    Harang's Spring Numbers

    Wow, has Aaron been stinkin awesome this spring. I knew he'd done well, but lets take a closer look at his stats:

    14 innings pitched
    10 hits
    1 run (1 earned run) - on 1 home run
    0 Base on balls
    1 Hit by Pitch
    9 Strike outs
    5.8 K/9 (not awesome, but not bad)
    A ground out/fly out ratio of 24-9 (HUGE in our ballpark)
    82 pitches, 74 of which went for strikes
    Before the TB game, he had a nasty .75 WHIP (I couldn't find more recent stats)

    In his 4 innings vs. Philly, he threw 23 pitches, all 23 for strikes. I'd say his location is pretty good this spring.

    The fantasy dude at SI likes to look at three stats in spring training: GO/FO, NP/IP and K/BB

    Aaron's stats in these categories:

    GO/FO: 2.67
    NP/IP: 5.85
    K/BB: Infinity

    pretty good numbers, compare to others that SI claims will do well this season: http://sportsillustrated.cnn.com/200...ty.feet/1.html

    Above all else, this "82 pitches, 74 of which went for strikes" makes me the happiest. If you don't walk people and you don't give up a ton of homers, you'll be successful. Look at Carlos Silva and Brad Radke.
    Games are won on run differential -- scoring more than your opponent. Runs are runs, scored or prevented they all count the same. Worry about scoring more and allowing fewer, not which positions contribute to which side of the equation or how "consistent" you are at your current level of performance.

    WHen you look at small market teams winning the World Series, the Twins have done a better job that the vaulted A's.

    That's a joke, right?

    The Twins' last WC was in 1991 -- before the big salary boom, before today's huge difference between big market and small market teams. The A's last WC was only two years earlier in 1989.

    Including 2000, the Twins are 513-458, with 3 playoff appearances. Their top win total was 94 in 2002.

    The A's are 571-400 in that same span, with 4 playoff appearances. Their top win total was 103 in 2002. That's almost 10 more wins per season, with one more playoff appearance.

    There's no question which one has done a better job.


    But yes, Aaron Harang is having a good spring.

    Harang is having a great spring ... and it doesn't mean a thing at this point.

    Why do you insist on bringing reality into this?

    On a side not after reviewing the SI list, I read yesterday that the Mets are thinking of putting Heilman back in the pen(he has been terrific this spring) and giving the 5th spot to Bannister. I would love to have that guy.
