Any concern for these pitchers?

Postby wkelly91 » Tue Nov 01, 2005 8:09 pm

These are their ERA, WHIP, & Wins for the last 1/4 of the year.

4.576 1.780 1-Oliver Perez
5.018 1.673 2-Jaret Wright
7.364 1.636 2-Mike Mussina
4.969 1.528 4-Kurt Schilling
5.311 1.475 0-Brian Lawrence
5.576 1.451 1-Livan Hernandez
4.856 1.446 1-AJ Burnett
3.857 1.446 6-Roy Oswalt
4.137 1.427 3-Josh Beckett


They all had terrible WHIP. Could it be bad for next year? :-?

4.576 1.780 1-Oliver Perez - I won't draft him.
5.018 1.673 2-Jaret Wright - I won't draft him.
7.364 1.636 2-Mike Mussina - I won't draft him.
4.969 1.528 4-Kurt Schilling - I won't draft him.
5.311 1.475 0-Brian Lawrence - I won't draft him.
5.576 1.451 1-Livan Hernandez - Not really concerned, probably just overworked as usual and it started to catch up with him.
4.856 1.446 1-AJ Burnett - As above, although his value will be affected by where he ends up.
3.857 1.446 6-Roy Oswalt - No concern.
4.137 1.427 3-Josh Beckett - Always injury concerns.

i agree with Rynman, although i think i'm a bit more leary of burnett than he is. IMO, he'll probably be drafted before i'm willing to take him next year.

I think I'm probably as leary as you GF.....I'm just a little unsure where I stand with him....but the strikeouts are just so appealing.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

Unless you play in a league that counts infield insects killed, I wouldn't draft Lawrence.

Oswalt was lights out in the playoffs. I think he had a dead arm for a bit.

Burnett seem to struggle once teams started looking at him.

Schilling and Mussina are near the end.

I would draft Oswalt, Perez, Beckett, Burnett.

i would have absolutely no worries about oswalt for next year,,, he was great in the playoffs and he just hit a stretch where he had little command of his fastball in august,,, and he was complaining of a dead arm around the same time.....

Not too worried about Livan, Oswalt, Burnett or Beckett in the sense of playing below predicted level. I think I'd take the chance on Perez if he's there late enough for me. The other guys I'm staying away from.

i think oliver is a great sleeper for next year. a couple of weeks before the season ended, i read that the pirates were going to monitor perez's offseason program, so that he can regain his former effectiveness.
