The guy has 11 friken wins!! The way i look at is in 8 games his ERA is 3 something or under which is great and puts your team in a spot to win. That right there eliminates the replacement pitcher name.
All in all he is more deserving the TOm Gordon, Jason Giambi, and a few others
Well I'm oviously not debating Giambi as worthy to go, but the league's avg. ERA is 4.44 and Milton's is now 4.72. The league's avg. whip is 1.41 while his is 1.53 before tonight. What it means is you could easily replace him with a different pitcher around the league and with that run support, that same pitcher would have the same 11 frikin wins that you mention. With those stats how could he not be replacable? A replacement level player isn't really an all-star. It means the Phillies could easily find another Eric Milton and for less money.
