Peavy

I'm certainly not saying he's not a good (or great) pitcher and that I'm not a fan. I own him in a couple of leagues and was contemplating trying to pick him up in my main money league. From the responses I've gotten it sounds like the main thought is that he is just a young pitcher who's prone to getting knocked around from time to time, like any young pitcher, and that this recent stretch is nothing more than a bump in the road...

He gives me a mild Josh Beckett like feeling. I Just don't like guys who don't pitch 200 innings a year. Yes he hasn't had many opportunities to but I'm paranoid about things like that. I was going to get him for my B. Roberts but took Sheets instead.

Yeah I have to some work to do over the next couple months to drop my ERA and WHIP. I've got RJ, Sheets, Harden, Bedard, Patterson, and Bonderman, and I'm trying to land someone else to help. Basically wondering if Peavy was worth a look or not...

Your staff sounds pretty good to me...Bonderman, Harden, Sheets are all studs. Bedard is solid too, and lets not forget RJ. That staff is one big K machine.....Id be happy if i were you.

He has had two serious illnesses this year. One that made him miss a week and another(strep) that he pitched through and pitched poorly. The only time I can think of that he has pitched poorly without some type of virus running through him was his last start against the Mets. I haven't looked but if he pitches out west against the D-backs, Dodgers, and Giants and takes Vitamin C all year he's going to put on a show. Mark my words.

I'd rather have Oswalt right now than Peavy.

Why the hell would ANYONE trade Oswalt for Peavy?

Pretty sure that was sarcasm.

Big Pimpin wrote: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.


He was sick with a virus and then strept throat. Against the Mets was his second legitimate bad start of the season without being sick.

And if a 1.05 WHIP and 135 K are average from a pitcher who missed a start then you are in a three player league max.

Maybe he's not crashing like Dontrelle, but he still hasn't pitched up to expectations the last two months.


Sure, he's given up some runs recently, but as you mentioned the Ks are there, and the walks are still down. More than anything, I'd put it down to a stretch of bad luck in recent starts (which I'm sure you'd agree can happen to anyone). I'd give him a fairly comfortable edge over Oswalt for the rest of the season to be honest.
