So glad we got rid of him for Guthrie. Those stats are so much worse than

5.92 ERA, 4 GS, 24.1 IP, 5 SO, 10 BB.


Oh and you forgot Clint Barmes who had 6 of his season 10 hits against the Rockies.

Pirates- .155 BA, .200 OBP, 3 RBI's, 2 HR.

Stop acting like Hammel was good here at all.

He was beyond terrible. Glad that bum is gone. He'd show flashes for 4 innings, then the 5 BOOM!! 6 run inning. Happened all the time. Never good have just a smooth game.

More in depth post will follow...

Go Guthrie!!

Let's go over Hammel's time with us:

2009: 34 G, 176.2 IP, 1 CG, 203 H, 94 R, 85 ER, 4.33 ERA

2010: 30 G, 177.2 IP, 0 CG, 201 H, 97 R, 95 ER, 4.81ERA

2011: 32 G, 170.1 IP, 175 H, 100 R, 90 ER, 4.76 ERA


You really want to keep a pitcher, that only threw 27 games as a starter last year and lost his job. Gave up an average of 6.5 hits per start and a 4.76 ERA?


Yet, you rip Guthrie, who is getting used to a new park and a new team? He had a good start, followed by some bad, them some more good, then he got hurt when he was turning it on. Keep in mind, he's pitching at the #1 hitting park in the game.


Keep in mind, Hamilton is playing in Baltimore. They have a top 10 friendly pitchers park. Whereas, we have, according to ESPN, the NUMBER 1 hitters park in the game. That is a huge factor.


There is zero chance Hammel has anywhere NEAR those stats here at Coors, and we'll see good old Hammel later in the year. He's had many chances, and never was consistent.

Hammel was awful. It will be just a matter of time before he blows up in Baltimore....

I'm not done with them, usually I go back a few years. I was just too tired to keep going last night.

Hammel is riding a luck streak that I don't expect to last. His FIP (fielding independent pitching) is hovering at 3, meaning he is one lucky guy to have that large of a spread. FIP is essentially what a pitchers ERA is without calculating their D and luck.

He also is sporting a 0.9 WAR (wins above replacement), which puts him at a below average SP. A 2.0 is good for most players, anything higher means they are a beast.

Calm down man. I took that all into consideration. I was basically just venting and being frustrated about how poor the pitching rotation has been this year. I knew that would get a little backlash. Honestly though because it's Coors field I don't ever expect much out of Guthrie.

I am perfectly calm. I am saying my piece and providing evidence as to why I do not miss Hammel at all.
