Allright, more name calling. Good stuff.
Well if you've watched them both this year, I don't see how you can say they aren't at least close.
As far as "career numbers", you conveniently left out the fact the Peavy has pitched for a fairly good team, in a great pitchers part and in a weak division....while Young has pitched for a crappy team, in a crappy pitchers park and against the DH. Funny how those items slipped your mind.
- Code: Select all
Peavy ERA G IP H9 HR9 BB9 K9 WHIP
Major League Totals - 3.51 138 864.0 8.06 1.02 2.92 8.85 1.22
Young ERA G IP H9 HR9 BB9 K9 WHIP
Major League Totals - 3.93 69 380.1 7.86 1.28 2.93 7.76 1.20
Funny...they don't look that much the same to me?
They don't?....Really?.....Maybe take another look.
Thanks for helping prove my point with those stats you posted. Except for games and innings pitched they are pretty much the same. Young actually has less hits per 9 IP and their WHIP is IDENTICAL. All that while pitching against the DH and in a hitters park. I'm not into the name calling thing, but I do believe you're the nut if you look at the numbers YOU posted, and still say they aren't close.
Since Young has been pitching with the Padres, he's a total of 20 - 8 with a mid 2 era. (That "IS PEAVY" right there). In fact, over that same 2 year span, Peavy is 20-19 with a mid 3 era.
So go on calling names and using half of the available information to make your point sound better. Good stuff guy.
