Carmona's struggling point is his 1.73 WHIP. I don't know how he managed to keep his ERA down so low. In his last 4 starts, he's given up 12 baserunners (4 BB), 13 (4 BB), 8, (1 BB, only outing of the year under 4 BB), and 10 (8 BB!!). For the year, his K:BB is 13:26. Either his ERA and wins will catch up to his lack of control, or he will snap out of it and get back to where he was last year. P.S. ranked 665 in Yahoo.[/quote]
...sinker...king of the double play ball...How does he get dropped at all? yea he's walking alot of people, but that will chance when he settles in. But if you aren't picking him up, you crazy.
back on topic. This SUCKS. I traded Jeff Francis/Matt Cain/Mark Reynolds to get Gallardo and AJ Burnett and open up a roster spot, right at the end of Reynolds' hot streak. I'm glad I was able to pull something for Reynolds. But I would love to have either Cain or Francis back! This kills my pitching staff. I went with a lot of lower tier pitching and loaded up my offense in the draft/trades.
