Peavy

Postby Big Pimpin » Tue Jul 26, 2005 3:25 pm

After a few starts where he's been roughed up, what are your thoughts on him for the rest of the year? Does he turn it around and start pitching like he was early in the year? Has he just hit a wall?

Seems like every other start or so over the past couple months he's given up at least 5 ERs. Is he a good buy-low candidate?

If by buy-low you mean offer a guy like Carlos Lee or Ichiro, sure.

In June and July he's 3-4 with a 5.10 ERA. Sure, K numbers are still there, and sometimes he's dazzling, but other times he gets lit up. He never had a stretch like this last year. Maybe he's not crashing like Dontrelle, but he still hasn't pitched up to expectations the last two months.

his recent starts follow the same pattern as ervin santana's. interesting. i have peavy...have been offered m-cab and z-duke for him and burrell.

my decline of the trade speaks toward my perception of peavy's high value, despite his up-n-downs.

yeah, yes...

So he's had a rocky month? Which pitcher in their career hasn't? I don't think you'll be able to "buy-low" on him at all. I know I won't deal him unless I'm overwhelmed by a deal.

He's had a rocky half of the season up to this point. That's all I'm saying. Great in April and May, not so great in June and July.

At least Oswalt has a track record... Maybe I just don't understand why everyone is so ga-ga over Peavy. He's had one good season plus a couple of good months this year. He's already given up as many HRs this year as he did last year.

Sure, he's only 24 and a great pitcher to have in a keeper, I won't argue that. But what makes him so valuable in a one year league? He's been nothing more than an average pitcher for the last two months.

I haven't been able to find many 'average pitchers' that can give me a 3.42era, 1.05whip and 1.1k/ip while making almost every start. And that's figuring in some games where he got KILLED.

I took Peavy in the 6th round and he's been my best pitcher all year long...vastly outperforming RJ (who I took with the 12th pick overall) and Schmidt (who I actually managed to pick up as a FA in one league and drafted with the 18th pick overall in another).

He may have had a few bumps in the road but Peavy is for real. Just don't count on him for a lot of wins...the Padres offense hasn't been pretty lately.

Peavy is a great competitor and has dazzling "stuff". However, I think he tires himself out early on in games. He rarely pitches deep into the later innings.

Sometimes it looks like Peavy is tired even in the 2-3rd inning. He complained earlier in the year of "dead arm" so its a little bit of a concern. All of this being said, when Peavy is healthy and rested, he is almost unhittable(see the dodger game).

I traded him in one of my leagues just before his latest 7 run implosion. I don't expect him to pitch like that the entire second half, but don't be suprised if you see outings like that from him every once in a while....But also know that somedays you'll get a start like this 8 IP, 0 ER, 13 SO
