Actually it's more Ted Turner I hate than the Braves, but I tend to dislike his team thru association.

I am a M Giles owner though, so I'll be rooting for him. :-)

7 walks, no K's. I'll pass. The lack of ER doesn't sway my decision at all. ER are luck, but WHIP determines how good a pitcher will be. I don't think I'd like to have either him or Lohse, but if somebody put a gun to my head I'd pick Garland.

Jeez, When a guy (AKA GARLAND's) career whip is 1.46 then you better be real concerned when he walks 7. 7 walked runners illustrates that he's doing better getting guys out but is having similar location problems to what has plagued him throughout his career. If you ask me, 7 walked runners is a warning sign that he's not gonna be keeping this up. Either he'll keep walking guys and get into jams or he'll give up more hits trying to put fastballs in the strikezone.

Obviously the walks are a small concern, but you can't dismiss his performance because he walked a few guys. If he continues to walk guys, yes it is a likely problem.

He isn't hitting my roster yet, but I wouldn't ignore him because he had 7 walsk.


Didn't Matt Clement do the same thing last year? No-hitter through 5 or 6 and they took him out because he threw a ton of walks?
