schmidt: is he back?

Postby stumpak » Wed Aug 03, 2005 1:56 pm

I just wanted to get opinions on Schmidt since I have not been following him to closely and it looks like he is back on track over the past 6 weeks.

Is it safe to consider him back to form? What do people project for next year--closer to '05 or '04?

He has given up 3 or more runs in 5 of the last 7 starts. He has only won one game in the last month and his era is 3.18 over the last month. He is pitching much better, but not back to his old form yet.

I agree. I don't know what to make of him.

I don't understand how you can be so dominant one year and the next year, your not your self. Unless he is hiding a injury or something...

This happens a lot actually especially as pitchers get older. It can happen pretty quickly too.

I'd like to think he's back. Kinda funny though...the only team that I still have him on I got him as a FA. I'm expecting him to be my #4 SP behind Peavy, RJ and Prior. It tempers my expectations versus someone that drafted him in the 2nd round. Heck, I may be able to have him be my #5 guy if Felix Hernandez pans out. :D

You are right. Last year he was around 97 and this year he's down to about 92-94. His velocity is down a little, but this can't explain everything. I think his problem has been his control. He allows way too many baserunners. The league is only hitting .258 off of him and he's only given up 12 homers, but he's walked 58. That's way too many BB. If you look at his recent starts you realize that his walks are way down, so that is a great sign....I think he's ready for a pretty nice stretch coming up. He's still striking people out at will.
