So far, with the exception of whip, AA is better almost across the board.  Alaniz spent a little more time in A ball than did Trachsel but AA's numbers are better so far.  Maybe I'm nitpicking a bit.

I think tarot cards are more reliable than minor league stats. A lot of times guys in the minors are working on a third pitch so they are always behind in the count.

Don't forget that much of Trachsel's years were with the Cubbies... a historically mediocre team.  The 1990's, with the exception of a post season appearnce in '98, were just so.... well, Cubby.  7 out of 10 years were below .500.

And the Nationals are a historically ... what kind of team again? :D

By the way, Carr got in a scoreless inning tonight, and I'm an Alaniz optimist all the way.
