GET IT RIGHT HAYDEN YOU IDIOT!
TRIVIA: Two pitchers in all of history have posted seasons with at least 15 wins, less than 8 losses, an ERA+ lower than 85, while giving up at least a hit per inning. The obvious answer here is Barry Zito 2012, who went on to pitch beautifully in the 2013. Who was the other?
That’s right — Shawn Estes in 2004 ! 5.84 ERA!
If you’re thinking nothing good came out of Mike Kickham’s year… you’re right, pretty much. However, he became the second player in MLB history to have > 2 starts, > 3 games finished, and a K/9 over 5.5 while posting a 10+ ERA. Who can guess the other?
That’s right. Roy Halladay in 2000. Since then he’s gone 190-91 with a 3.17 ERA and 7 top-5 Cy Young finishes. I think you can safely expect that from Kickham as well !
