  1. He threw 87.2 innings last season when you include his bullpen stint in the majors.

  2. Thanks for catching that, apologies.

  3. Something to note: Doubront came out averaging about 92 w/ the FB this season but saw his average fastball velocity climb up to the 93-94 range throughout June into early July. It’s tough to argue for capping his innings or that he may fade if he’s actually getting stronger throughout the season. Hopefully the ~92 FBv from his first post ASB start is just rust from the layoff.

  4. Doubront worries me. I keep feeling like he is more of a sell, than a buy, but my pitching blows and I’m not going to be able to do much better. His K rate is down a lot since his June 13th start. Lefty in Fenway is more often than not going to give up a HR, so I think I side with his FIP more than his xFIP, at least for his ROS results.

    I imagine his role is somewhat questionable for next season as well, depending on how he finishes out this one, as I’m sure the Sox will be looking to revamp the rotation in some way.

  5. 87 moves for me. I missed my draft and auto-drafted some studs like Madson and Chris Carpenter, but now I’m 25 points ahead of 2nd place in a 6×6 16 team league.

    Micro-managing works as long as every move you make is +EV.

  6. Cool story bro … what does it have to do with the article you’re commenting on?

  7. So…. both buy and sell. Or neither. He’ll be good, but then again, it’s possible that he’s not actually gonna be good. Gee, thanks for the tremendously helpful article. I’ll be sure to both buy and sell Doubront at the same time.
