Ricky Nolasco, Florida Marlins
2010 Goose Joak Original
by Goose Joak
Wednesday is the first day of Ricky Nolasco, 2010!
Current Status: Hot Nolasco Sauce comes out of Spring Training on fire, with a 21:1 strikeout to walk ratio. Below, I have indicated his current Scoville heat rating. While he has been hot, I cannot rate him higher than a jalapeño at this point. Like a jalapeño, Nolasco was very inconsistent last year. Sometimes on fire, and sometimes underwhelming. I'd like to see him put up one or two good outings before moving into the serrano territory. That said, I think he can do it. I've got him in my keeper league again this year.
Prognosis: Better get the milk and yogurt ready!
