Is Glavine now a Spot Starter or still a Constant?

Postby d18Mike » Mon Apr 18, 2005 12:53 pm

Asked a question in another Forum about possibly dumping Glavine to pick up Wade Miller.... beyond that, wondering what other folks are thinking about Glavine this year.

Is he a 3rd or 4th quality starter, or someone you pick up from the wire based on match-ups?

I think he is a 5th SP at best. I would start him given a favorable matchup but that is about it.

I view him as a pitcher that won't hurt you, too much.

Well considering that Glavine doesn't really help in the K department he's nothing more than an inning eater in 5x5. So I think Glavine is always a sport starter at best and that's when he's going well. Right now he has control issues so I'd bench him until he starts to get it together.
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

Tom Glavine hasnt been a constant start since he left Atlanta. I wouldnt even own him this year. He is pitching utterly pathetic. Any pitcher that doesnt have at least a 2 to 1 strikeout to walk ratio shouldnt be owned and Glavine doesnt even have more strikeouts than walks so far this year (10 BB 9K). His skills have been on a rapid decline and he is no longer in Atlanta where there are several factors that make average pitchers defy saber metrics and appear to be good. Drop him now before your ever tempted to start him again.
