Between Bauer (253), Gray (205) and Castillo (226), that's nearly 700 strikeouts. Toss in DeScalafini who had 167 K's in 167 innings, that's around 850 and four guys with more K's than anyone in the Brewer rotation. Defense has zero effect on strikeouts. The Reds rotation has a lot less doubt than the Brewers.



I agree it is less doubt, it just isn't no doubt. Bauer has still only had a sub 4 ERA once in his career. Gray has only managed to stay healthy back to back seasons once in his career and has not looked great 2 of the past 4 years. Castillo has been pretty streaky as well though he is the one I'm most sure of. DeScalfani's FIP has been about 4.70 over the past 2 years. People look at the ERA"s last year which were all way better than the skills and just assume they are going to be amazing, I think you are going to see that rotation isn't as good as people want to believe it is, that's all I'm saying. From just a straight up run prevention as a team standpoint I expect the Reds will be worse this year because last year there was tons of positive variance in the stats that I don't think they repeat.

Derek Johnson effect [wink]

On an even sadder note, we can add Wade Miley to the mix once again.

That would show up in the actual peripherals, not just in ERA and nowhere else.

Though a mediocre division, this would make for one heck of an exciting race and tiebreaker games at the end of the season.

They still stubbornly refuse to address the rotation outside of absolute bargain-basement deals, and without Yasmani Grandal, their lineup looks like Yelich and a whole lot of wishcasting.

This from an article on MLB.com by Richard Justice.

Hard to take anything these guys say seriously.

Grandal 2.5 war 119 ops+
Narvaez 2.1 war 120 ops+

The rotation is a concern, sure. It has been the last 2 years and the Brewers have figured out a way to compete.

Right? Both last year & over the last three years, Omar & Yasmani have been essentially the same hitter.

Maybe Justice mentions it in the article (no click from me), but the real difference is in their receiving/framing numbers.

Something else to consider is plenty of posters doubted the validity of those framing numbers, both overall in general & specifically Grandal's dazzling marks in that category, so it might not even matter that much.

It also seems like Narvaez really wants to improve his receiving too(obviously). He said one of his goals this year is to be ranked in the top half of the league.
