SF locals, How good is Lowry?

Postby chrispistol3 » Sun Mar 13, 2005 10:31 am

Good numbers last season, good spring thus far. This guy wasn't drafted, should I be picking him up? How good is this guy?

He should be pretty good this year. Alou is very high on him.

He'll net you around 13 wins, with an ERA between 3.50 and 3.75 and I'd say over 150 K's.

I'd have to see your current pitchers before I can advise you whether or not to pick him up.

Ditto, I'd dump Hernandez simply because it's unlikely he'll stay healthy throughout the year.

I would agree. He's got decent command of all his pitches but his change-up is unbelievable. Seems to have great poise from the 4-5 starts I saw.

I'd drop Wright, I think. Hernandez is a sleeper, this year, IMO. He was the Yanks' top pitcher (in VORP) last year, IIRC, despite the fact that he wasn't in the rotation for the full year. I guess it's a question of how much you think Guillen will work him. If he's not allowed over 90-95 pitches, he'll be a good pitcher.

El Duque will probably have 3-4 wins less than Wright, but a much better ERA and WHIP, and about the same amount of Ks.

Id drop Pettitte for him pretty quickly - then again, Id advise anyone to drop Pettitte for a bag of peanuts unless they are trying to give the rest of the league a handicap.

Pettitte = negative value :-t

Why I like Lowry....

Postby chrispistol3 » Mon Mar 14, 2005 2:26 pm

SF should win 100 games.

SF defense is fantastic.

Lowry has pinpoint control and over 7K/9inn

He challenges hitters.

His # of pitches/ game is over 90.

Giving up HR at home is rare.
