Re: The Official 'Who Do We Protect from the Rule Five Draft?' Thread
There's actually some very important dissimilarity between Wells and Haynes or Anderson, and that has to do with their best years, their ceiling (which maybe Wells might just get back to.) Anderson in his best year (2001) had a 5.10 ERA, a 1.53 WHIP. Haynes in his best, 2002 with us, a 4.12 and 1.48. Wells in 2002 had a 3.58 and a 1.35 WHIP, in 2003 a 3.28 and a 1.25 WHIP. These were over 198 and 197 innings. These best two years actually are a little better than Arroyo's best two, depending on how he finishes this one, as this is his second best campaign statistically.
