    Alright, what are we disagreeing about here. (1)That the ball doesn't move in multiple directions? or (2)that wind doesn't effect the balls movement?

    Because his 2010 babip was un-sustainably high, and this year was un-sustainably low. Meaning, no pitcher in history has ever been that high (2010) or low (2012) over any decent sample size.

    I think he's been great the last few years to tell you the truth, and the biggest change last year was luck.

    I can't see a single argument that justifies putting Morrow ahead of Johnson.

    Johnson has a career 3.15 era, 3.20 fip, 3.57 xFIP. He's put up 5.6, and 6.3 fWAR seasons (6.4, 6.8 rWAR). Those...

    What about

    Johnson
    Buehrle
    Morrow
    Dickey
    Romero

    Change from R to L as much as possible, and change styles from 1 pitcher to the next could create problems for the opposition.

    No. You are talking about WAR. Replacement level is not a "bench player". Replacement level is a 0 WAR player. That's it. There's really no argument here.

    Why wouldn't he come close to 100+ RBI?

    RBI has very little to do with the player. They are mostly to do with who's in front of you. He got 110 last year while having guys with OBP%'s of .288,...

    Well, yeah. If he gets worse he'll could be around replacement level. I'm not really sure that is a worthwhile argument. I mean, conversely, if he gets better, he'll be a really good player. I'm...

    Replacement level? No, he's not.

    He's not a good starting catcher. But, he's better than a replacement level catcher.

    Don't get me wrong. I'd trade JP, or package him in a second for a SP/DH (depending on the rest of the details of the trade of course). He's the one I'd prefer to trade out of any of the catchers. ...

    Gose would be the worst batter on our team by far imo. I don't think you want a rook that strikes out that much seeing the most amount of PA's on the team.
