It is logical to assume that young players will improve as they get older.Originally Posted by kudzu
We stand at 35-26 right now with 20 games left before the midpoint. I'm shooting for a 15-5 run that'll put us at 50 wins. You gotta shoot for the stars and see where you land. Besides, there's enough negativity out there already. We don't need any more.
It's amazing watching a Troll argue against the Orioles, even though he's been proven wrong all season long.
"ahead of schedule" That was kind of funny. For once though it is a pleasure to not be thinking about the Ravens in June

I'd say Wieters has gotten better, along with Matusz, and even Chris Davis has shown improvement. Of course, Hammel has improved but he isn't young I think it's just a matter of getting out of Coors field. Chen has been solid as well.Originally Posted by kudzu
Wieters this year: .250 .333 .441
Matusz last year: ok, that's not even fair.
So we'll go with:
Matusz in 2011: 4.30 ERA 1.34 WHIP
Matusz this year: 4.82 ERA 1.55 WHIP
That ain't "getting better".
Hammel, Davis and Chen have been good acquisitions, so far.
A strong case can be made that the first two are playing way over their heads currently, though.
Ok you got me with Wieters. But you cant use 2010 matusz (i assume that what you meant even though you wrote 2011) when we are comparing from last years team. If Hammel and Davis regresses then you will definitely see a drop in the standings but that hasn't happened so far.
