It looks like more have exited the park. I should have taken note of what the exit velocity was when I posted earlier. Today it's 94.77.

Now sporting a 7.09 ERA.  Yikes!

Could "the trade" look any worse?

Not to pile on or anything, the average exit velocity of Shelby's 4-seamer is alarming. It's a wonder more haven't exited the park.

Remember how many were labeling the Miller for Blair/Swanson/Inciarte deal one of the worst they've ever seen?

Miller is doing his best to not disprove them.

A 1 to 1 K/BB ratio after 5 starts.  Wow.

I guess you could call this a buying opportunity.  But then, so are coal futures and ad space on the Rush Limbaugh show.

$12 in CBS, $9 in LABR.

Isn't the poor guy owed some wins?

While it's five degrees outside here in the Northeast, it seemed fitting to quote extensively from Tyler Kepner's piece in the Time this morning.

The best part of spring training, which opens for most teams by the end of this week, is the optimism. Every team’s best-case scenario is still in play. Whatever jersey a player wears, he can slip it on with pride and channel his inner Lloyd Christmas, the naïve dreamer from “Dumb and Dumber.”

A million-to-one shot? So you’re telling me there’s a chance!

Get ready for seven weeks of rosy forecasts around the major leagues. Every injury is healing well. Every prospect is the Next Big Thing. Every fading hitter has solved that pesky flaw in his swing. Maybe it will happen. Even if a front office has not designed a team to win, the players can always hope.

But remember this: For all that changes behind the scenes, every game still has a loser. It remains impossible for 30 teams to win at least 85 games and contend for a wild-card spot. Math is such a killjoy.

So as pitchers and catchers report to Florida and Arizona, here is the column nobody wants to read: a doomsday scenario, just below the cheery surface, that could thwart each team’s high hopes.

ARIZONA DIAMONDBACKS Yet again, a team follows a winter of sizzle with a summer of fizzle. Zack Greinke’s record $34.4 million annual salary proves to be a drastic overpay as he begins to decline at age 32. Attendance continues to stagnate as the prospects traded for Shelby Miller and Jean Segura thrive elsewhere.

Should I keep going?

Avoided arbitration with a one-year deal for $4.35 million. The D'backs didn't think the arbiter would be fooled by Shelby's won-lost record.

The Bill James plexiglass principal and/or the D'back's defense, not to mention offense, could turn that record totally around.
