I've read in a few places that people had high expectations going into this year. Heck, I've had him the past 2 or 3 seasons until this year where I don't have him at all. He's not a fluke, he has the stuff to be really good. Not THIS good probably, but he's still a good pitcher.

Would you not say RFK is a pitchers park?? 335 down the line in right and left and 410 dead center.

Straight out of Baseball Prospectus:

Is Patterson ever going to make progress? He shows you things that make you wonder. In 2004, it was a strikeout an inning, a walk every other inning, about half again as many home runs as you'd like, and then he missed time with a groin injury. Still, he's cheap, armed with good stuff, and might be a few adjustments away from becoming this rotation's #2 guy. PECOTA likes his profile, and we like his curveball; when that thing's really breaking, it's almost hypnotic. Breakout candidate.


PECOTA has him pegged at 15% breakout, 43% improve and 29% collapse.

Seems like they like him a lot.

You've convinced me to do the same. I just hope Patterson keeps this up.

I'm in a delima in one of my leagues. Since you're pretty high on Blanton, who would you rather have? :-? Patterson's still on the wire, but I'm not sure how much longer. :-o

Well... Blanton won't get the K's or W's that Patterson will. I'd go with Patterson probably. Blanton will probably be left on the wire, especially if he has a bad start or two. People aren't very patient with guys like him.

That was my thought process as well. Blanton's nice ratios have helped me get by with some not so good ratio guys for W's and K's though. ;-D

I heard it would be Day...but that was before he had a good start last time out. At this rate, it would be Ohka...

Whatever happens, Patterson won't go to the pen unless Washington is just flat out stupid.

Picked him up and dropped him for Wakefield for the 2nd time as I play the match-ups and try to exploit the crazy IP limit my league has (2000 IP).

Now bury this thread in case anyone from league peeks in and gets wise to him.
