April 15th = Fausto Carmona Day?

Moderator: Baseball Moderators

Postby Krunk City King$ » Sat Apr 15, 2006 12:31 pm

Today is the day!

Fausto Carmona to start vs. Tigers
Fausto Carmona is scheduled to make his major league debut Saturday in place of C.C. Sabathia. Reliever Jason Davis could be the one sent down.

Too bad that they guy that I am playing against picked him up...

:-t

Here is to 4 runs and an no decision kid...

Carmona had a 0.75 ERA with 8 Ks and no walks in 12 spring innings. He warrants an immediate flier in all deeper leagues that allow you to stash reserves, because of his promise and potential 3-to-5 week opportunity starting for a contending club. Carmona, 22, has the ability to stick if he pitches well, but he won't get the chance if he gets lit up or injured in Triple-A on Thursday. Track him in that start. It's crucial for him.


News flash, Dewon Brazelton had a sub 2 ERA in 15 or so innings in ST. News flash, ST don't mean anything. Carmona is only 21 so it takes time for him to develope. I'd prefer Scott Olsen at this point.

He pitched pretty well. DET hitters did him a favor by chasing a lot of pitches out of the zone however. Also the ump was pretty generous with the K zone. Plus Hollandsworth took away a two run shot.

It will take more than one great outing for me to get excited about this kid. He's a reasonable prospect and he's pitched well but I'm not sure if he is going to stick.

Carmona wishes he could be another Verlander. Justin probably has more talent in his big toe. :-D

Haha :-D

Yeah, but I'm not sure why so many people jumped on Verlander. His time will come, but it's not yet. He's in the breaking-in phase of his Major league career.
