In actual actuality, 100 ERA+ starters are slightly above average, relative to other starters, as the ERA+ figure includes relievers numbers.


Nah. Good relievers can end up with 200+ ERA+s. They can be off the charts.

Twins Manifesto: Build for .500, hope for more.

#5s typically don't pitch full seasons, nor do many #4s.


exactly.....there are twice as many 4s and 5s as 1-3s......

It's been a fun year so far, GO Twins.

I believe that was Snepp’s point.

Ok, personally I say the Twins sign the guy and then just go play some baseball. Only the Man Upstairs know what will happen, I just love baseball and am ready for the season to start.


But that's just me... and I seem to remember my folks saying something about paint chips and a van down by the river???
