Saarloos - Sure Fire Starter or 5th Wheel?

Postby Darkie Satchels » Mon Aug 01, 2005 1:37 am

Kid looked sick out there against D town. Complete game with 7 K's and he had it under control the entire way until the 9th....

...what say you on this young buck? Any value there?

He actually only struck out 2 guys. :-/

I think he is what he is in the A's rotation. A 5th starter that is performing better than expected. Doesn't have overpowering stuff but you can count on to go 5 or 6 innings and give up 3 or 4 runs. Spot starter AT BEST in a 10team mixed league IMO.

Yeah, I agree with RynMan. He's probably not going to do much for you in terms of fantasy leagues, but in real life he's a decent 5th starter/innings eater for the A's.
