    That would be a desirable outcome.
    That’s my whole thing, too.

    They both have BB/9's that are too high, the difference is, while I think the head games are a little overrated, Newcomb seems to have a better head on his shoulders than Foltynewicz, and there's something else that causes his control to be shaky, not sure what, but it seems mechanical, given that he often seems like he's missing at the same place.

    Their starts vs Boston are going to be interesting. Given the way they've went and Boston's very likely a more patient team, while they could pitch well (in their patented 5-6 innings), they could very well BOTH end up having a 4 IP 3 H 3-4 ER 4-5 BB type start with 4-6 Ks.
    Aggression with prospects is fine, but being stupid is not. There should be a way to find a happy medium between a Pirates like idea of being overly cautious with prospects and going stupidly fast with prospects.

    Newk and Folty are 11th and 17th respectively in the NL in fWAR.

    Also 10 of the top 17 pitchers in the NL in fWAR are in the East

    Pretty impressive for newcomb in particularly considering he only has 28 career starts. Bb rate at 4.10... if it gets in the 3s, watch out

    Taking the top 3 pitchers from each nl team is 45 pitchers. Newcomb being 11th is impressive
