His xERA was 4.96. 21st percentile in baseball. xBA was in the 15th percentile. I guess its not really saying anything to say a guy is a serviceable 5th SP but thats as far as it goes with Kremer.
He was good enough to make 32 starts on a 101 win team.
Part of the reason they won 101 games, is that he was able to make 32 starts, and give you 172.2 competitive innings.
If you are grading him vs. front-end starters, he doesn't hold up.
If you are grading him vs. other 4th and 5th starters league wide, he's an asset.
If you can do better than him, that's great.
I'd like to obtain one front end starter, and knock people down a spot... but if you went into the year with Kremer, Wells, Irvin holding 2 of the last 3 rotation spots; that's better than most.
