Looks like someone is slacking so I will do this for today + I have a fancy new chart to post.
And we just traded for Cantu (fuck).
Today's starters (from Mr. Lucas):
9:00 - Rookie: Shawn Blackwell
David Brown at BBTIA had a very nice post about Matt Thompson and comparing his season in A ball to other pitchers with similar k/9, bb/9 and GB%. I used the same pitchers but included K% and BB% (I like those two better than k/9 and bb/9)...
All those guys have a better k% than W. Thompson but W. Thompson has the lowest bb% of all the players on that chart. Cueto and Hughes have a significantly (I think 5% is significant, correct me if I am wrong) higher k%.
