Willis in the 2nd Half-

Postby Rusnakjd » Sun Jul 10, 2005 7:30 pm

So my team's closers have been ravaged and so I decided to make a move and acquire a SP to go with Rich Harden, Carlos Zambrano and Jake Peavy. The only move I could make was Bobby Abreu for Dontrell Willis, Cliff Floyd and Scott Shields.

Now, I want to know, what do you all think of Willis right now? Primed to fall in the 2nd half of the season, or will he keep it up. Im thinking hw wont be quite as good, but still a top 10 guy. What do you think?

I think Willis is already showing signs of slowing down. And I also think you really did not need the SP help. However, he might be great 2nd half and Zambrano isn't getting you (or me) any W's. But I wouldn't have made that deal.

My OF already has Manny Ramirez and Miguel Cabrera, and my SS is Miguel Tejada. The league I am is is pretty deep, so nobody comes close to my offence even with Abreu gone, so I figured it was an OK risk.

Zambrano has been no help and Peavy should be getting sick again here in about a week, so Willis seemed like a good idea.

Hitters have hit over .300 off of willis for his past 8 or so starts, I think trading abreu straight up for him is a mistake, if you add floyd and floyd somehow keeps this up, then maybe it was worth.
