In desperate need of innings

Postby crapshooter » Thu Sep 08, 2005 2:16 pm

I'm in desperate need of innings to meet my inning requirement since I'm going to finish in the money. Who are some pitchers called up who will get to start the rest of the season? This is straight AL league.

Two Twins: Francisco Liriano and Scott Baker. Either of them still available in your leagues?

No neither of those are available. This is a very deep AL with 14 teams

deep AL, eh?

hmmm...let's see...

juan dominguez - tex
jeff harris - sea
jp howell - kc
kameron loe - tex (starting games now)
daniel cabrera - bal (back from the DL)
john maine - bal
hayden penn - bal (sent down, might be called up again)
brandon mccarthy - cws (might not start)

they are not ranked in any order and might not fit the label "september call up", but they are some names you could have a look at.

Jeff Harris? Eheh. I'll say this as succinctly as I can: he sucks. Nice little feel-good story, but he is just not good, either on paper or in person. He won't get many wins, he won't rack up many strikeouts, and the fact that he cannot throw strikes for the life of him is bad, bad news for his ERA and WHIP. I wouldn't start him in a 50-team league.

If you'd like you could check out my waiver wire starters thread updated daily in the who to start/bench forum. That might be able to help you out because it's almost always guys that are unowned. ;-D

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

If the Bosox can get a comfortable lead I think Pabelbon will get a start and give you a good outing.

SN said Pabelbon will stay in the bullpen.
