Kevin Millwood

Postby Dusk2k2 » Sat Apr 16, 2005 2:53 pm

Can anyone give me some info on him. He's having a solid outing as I write this, and opened the season with two very good outings. What's the deal? Did he learn a new pitch, or do AL hitters just not know him well enough? Any info anyone can give me would be greatly appreciated.


Would you drop Noah Lowry for Kevin Millwood?

Millwood is a quality pitcher. Great for the back end of your rotation. I never figured out why Lowry was hyped so much.

He just gave up a 3-run HR.

Try again.

They should have pulled Millwood in the 8th. He looked veryl good through 5 innings today, but then started to lose command of his offspeed stuff. By the time it got to the 8th I think Wedge was letting him go out there to see if the tribe could try to squeak a couple runs across to get Millwood a win. Bad move though, his velocity was down and he wasn't hittin his spots very well.

Two days ago neither one of those gopher balls leaves the yard. It's finally warmed up and the ball was carrying well today.

Agreed 100 percent. He pitched a great 6 or 7 innings but was already over 100 pitches when he came back out in the 8th. He had nothing and it showed.

But they didn't and he put up the usual Millwood type numbers. Millwood is at best a bottomof thefantasy rotation SP who is capable of imploding on any given night.

Second straight game where Millwood was doing well until late. Keeping him on a tighter pitch count may be a good idea.

I do like the improved K rate in this game though. Looks more like the Millwood I know.
