The Official Call Jeremy Sowers up Thread

Postby Double Play Ball » Fri Jun 16, 2006 12:14 am

Not only will calling Sowers up be good for tribe fans, but also for fantasy teams across the cafe. Here at the cafe we no before anyone else when a top prospect will be coming out. SO everyone here should be ahead of the pack when he gets called up.
Right now Sowers in AAA Buffalo this year Sowers is 7-1 with a 1.37 ERA and a 1.15 WHIP. In 85 and a third innings he hsa gave up only 1 home run. He better be getting called up soon, and send the bum Jason Johnson up to Buffalo where he belongs.

Yeah, but it takes Yahoo 3 weeks to get a guy into the FA pool, and by that time, he's had 3 solid starts, struck out 30 guys, given up 3 hits, and been written up on ESPN and Yahoo. :-[

A huge problem this year it seems with yahoo. So many good players are getting called up and the ones who do their research are missing out. To be honest I think I'd rather wait on him because Im trying to get get billingsley right now.

Sowers is a nice pitcher, but not someone the typical fantasy player will get excited about I don't think. He has low K numbers, doesn't throw very hard, etc.

I think Hirsh and Sowers are close to being on par with each other.

I think he has a chance to become a solid #3 guy but he is a "puss" thrower. It looks like he knows what he is doing out there and can throw strikes but there aren't many guys who can be consistantly successful with a poor SO rate (less than 5 per 9)

= 5 Ks per 9


Not many people go after guys who can only strike out 112 guys in a season unless there ratios are lights out!

Don't get me wrong I think he has a chance to be a pretty solid major leaguer but more so in real life than for fantasy purposes. He's definately one of the "worst" in the crop of prospects that has come up this year.

I wouldn't say he's one of the the worst SP to come up though. I mean only Billingsley, Lester, Hamels, & Weaver are probably for sure better than Sowers. I guess arguments could be made on Angel Guzman having more potential. But I think Sowers could could one day be a good source of wins, era, and whip.

Verlander, Liriano, J Johnson (if he can keep throwing strikes), Cain (if he can start throwing strikes) are all better as well.

I like Sowers, but much more so in real life than for fantasy purposes.

But like we all say..... thats why we play the games!

I better get this guy. After winning the battle for Hamels I lost the races for Jered Weaver, Billingsley and Milledge. I do have Kemp though. I could use the next big callup.
