BRANDON WEBB @ COORS?!!

Postby BigUnit51 » Wed Jul 02, 2003 9:03 am

this guy has been absolutely sensational this season and i may have gotten the best out him this sesaon... But the Rockies trio of Helton, Walker, and Preston is pretty scary and they are all big fly hittes... Fortunately for Webb, the thin air doesnt affect fly balls. So does Webb get the nod tomorrow or no??

He means thin air does not affect ground balls, as Webb records at least 2/3 of his outs on the ground.

He's been so good lately, and I need the start this week in my H2H league, so I'm starting him.

I'm starting him. The Rockies got shut down last night, so there is hope that Webb could get another gem.

I would bench him. Coors Field is Coors Field, whatever kind of pitcher you are ...

Mike Hampton is a groundball pitcher, and Coors took him and made him a shell of his former self. Never pitch starters at Coors, especially rookies.

If Chacon can pitch great at Coors, anyone can :-D

Hampton pitched well enough at Coors his first half season to go to the All Star Game.

Maybe its just prolonged exposure to Coors Field that can be damaging to a pitcher's health! :-D
