BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2006 It`s hard to say how much of Rueter`s collapse was due to all his nagging injuries, how much was just Father Time, and how much was Uncle You Can`t Fool So Few Batters and Live. As is, few pitchers have won so many games (130 so far) with so little stuff. The Giants tried to be polite about showing him the door, but egos were bruised on both sides. If no one gives him a small deal as a fifth starter next year, you`ve got to hope that everyone can make nice for a Poor Kirk Rueter Day at SBC.
2005 Owns one of the more underrated bad contracts in the game today, with $6 million more due in '05 as he closes out his two-year deal. Rueter is barely above replacement level at this stage, and the Giants have enough good, young arms that they don't need to get by with his meager contributions any longer. If he makes it through the whole year in the rotation, he'll have done it on managerial stubbornness, not for on-field results.
2003 We’re sure to read a handful of stories this year about Rueter reuniting with his former manager Felipe Alou. Looking at the numbers doesn’t show a big difference in Rueter’s pitching between Alou and Baker. Park-adjusted, he allowed runs at a rate 3% better than league average under Alou, and 1% worse than average under Baker. And that’s not surprising. No manager is going to teach Rueter to throw 95. You just sit back, watch him move his junk around, and hope he keeps it in the strike zone. He’s the kind of pitcher that will collapse suddenly and without warning some year.
2002 ...who couldn't break a champagne bottle on the hull of a ship. Rueter has maintained a rotation spot for five years without ever striking out more than 115 batters. Rueter is effective from the stretch, completely shutting down the running game (three steals in 12 attempts) and the batters (OPS 140 points lower with runners on base).
2001 Tom Glavine Lite. Kirk Rueter has no velocity and doesn't strike anybody out; he just nibbles hitters to death. Rueter can throw on the outer three to six inches of the strike zone all day long and seldom gives in and throws a batting-practice fastball on a hitters' count. He's not a good bet for long-term success, but he knows how to pitch, fields his position well, can take the mound every fifth day, and is capable of throwing 180 generic innings. Damn few teams don't need a guy like that. In Pac Bell Park, his numbers will look pretty darn reasonable.
2000 The luckiest man in a Giants uniform. To look at the adjusted records above for 1998 and 1999, you'd think Rueter was a #5 starter at best, perhaps a journeyman. His actual record during that time is 31-19, thanks to stupendous run support. Rueter’s real-life records are a joke; he is not a very good pitcher. Over the past two years his ERA has jumped from 3.45 to 5.41, a much better reflection of his contribution to the Giants. If they were smart, they'd trade Rueter and his 70-39 career record for a good pitcher. Unfortunately, the Giants think Rueter is a good pitcher.
1999 He's been lucky in the W-L department for two straight years; it's unlikely to continue. His numbers were a little worse across the board last season, despite the 16-9 record. He had the highest run support per 9 innings in the NL by more than a run over the next guy. Top candidate for a disappointing 1999.
1998 He gives up more than a hit an inning and he doesn’t strike many guys out, but he now has a career winning percentage of .661 because he doesn’t walk many and he gets ground balls, double plays and good run support. This worked for Tommy John, and I suppose it could continue to work for Kirk Rueter. You have to realize the odds are against pitchers like this. Signed for three years at just under $3 million per year.
1997 The Anti-Anthony Young. Younger than most people think, but pitches like an old man. Will probably be out of baseball before he’s 30. Not a good bet to maintain long-term success, but a better bet than any show that currently contains Ted Danson.
1996  Rueter had a stunning debut in 1993 but hardly struck out anyone, so not surprisingly, he's seen his career take a few steps backward. He seems to have arrested his decline, however, and he has pinpoint control, so he's as likely as anyone to turn into Butch Henry this year. 150 innings with a 3.40 ERA would not be surprising.

2010-01-06 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay, who are the pitchers coming onto the ballot next year? I've heard that there's going to be a wave which will cut into Blyleven's vote count. Is that true?
