Hey, it's time once again for my annual "Randy Wolf is Still Being Overrated" post. I'd been waiting for him to put forth a really nice effort in anticipation of a glowing thread, and to the surprise of absolutely no one, it has arrived.
This is the part where I toss out Randy Wolf's career numbers, which through this evening are now:
60 wins, 57 losses a 4.14 ERA and a 1.31 WHIP.
He remains what he's always been...a big tease. Always looks like he's capable of big things, and definitely flashes top of the rotation stuff on occasion. But the reality is that Wolf is no more than a middle of the rotation guy, which means that in fantasy ball he should not be better than your fourth starter in a fairly deep league.
I have gotten blasted by Wolf supporters in each of the last two years, and fully expect to be on the receiving end of it again following this post. And once again, I'll submit that we save this post for posterity and check to see who ended up being right.
I am positive that I will end up eating crow for my positive or negative positions on some guys, as we all make our share of mistakes. But I'm more confident about my Wolf stance than about most.
