Uhh, Qualcomm was a pitcher's park too. Even if Petco IS a pitcher's park, it won't be as friendly as Qualcomm was.hybrid wrote:haven't you heard that you can't base everything on mere statistics? also it seems if you were a big peavy fan you would know why his K rate went down. his pitch counts were high as account of trying to strike out hitters, so in a move that he made that shows his progress as a pitcher that not only has great stuff but also thinks. he went ahead and didn't try to strike out every batter, he let them but the ball in play more to have better pitch counts. listen you just can't look at stats, if you do you will miss lots of things.
Ok, so let's pretend you're right and he stopped trying to K hitters. So tell me this- how come his walk rate increased? You'd think by letting the hitters put the ball into play more, he'd have better control, right? And yes, i've heard you can't base everything on statistics, but that's usually spouted by people like you who have no idea what stats to look at and what each stats means. Which is exactly what you proved in your post, you don't understand how to use stats.

How about a 22-year old kid having a 4.1 ERA 1.31 WHIP with an improved lineup this year???
How about a 3.02 ERA 58 K's in his final 65 2/3 innings??
Oh god no, that declining K rate....is scary!!! He only struck out 156 in 194.2 IP. I'm sure you were bashing Maddux at 22 also because his K rate was low. (249 IP, 140 K's)
