What was wrong with his last start? 7IP, 1ER, 1BB, 6H, 3K....that equates to a 1.29 ERA and 1.00 WHIP. You got a problem with that? I don't.....it's not DOMINANCE, but it's a great start. I know you didn't draft Peavy for 3K in 7IP, but you can't expect someone to K 12 every start. Read this tread and you'll get the gist...
He'll always have the poor mechanics stigma floating over him, those saying that he will breakdown any minute, but if healthy and on he is a top 3 pitcher in baseball....this equates to me as HIGH reward, moderate risk.
If someone offered me Contreras for my Peavy I couldn't accept the deal.
