YearComment
2006 Pitchers don`t talk about a new stance the way hitters do, but Dingman is on record as saying that different positioning on the rubber was responsible for his success. That may be true in the Bull Durham "If you believe you`re playing well because you`re wearing women`s underwear, then you ARE" sense, but a look at the PERA column says there wasn`t anything different about Dingman`s performance in 2005. He did strand 75% of the men who reached base on him last year, as opposed to his 67% average since 2000. But that`s luck, and it`s worth a run of ERA in his case. Respect the streak, but don`t place bets.
2005 It's plenty easy to make fun of millionaires, be they players or owners, who quibble over a hundred thousand here and there. But there are a lot of less-heralded ballplayers for whom a steady major league paycheck over the course of even a season or two could make a huge difference in terms of their financial future; that's why Dingman went to Mexico to pitch at the age of 29. In spite of strikeout rates that have been impressive at times, he doesn't keep the ball down or in the strike zone, so he'll need to look for another employer.
