They are all on the thread critisizing Farrell for going with bailey. Led by ADG, the one who said Doubie didnt belong in the rotation. Now hes all over Farrell for not letting him go 9. Imagine that
If Doubie can harness this talent and become more consistent and take his offseason workouts seriously, he could be a TOTR starter. He certainly has the suff for it.
Honestly, I always though he was a #3 at most. Id love to be wrong about that.
By the way, we signed Ball today.
Doubront pitched a great game last night and should have been allowed to come out and complete it. Every ML pitcher that is with a club for several years probably has a gem or two to his credit. That does not make Doubront a good pitcher; right now, he isn't. He is at 4.38/1.486. Those are not impressive numbers. To me, a "good" pitcher is one who is consistently good with a few hiccups that every ML pitcher has. Doubront has been bad with a few acceptable games and a rare excellent one. Last night's effort does not, by itself, change my opinion about Doubront one bit.

Doubront has 12 starts. In 11 of those 12 starts, he has allowed 3 ERs or less.
Doubront has 12 starts. In 6 of those 12, he has allowed 3 ERs or more.
Of the 5 games he has allowed 3 ERS, he has pitched these amounts of innings:
That's an average of just under 6 IP.
I'm not trying to say Doubront is doing poorly. He has done a great job recently, and as a 5th starter, his numbers compare favorably with probably any other team. In fact, his numbers compare favorably to many teams 3 and 4 starters, and a few #2s.
