    Gavin Floyd: Bad Start or Bad Year

    What do ya think?

    He was all over the place again today (with terrible body language) and a WHIP slightly under 2.00, isnt gonna work out that well for you over the long haul. Maybe hes coming down from his career year??

    Re: Gavin Floyd: Bad Start or Bad Year

    He was a likely candidate to show some regression, but I wouldn't go as far to predict a bad year. He didn't have command of his curve ball today. When he doesn't have his curve, it's normally problems for him.

    He did a good job of battling and keeping his team in the game and gave them the chance to come back and win.

    Re: Gavin Floyd: Bad Start or Bad Year

    Gaving Floyd is a very overrated pitcher. He allowed 30 HRS, and that's too many (even for pitching in a hitters park).

    He's obviously having control issues. He already has 4 Wild Pitches (he had 9 last year in 200+ innings pitched).

    That said, I'm sure his WHIP will go down. I just think that people got too caught up with his fast start and his win total...

    By whose standards? I honestly have not seen one projection of him duplicating 2008.

    Casual fans. The ones who judge a pitcher based on their wins and wins only.

    Re: Gavin Floyd: Bad Start or Bad Year

    Back to topic though: Would you call 12-15 wins, a 4.5 ERA, and a WHIP of 1.41 bad or just mediocre? Because that's what I'd expect him to have...

    Re: Gavin Floyd: Bad Start or Bad Year

    It's definitely serviceable. 15 wins would be fantastic. We aren't expecting him to be our ace, rather, our third starter.

    Re: Gavin Floyd: Bad Start or Bad Year

    Yeah. I just put in the 15 wins because I didn't want to **** anyone off. I'm guessing it'd be more like 11 or 12
