God he is horrible. You can count on him to give up at least 2 HRs and 5 runs a game.
The most overrated pitcher on the Braves staff.
Velocity has improved dramatically..
Believe half of what you see, and none of what you hear.
Wrong. The guy was the best pitcher in baseball the first half of last season. Second half he didnt do as good but he did not do bad. Plus he has been hurt.
What he did in the first 3 months of baseball last year don't matter. After the allstar break he was horrible and he hasn't gotten any better. He gets rocked every game and relies on the offense scoring 6+ runs to bail him out.
You can downvote all you want but it's true. He is the worst starter in the rotation.
Oh and just to keep you updated, so far in today's game in 3 INNINGS he has thrown 70 pitches, 1 HR, 4 walks, and 3 runs.
So you just pick the time period that validates your argument and that's what you go with? Makes sense.
Jair Jurrjens three year averages:
K/B ratio: 2/1
Yeah, that guy sucks. I wouldn't want him. You probably think Tim Lincecum sucks too since he has had a rough start to the season or maybe Josh Beckett since he had a terrible season a couple of years ago.
Jurrjens sucks NOW. You're the one picking a time period and trying to make it relevant to this year. He sucks THIS year.
Beckett and Lincecum are World Series winning pitchers, and Jurrjens couldn't hold their jock.
My only point is. Would you be bitching about Josh Beckett having a 5+ ERA for the entire season of 2010 like you are bitching about Jair Jurrjens having maybe a 4.5 ERA over 3 months? Two pitchers that have proven over a span of 4 major league seasons that they can have a ERA well under 4. I think you are overreacting slightly.
