Time to give J.Vazquez the hook?

Postby MashinSpuds » Tue Jun 21, 2005 11:11 am

Man, has he looked less than stellar these past few games. Still usually giving up one walk or less, and only had one true eye-gouger in the last five games (8 ER vs. Philly), but he's certainly not the Mr. May that helped us all out.

Anyone selling, or sticking with it? I'm gonna have to do the latter, for we know that he's got it in him to put up some good games.

i'm sticking it out, no other choice. certainly can't drop him and won't get much value for him at the moment, but unless you're in an 8-team or lower league there's no way you cut him.

You could do a lot worse than Javy Vazquez. Sure he's been rocky, but he's also had some great games - hell, the previous game was against a very good White Sox team, he gave up 3R in 8 innings, struck out 10 and got the win. As far as the Philly game, you probably should only start your very best in the Philly launchpad this year. Javy is someone worth hanging on to.

I love it. The guy just finished up a 50+ inning streak without a walk and two weeks later someone is posting that he gives up to many walks.

He's fine. Yeah, he's been giving up hits, but it's because he throws a ton of strikes (see also: only 13 walks this year). Except for that 8-run game, he's pitching very well since May.

Actually no, you misread. I stated his one walk or less as a compliment. Notice the two compliments leading into a disparaging remark ('no more Mr. May'). Ok, English lesson over.

I only made this post b/c I miss 1-2 ER Vazquez. I hope we have another May next month...

yeah, he's been pitching well. one problem he seemed to be having last night was he'd give up grounders that would just squeak by the infielders. in the first inning along, he gave up three singles on weakly-hit balls that sliped either just by or just under the gloves of diving fielders. as a vazquez owner, this was most annoying, but at least he's not pitching too poorly.
