I'll take my insight 100% of the time over the guy who values pitchers by W-L.

Correct me if I'm wrong but you were all over the nuts of guys like Casey Janssen and Jim Johnson because of save numbers too, right?

Yeah...I'll make about any bet you want.

STOCK: Wrong, I don't value starting pitchers over W-L. You are exaggerating that. What I said and have always said, and will still always say is that I value W's in the PLAYOFFS, as well as a CAREER TOTAL. Season to season is nothing. JA Happ won a shit load of games last year but he's not really a good pitcher. He got run support and some luck with decent skill. But to do it every year for many many years in your career, and say rack up 200+ W's. That's impressive not matter how you look at it. It's usually over 10 to 20 seasons on many teams. Playoff W's is what I dwell on though, and rightfully so. No need for an Andy Pettitte argument here again, but you get the point.

WHIP is all fine and dandy, but really what does a stat like that really mean? It doesn't tell the whole story. Andy Pettitte (for example) could give up an infield single, walk the next batter, get a sac bunt out, intentional walk next guy, and strike out the next 2 batters to get out of it, but his WHIP would be 3.00. So not a good stat.

Anyway, not interesting arguing it, and yeah Casey Janssen and Jim Johnson had very good careers and are still kicking. When they were on they were on. Underrated closers and guys who got it done, and didn't get the accolades others did. Not sure why it was wrong to give props to those guys?

LOL ok, bet is on, we'll figure out the terms and thresholds, lord knows we have time, thanks to the Rays grand master plan.

Ah, Casey Janssen. There's a name from the not too distant past. Funny enough, he just signed with a team in Mexico last week.

Yeah he didn't get a spring training invite, surprised at that, but he wasn't really effective last season, but still wants to pitch.

I remember when Casey busted into the league, and in back2back starts against his hometown Angels he made it to the 8th with 1-hitters on the go, his 3rd and 4th career starts.

Lots of hype after those 2 games, only to get lit up the rest of the year and that was the end of his career as a starter.

His wife looks like a stripper.

I remember all the ladies were heartbroken when their boy got traded. Now they've attached themselves to Donaldson. But at least he's good.

Jays are among 4 teams interested in Brett Lawrie.

Jays are also interested in free agent OF Angel Pagan. He'd be a better option than Strikeout Upton.

And in other news, the Yankees are killing it so far in Spring Training with a 9-2 record to lead the majors. Get used to that north of .800 WIN %!!

You know it's a sad state of times for Yankees fans when they're excited about a Spring Training record.

Nah.

Latching onto the flavor of the month seems right up the alley of most Yankee/Cub/Red Sox fans.

With Huards logic, Jose should win the MVP.

16 AB, 2 HR, 6 RBI, .553 AVG, .611 OBP
