Mark Buehrle, Marlins agree to 4 year/$58 million contract

Recommended Posts

beats me. Jackson kinda sucks.




agreed..nothing screams success like a career 1.48 WHIP..i don't understand why someone said he's been good for three years now either...he lets way too many guys on base especially for the money he'll command with the thin pitching market.

"He doesn't have elite home run prevention skills."
i would love to see that stat on a baseball card

Buehrle>>>>>Jackson

So one guy sucks, and we can't understand why anyone would be interested. The other guy is basically unquestionable.

Last three years:

Buerhle: 629 IP, 3.91 ERA, 1.316 WHIP
Jackson: 623 IP, 3.96 ERA, 1.363 WHIP

Jackson has allowed 1 earned run more over the last 3 years.

Right now, they're basically the same pitcher. They arrive at their outcomes in different ways, but the outcomes are largely similar.

The difference is one guy is 28 on opening day and the other is 33. Given the next 3-4 years, one guy is a much better bet to be the better pitcher. I'll let you guys decide which.

It's called "Home Runs Allowed." It's not a very difficult concept. Good burn, though.

Sure.

We'll have no bench and will be forced to play one of Coghlan or Dominguez every day, but sure.

That's Mr. Dominguez every day to you.
