ray king takes his licks over at the birdwatch and cardnilly, wherein we learn that king "has actually been outperformed by the hypothetical replacement player. By a lot." both sites have good data, and here's a little more: batters are hitting .281 against king this year and slugging .453, both easily career worsts. his strikeout rate is also a career worst, 5.09; ditto his rate of homers allowed, one per 38 batters faced. ay ay ay . . . . .
