Litsch is Just This Guy, You Know?

with 3 comments

Under the headline “who are these guys?”, the ginger kid is getting a little love over at ESPN’s out of the box. If you don’t have time to read both paragraphs, the revelation is that he throws a lot of strikes (and that somehow that leads to fewer walks).

While I’m not going to pick him up for my fantasy team and think we should enjoy this flash in the pan until hits start falling in and/or this cutterballer/perpetual slider thing he has going ends his rather unexpected career prematurely (see: Chacin, Gustavo), on wins alone might not young Jesse be heading to the all-star game?? CRAZY.

  3. I actually like Litsch and I think he can remain a fairly decent pitcher for a while…

    Comparisons with Chacin are uncalled for… as Chacin has no velocity and no control. He was also sporting an astronomical ERA (what was it? 9-4 and 5.5 ERA?)

    While he did step up during the ’05 season, I think it was a big surprise to everybody…. and he only had a pitch and a half in his arsenal (and a very whacky delivery)
