Billy Koch allowed 34 earned runs last year...fine. Here is the unbelieveable statistic about that though-

Of those 34 runs, 24 came against 2 teams-Toronto and the Rangers. So if you calculate that out, that is a 1.15 ERA against the rest of the league :D:

Here is the link (http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/players/splits?statsId=6218)



I found that to be very intresting, in a good way, of course.

HMMMM so against the GOOD teams, he is unhittable. Gee, like some of us have said, Thank God we have a REAL closer now.

Weird - if that doesn't have "tipping pitches" written all over it, I don't know what does. Think those teams somehow knew what was coming??

Well the Toronto thing I can understand...it was his old team...they are likely to know his stuff and tendecies better than other teams

That is very interesting on Koch, I wonder if that has been the case in his career.

For the up coming season, Billy mentioned that he may expand on some of the type of pitches he throws in game situations. The end result could be a fastball that looks EVEN faster to the hitter...YES.

Sandy Alomar jr. was on air with Dave Wills yesterday and Sandy commented on Bartolo Colon saying how he matured from his Cleveland days.

Alomar said that Colon would just rear back and try and blow people away, but now he mixes in pitches.

When asked about his strike out total being down this past season Alomar said that his wins went up but his strike outs went down adding that Colon won 20 games, 10 in each league which is incredible in itself.

Sandy believes that the lower strike outs are proof of how much more dominating Colon has become. Colon has put so much fear of a strike out in the batters mind that the batter swings very early in the count, which resulted in a lot of easy outs .

Dammit!

Reading this thread makes it difficult to not get excited about this year's team.
Our closer struggles against 2 teams we rarely see and our #1 starter (my opinion guys!) is having hitters getting themselves out!

How much longer until opening day?

We should have a countdown on this site!

Maybe someone could explain this to the media and to cub fans. Interesting how they always point out how awesome the cubs pitchers strike out totals are. To that I point out how amazing it is that none of their pitchers that are starting this year have ever won more than 14 games in a season except for sirotka or estes (two strikeout monsters :?: ).

He also faced Texas 10 times last year which is a lot for a closer, so there is a chance they just got used to seeing him...

It's not like we'll ever need to beat Texas or Toronto...

I don't know about that Kermit-well take any win we can get. Hopefully, facing those 2 pitching staffs, we are winning by a margin by which we don't need Koch... :D:

I think he meant in a big game and or the playoffs.

Bartolo just took the advice of Crash Davis and threw more ground balls than strike outs. Strike outs are facist. Ground balls are democratic.
