    Nothing against Kuhl. I just have trouble getting excited about:

    a) #4-5 starter types
    b) the possibility that a #4-5 starter will make a significant difference to the squad


    Not picking a fight with you, PSU, as I love stories like Kuhl's, love grinders like Kuhl, and think that he's maken the most of his opportunity. Still, the Pirates season should not be hinging on this guy if the Pirates are a legitimately talented team.


    You don't think it would be huge for the rotation to get 190-200 IP at about a 3.90 ERA from their 3/4 starter? Do you not like him because he isn't on the baseball America top 100? What's your reasoning?

    He pitched 150 total innings last year. I don't think the Pirates will let him get 200 innings this year. His walk rate was pretty good but his whiff rate was a good bit below average. The league whiff rate is about 8/9innings.


    Is that for starters or are you including relievers? He has thrown 150 innings each of the last 3 years, so it's not crazy to think he jumps up to close to 190-200. His contact rates were good as well. A strikeout per inning would seem to be high for MLB average for starters.

    No team with a legitimate chance at the postseason would ever have this sentence in their discussion. :)/>

    Chad Kuhl was pretty good last year as a 23 year old. 3.95 FIP, almost 7 K/9, and 2.5 BB/9. He was really durable in the minors so if he can keep his ERA around or below 4 and eat 200 IP then that's a very valuable starter. He could go either way because he doesn't have stuff that wows you, but if he can get us those 200 IP then we could end up with a pretty good rotation.

    Isn't it the GMs job to find guys that work? Instead Shitlovington acquires guys who clearly suck. That's not his fault according to the media. OK Dunlap


    I thought Keon Broxton sucked but it looks like he's good. Neal gave him away.
