in more than one way. - - - Josh Beckett's and Holly Fisher got
married this month, according to the Boston Herald. Unlike many
athletes' wives, though, Fisher isn't a model or an actress. She's a
space-engineering consultant and the two went to high school together
in Texas. Beckett is my choice for "comeback of the year". By the AS
break it will be him and Lester. Daisuke and Buchholtz will be a
little behind with almost equal success. Lackaye and Wakefield will
have about the same number of wins.
Every pitch Bucholtz has is better than comparable Beckett pitch...not
sure how you purport your outcome. It's not impossible but Bucholtz
throws harder has a nastier off speed stuff and better control....
that spells better success most times. That BTW isn't a Beckett
indictment as he may do well, I just think it's clear CB has the much
fuller toolbox than 95% of pitchers at this point.
Even during Beckett's miserable 2010 season he had a better curveball
Beckett still has the better control too. Unfortunately for him
getting the ball over the plate more often just meant it got hit
harder more often.
I disagree and as Glenn Ordway might say you're makin my point. Unless
he meant to grove some of those pitches that got hammered I don't
think his control is what it was or needs to be (either that or he was
thinking K instead of groundball too often). Beckett had good velocity
all year unlike other injury years and I didn't see bad offspeed
pitches. Bucholtz had one or two stinkers all year mostly because he
didn't often miss spots in the same situations as Beckett.-
It would be tough to make the case that Player B has the better
Player A STRIKES THROWN= 62% BB/9=3.14 WP=3
Player B STRIKES THROWN=62% BB/9=3.47 WP=7
Now if you are talking about Control within the Strike Zone than
that's a different argument.
