Blaine Knight
« on: May 18, 2018, 08:31:20 am »

How about a thread honoring his undefeated season as a Friday night starter for the Hogs?  How is he not the SEC pitcher of the year?

I'm not sure that he has been the best pitcher in the SEC on his own team. 

I think the award should go to Brady Singer.

What Blaine has done is pretty amazing. He's done something no one else has done this year, even while going against the opponents best. He is a full grown Boar on the mound. There will be some he's beaten this year who will go higher in the draft, but he has earned money this year for sure.

Don't get me wrong, Knight has been excellent this year. He has kept us in every game we played with him on the mound; however, it takes offense to beat another teams pitcher at the end of the day. With the exception of Mize, our O gave us a lot of run production against the best.

Knight has won his fair share of pitching duels.  Last night was a perfect example of an offense winning the game for the pitcher though.  When BK threw his last pitch, we were down by 2.  He still wins because of the big inning following his last pitch.

Either way, incredible year for BK.  10-0 being a Friday night SEC starter is no easy feat.  Job very well done.

Did he get the win, or did he get a no decision? He left the game at the END of the 6th (?) down 2 (?). Either way he recorded no losses on his league record.

He gets the win because we were leading when he officially left the game.

I'm not saying you are wrong, I just honestly don't remember one other than Mize where our offense didn't produce to give him a decent cushion. I'll hang up and listen.

Say what you will about him he gives the team a chance to win every game.  Last night he only gave up 2 earned runs.  So I would say the offense bailed the defense out more than Knight.

based on just sec games, knight should be pitcher of the year. he will not be, it will go to the highest profile guy, who will be drafted high.

Ok, didn’t realize that. Assumed since he threw no pitches after taking the lead in the top half of the inning that it would be a no decision, and if we had been the home team and took the lead in the bottom half of his last completed inning he would have gotten the win.

Yes the bats won him the game last night but certain pitchers give confidence to a team.  Knight is one of those guys.  When he is on the mound this team plays with a great deal of confidence.

Last night if you don't have the 3 errors the score might have been completely different.  Errors can mess with a pitchers head but he weathered the storm.  He is a great pitcher but also a great leader.

There is a certain amount of truth to this, but I think other than the win/loss column, Mize and singer have some better numbers the last I saw, so can't really complain IMO.

Nope, I was wrong.  I was thinking the Florida game with Singer was a low scoring game but we ended up with 6. 

Now, the South Carolina game (We lost but Knight didn't)...he left with a 2-1 lead and we lost 3-2.

Dont get me wrong, Blaine has been great for us and has gotten us off to a great start every weekend, but pitcher of the year in the SEC in my opinion might go to the Auburn stud Maze. Hes a stud, and has better numbers then starsburg did pitching at SD State, and Maze is doing it in the SEC. He will no doubt be the number 1 pick

I know one of them is Murphy.

Blaine will be first-team All-SEC behind Mize and Singer.

The man-love for them is too strong and as always the POY picks are inordinately affected by projected draft position.

But I like to include additional stats like WHIP, Innings / Appearance, and defensive-adjusted stats to determine the best ace in the SEC.  It really makes a difference who is fielding behind you.

Should include extra base hits and batting average with RISP and lets take a deeper look.  I think it would really get interesting.  Also could include home runs with runners on base.

I agree - but I also prefer to look at SEC only stats.  Otherwise, it over inflates the stats of players who played a week non conference.

For example, in conference only -

C: 2.32 ERA  168 BAA  67 Ks
B: 2.97 ERA  202 BAA  86 Ks

That is a lot closer and based only on those stats, I am leaning towards C > B instead of the full year stats

Does anyone have info on how/if Knight has bettered his draft position?

I mentioned it in the draft thread.

This is what I've heard. The cards like kowar at 19. But if they can't get him, they like BK but not enough to take him that early. Some say they may try to get him with the 43rd pick.

The Astros and the Indians have also been showing interest.

He is at best a late first rounder and at worst a mid second rounder.

As i said earlier Mize and Singer got love early on but last week or the week before, Peterson started rattling off the stats and then it was evident they were deserving of the love. BK is right behind the 2 best pitchers in the country so not too bad.
