Re: Additional Info from Jayson Stark - Milton/Ortiz
And what has Ortiz done as a starting pitcher the past two seasons? 5.28 ERA, 1.51 WHIP, 4.93 K/9
That's not an upgrade. It's just another horrible pitcher.
As for Wilson, either you understand park effects or you don't. He was just as sub-mediocre last year as he was the previous three.
I don't mind Milton. Of the three, he's the one with upside. Yet he hasn't had a good season since 2001. If the best you're going to get out of him is some mid-4.00s ERA then the only "improvement" you're going to see is a staff that's gone from hideous to butt ugly.
