Sleeper NL Cy Young

Postby Big Game JLo » Fri Sep 16, 2005 11:54 am

Andy Pettitte

The guy has been absolutely phenomenal! My team has been decimated due to injuries and/or pitchers not living up to their draft positions (My team includes: Curt Schilling, Kerry Wood, Mark Prior AND Roy Halladay). Thank goodness for Mr. Pettitte! ;-D He may catapult me into my world series!

Pettitte is 13-2 with a 1.50 ERA since June 20, the most wins and best ERA in the major leagues during that span. He has now won six consecutive starts and seven of his last eight.

Andy Pettitte is quietly the best pitcher in the MLB since the all-star break!

True but he doesn't have a shot at the Cy. Clemens and Carp still have better numbers.

Yeah, he's been better than Roger in the second half, but I don't think he tops Carpenter.

Still a fine rebound for Pettite this season. Kind of sad how good he's been some years, yet he's never been able to get the trophy.

I think that's what is most amazing. Roger Clemens and Roy Oswalt are considered the best pitchers in Houston. Andy never seems to be mentioned. I'm definitely not saying that in next years draft I will be taking Pettitte over Clemens and Oswalt, but he is sure worthy of a mention with what he's doing this year.

Man I traded Pettitte, Floyd, and Overbay for Huff in mid-May, and thought I swindled the guy. Looks like he got the best of that deal...

I thought Pettitte would rebound this year, and drafted him when a lot of people didn't suspect he'd do much. Definitely a nice season from Andy, but no way will he win a Cy Young, not this year.

still, Pettitte has really stepped it up post ASB. and i guess the kicker is that a 3.09 ERA and a 1.09 WHIP are pretty good, and those were his numbers BEFORE the break!

He doesn't have a shot this year :-/


He's the one guy everyone (NY fans) wished the Yanks could have kept :-/

Glad he's doing well though ;-D

Well, last year Clemens won the Cy, Oswalt won 20 and Pettitte was hurt. Given the hype over the other two, it doesn't surprise me that Andy gets crowded out. If you go by Win Shares, Andy actually is the second-best pitcher in Houston this year, better than Oswalt. But past performance will always color people's perceptions. And I do think Oswalt is better than Pettitte; it just happens that Pettitte is having a better year.

Pettitte has had a very nice year, no doubt.

But, right now, I'm wondering why Willis is getting almost no love for NL Cy consideration. All I read is Carpenter and Clemens, but Willis' numbers are very nice as well. Don't think he'll win, but he should be getting more consideration at this point.

Same reason you don't hear about Pettitte. Clemens and Carp have been better. Dontrelle is still 3rd IMO.
