Maddux

Postby bd3521 » Mon Sep 19, 2005 12:11 pm

Greg Maddux (12-13), trying to win 15 or more games for the
18th consecutive season, will start on normal four days'
rest Thursday at Milwaukee. He will start again Sept. 27 at
home against Pittsburgh and the season finale Oct. 2 at
Houston. No one will likely get skipped but some pitchers
will go on five days rest and Glendon Rusch likely will have
seven days off, Cubs pitching coach Larry Rothschild said.

Maddux will be a two-start pitcher for the final week of the
regular season if he can win Sept. 22 and 27. "He deserves
it," Rothschild said of Maddux. "It's significant in a lot
of ways." If Maddux loses one of those two starts, however,
Rothschild said Maddux might not make the extra start.


Will this give him extra motivation to win these games?
He hasnt been spectacular vs MIL (6 or 7 ERA I beleive).

Back against the wall for the professor. He's always been good to my fantasy teams, and has always seemed like a good guy, so here's hoping he reaches those 15 wins yet again! ;-D

I kept trying to trade for the guy during the 1st half of the season. He really hasn't performed up to expectations still so I'm glad I didn't get him. But it's nice to see a Maddux tradition continue for the 18th time.

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

as a braves fan, i've always been a big supporter of maddux, so here's hoping he reaches 15 yet again! ;-D

here's a question:

who has been the better pitcher over the duration of their career:

Greg Maddux or Roger Clemens?

Maddux wins ERA and WHIP, but Clemens has W, W%, and Ks locked up nice and tight, and he's won more Cy Youngs I believe.

personally i'll take the homer pick and take Maddux (this past seasons have really been unfair to him... ERA near 4 despite WHIP in the 1.10's?), but the arguement for Clemens is pretty strong.

I'd take Clemens. The ERA difference isn't that much when you consider Roger pitched mostly in the AL. Both are sure-fire HOF.

Doubly agreed. ;-D

According to BR, at the end of 2004 both Clemens and Maddux had a career ERA+ of 141. This is before Clemens dropped his buck-seventy on the league this year.
