Phillies’ 2011 Pitcher Projections

Posted By Christopher Rowe On Jan 3 2011 @ 5:46 pm In Philadelphia Phillies | 7 Comments

The Bill James Handbook 2011 released its projections for the upcoming season. Naturally these numbers can change should the Phillies sign themselves some offensive help, an improved bullpen or a new pitching coach but… based on historical statistics, ballpark characteristics and the players currently projected into the starting lineup, this is the consensus for our “Four Aces,” “Four Horsemen,” “Phour Loco,” “Fantastic Four,” “Five Guys Named Moe” or whatever we are calling the starting rotation:

[1]

Pitcher                  ERA   Wins Losses   Innings Walks Strikeouts

Roy Halladay      3.16       18         9         245       38        190
Roy Oswalt         3.38        16        9         221       52         176
Cole Hamels       3.45        15        9         219       58        209
Cliff Lee               3.50        14      10         216       49        169

Joe Blanton or Kyle Kendrick are the primary candidates for the fifth starter’s spot until another move is made.

So what ARE we calling the Phillies 2011 Starting Rotation? FOUR ACES? FOUR HORSEMEN, PHOUR LOCO, FANTASTIC FOUR, MT. PHIMORE, FIVE GUYS NAMED MOE, THREE MEN AND A BABY?, FAB FOUR? BIGGER THAN JESUS?, FOUR FOUR FOUR – HOW DO YOU LIKE ME, HOW DO YOU LIKE ME?…  

You decide. Best nickname wins two tickets to Phillies game in 2011
