rotowire implies that vazquez is looking better and will be a solid pitcher.... im still not sold on vaz... i have him and he killed my era... though he had a nice k total, he just doesnt seem like him 2003 self...

so u think rotowire sees someting.. or their just putting words into our minds?

I watched his last implosion and between getting rocked he looked great. He reminds me of Jeff Weaver with more stuff. Like Weaver, he has to keep the ball down or he gets pounded. I think he'll rebound and be a decent bottom tier starter.

i saw the same thing. he got hit in the first inning. he got unlucky in the 2nd inning. then he cruised for a while. he looked tired out and they started to hit him again. i think he is turning the corner.

It's a small sample but his DIPS ERA is ~3.65 and his actual ERA is 15.43.

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

I'd definately go after him. His value will never be lower than it is right now, and he actually pitched pretty good last time out.

I agree with Jackal to a point....IF your team can handle the poor era and whip if he blows up, then he could be a good buy low pitcher. However, if you are counting on him coming to your team and reverting to his Expos stats...not gonna happen.

I'm not 100% sold on him yet, but I own him and am cautiously optimistic that he can turn it around.
