Proof that Rotoworld is as clueless as the others...

Postby TheYanks04 » Sun Mar 20, 2005 12:16 pm

From today's "Strike Zone"...a recommendation for the moron Brown...Anyone notice the obvious factual error this clown is making and then basing part of his recommendation on it?

Kevin Brown - Yankees - What’s really changed from last spring, when Brown was regarded by practically everyone as a top-20 starter? His back is no more of a concern than it was then. He’s made it pretty clear that next time his temper leads him into a fight with a wall, he’ll be bright enough to lead with his left. Brown did struggle to come back after breaking his pitching hand last year, but with the way he had to rush his return, that was hardly unexpected. While Brown can’t be counted on to stay healthy, he should be well above average when healthy. A trade to the Braves would have made him an outstanding investment. As is, he’s still worth pursuing.

Brown is a good choice for this year, despite your blinders. He's a good pitcher, and at the time when you can get him, he's a great choice.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

Still not sure I follow your logic. You've proven they're not infallible, are you saying you are? Is your problem that they still recommend him despite his injury history, age, and lack of self control, or that they're not gung-ho enough in their praise of the mighty Yankees as they strive to overcome the embarrassment of last season's unprecedented choke and buy yet another championship?

I have to agree...I think "Rotoworld" is way overratted... Half the time they report information that never occurs, and they contradict themselfs about players all the time.. I feel the reporters don't actually scout players, yet they read other sources on the net, and report in that fashion... You should alway's take anything Rotoworld reports with a grain of salt until you read it, or hear about it from many other sources...

As for this article...Your being awfully petty!!! ;-)

Many other examples you could have given to prove your point in regard to Rotoworld's lack of original, or accurate content... B-)

PS. Many time's they are "Right On" but if you make enough predictions eventually you have to be correct about some of them..numbers game...right? :-?

That and the statement "Brown did struggle to come back after breaking his pitching hand last year, but with the way he had to rush his return, that was hardly unexpected. " is very misleading too. He broke his hand in September and he struggle pretty hard before that. I don't really read RotoTimes that much but this blurb is very amateurish.

I'm all aboard for that thread, I bet we could fill 10 pages just getting started. Honestly I don't read either one. I didn't even know there was a difference. :*)
