    Why did you not arrange those pitchers by ERA? You can try to hide his near-five ERA all you like, but the fact is that Wastefield is the least deserving starting pitcher on that list.

    Because I believe Moony is a WHIP/OBP guy, it wasn't intentional. The only point regarding Wakefield that I agree with you on is the homerun service; otherwise, I don't understand your vendetta against him.

    It' sounds like you & Babe going to the wire for the Ban award; that was a deodorant yrs ago and now serves a double but similar purpose.

    This could result in excessive taxation, which means he's have to investigate local tax corruption in his own neighborhood.

    This conflict of interest may allow one of his whipping boys some free reign.
    Perhaps Jake, once he's an all-star.

    Marquis Grissom was an All-Star, but he desserved it as he was a far superior player. If Ellsbury is an All-Star, he's a Wakefield All-Star. Juan Pierre deserved to be an All-Star more than Ellsbury. 

    I thought Ellsbury was sensational, tonight.

    Why did you not arrange those pitchers by ERA? You can try to hide his near-five ERA all you like, but the fact is that Wastefield is the least deserving starting pitcher on that list.

    I have always valued WHIP more than ERA and long before Wake began having low WHIP seasons (2008). I wasn't the first to use WHIP to judge Wake by; ironically, it was the stat softy chose to bash him a while ago, before he bothered to look at the numbers.

    It appears that "bettersofthanlaw" has the same blindspot softy has: he doesn't bother to look at the numbers before he spews misinformation. Look at the starting ERAs of all our starters and Wake is still top 5...

    1) Beckett    2.20
    2) Miller         3.09 (small sample size)
    3) Buchholtz  3.48
    4) Lester        3.66
    5) Wakefield  4.50
    6) Dice-K        4.95 (not an option anymore)
    7) Aceves       5.14
    8) Lackey        6.81

    How about looking at opponents OPS against (as starter):
    1) Beckett  .518
    2) Dice-K    .646
    3) Wake     .702
    4) Buch      .706
    5) Aceves  .713
    6) Miller      .731
    7) Lester    .734
    8) Lackey   .843 (before tonight)

    Overall numbers (OPS against with 50+ PAs)
    1) Beck    .518
    2) Bard     .534
    3) Albers .605
    4) Paps   .656
    5) Dice    .664
    6) Acev  .678
    7) Buch  .706
    8) Wake  .725 (counting relief)
    9) Miller  .731 (53 PAs)
    10) Lest  .734
    11) Atch  .804
    12) Whee .806
    13) Lack   .843 (Before tonight)
    14) Jenks .853

    "...he's a Wakefield All-Star..."

    That's a compliment.

    Wake was 10-3 on June 27th, 2009. The team was 11-3 in his starts (4.18 ERA). Only Beckett had slightly better numbers as a starter.

    By July 8th, he was 11-3 (4.31).

    Burrito used Nazi's on his thread. Notice how both Burrito and Softlaw (now known as bettersoftthanlaw) cling to this subject matter.

    Pathetic fact; 9 wins away from when this thread started; 9 pages of who knows what content (including me); and he's still 9 wins away; and given the speed these pages of gobbledygook were generated, Koufax would probably still be 9 wins away

    No, that's not a compliment.

    Yes, Harness, Burrito and I are living in South America and working for the SS. One of our first projects was to capture Che, who was never killed, and had a pair of floppy ear transplants with other plastic surgery and escaped to Chicago and ran for Senate. We are closing in on him though, with our fellow corpsemen.

    I'm not buying it. Che is dead; movies never lie. That goes for Carlos the jackal too, although in his case it's only a life sentence. (Speaking of movies) And all this time I thought you were responsible for the remastering of Triumph of the Will. Leave it to the SS to keep mixing up roles, take advantage of South American countries, and infiltrate the Chicago mob and political machine all in one fell swoop..

    You can hear what I think? What am I thinking now?
    Better block UR ears.
    What you read, which is admittedly skimming in many cases, what you comprehend from this skimming, and what you post are all on completely different planes.

    Kinda like the plane you took a few years back...that ended up landing in Cambodia.

    Actually it ended up in Singapore (after a month in Argentina) at which time I marked out a trip to Laos, Thailand, Cambodia, Vietnam, and Mongolia.  

    Next trip is marked for 2012 (September I think) to Turkey, Greece, and perhaps Bulgaria.  

    Now if you could only get your passport stamped every time you left your state you might catch up in ten years bozo.
