Mike Hampton Statistics – Baseball-Reference.com

Just taking a look… Mike was a genuinely outstanding pitcher from 1998 to mid-2001, an ordinary pitcher most of the rest of his career. (Remember, the Astrodome was a terrific pitcher’s park.) On the other hand, he was a kid, and a kid who can pitch ordinary baseball in the major leagues is nothing to sneeze at. If he returns to his 1998-2000 level, the Braves got a huge steal.
