Does Pitching In The California League Benefit A Starting Pitcher's Development?

In one respect, it might. Click the SBNation Minor League Ball link above to see preliminary data from a study that looks at how minor league starters' walk and strikeout rates change in going from Low A to High A to AA and how the leagues they pass through influence those changes.

I think for a large part – and the fans don't want to hear this – a lot of the people that attend sports in this town, they're there because it's kind of just a place to be seen. I didn't know anybody who went to Rangers games, and then when they started winning and going to World Series, everybody's wearing Rangers hats and saying, 'Oh yeah, I'm a big Rangers fan.'

But Dipoto doesn't see the Angels' bullpen problems as something that can be solved simply by spending more. "While starting pitchers have track records and you have a pretty good idea of what you're going to get out of position players in terms of production, in the bullpen — that is akin to going to Las Vegas and throwing it all down on double-zero green," Dipoto said. "There's smart and there's stupid. That definitely leans toward the latter."
