Carlos Silva: 9 BB in 188.1 IP

That is outstanding control 8-o

Are there any such records for control over a minimum number of IP?
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.

He'd rank 7th All Time in BB/9. And all 6 guys ahead of him pitched in the 1800's 8-o 8-o

His is 0.430; the lowest modern ratio is 0.660 by Bret Saberhagen in 1994 (13 BB/ 177.1 IP) and 31st all time.

He must qualify for that stat because Saberhagen does and pitched fewer innings.

Just incredible. 8-o

He gives up a lot of hits though: 10.1 H/9.

Best Pitches/IP ratio by far in the AL too. I'd bet he throws one of the best strike percentages in the majors.

I don't have the numbers offhand but I think I remember Joe Magraine (think that's the right spelling) having similar numbers back in the late 80's/early 90's for the Cardinals. Gave up something like a .300 baa while walking next to no one. :D

Magrane never walked fewer than 51 in a season and that came in only 165 innings.

Hardly in the same planet as Silva.

The name that comes to mind to me is David Wells. 20 walks last season and 20 the year before, but he's still a ways away from Silva as his best BB/9 is 0.845 to Silva's 0.430.

Just cause you don't walk people doesn't make you outstanding. Its a cool stat but he gets hit to much for it to mean anything
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I think it means he's pretty good, along with the 3.44 ERA and 1.17 WHIP. Also it means he has impeccable control, just not the greatest stuff.

His perfomances vs. Baltimore, NYY and Boston were pretty impressive for a pitcher of his stature.

anyone know what his OBPA is? Heck, do they even have that stat? If so, isn't it quite a bit more relevant that BAA?

Wouldn't that tell you the very same thing WHIP does just in a different formula?

Pretty much except HBP would be included.

His WHIP is 1.173 (OK I guess) and his ERA is 3.441 (not bad).

9-8 71 K in 188 IP.

Not really fantasy worthy except perhaps in shallow or AL only leagues. I guess that he just lays it up there for guys to hit and he relies on his defence to get the outs.

I always get this guy mixed up with Jose Silva who was the best prospect in the Jays organization for years until we gave up on him and traded him. Then I think that he blew out his elbow with the Phillies.
