33 K, 25 BB in 72 IP. Not impressed. The difference in his two halves was mostly luck on balls hit in play.
It's nice to see other people noticing these things. 33/25 K/BB is really bad. This is the same mirage Horacio Ramirez pulled at the start of the year.
I've had a long argument on why I think Horacio defies stats, I don't really want to go into it again. He's not a good fantasy pitcher, but effective in real life.
He'll have to defy not only stats, but the laws of physics to have an ERA below 4.50 in 2005.
Care to make a wager?
