Kyle Farnsworth, Starting Pitcher? Jesus I hope so.

So there's this site called Fangraphs that exists. This Dave Cameron fella wrote this about Farnsworth being in the mix for the fifth starter spot. THIS STORY ONLY ENDS ONE WAY

Crede Goes Nuts

by Dave Cameron - June 8, 2008 Joe Crede is (insert your own hypberole here). Since last Wednesday, he’s had the following games: June 4th, vs KC: 2 for 3, 1 2B, 1 HR, 2 BB, .326 WPA June 6th, vs MIN: 4 for 4, 2 HR, .194 WPA June 7th, vs MIN: 2 for 4, 2 HR, .120 WPA June 8th, vs Min: 2 for 4, 1 2B, .018 WPA He’s reached base 12 times in 17 trips to the plate (.705 OBP) and has seven extra base hits (1.800 SLG) since Wednesday. Five days ago, he was slugging .465, but after this stretch, he’s raised that mark 100 points. In four games. In June. All winter, the White Sox did what they could to trade Crede. With Josh Fields around, Crede coming off a disastrous 2007 season, and heading into his free agent season, he didn’t seem to fit in Chicago’s plans, but they couldn’t find anyone willing to give much up for Crede, so they kept him around. That’s turned out to be a season saving decision, as he and Carlos Quentin have saved the White Sox offense amid struggles from Nick Swisher, Paul Konerko, and Jim Thome. Ozzie Guillen might not be very happy with his offense’s consistency, but Joe Crede certainly isn’t going to be the reason the hitting coach gets fired.

Steal Of The Winter

by Dave Cameron - May 26, 2008 The Diamondbacks have one of the best outfields in baseball, with Eric Byrnes, Chris Young, and Justin Upton providing both offense and defense for the team that looks like the National League’s best. In order to make room for Upton, however, they shipped off Carlos Quentin, and he’s quickly making them regret that decision. After another huge night, where he was the White Sox offense against John Lackey, Quentin continues to solidify his position as the best hitter in the American League so far in 2008. His .301/.415/.608 line gives him the league’s highest WPA/LI, and his 14 home runs also lead the junior circuit while matching his career total coming into the ‘08 season. When you can double your career home run total in 166 at-bats, you’ve either had an amazing year or a pretty lousy career to that point, or more probably, both. ...

Contreras 2.0

by Dave Cameron - May 23, 2008 There’s a good chance that Jose Contreras is currently 64 years old. I wouldn’t be surprised to learn that his grandchildren were throwing 94 and learning a split finger. If you need some ammunition for baseball related comedy, you can’t go wrong with making fun of Jose Contreras’ age. But, however old he is (and his listed age of 37 seems about as likely as 16), we should notice that he is reinventing himself to extend his career. ...
