Wolf at GAB?

Postby Quaker » Sat Jun 14, 2003 2:44 am

What's the call here? Millwood got hammered, is Wolf worth a shot?

Personally I'm going to start Wolf tomrrow against the Reds even though Millwood got lit up. I just don't think the Reds would do it two games in a row *Knock on Wood*. Wolf will somehow manage to pull a 3 era or less with 7 K's. Hopefully I'm not wrong this time.

Opposing pitchers average a 4.46 ERA at the GAB which is about middle of the road. Since Wolf is an above average pitcher, I don't think he'll get lit up. At least not more than usual :p

I have Wolf and I'm starting him tomorrow. I'm also starting Prior at the Skydome, but that's another debate.

Wolf will either post a bad ERA or a bad BB total in that game. Guaranteed.

Check out "Batter vs. Pitcher" on ESPN. The reds he's faced are a combined 15 for 81 with no homeruns and 30 strikeouts.

I'm a little hesitant to start him since Millwood just killed me last night and Cincy is a home run hitting team and Wolf has been giving up a lot of home runs. That been said I think I'm going to start him none the less because I need the wins. I've got great pitchers (Millwood, Wolf, Nomo, Webb, Piniero, Myers) who have been having good starts with low ERAs yet I'm not getting any W's because they all have piss-poor run support. I'm currently in 6th of 10 in wins while 2nd in ERA. So please Wolf get a good start and get the W (and Mesa get the S).

-My prediction in the Reds/Philles game was pretty damn close. Wolf ended up with 1 earned run and 7 k's on the money!!! Just like I said START Garcia against ATL, I said start Wolf against the Reds.

Would anyone else like to challenge the great Sponge? :-)

Well, as I predicted Wolf gave up a homer to the first batter he faced! Fortunately that was the only run he gave up and then proceeded to pitch well, I'm glad I started him. Doesn't quite make up for Millwood but it's a start.
