Fans (?) in Miami will be treated to one hell of an excellent pitching matchup tonight at 7:10. I mean, just take a look at these stat lines and try to control yourself. You'll likely be overcome with the desire to start an online petition to make this the All-Star Game starting matchup, or even name them Cy Youngs for their leagues.
|2009 - Jason Berken||1-3||5||5||0||0||0||0||26.1||33||20||20||2||10||16||6.84||1.63|
|2009 - Ricky Nolasco||3-6||12||12||1||0||0||0||61.2||82||52||49||9||17||55||7.15||1.61|
BUT SERIOUSLY, FOLKS! Nolasco is on the short list for Fantasy Baseball's Biggest Bust, 2009 (Starting Pitcher), up there with Daisuke Matsuzaka and Rich Harden, both of whom are on my fantasy team. I just put Daisuke on the FA market. I've seen enough!
Nolasco has also posted a 2.50 ERA in three starts since returning from a stint at AAA, so maybe I shouldn't bust on him so hard.
