Opinions of Colon, Wade Miller, and Nomo?

Postby joshheines » Mon Nov 10, 2003 9:40 am

What two do you think will be the best 5x5 pitchers of Colon, Miller, and Nomo? I need to acquire two of these guys for my keeper league. I know it's not the best options, but its what I got. I took over for a team and all the good-great pitching is locked up and not moving. I've already made a few moves and here is my team:

My team is Pujols, Helton, Chavez, Beltran, Carlos Lee, Livan Hernandez, Frank Thomas.

I want to get rid of Thomas and Hernandez while their value is high and pick up two pitchers with talent.

Tough 3 to choose from, but here's what I see:

Nomo---LA, pitcher's park, k's should increase this year, need offense to get some wins though.

Colon---I think he will do better this year.

Miller---an enigma, he could be outstanding, or a bust again.

1. Colon - in a roto league, his inconsistancy will not be too painful

2. Nomo - turning 36, he is not that valuable of a keeper

3. Miller - 1 solid season, lots of untapped potential, "Clementlike"

Interesting, that less then a year ago, many were putting Miller in Hudson like company. Now, one shaky year, (4.13 era), basically a typical Colon year, and he's last. Maybe you are right.
But i still like Miller. He had 20 fewer hits then innings (means they aren't hitting him hard), had a 2-1 so ratio. I think his era was maybe a aberration. Colons had 1 big year. It was in nl with no dh. Probably all 3 are close, although in neutral parks, i think Nomo would be last. If you compare Millers and Nomos numbers, they are pretty similiar except for era. I'm going with

Miller
Colon
Nomo

Didn't think I would ever say this but Hootie I have to disagree. They don't pitch in neutral parks. Nomo pitches in a great pitcher's park, Colon most likely is going to the Yanks, and Miller pitches in a band box. Thow in the fact that Miller is somewhat injury prone and Colon and Nomo are workhorses.
