In response to soxnewmex's comment:
I know, hoping somehow to get solid seasons from Lackey and Dempster, have serious doubts about Doubront.
What is wrong with Demps and Lackey.
Excluding last nights issues with the catwalk Lackey had a 2.38 ERA and with run support should have 6 wins. Since up to yesterday he had only given up 3 runs twice and all the rest were less.
Demps has a 3.78 ERA has given up 4 and 6 runs in 2 games the rest have been 3 (once) or less in his 8 games
So we have had solid years so far for our back of the rotation guys.
What team has better? Rays NO, O's NO, Jays NO NYY NO
Before you make comments get the facts straight
The facts are as follows: Lester & Buchhholz are 12-0. The rest of the staff is 11-17. 'Nuf said!
W-L??? really? Demps record could realistically have 3 more wins if he got run support. Your going to have to do better than W-L bosox. Thats a team stat. King Felix won the Cy Young with a 13-12 record...He had a sub 3 era though. No run support that year. He easily could have won 20.
The problem we have has been with Doubront, whos 3-1 with a 6.78ERA. Hes had run support and his record doesnt tell the whole truth, Like Dempsters. Lackey has been just OK IMO, but is still getting his legs under him.
After last night, heres what weve had.
W-L 14-4 25 starts, just under a 3 ERA 166.1 IP (7IP avg) 121H 49ER 171K 1.05 WHIP batter have a .200BA against them. ( record could easily be 15-2 with some runs support in 2 Demp starts)
W-L 4-5 5.20 ERA 11 starts 59IP ( just under 5.1 IP per start) 74H 35ER 62K 1.62 WHIP batters hitting .300 against them, (Doubront could easily be 1-3 if not for good run support and Lack could have another win due to lack of run support)
Our 1-3 pitchers are doing great. lackey has had some bad luck and has pitched like a #5 so far. Doubie has been a mess even though he has 3 wins to show for it. Its not so much our pitching as it is our lack of timely hitting as of late.
