Scott Olsen an under-rated stud this year

Postby kcs261 » Thu Jul 27, 2006 11:39 pm

There is very little talk about this guy and, man, he is putting up just huge numbers this year. He started off rough. But in his last 11 starts, he has gone 7-1 with a 2.19 ERA and 65 Ks. WOW. ;-D

I agree. No fantasy "experts" are saying anything about him.

He's been great for my team, and with that k rate, you gotta love him.

He's been in my "should I start this week or not" bunch of pitchers, but he's getting very close to "must start" status.

Not to toot my own horn (well maybe just a little) but I pimped him as my "breakout pitcher for the 2nd half" at the All Star Break. He's looking very good so far.

It seems to me that any Marlins pitchers are an "under-rated stud"

But Olsen had been going strong LONG before the ASB. He's been a must-start pitcher for me for a couple months now i think.

I didn't have a roster spot for him. Now the guy I'm fighting off for the strikeout lead finally noticed he was out there. :-t

I grabbd him about a month and a half ago, and he's been awesome. I didn't start him this week, cuz I needed to start my "2 start pitchers", but he's pretty much a must start now a days. He has some nasty stuff.

I had him starting June and since he's been a complete stud. Take out May and his ERA would be sub 2.50.

He's been great, and I'm sad I didn't get him on any teams.
