If you're a Met fan and you like projections than prepare yourself for a whole lot of Tim Redding. ESPN projects Tim Redding to win 35 games while striking out 427 batters making him the greatest fantasy pitcher of all time. Unfortunately those numbers come with a price, namely 42 losses, a WHIP of 1.91 and an ERA of 6.30.
If you Redding continues his K rate of 2008 (around 2/3 per inning) than the projections say he's going to throw somewhere around 630 innings. That's a lot of Tim Redding.
