Buy low pitchers?

Postby Armed and Hammered » Fri Jun 24, 2005 3:00 pm

Anyone have any thoughts. Always looking to take a chance on someone with bad numbers hoping to find the turnaround.

Anyone have any thoughts?

Wood, Prior, Sheets, O Perez are the obvious choices, but are there any middle of the road guys that might have a big 2nd half? Mainly lookin at NL only.

Odalis Perez. He's almost back from his shoulder injury and should put up numbers like last year except with more wins.

mulder
peavy
burnett
and i say this with some qualifications, so don't jump out of your pants: santana.

my qualifications: we know he's a badass, but his numbers so far are just, well, good. not great. he tore up the second half last year, and i think he's poised to do it again. you might be able to get him for 2nd or 3rd round talent--which would be a deal.

just my .02

yeah, yes...

I actually think Pavano is a great pick up, especially to be played on the road. Some aren't buying into his amazing home/road splits, but he has pitched quite well away from Yankee Stadium. I think he can be had for next to nothing right now and would be a very low risk acquisition that could pay decent dividends if his splits continue.

Lilly's still on my waivers... Think he's worth grabbing after his last two games?

And what makes you think Pineiro will turn it around?

some middle of the road guys you might be able to get under-value are lowe, arroyo, zito and maddux. lowe's been pitching well, but not getting the wins, arroyo had a terrible stretch but is turning it around based on his last few starts, the question with him is if he'll keep a spot when schilling comes back. if he continues to pitch like he has im sure wakefield will lose it instead of arroyo. zito's been good as of recent and with the A's heating up he could start getting some wins. maddux is the definition of conistent and although he struggled early, he's won 3 of his last 4 and his pitched solidly.

I agree about Odalis Perez and Mulder. ;-D Oliver Perez has been way too streaky this year, and I'd avoid him unless you get a ridiculous deal if it was me.

Check out Runelvys Hernadez......3-1, 1.80 ERA and 1.04 WHIP in June. He was a horse before injuring his arm in 2002.

Both have been pitching well lately and both are guys with good track records of being productive MLB pitchers. They aren't old or over-the-hill, either. I don't expect them to be studs. But I do think they can be productive and help you.
