Anybody have any thoughts about him? I know he had a bad 2005, but his 2nd half was pretty good. Think he can bounce back to close to what he was?

I definetly think he will have a better season. If Bonds stays in the lineup then Schmidt will get even more wins.

Schmidt's second half last year was decent, but he was nowhere near as overpower as the previous few years. He lost quite a bit of gas off his fastball and until spring training starts, we won' t know if he'll ever have his 98mph fastball back again.

As a long time giants fan (not to be biased or anything) schmidt will have a great season. All the elements are in place. He has more run support with a healthy BONDS. Also, Matheney will continue to call the best catcher in handling pitchers and calling games. It is true that schmidt has lost something, but he can still throw it up there around 92-95 mph. THE BIGGEST reason is that although his fastball is gone, he has a devastating changeup. Many people think that the fastball is his stirkeout pitch but it is indeed the changeup. Just look at trevor hoffman, thrown an 80 sumthin mph fastball but gets the job done with the nasty change. Schmidt isnt tjust a thrower, he has some nasty stuff as well. PLUS he pitches at Pac Bell/SBC/AT&T park. Hope this helps!

Hoffman can afford to work with the change as his major pitch because he only throws for one inning. I'd be more comfortable if Schmidt could learn how to mix his pitches effectivey like Pedro, who also only throws around 93 mph these days but he mixes in the change so perfectly. Also, Pedro's fastball has a ton of movement, if Schmidt's does also, then he should be effective, despite a drop in velocity.

I think that schmidt is going to have a better year than last year, but his days of being a top 10-15 pitcher are over. he is getting old and he isnt throwing as hard as he used to. injuries are also a concern
