those numbers are close to what we can expect. ;-D

Wow, these are pretty high-end projections for Webb. I have little confidence in his ability to hit the plate. Way too many free passes handed out last season, I don't see him correcting the problem enough this season to warrant a favorable projection. I think he will have more wins, because of the improved Arizona offense, but I think his ERA will rise. I don't know how he managed to keep his ERA so low while letting so many guys reach base in 04.


9-12 Wins, 4.21 ERA, 1.47 WHIP, 160K
We are what we repeatedly do. Excellence then, is not an act, but a habit.
