Can We Talk Baseball Already?

Posted By on Fri, Jan 4, 2008 at 2:24 PM

With only 41 days until pitchers and catchers report to Spring Training, The Diatribe blog finishes its roundup of projections for the 2008 Tribe. After taking care of the offensive stats last week, the blog's focus shifts to the pitching staff, using the Bill James Handbook 2008, a baseball-geek's stat bible. The verdict: The Indians’ staff shapes up to be about as steady as it was last year in the first four slots. Look for CC to move down a couple of notches in wins and ERA and the same to happen to Fausto. It’d be hard to expect another A-plus year from each of those guys, so this is no surprise. Paul Byrd and Jake Westbrook project out to have fantastic years, improving in k/bb ratio, ERA, and WHIP. Joe Bo, Raffy Right, and Raffy Left all look promising too. In other news from the Holy Shit Can Baseball Start Already? department, Yahoo sports currently has the Indians second in their very very preseason power rankings. -- Vince Grzegroek
