• Maybe Yanks Should Have Picked Up Magrane Too?

    Posted by on May 28th, 2009 · Comments (3)

    A fun little list…From 1901 to 2009, lefty pitchers, through age 28 or younger, who were at least 6′ 6″ tall and weighed at least 230 lbs, and who had at least 100 games started, ranked by ERA+:

      Cnt Player            ERA+  Ht   Wt  GS From  To
    +----+-----------------+----+----+---+---+----+----+
        1 C.C. Sabathia      121 6.07 250 264 2001 2009 
        2 John Candelaria    119 6.07 232 211 1975 1982 
        3 Joe Magrane        113 6.06 230 147 1987 1993 
        4 Dennis Rasmussen    97 6.07 230 104 1983 1987 
    

    *Player ages are computed as their age on June 30th

    Three of the four have pitched for the Yankees…which is interesting.

    As Yankees fans, let’s hope that CC ends up being more durable (as a starting pitcher) than Candelaria as he hits his 30′s…

      During the offseason, the report was 313. I have no idea where I saw it but I know I saw it somewhere. 313 seems much more realistic.

      all i know is, there was a time i weighed around 260 (would go up by a few or down by a few, but around there) and i didn’t look like that and I’m 6’1″
