Rays vs. Twins GDT: Odorizzi, Ramos -- the Final Audition

Cesar Ramos gets the start; Jake Odorizzi will appear in the bullpen.

It's a night game.

Here's a look at the numbers for these two nerds so far:

Player ERA IP H R ER HR BB SO AVG WHIP FIP
Bedard, E 7.15 11.1 17 9 9 1 5 6 0.347 1.94 4.46
Ramos, C 4.00 9.0 8 4 4 5 0.235 0.89 1.94
Odorizzi, J 2.25 8.0 7 2 2 5 5 0.226 1.50 3.67

I calculated FIP using a 3.048 constant (that's 2013's constant).

At this point, Ramos is the only one who likes like he's had any degree of control. I don't expect he'd do any better than a 110 FIP- (so... *beep bop boop* 4.38 ERA, assuming league offense remains the same). But these other guys just can't seem to find the zone so far.

That said, if it was a half season we needed from the No. 5 guy, I'd say go Odo and just take the medicine.

Side question: Where's Jeff Niemann these days? Is he still out there in the ether?
