BP Annual Player Comments

YearComment
2005 Karp's no world-beater, but don't let the hits allowed fool you: Like other Triple-A pitchers last year, he was victimized by terrible defensive play behind him. If anything, hopefully his rough 2004 season will convince Karp to be more receptive to advice, former #1 draft pick or not. He'll need improved command to contribute at the next level, but perhaps an investment in player instruction now that they're out of Montreal will help.
