Time to give up on Dave Bush?

Postby napes22 » Mon May 22, 2006 9:15 pm

He's been awful as of late...more so on the road...what do you think. Cut or just stash on the bench until he turns it around...if he turns it around.

play him at home, definitely not on the road. Worth a bench spot, as he continues to K.

I'm not giving up on him because of his WHIP. Has a rough two-start this week at Cinci and Philly.

He's been pitching better than his ERA indicates. If you believe calculations for "expected" ERA, his is more than a run lower than his actual ERA, which indicates he's been more unlucky than bad. Plus, Cincy is can HIT. His WHIP is good, his K rate is very good, and he should get good run support. I'm holding on to him for a while longer -- but obviously his leash is shorter with each lousy outing.

Nah, don't give up on him yet, but don't expect him to put up the same numbers from the beginning of the season either.

Bush is a good pitcher, but he prolly will never be more than average. :-/ The K numbers do look good though.

it depends on the other options out there. if you can afford to keep him around for spot starts here and there, keep him around. if not, let him go.

He's actually been a solid spot starter for me, although I've only played him a handful of times at home. His road #s are just dreadful, and from the looks of my cbssportsline league, I'd say about 50% of the people who own him found that out the HARD way yesterday. :~(

Depends on how many teams in your league and the set-up. I would keep him, however, I would only pitch him at home or against weak-hitting teams on the road. He has a good bb/k ratio etc. I also believe he has a favorable schedule coming up.

I'm holding onto him, but I guess I should pay more attention to the Splits.
