First, let’s go to the videotape, “Almost a 11 K/9 in the minors is, uh, Mike Minor. He major, Kanye. I hope Roberto Kelly doesn’t come back to visit the Braves because when R. Kelly sees a minor, urine trouble! So should you play some Gary Glitter if you’re lusting after this Minor? In 118 2/3 IP this year, he has 144 Ks and 44 walks. Hello, beautiful. Want me to continue? Of course you do. You’re greedy. In Triple-A through five starts, his ERA is 1.99 while rocking a .171 BAA.” I loved him when he was called up and he rewarded me with a punch to my no-no area. In 40 2/3 IP, a 5.98 ERA and 1.57 WHIP. His FIP was much better, but they don’t count that in my fantasy leagues, so there’s that. It is worth noting that his BABIP was astronomical in his small sample size (hehe, he has a small sample size). So I’d take Minor’s 2010 with the Braves with a grain of salt (to an open wound if you owned him). So what do I think Mike Minor will be like for 2011 fantasy baseball?
Thanks for the segue, Mr. Intro Paragraph. Seamless, I tell ya. His almost 11 K/9 fell to 9.52 K/9. Eh, you’ll take that and rub it all over your body. It’s still fantastic. That’s all I need. See, I’m more of a results guy. Want info on how he gets there? I suggest you read Stephen’s Mike Minor fantasy. Unless the Braves make some last minute offseason SP signing that I don’t see coming, Minor will be in the rotation. Only thing worth noting is the IP jump from 2009 to 2010, but whatever. You’re not taking him in the first 10 rounds. This is an end of the draft flyer, which I would go for. In 2011, I could see Minor putting up 10-8/3.85/1.28/180 in 180 IP. That, friends, is mixed league material and this won’t be the last time you hear me mention his name. Mike Minor. See?
