Maybe Silva will get hit in the eye socket with a baseball. The force of the ball entering his socket would be so great that the ball would be forever fused with his skull, thus he would forever have a baseball instead of an eye. Then we could make fun of his mom.

The Worst:
Carlos Silva 90%
Ismael Valdez 88.9%
Jimmy Gobble 88.7%
Kirk Rueter 88.6%
Aaron Sele 87.9%

Speaking of poor contracts … here’s the scary thing: Silva not only tops this contact rate in 2005, but he does even worse at missing bats in 2009. Yeah, Silva at his best gets groundballs and avoids walks – and yes, that is a successful formula – but at the same time, Silva posted xFIP of 3.94, 4.81, and 4.57 before signing his four-year, $48M poison pill that the Cubs swallowed. Nick Blackburn can only hope Bill Bavasi is a general manager when he reaches free agency.

I'd like to see one of those faggstats that can show how good Silva will be once Rothschild fixes him! He's like a swarthy Latino Glendon Rusch!

I read that post and I don't really understand what they're trying to say or show with the percentages.  Best and worst what?  Is there some other post that explains what they're trying to say?

I thought you statfags were all in agreement.

I think he's more of the appendix of Desipio.  Yeah, it's here and you're vaguely aware of it, but only if reminded.  The only time anyone notices it is when it ruptures (on Weebs in the video game thread).  Beyond that, though, it's basically useless and offers no redeeming value.

It is? Well, I guess I'll have to pop Oleg in the back of the head when he starts making out with some chick this Friday.

Anyway, they've been doing a little series on the contact percentages over the years. They started in 02 and have made their way through 04. I just found it funny how much Silva got pounded (by making no one miss at his pitches) and yet Seattle signed him to his 4/48 contract after this season.

If Rothschild does manage to fix him, I would think that'd be grounds for the Cubs to retain him for quite some time, and hell, even retire his number. A guy who doesn't know what K is besides his bra size being a viable asset on a strikeout staff? That would be something.

Contact Percentage (Contact) – The percentage of times a batter hits the ball when he swings the bat.

In this case, the contact % for batters faced.  Obviously lower % is better, but you can't really look at it
in a vacuum because there's a balance w/ throwing strikes, how good of contact batters make, and what
not.  In general, if you contact % is approaching the same as a home run derby pitcher, it's a bad sign.

God damnit!  I read that as contract percentage!  I had no idea what they were talking about.  Now, it all makes sense and the world is whole again.

I'm a fucking dope.

The only stat involving Carlos Silva that I anybody should find encouraging would be 0 innings pitched.
