When you look at Cindy Crawford, I bet all you see is the mole.
Pitches per PA:
I'm looking at the whole package. The bottom line is he has had 1, count it, 1 year of statistical improvement.
This year he has only lowered his ERA, and HR/9. He has gotten worse in everything else.
I don't mean to sound rude, but what in the world are you smoking?
But that 1 year of improvement is so significant that it's not even worth looking at his previous numbers in this thread. He is a completely different pitcher right now than he was pre 05.
That being said, how many 25 year old pitchers can you find that are producing at his level? I'd like to know.
Adrian Beltre sucked big time for several years, but had a monster 2004. We should just throw out all of his other years because they meant nothing right?
Yoda- You are one of my favorites here at the Cafe, but come on now...
Seriously now, Myers has proven so far this year that 05 was no fluke. A little bit different than Mr. Tru.
cords even came out and said he wasnt knocking on Myers. He did NOT improve from the years 02-04, he did improve last year (like cords said) and he has improved this year in ERA (like cords said). I am one of Brett Myers biggest supporters, but I couldnt help but notice how many of your misunderstood cordscords right there. I personally think he is on his way to another improvement this year in the important categories from a pitcher. His K rate will go up, and his BB rate has been going down since April (so has his K rate, but it will go back up).
Not once did cords ever knock on Myers or say he was a bad pitcher or even disagree that he will be a good pitcher this year and in the future, he just simply noticed that he has only had 1 full year of statistical improvement. Philliebuster said he has gotten better every year...I know Myers is young and all but he was wrong. Myers was pretty good for a rookie in 02, showed flashes in 03, and went downhill in 04, only to come back strong in 05, and he is continuing to improve this year (so far).
To sum up, you guys misunderstood cords post(s).
