Darvish Finest Attributes Make No Sense

SDS

Compare to Gallen’s stats and attributes. Opponent average is nearly identical and Darvish has better K rate, yet Gallen has much higher attributes.

Please change. @Victor_SDS

Edit: To be clear, I'm not here to complain about which 5 pitches Darvish was given. This is a subjective process. However, Darvish's H/9 and K/9 attributes make zero sense when compared to other Finest SP.

They gave him a sinker which he has never thrown. SDS needs to fix pitching so these pitchers can throw their pitches and not give them pitches that fit the meta. It’s bs

If you want Yuuuu to throw all of his REAL pitches, here they are, in no order:

  1. Four-seam fastball.
  2. curve
  3. Slow curve
  4. Power Curve
  5. changeup
  6. high-speed changeup
  7. forkball
  8. split-finger fastball
  9. ONE-SEAM fastball (Didn't know this was a thing)
  10. two-seam fastball
  11. vertical slider
  12. slider
  13. cut fastball
  14. Sinker

This shows that SDS did in fact get it right.

  1. 8 seam fastball

Its not BS. Darvish throws like 14-15 pitches actually. Giving him a sinker is not outrageous even if it isn’t used alot in his repertoire

Correct, he throws 14, as you can see the exact ones above. He is insane, he will eventually have 20. To catch him has to be a NIGHTMARE.

Yeah it definitely must be a nightmare. Pretty sure the Cubs signed his personal catcher from Texas when Darvish initially signed a few years back. This season Caratini caught all of his starts I believe. I live in Chicago and watched most of the games.

Correct, Caratini caught all of his. And yes, they signed his personal catcher to start.

Yep. It's not like them giving the Big Train a sinker or anything.

Caratini had a decent season too, wouldn't be surprised if they dump Willlllson at some point this offseason since the Cubs like to act like they are a small market team these last couple years.

SDS

Nit a fan of his attributes compared to Bauer’s.....

I agree. That is what I have been saying, they will probs trade Wilson because Caratini is pretty good, getting better.

Yeah it wouldn't be a bad idea at all, they need some bullpen help big time. I am obviously a Dodgers fan, but one of my favorite players is Rizzo and I hope the Cubs do right by him and re-sign him.

Yeah and I think Javy and Kris are expiring after next season too. Lots of decisions to be made thats for sure.
