Sat 17 Mar Spring Training Game

Man, what a slugfest.

Although the Birds came out on top, this was not a pretty game.  It was also the first sign of Looper's vulnerability as a starter.  The spring phantasm of unrealistic performance has been dispelled.

His line for today:

  IP  H  R  ER  BB  SO  HR    ERA  WHIP  GO  AO
 3.0  7  4   4   2   1   1  12.00  3.00   5   3

His ERA jumped from the unlikely 0.83 to a "back to reality" 3.21.  His total ST line now:

 G  GS    IP   H  R  ER  BB  SO  HR   ERA  WHIP  GO  AO   SLG   OBA
 4   4  14.0  17  5   5   3   6   1  3.21  1.43  20  16  .421  .333

So guys are now hitting .298 against him, w/ a .333 OBP and .421 slugging.  Pretty much league average-ish.

On the plus side, at least he's not walking a lot of guys, right?  :-/

His next start should be telling.  

But does anyone think it will make any difference on whether or not he lands that 5th starter spot? Personally, I don't.  Alea iacta est.
