Lilly 10 k's

Postby Philliebuster » Thu Apr 13, 2006 10:06 pm

The Lillyster 10 K'd the bosox tonight, he looked real sharp; with a good curve. He could be worth taking a flier on in deep leagues, if he can return to his 2004 totals and actually pitch a full year, anyone feel any vibes or tingles?

While I like his line tonight, I don't see anything in his career to get erect about. In 2004, he had 168 Ks, which can help out I guess, but his WHIP wasn't anything special, his ERA was decent but still over 4.00, and his K/BB was under 2.00.

Lilly just kills the Sox. Don't have his numbers, but I know they are pretty good against Boston. Blows against most other teams. My kind of player.

Sadly I agree, but then I think...hmm Boston has a pretty potent lineup and he k'd 10 of them, he'd have to do well against other teams, but usually not the case. I did drop Baul Byrd :-o for him though in my 15 teamer.

Problem with Lilly has always been that he'll have an outing like this, then follow it up with 4 of his patented mediocre outings, then he'll get shellacked. Then he'll have another game like tonight's, etc. it just goes in circles. I've been done with that guy for a long time.

He has always been like that. He also seems to be the type to either tire by the 6th inning or that hitters get to the third time through the lineup. Notorious for his middle innings meltdowns with the Yanks.

= 1.96 ERA, 1.08 WHIP

Ted Lilly vs everybody else from 2005-2006:
103.1 IP, 117 H, 75 ER, 57 BB

And that's exactly why I'm not too confident in him this year..
IMO, he'll probably have a better season than last year, but that really isn't saying much.
