Poor Armando...

Postby TheYanks04 » Mon Mar 27, 2006 11:55 pm

Rotoworld:
Armando Benitez was left in to give up 10 runs -- nine earned -- in 1 1/3 innings Monday against the Royals.
We're surprised manager Felipe Alou didn't take the hint after he gave up five runs in his first inning. Benitez's velocity remains down as a result of his knee injury, and he's not much without his good fastball. He'll enter the season as the Giants' closer, but if he continues to struggle, Tim Worrell likely will take over.


Seems like shkay and/or injured closers is becoming a tradition in SF MOD EDIT: No need for this last part.

The whole SF bullpen is looking pretty bad this ST.

Armando: 25.41 ERA, 4K/6BB
Walker: 9.39, 4/4
Worrell: 7.27, 4/3

Yuck.

Almost as bad as the Brewers BP:
Turnbow: 11.05 8/8
Kolb: 10.80 1/5


double yuck.

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

I sure hope he regains his fastball, I sorta need him to produce.

I had him last year so I learned my lesson for this year and dropped him pretty much off my board to begin with... :-°

By "learning your lesson," you could be missing out on a good portion of really cheap saves. The Giants always are among the better fraction of the league in producing save opps.

There's just certain players you decide to stay away from. He was one of them. Plus, he went in the 11th in my league, which was way too early imo.

does that mean that you modified your projections? or you have your pre-spring training projections and are still sticking to them? (not being sarcastic, asking seriously).

but christmas tree closers don't last very long. even if it is only st #'s.
