So dude has a WHIP of what, 2.000 and opponent's BA of a. 500? Yeah yeah yeah.. It's one game and just three innings! But this is ducking AAA. Come on, at this point this many years in the majors, I don't expect those numbers at all.. Maybe a decimal point off,. 050 and a WHIP of. 200. And that's not asking a ton in just one game, three IP, and against AAA. That's the most insane part, but his numbers are so bad that in baseball, where a decimal is an insane difference.
This is why it's easy to dislike Lannan and want him off the franchise period. First, he's too erratic.. But to demand a trade after the demotion when you still have games like this, and get paid the amount he gets paid, the ego that displays is staggering. He should be glad the organization didn't release him, as the Nats are the only team that might have put him back up at some point.. Another team he languishes in the minors until he retires. And you can't say that doesn't happen. It has, and it did to Lannan's most recent parallel, John Patterson. Former ace languishes in the minors in another teams organization. . He's lucky he's not in AA, as he was very recently, and sucked, and still got called up only to perform we!!. Maybe the reason he has some success in the majors and none in the the minors in the past few years is because he doesn't even try there, thinking himself too good to be pitching there.. Because he has really, really sucked when demoted lately. But yeah, quite bad numbers and I think with the depth of pitching we now have, it's bye bye Lannan time.
