Who is this kid? NASTY numbers. ANy Rockie fans seen him?

Postby johnsamo » Mon May 15, 2006 4:19 pm

Ramon Ramirez, rookie RP for the rockies.....

15.1 innnings pitched
20 Ks...
2 walks....
0.00 ERA
0.52 WHIP

That is just lights out wicked #s... better than a k per inning, and a 10 to 1 K/BB ratio

How come nobodies talking about this kid?

Cause he plays for the Rockies??

Seriously though, he was picked up in my two big leagues for ratio and K help. I don't really know much about him other than I don't have room for him.
Basically I'm complicated.
I have a hard time taking the easy way
I wouldn't call it schizophrenia
But Ill be at least two people today

If that's OK

And I can go on, and on, and on...

But who cares?

He was traded from the Yanks to the Rockies in the Chacon trade. He's known as a thrower with a good arm, but control is pretty bad and he still needs to learn how to pitch. I'm sure he'll get roughed up once batters have a few looks at him.

This ratio is meaningless. Use K9 and BB9.

Just how is K/BB meaningless?

Are you saying it is in general, or just in this situation with such a small sample size?

He probably means it's meaningless in this situation because of how small the sample size is.

10:1 is meaningless. 20/2 K/BB is very meaningful but taking a ratio is not helpful.

Maybe a K/BB ratio isn't standard baseballeze... But when I see a guy throwing 10 Ks for every walk, it makes me wonder if we've got the next mariano Rivera flying under the radar here?.. Granted, we're dealing with a small sample, only 15.1 innings, but the numbers are off the charts. 20 Ks in only 15.1 innings with just 2 walks and 6 hits, that's just dominating kind of #s.

He has been a VERY pleasant surprise. He was brought up for what would have been only a week or so when DeJean went down, but he's pitched his way into a long term commitment (I see no way he goes down now, and perhaps this whole season). He throws a nice slider, a fastball that he changes speeds with at will, and he throws another breaking pitch, believe its a change up.

I think the reason he isn't being talked about is he's just a middle reliever. Not even a set up man. He was originally a starter, and someday he may revert back to that role. But for now, he's a solid middle reliever. Fantasy wise, he's a decent pickup in deeper leagues with lots of pitching spots.
