Hot Sauce - Current Scoville Rating!

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!

  1. What does he have to do to achieve ghost chili (bhut jolokia) status? :)

  2. That might require something huge. Like a 15+ strikeout performance, on the heels of a shutout.

    A Cy Young award could get him U.S. pepper spray. An MVP award would probably mean pure capsaician!

  3. Nothing like the sauce opener.

    By the way it's never a good idea to get ahead in the standings so early like you and I have. We're bound to come down.
