Year of the Young Strike Out Pitcher?

Postby acsguitar » Mon May 29, 2006 6:53 pm

I don't ever remember a year with such success from rookie/second year power pitchers.

Verlander, Bonser, Liriano, Weaver, Hamels.

Even though they have had limited starts all of them have been pretty successfull.

Are there any comparrison's that can be made to this years up and coming pitchers.

Yeah, you're jumping the boat here a little bit, especially on Weaver's 7 major league innings. Liriano's been useful in the pen for the most part, Hamels is still getting his feet wet, and Verlander's been touched up as well (though it is to be expected). All in all, I think 2 months from now, only one, maybe two of these guys will warrant ownership in any 12-team redraft leagues. In keepers, guys will hang on for dear life, even if these guys are giving up moonshots; because, well, that's what fantasy GMs do. Either way, I think once these guys get a few more starts under their belts, we'll start seeing them come back to Earth, some plummeting even further.

2001
Sabathia
Oswalt
Sheets

2002
Beckett
Zambrano
Peavy
Prior
Ollie Perez
Brett Myers


The biggest difference between most of those classes and this one is that the young stud pitchers are getting started much earlier in the season, as compared to the normal September call-up time.

I think these are good pickups for a short time. As they will start to get touched up as people get used to them.

But still they coud warrant some good starts

Another fine observation, Tav.
That's what struck me about all these call-ups: their early season arrival. Makes for some white-knuckled waiver priority decisions that usually get saved for late summer.

That said, I like Liriano to have the best '06 of the bunch.
