Who to avoid?

It's no coincidence he and Rocket, once they got chummy, saw Andy excel. His record since last June is like 37-10 (not accurate but close).


I wish him all the best, but I think that Glavine's numbers last year and Petitte's this year will be damn close. (Except for wins) His career road ERA is a full point higher than his home ERA. Then again I've never really been impressed with Petitte. He is basically a one-category pitcher, with an average-to-bad ERA and ratio. My prediction for this year:

13W
4.40 ERA
1.45 WHIP
130 SO


Another to avoid: Livian Hernandez.

What do you consider a bust? Lopez could very well hit 20 hrs with 75 rbis. Loiaza could sport a 3.75 era with 14 wins.

Batters ...
Adam Dunn

as far as indivdual Pitchers .. .the list is endless.
Tomko
Estes
Park
Byrd
Burnett
Leiter
El Duque

Then there is Pat Burrell...stay far, far away.

Shawn Green is also someone you should only get at a good price. He could come back in a big way, but you should not assume that. Larry Walker falls into this category also.

Javy Lopez is a major bust candidate as is Loaiza.


All you did is name players who did bad last year. Shawn Green should have a much better season, and is a good guy to get cheap if you can.

PETTITE IS NOT A NUMBER ONE

He has never been that guy. He might have tons of wins but he wouldnt have had them in some other other team. Just look at his ERA and WHIP, is says a, lot about a guy to win 20 games it says much more when your era is 4.00
