He's not the answer. As terrible as Leiter has been this year, Valdez has been comparably worse in recent years. This start coupled with his last rehab start (2 IP 7 R 6 H) changes nothing.

You see, this is just flat out not true. Valdez was one of the best number 5 starters in baseball last year, he was the ONLY number 5 starter in baseball to win 14 games and when he pitched on the road he was nothing short of unstoppable. On the road, he pitched like Roger Clemens, at home he pitched like Darren Oliver.

Wasn't he better at home last year?

I'm pretty sure it was on the road, though I could be wrong.

It was at home.

2.55 ERA and 1.04 WHIP at home (cavernous PPS and Petco)

8.56 ERA and 2.04 WHIP away

 

Maybe you were thinking of 2002 and 2003 when he was playing with Texas and without humid air and deeply set fences.

 

Another interesting stat:

Run support - 5.77 in 2004
