davidmarver........Chuck James....

Postby J35J » Mon Oct 23, 2006 4:59 pm

Just thought I would throw out my projections for Chuck James, I believe you wanted to get my opinion on that a week or so ago..... so I figured I would do just that.


215 IP
13-14 wins
3.90 ERA
1.30 WHIP
150 SO

He is pretty much just a two pitch pitcher (fastball/change), occassionally throwing a slider, with his change being his best pitch. I think going into his second year the league will catch up to him a bit. Good mechanics and doesn't throw hard so he should see alot of innings next year. Could be a decent end of the rotation late round pick. Probably will be slightly overrated next year though, don't overpay.

.....just my opinion....

I don't see him having an ERA under 4 and losing 14 games
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

I and the Braves would be thrilled if he posted those numbers.

I didn't predict any losses for him in that post. That is either 13 or 14 wins..... ;-D

Wow that is a very optimistic projection for James... Not saying he won't do it but I would think that is the higher end of what he will achieve.

Its a decent regression from last year......... and he is pitching in the NL... ;-7 He should also improve his BB/9 so I think he can keep his ERA at a decent level, he tends to keep hitters off balance with that good change. Oh yeah, he pitches in the NL also!

He does pitch in the NL but he is in the NL EAST. Marlins and Phillies should be pretty good and the Yankees Part 2 should be good also

He pitches in the NL, but he gives up a ton of HRs. That being said I could see him hovering around the 4 ERA mark but I don't see him reaching 215 IP.
