I think I said this in the offseason, but he reminds me a lot of Steve Parris.
The 1999 defense did help Parris, but he still wasn't exactly a great pitcher.
Belisle seems to give up a lot of hard hit balls...
Yes, last year Belisle did have a high LD% of 22.0%. It still doesn't quite make up for all the hits he gave up IMO, but a good chunk of it...
"On-base percentage is great if you can score runs and do something with that on-base percentage," Baker said. "Clogging up the bases isn't that great to me."
