Games worth watching this weekend

Postby Arlo » Sat Apr 06, 2002 3:47 am

Lots of interesting games this weekend:

SATURDAY:
Josh Beckett takes the mound for the first time this year. He'll be special; the only question seems to be when.
carlos Hernandez and Kaz Ishii also make their debuts.
Nick Neugebauer takes on the Big Unit. This game could show us a lot about how much Neugebauer has recovered.
Scott Erickson takes on the Red Sox. One more good start and he'll disappear from many free agent lists, if he hasn't already.
Orlando Hernandez starts against the quick-starting Rays. Could be a good matchup to get El Duque on track.
Sleeper game: This one won't get any attention, but I'm actually pretty curious about the Josh Fogg - Matt Clement matchup.

SUNDAY:
A completely different focus from the Saturday games, but no less interesting: Pedro, the Rocket and Kevin Brown all try to bounce back from atrocious outings. Oh yeah: and Mike Hampton too...
Sleeper: Livan Hernandez gets the nod for SF. I still don't trust him to be a consistent fantasy force, but we'll see what happens...

Hey Arlo, You forgot about my boy Schilling. With him and Johnson facing the Brewers the over/under for combined strikeouts should be about 25.

Josh Fogg looked great...but with his hard thrown sinker he is gonna let up lots of homeruns, but also gonna strike out alot of batters

I love Schilling - the only reason I left his start off is that, while it'll be fun to watch, there aren't as many fantasy question marks as in some of the other games. Should still be a great game, though.

Good point about Fogg's sinker. Something to keep an eye on.
