Ten MLB Pitchers Who Should Decline Over the Rest of 2009

This is Part Four of a series discussing MLB players whose performance in the early part of the season was extreme, to the good or bad, and explaining why their performances won't last.

Here, pitchers who have achieved more favorable results than expected are highlighted, with the usual statistical analysis of my claims.

This is not to say you should bail on these pitchers. Many of them are supremely talented hurlers who will still put up great season numbers.

The point here is that they should expect their success to fade somewhat, as statistical anomalies the pitchers cannot control come back to averages.

Please check out Parts One, Two, and Three.

Let me know whether you agree or disagree, and thanks for reading.
