The majority of that WHIP is coming from the hits and a lot of those are ground balls through the infield.

He's gonna have some games this year where he isn't able to wiggle out of the trouble he has, but it should be sustainable for him to have a pretty strong year assuming he doesn't tire.


His LOB% is 14% higher than his career average (83.3% to 69.6%) That's really unsustainable. The regression, I mostly meant for his ERA. His BABip is near his career average. Just something to monitor.

He still a hell of a 3rd starter.

Never said he wasn't. He's also 4-0 after an Indians loss. Just saying, people are going to start to get expectations and then get all pissy when they aren't met.

Edit: I was also one of the few on record as really liking the move when it was made.

Let's hear it for Fenway Park: the most overrated softball field in America.

Seriously, I hate that stadium. I could lean into a lob wedge and hit it over that right field fence.

Expect serious regression sometime soon if his WHIP doesn't start going down.


Until that happens, I sure am enjoying the shit out of the Derek Lowe era.

Edit: I'm not really enjoying the Tony Sipp era all that much.

Little bit, but I was secretly hoping to see Hagadone in a big spot. Had a base been open, I'd have been more open to the idea of Hagadone v. Ortiz with them loaded.

Little bit, but I was secretly hoping to see Hagadone in a big spot. Had a base been open, I'd have been more open to the idea of Hagadone v. Ortiz with them loaded.

Is coming in for the 9th at Fenway big enough? I'm enjoying this one...so far!

Curious to see if Hagadone throws at somebody in the 9th. You know we're hitting somebody at some point.

I really hope not. He's too valuable to lose over these punk-butted Red Sux.

Wasn't Ortiz over the hill a few years ago?

That's a solid win. Kick these assholes while they're down. Win 2 of the next 3.

Hopeful for us to take tomorrow. If Ubaldo can dodge out of trouble as well as he did his last start we should be fine. Buchholz has been pure garbage for Bahstun this year. HaHaHaHaHa!

Moron, you won 2 fucking titles in the last decade.....

AND the Red Sux kicked him out of the park! Yup, embarrass them more than they are embarrassing themselves and they penalize the person. Or maybe they threw him out because he was being an ass...
