Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

He improved across the board every single year for the last three seasons: ERA, WHIP, BB/9, HR/9, etc. How is that a fluke?! If it was any other player who showed such steady improvement and finally had a break-out season, fantasy owners would be falling all over themselves to draft him.


I noticed that you left out K/9 which was actually down. And at 5.63 per 9 innings it is less than fantastic, and has actually been declining for the past 3 seasons.

Also, the gradual improvement he initially showed was attributed to the great pitchers park he was starting half his games in after moving from Montreal. Last season the improvement was significantly up on the previous two seasons. Sure he was finally healthy all season but he was in 2003 as well. No way he ever goes close to those 2004 numbers again in his career.

2004 = fluke season

LMAO!

Drew, above all the others mentioned, strikes me as the best candidate.

jaret wright. i guess he belongs to the same category as JD. if he can stay healthy he could produce. hmmm, i actually think JD can put up better numbers than jaret if healthy.

does anybody actually think wright will pitch well for now on? he's 30 years old and this was his first decent season since 98.

I don't think Pavano will be as good next year (this year?), but his ERA+ has improved 3 years in a row, so he might just be getting better. I think he will be decent, but not worth his salary.
