Thurman or Tsao?

Postby icalderus » Thu Aug 07, 2003 1:23 pm

Ive seen the lines on both these teams and both look pretty damn good. I currently have Thurman on my squad and want to see how he does. But if Tsao is hot enough then perhaps ill pick him up. But theres always the Coors factor for Tsao, but then again he just handled the Phillies really well at Coors (unless Im mistaken). Also, Thurman does have the Jays Offense, but then again Tsao has good O in Coors. Hmmmm.....I am leaning on Thurman although I like Tsaos potential. What do you boys think?

I'd probably stick with Thurman if those are the only options. Tsao @ Coors scares me. I don't like having a pitcher that I have to bench half the time he pitches.

I did see him his first start and he looked pretty decent, but is considered a marginal prospect at best. Plus, he plays half his games at SkyDome, which has proven to be a dangerous park for pitchers this year. Tsao, obviously is no better of an option; he probably has more raw talent than Thurman, but pitching at Coors negates this.

Frankly, I wouldn't touch either of these guys unless you're in a very deep AL only league. If you desperately need a starting pitcher in a mixed league, trade for another starter or get a good middle reliever.

No, I'd prefer Radke over Hampton. Hampton's control is terrible (5.4 BB/9 innnings), and he is barely striking out more than he is walking, making him useless in the K department. His ERA and WHIP will also most likely hurt you, so he's a 1 category wins only performer.

Radke also doesn't get many K's, but at least he has close to a 3:1 K/BB ratio, and his WHIP is decent at 1.31. The only reason his ERA is so high is that he was giving up all kinds of homers early in the year. His last 6 starts have been pretty decent, and he's only given up 4 HR in those starts, so he seems to be turning it around and is less scary than Hampton, who seems to have 8 or 9 ER blowups once a month or so.
