I like Perez as a late round sleeper. He's a bit risky in some H2H formats if you can't afford to bench a guy who might do more harm than good if he looks like he is going to repeat 2005. I play roto and will probably start with a 4 man rotation, and he isn't a part of it.

I don't expect him to repeat 2004, but I know he will get K's. If he posts an ERA and WHIP that don't hurt too much, he will good value. I'm hoping for 14 W's, an ERA not too far above 3.5 and a WHIP around 1.3 with 200+ K's. If he looks terrible after 4-5 starts, I'll cut him loose.

I'm depending on other SP's to keep my ERA and WHIP low. If he doesn't hurt me there, I'll use him.

It's very simple mathematics, why take a guy in the top 5 rounds when you KNOW you can get him in the 15th-20th. I might be expecting Sizemore to put up 1st round numbers, so are you telling me I'd TAKE him 1st when I KNOW I can get him in the 4th or so? Hope that clears it up.


Exactly. Even if I knew that Blalock was going to win the MVP this season, I still wouldn't take him in the first round. I'm pretty sure we all realize it isn't who you draft, but rather when you draft them...

For what it's worth, here's Perez's line from tonight vs. USA in the WBC (surprisingly no k's but seemingly good control):

He was lucky the US was chasing the garbage he was throwing today. He didn't get pounded, but his velocity was down and he still hasn't pitched a whole lot this spring.

He was anything but lights out today. Velocity is WAY down and US, as usual, chased every pitch out of the strike zone. I have my doubts he will come even close to 2004.

He wasn't so bad tonite. No K's, but it could have been worse.

Jeez, what a tough crowd. The guy finally has a decent outing and people say the U.S. hitters were chasing garbage? Isn't that part of pitching, to fool the hitters? Those weren't exactly chumps in the U.S. line-up. I think OP is just getting warmed up like any other pitcher would and now that he only gives up a hit and a walk in 3 IP you chalk it up to batters chasing garbage?...

They might not be chumps but their timing is way off which is why they have had so many issues scoring runs. This is still spring training keep in mind, during the regular season when players are dialed in those are going to be walks.

It's the WBC, not Spring Training. The level of competition is a little higher.
