letters about letters
josh from chicago writes in to protest some of rob from chicago's ideas:
that's some seriously stupid shit.
webb at #2?
i'm happy to have him on my team and all, but...
how is this person factoring in age?
seems really really weird.
you people liking all these young doods.
they're better than willis by far.
Top Ten Starters
1. M Prior, by far
2. B Webb, show me again, too many bb
3. J Vazquez, too many HR
4. J Schmidt, no weaknesses, but isn't he hurt?
5. P Martinez, will be 32, gets hurt
6. J Beckett, too many bb?
7. D Willis, show me again, lots of bb
8. K Wood, way too many bb
9. R Halladay, too many hits?
10. E Loaiza, show me again, 32
in rob's defense, dontrelle willis has some serious lefty mojo. lefties can somehow get away with way less strikeouts than righties. also rob explicitly stated that hits allowed was a category in his list, which makes that aspect of the analysis more of a performance than an ability metric. schilling and johnson were not included because they didn't have full seasons. webb: hits again, and he seriously is a motherfucker.
why don't you guys just go to a bar and fight it out like true chicagoans? or you could go to a pussy bar like sheffield's.
