For those who are waving the "John Koronka sucks" banner...
Koronka now has a 5.31 ERA on the year. It was just under 5.00 before tonight's game.
The 5.31 would be equivalent to an ERA+ of about 84 or so.
For the season, coming into tonight's game, he had a VORP of 16.7. That's probably a few points lower now...but before tonight, that was 4th on the Ranger pitching staff, behind only Millwood, Padilla and Otsuka.
Now, that isn't great.
But it isn't awful, either.
For a 5th starter making the league minimum, I can live with that.
I think Rangers fans saying that Koronka is terrible, that his performance this year has been completely unacceptable, are not being realistic.
