    Re: 2012 Ivan Nova Performance Thread

    Hard to believe Nova has a 5.69 ERA. He has a K/9 of 9.6 with 3.3 K:BB but has allowed 65 hits in just 49 IP.

    Furthermore, opponents are slugging .609 against him, and he has a BAbip of .393. Whoa.

    Those should correct over time. Just has to keep pitching the way he has been. I think the production against him is a little flukey and skewed right now.

    So I guess you can lump him in with Wang and Cano.

    He's still trying to figure out how to use his much improved breaking stuff and sometime forgets that his best pitch is still his fastball.

    "I told my trainer that at the first opportunity, I wanted to sign with the Yankees," Nova said. "He would tell me that [we] could possibly get more money elsewhere. I told him I didn't care. I wanted to sign with the Yankees."


    ................ like this matters. Ivan my man.

    He has really tight breaks on his breaking balls. I didn't catch the start, but is he still throwing everything in the strike zone?

    Right now he seems to be successful because the Yanks give him enough runs to win. Stop constantly mentioning all the negative stats about his pitching and just enjoy the fact that he hasn't missed a turn in the rotation and will be learning something new everytime he takes the mound. As I said before, he has the ability to be very useful and successful at the major league level......plus the fact that he is young!

    We're fighting to stay alive in the division.

    Atleast he gave some shutdown innings after the 4th, but man he really needs to stop giving up so many XBH's.

    Fall in love with his breaking stuff too much.

    Re: 2012 Ivan Nova Performance Thread

    Remember the forearm problem he had last year? A lot of times loss of control while maintaining velocity is a sign of elbow problems. He's just not close to the pitcher he was last year when going well

    I'm really hoping it's just a young pitcher's maturation problems, not a physical issue

    58 of his 95 pitches were strikes. He seemed to be relying on the breaking ball more than I recall the last few times I saw him pitch. I don't know if he felt he couldn't control the FB or he just used the breaking ball by choice.

    Re: 2012 Ivan Nova Performance Thread

    Maybe he is just afraid to challenge hitters. A guy who touches 97 shouldn't be relying so heavily on breaking balls assuming he can spot his FB.

    I don't think that he has felt comfortable with his fastball all year long. It seems like he is struggling to hit the target when he throws it and it seems to either be off the plate or it comes back over the middle and he gets hit hard.

    He's last in MLB in opponent's slugging percentage and opponents' OPS out of 120 pitchers.

    This was the Nova I love to see. It's these kind of games that really make me feel that if someone really does need to be traded. It's Hughes. (And I really like Hughes) I love Nova though. We have just beaten the Rays without to many hits/run surrendered. That's pretty good!
