Chacon love?

Postby davus » Mon Aug 22, 2005 11:50 am

I just picked this mug up. He is on fire since coming to the Yanks and they have a sweet looking schedule for the final 6 weeks. I'm hoping he can pick me up another 5 wins....the guy can flat out pitch!

I was certainly wrong about him. I did not like the move to get him in NY at first, but you can't argue with results. He's been great and hopefully he can keep it up over the stretch run...

all he needed was to get out of Coors and that horrible Rockies team ;-D At first I didnt like the trade, but with the way he has been pitching there is nothing to complain about

I'm not a believer just yet. Over his career, his road stats are pretty bad as well as his Coors stats. Maybe he's just putting it all together this year or maybe just having a lucky season, who knows.

Nice. ;-D

Chacon certainly has the stuff to succeed, hot streak or otherwise. I personally wonder if getting out of Coors has boosted his confidence, which is leading to his improved performance. He no longer has to worry about broken-bat gopherballs. :-D

He was still pitching for the Rockies. The Coors effect extends beyond simply the park factor. It affects a pitcher's confidence and his ability to pitch effectively. Good Lord. I'm starting to sound like one of those rabid Jeter fans.

In all seriousness, though, I don't think it's quite so simple as extracting a pitcher's away stats from his overall numbers when his home park is Coors. The place ruins pitchers, period. Pitchers are not the same pitching for the Rockies.

I couldn't agree more. I don't have Chacon but I've seen enough ex Rockies pitchers to say that he will continue to be an above average pitcher.
