    [QUOTE]In Response to Re: Robertson best Set Up Man in the AL : Come on, Steven, a thread started by Babe titled "[Insert Yankee Name Here] is the best [insert position here] in the AL".  This is an invitation for talking trash if there ever was one. You may be right about Bard's fastball being straight, but since his breaking ball is the speed of most fast-balls, it doesn't really matter.  If you're expecting a 90 MPH pitch to break, how do you adjust to a 99 MPH pitch that's straight? For the record, the best WHIP of Nolan Ryan's career was 1.006.  Bard's is 0.8!

    You have a point there; however, Ryan's WHIP tells you that WHIP, although telling, isn't everything. And SP WHIP is not the same as RP WHIP, for starters (NPI).

    Bard was a mixed bag last yr; where've you been?

    Last year Bard had an ERA of 1.93 in 73 games.  In 74.2 IP he gave up 45 hits for a .173 BAve against, and a WHIP of 1.00, while striking out 76.

    Your post is truly one of the stupidest statements made this season here, and that is saying a lot, with softy (and all his aliases), The Babe, and Smiley all included.

    When you're a NYY fan a 1.73 ERA although impressive for one or two or even three years doesn't impress us much, we're spoiled as you know......Sorry.

    Yes, Pike, I am a Yankees troll on the side. I waste valuable time switching from this account to The Babe's account solely for the purpose of annoying you.

    Once the Yankees face the Red Sox again, Robertson's ERA will go over 3.00.  lol

    I guess I was wrong. As far as it being one of the stupidest statements goes however, considering what's posted here, that's debatable. I do recall posters and the media complaining about him last yr, and that's what I was basing it on, without checking the stats first, and my bad; I guess stupid goes as stupid does.

    Fair enough, nhsteven.  I overstated the issue as well.  my excuse was 3 glasses of sangria, topped with an amaretta cordial.

    [QUOTE]BABE once again you are delusional. Robertson is good, really good....and I would even concede he may be as good as Bard, but your argument can't for him being better can't really go beyond the fact that you are a Yankee fan.   After opening day Bard has a 1.16 ERA pretty identical to Robertsons 1.17, his WHIP is about .40 points lower at .80 compared to Robertsons 1.25 Bard has a BB/9 of 3.4/9 as opposed to 4.9/9 for Robertson, he has a HR/9 of ZERO as opposed to .6 (Robertson has given up 3)  So Bard has better control and does NOT give up the long ball.  Batters are hitting .161 off of Bard as opposed to .179 off of Robertson.  Bard also has 3 more holds and one less blown save. And more importantly ROBERTSON has let 26.6% of inherited runners score while Bard has only let 13% that's HALF compared to Robertson....HALF So while I think RObertson is really good, after his ability strike people out he really has NOTHING on Bard.  Sorry babe, you know we all love you here....but Bards better.

    Nice selective stat.  They all count.  The stat that really counts for setup man:  Bard 5 BS/L, Roberston 3.

    Both are real good lately and any GM would take either if offered.

    I'll take the guy the Yankees already have.
