Vaz is back?

Postby Transmogrifier » Wed Jul 23, 2003 8:49 pm

I know it's just the Mets, but through 6, he's got 8 Ks, a 3.00 ERA and a .83 WHIP.

I had a trade on the table but many here thought he wasn't coming back. Any minds changed yet?

I haven't changed my opinion yet. I still say sell him.

Now 7 innings, 9 Ks, 2.57 era, .86 WHIP.

I don't know. Seems like a guy to buy... I know he's not top 10, but he's still pretty damn good.

Agreed. Sell him while his value is high! He'll win a couple and then lose a couple in a row...

His last two starts have been impresive...but his prior 7 starts have been bad...And I wouldn't trust my staff to anyone with the pen behind him that he has...I agree to sell him why you can....

yeah, but what are you selling him for? he's as good as his numbers show... it's not like he's going to get any worse... his value was at its peak in april, not now... even if you sell him now, you're probably not going to get anything better for him at this point.

he's a talent, it's that simple, and he's streaky... his value is high right now because he's always a valuable pitcher. people just don't seem to like a guy who gets bombed and then throws a shutout because the shelling is all they remember. personally, i think the numbers will stay about the same with a better winning percentage. i hope you're getting kerry wood in return (who is not that much better) if you're trading vazquez.

he'll have his bumps in the road, but it's not like he's going to implode. he had a poor second half last year, but the year before that he was the cy young of the second half... so there's no real point of reference to defend if you're selling him.

sorry, but i just don't like it when people hate on vazquez.
