Anyone heard anything as to why he hasnt pitched since 8/2? I thought it was just the lack of games New Orleans is playing but they are now having guys start a second game since he has last started.

 

Hopefully he is ok but weird how they skipped him in the rotation and he isnt on the DL or anything.

 

He should be up here in a little as long as he is healthy. He has been dominant in a hitter friendly league pretty much all year.

I think thats it. When they shut down Fernandez they want him to be able to finish the year so they skipped a turn.

 

I hope we see both Flynn and Conley for fernandez and koehler come end of august/ september.

 

 

I want the entire rotation taken out.

I want to see Heaney, Nicolino, Flynn, Conley, and DeSclafani as our rotation for the last 3 weeks.

Anyone know what has changed in Flynn over the last three starts? He has gotten considerably less strikeouts, and based on box scores has seemed more hitable. I like the fact that he has been more "efficient" but if it means his K/9 is reduced I'm definitely not for it.

It's late in the year, he could be tiring out. He just reached 155 innings on the year, which is the most he's pitched at any level. Could just be tired. If he gets called up in September and slotted into the rotation, I don't expect him to get more than 5-6 innings a start, and let's say that's 4 starts, 20-24 innings total, which could get him to 175-179 [let's say 180]. Not a bad thing.

Pacific Coast League: Brian Flynn, New Orleans – Speaking of looking past the W’s and the L’s, I hope you don’t mind if I put on my Brian Kenny hat here for a second. Here are two stat lines, sans win-loss record, and you decide who the better pitcher was.

Pitcher X: 23 G, 23 GS, 138 IP, 2.80 ERA, 1.21 WHIP, 3.05 FIP, 127 H, 40 BB, 122 K

Pitcher Y: 23 G, 23 GS, 125.2 IP, 3.15 ERA, 1.46 WHIP, 4.67 FIP, 103 H, 81 BB, 89 K

The answer is obviously Pitcher X. A lower ERA, a significantly lower WHIP, a much lower FIP and almost half the walks over the same span. Pitcher X is Brian Flynn. Pitcher Y is Johnny Hellweg. Brian Flynn went 6-11 in front of a New Orleans squad that ranked at the bottom of the PCL with 3.8 runs per game. Hellweg went 12-5 for Nashville, who owned a noticeably better offense this season. Hellweg was the PCL’s choice for Pitcher of the Year. It’s pretty easy to see they valued wins more than the other stats there. I’m not willing to do the same, although for the record — no pun intended – I’m closer to Jay Jaffe’s “stick [the win] in the junk drawer� philosophy than Kenny’s #killthewin. (Actual Pitcher of the Year: Hellweg)
