BABIP, Anyone?

We'll keep the minimum IP at 30, but remove the relievers.  Those helped by low BABIPs:

Be skeptical of those with K/BBs under 2.0.

Now those with abnormally high BABIPs:

NAME BABIP K/BB ISO ERA WHIP
Daisuke Matsuzaka 0.449 2.29 0.255 7.55 2.10
Ricky Nolasco 0.395 2.94 0.226 7.62 1.73
Ervin Santana 0.387 1.62 0.198 7.47 1.85
John Lackey 0.385 3.50 0.161 6.10 1.57
Felipe Paulino 0.375 2.18 0.183 6.18 1.72
Scott Olsen 0.366 1.61 0.268 7.24 1.90
Manny Parra 0.365 1.34 0.191 7.52 1.92
Brian Moehler 0.363 2.21 0.231 6.66 1.68
Sidney Ponson 0.362 1.41 0.141 7.27 1.73
Scott Kazmir 0.358 1.21 0.179 7.69 1.95
Justin Masterson 0.356 2.56 0.112 3.88 1.39
Shane Loux 0.355 1.00 0.121 5.40 1.72
Cole Hamels 0.354 4.67 0.202 4.62 1.38
Chan Ho Park 0.352 1.61 0.160 6.08 1.67
Jordan Zimmermann 0.351 3.75 0.187 5.37 1.35

  • Dice-K still has a control problem, but that is an absurd amount of hits (51 in 31 IP).
  • Nolasco, Santana, Lackey, Hamels...they will all get better.
  • I think Zimmermann should be owned in all leagues.  He has 13 Ks against 2 BBs and 3 ER in his last two starts spanning 13 IP.
