I've read this stuff about baldwin has the worst era in major league history for someone who has 1000 innings.

First, I believe that stat is worst era among active pitchers. But maybe you're right.

But remember, 1000 innings is a narrow subset. How many pitchers who start games ever reach 1000 innings? A small percentage.

I ask you - look down the ERAs of starting pitchers in the AL and you will find JB in the top 40. What does that mean? Well, with 14 teams in the AL, being 40th means that you could be a number 3 starter on some team (with 5 starters per team, there are 70 starters in the AL).

The Dodgers got a 4th or 5th starter. That's worth more than 32 year old outfielder, a A ball pitcher and whoever the hell the other guy is with his lofty era.

I see per BBT, we're actually giving the dodgers cash as well.
Shrewd kenny.

That most likely is to pay some of Baldwin's contract, the LA Times this morning said the Dodgers didn't really want to pay the rest of 2 million dollars or whatever he is owed for this year.
