Capuano: The Real Deal?

Postby Doughhead » Sat Apr 29, 2006 8:58 am

I know Cappy had a very good season last year, piling up 18 wins and pitching over 200 innings. Still, his WHIP and ERA didn't make him a legit frontline fantasy SP. Is that going to change this year? Any reason to believe he'll keep his WHIP down and continue to build on his breakout 2005 season?

He is not ace material, but he has shown flashes.
He will be a solid number 3 or 4 for any fantasy team for the next couple of years. Since he will pitch in the central you would be best served to treat him that way. ;-D

He was overused at the end of 2005, check out his splits and you'll see that his ERA/WHIP jumped over the last month. It would not surprise me to see him post closer to a 3.5 era this year.

Also keep in mind he has the best pickoff move in baseball which can only help. I've seen him pick off guys who had 2 step leads, its that good. Some managers have their poor baserunners like pitchers etc actually stand directly on the base against him.

i like cap a lot this year.. he should be a good number 2 fantasy starter on a fantasy team.. i think he will post an era of 3.50 or under a whip of around 1.20 and 180-190 ks.. expect a very nice year from him, he was very underated coming into this season..
