    Why can,t Doubront be a #3, or even a #2 nxt yr? History say,s he can....

    Felix Doubront has quitely put together a nice rookie season. Lets take a look at where he stands compared to other homegrown lefty,s that the sox have had over the yrs. I,m basing it on age, innings pitched as well as stats. here goes....

     Jon Lester   pitched 150 inn over his first 2 seasons, with ok results.( 4.60 era, 1.60 whip ) before pitching 210 innings the nxt yr while going 16-6, 3.21 era and a 1.27 whip. He establised himself as one of the top lefty,s in the league from that point on..

     Bruce Hurst   tallied 170 inn over his first 2 seasons with not so good results ( 5.50 era, 1.65 whip ) before becoming a full time starter ang posting a 12-12 mark, 4.09 era, and a 1.43 whip.

     John Tudor   pitched roughly 200 inn over his first 3 seasons with mixed results ( 28 Ip 6.43 era 1.71 whip - 92 Ip 3.02 era 121 whip - 78 Ip 4.58 era 1.30 whip ) before logging 195 inn in 82 posting a 13-10 mark, 3.63 era, and a 1.40 whip. also keep in mind that Tudor was 28 yrs old when he finally tallied over 150 inn in a season.

     Bobby Ojeda  pitched roughly 170 inn over his first 3 seasons with also mixed results (26 inn, 6.92 era, 2.03 whip - 66 inn 3.12 era, 1.13 whip - 78 inn , 5.63 era, 1.58 whip ) before becoming a full time starter and logging 173 inn in 83. he went 12-7, 4.04 era and a 1.41 whip

     

      Doubront right now has pitched in his career 189 inn, with a 4.90 era, and a 1.49 whip. He,s 24 yrs old, roughly the same age as Lester, Ojeda and hurst when they became starters and ptched past 150 inn in a season ( Tudor did it at 28 yrs ) Doubront has pitched past 150 innings in his 2nd season, the rest of them did it in their 3rd, 4th, or 5th season. His pure STUFF at this point of his career is arguebly the best of the group (yes...including Lesters ) and once he learns to pitch to contact with his change up and curveball he has the ability to not only be a 3, but a 1 or 2 in a rotation. His stuff is THAT GOOD. I laugh at people who say he,s traide bait, or...at best a 5th starter. Mike Easler was a nice dh, but give me John Tudors career any day. How about Bobby Ojeda for Calvin Schiraldi ? would you do that one again...lol. The point is, if history is any indicator, Doubront,s best yrs are ahead, and they could be really, really good..

    Right now he is a bottom of the rotation pitcher.  Doubront probably do not care about that.  Right now his goal is to become a better pitcher next year than this year.  

    Boston better not trade him.  Dont even try to use him for a trade bait to get either Garza or Shield.
