Claussen... ADVISABLE OPTION?!

Postby stikmata » Mon May 08, 2006 4:40 pm

vs. WAS (Armas)

and

vs. PHI (Myers)

this week... i guess CBS doesn't take into accound his terrible WHIP and ERA? because he's on a list of advisable pitching options (limited to pitchers with 2 starts this week)... seems like a reach, but i have long arms


BTW: he's already got the green light from me due to desperation, so this is not a add/drop or who do i start type of question... i basically want to hear how stupid CBS is and how i'm even more stupid for listening to them

He's only had 1 bad start this year against Mil where he gave up 9 runs. All of his other starts he hasn't given up over 3 runs an outing and with that offense behind him. I picked him up as a 2 start/spot start this week as well. Take away his Mil start and he's been quite stellar. Remember he was once a highly touted prospect and is still quite young. :*)

i like your optimism... thanks

i think he'll be servicable against Washington... but the Phillies will probably knock him around pretty bad on Sunday... i hope i'm wrong though

...yea, claussen is very on and off...i like his stuff, its just once in a while he'll lose his stuff and have a bad start...

...i dont think its desperation when he faces teams like the nationals (same can be said for many pitchers), but i think once claussen gets his control fine-tuned, he'll be a pretty solid starter in your rotation (see aaron harang - he's a baller)

For those of you who picked the Reds to be last in the central (including espn and si)...i hate all of you, and you are wrong...
