    The fact of the matter is that Lohse wasn't worth squat and WK dealt a potentially valuable chip for him. $3 million dollar pitchers with 7 ERAs aren't very valuable. He should have cost pennies on the dollar.

    Lohse has never developed a strike out pitch, nor has he ever had the raw potential for one. Ward has shown that he MIGHT have the potential to develop a strike out pitch at higher levels.

    that said, if Lohse stays far away from the rotation, i like the deal.

    I love how people call Lohse a league average starter when his season ERA is 2.29 runs above the NL average. He's actually no where near league average.
    I miss Adam Dunn.

    That's not fair, he got his numbers in the AL, where the ERAs are higher. I'm not saying he's had a good season at all, but at least use comparable numbers instead of slanting things.

    I posted his career stats against the league average. He wasn't average in the A.L. either.


    Happy birthday by the way,Dan S.

    I just meant the post above mine comparing his numbers to the NL average wasn't really fair, since he was pitching in the AL. Probably should've quoted that in my post. And thanks!
