  2. re:Paulino: Aren’t those pitch run values based on a results, meaning they could be skewed by bad luck?

  3. How about Bud Norris? Not sure why he’s had zero notice on FanGraphs. His fastball and slider

  4. Pressed submit too soon. Bud Norris’ fastball and slider show promise, was what I was going to say.

  5. “…we present an intro series looking at some of the players who deserve mentioning but probably will not be appearing on their teams’ Top 10 lists.”

  7. If Paulino can continue to cut down on his walks, I don’t see why he can’t have some success. FIP doesn’t take into account his bloated HR/FB rate, 16.9% is way too high, and should come down considerably. With his flyball rate, and a 10.9 HR/FB rate, I put him at around 1.2 HR/9, which would help his FIP a lot.

  8. Paulino was the 43rd best starter in baseball in tRA* (regressed), better than John Lackey, Matt Cain, Jurrjens, Cliff Lee, Buehrle. Not that he is better than those guys, but he was to a degree unlucky. His k/9-bb/9 suggests it is a very good bet his results improve. Kind of like Wandy Rodriguez heading into this year. Although Wandy’s 2008 e.r.a. wasn’t nearly as high.
