I guess the old axiom rings true: never pick a pitcher for PTC.

Where's my elephant gun? :)

I gave up after the second game of the season realizing it ain't worth it for a case of Hamm's.

Giving up less than double digit hits would be a good start......

Thomas got the big knock, and it was the game winner.

PTC is exclusively for hitters is it not? Either way, I'd give it to Frank, not Garland.

Yeah, I agree with the choice. I had picked Garland for my PTC today though, so I was giving the ump a "hard time."

And unless the rules have changed, pitchers can win the PTC. I know the bullpen has won at least once this season, and I'm pretty sure Loaiza won once as well.

Not at all.


1. Qualifying criteria, by position.

Position Players and DH (including the bench)

Qualify to win PTC by contributing significant offensive performance, measured hitting safely, scoring, batting in runs, stealing bases, drawing walks, avoiding strikeouts, advancing runners, avoiding double-plays, not leaving runners on base (especially with two out), etcetera.
Qualify to win by playing a key role in the inning the Sox tie or take the lead, particularly in the late innings.

Starting Pitchers

Qualify to win PTC when the Sox score less than 3 runs by allowing less than 3 earned runs while pitching 7+ innings.
Qualify to win PTC when the Sox score 3 or more runs by holding the opposition to less than 5 hits OR pitching a complete game OR pitching 7+ innings of shutout baseball.

Relievers

Qualify to win PTC by bailing out a starter who stands to lose, by pitching shutout or near-shutout ball 2+ innings.
Qualify to win PTC by pitching through seemingly impossible relief situations unscathed or nearly-unscathed, including inherited runners.

Well the first half of last season pitchers were the people to pick, or at least Loaiza. But then it seems to have become more hitter oriented. But thats just how its seemed to me.

A few years ago, the pitchers won ALL the time. So, last year we changed the rules to make it tougher for the pitchers to win. This year the offense has been hot (Sox lead the AL in HR by a wide margin) and the pitching has been pretty average so far.

Not that big of a shock why pitchers aren't winning any PTC at present. Garland came close yesterday, but when the Sox scored the 3rd run, it made it more likely that a hitter would win.
