....and actually has a legit reason to whine about run support. 8 IP, 4 H, 1 R, 11 K and 1 BB. No runs scored for him though. Loaiza had a shutout through 8 but then gave up a few hits in the 9th and was pulled for Eischen who gave up the run.

Good for him. I don't remember him as anything but a classy guy while he was here. Had a great year and then everyone set these unrealistic expectations on his shoulders.

It's just a shame he lost those 5mph on his fastball.

Nice to see. Loaiza had a magical 2003 season. No matter how bad he was in '04, I will always remember him with his '03 season. Best of luck to him for the rest of his career.

the only thing i begrudge him for is going to new york and saying at a press conference: "it will be nice to finally have some run support"

after getting the most run support in baseball for the first 1/2 of the year

It's sad in a way. I think Loaiza has the stuff to be the guy he was in 2003, but somewhere along the way he caught the Jose Contreras confidence bug.

I wish him nothing but success. I'll never forget being at the All-Star game watching him warm up and the cheer he got from the crowd when announced. It was really awesome. His attitude would fit in great on this year's team, great guy. And it's nice someone can leave this organization and not get ripped by management.

In 2003, he lost 1-0 to the god-awful Tigers - TWICE! IMO, at 23-7 rather than 21-9, he edges Halladay for the Cy Young. He can whine, a little.

I remember during his All Star year, B&B used to whisper and say "Shhhh, don't tell him it's not April". That was always the prediction, that he'd be awesome for April and then be horrible, let's see this year. I haven't followed him, but looks to be giving the Nats solid starts, better than the lines he had last year

I was at one of those losses. The Sox offense looked so feeble, that from about the sixth inning on, fans booed the team when it went out on defense. Lee, Ordonez and Thomas were in the lineup, but the team didn't come close to scoring that night. Against a pitcher who hadn't won all season.

Yeah, I remember both of those unfortunately. I was at the one in Detroit(coming back from that TERRIBLE 4th of July series vs the Devil rays in Tampa). :(: I was actually referring to the comments he made after joining the Yankees last year, despite having been near the top of the AL in average run support per game.

Doesn't Loaiza have the best record in April for active pitchers. I'm not surprised that he's having success in April. He could have a good year considering he pitches in a good pitchers park. :cheers: to Esteban!
