    Re: Can Eric Milton get better?

    I'd think that SLG% on BIP would be a very telling stat. When a guy DOES gets hit, is he giving up dribblers or rockets. It'd also give you some idea of how far a high K guy might drop as his K/9 began to come down.

    I'd sort of assume somebody already has thought of this.

    You're on the right track, but you could also just look at 2B and HR rates to gauge the quality of contact allowed.

    Kullman mentioned yesterday on MLB Radio that Milton will not be using a sinker as much this coming year. Does anyone know if he used a sinker before he was a Red or if he learned it from Gullett?

    There is a lot of inherent variability in year to year performance without a change in skill level.

    It was widely reported that Gullet tried to teach him a sinker last year.

    I guess that was after somebody told DanO that he was a fly ball pitcher.

    I think Milton's sinker somehow always forgot to sink

    Oh, it sank all right. Mostly after it finished clearing the outfield fence.

    Yeah, and it still begs the question.
