You really want to start a retarded argument don't you.

I bet you have no idea what the top BABIP season by a hitter do you?

No, I have no idea.  My point remains, Trout who is amazing, and hits the ball as hard as anyone consistently will see his BABIP normalize.  Why shouldn’t we expect Quintana’s BABIP to normalize.  So far the answers I have been given is he walks a lot of batters, which I don’t think has anything to do with BABIP and the other answer I got is he allowed a long fucking home run.  Teach me why one would normalize and the other won’t.  If you tell me it is because Quintana gives up too many hard hit balls, then so be it.  What is the highest BABIP allowed over the course of a season?

Is Quintana actually worse than Harvey and Cahill.  It’s hard to believe that.  Goddamn. 

It appears he may be. This shit is tiresome and just makes me lose all interest in following baseball

@beatlesrule the reason they are swinging at curveballs is because they are being fooled.  He throws 100 mph, so they are looking for a pitch in a zone and hoping it is the fastball.  They don’t have time to adjust when they have to anticipate 100 mph.

Blanton's ERA when he was here was only 6.04, compared to the abject disasters that Teheran and Quittana have been 

That certainly puts things in perspective

Yes. And I think we are all in for an even more impressive effort in his next outing.

Because Trout is the best player in the league and Quintana sucks. To use an extreme example, if I went out there, my BABIP would be 0, because I suck. It would never normalize because I'd just never put a ball in play.

It's real simple, don't swing at his curveball until he's actually in the zone for god sakes.

Have you ever faced a pitcher who can throw a fastball in the upper 90s and a curveball with that much movement?

I'm not ready to decide that the  Angels are this bad and the pitching is this bad and the defense is this bad yet. It's way too early. If the same thing is happening in June, I'll start to worry. So far though, Minasian has done a terrible job assembling the pitching staff.

Yea, that is backwards.

The pitching is that bad. Maybe not the defense as I think it will improve.
