Rebirth of Great Starters?

Postby Heavy Lumber » Fri Jan 02, 2004 4:51 pm

What starting pitcher do you feel has the greatest opportunity for a 'rebirth'?

A. Randy Johnson - or has age and wear/tear finally caught up to the Big Unit?

B. Curt Schilling - will the workhorse continue to log big innings this year?

C. Greg Maddux - he had a sub-par year by his standards, however, is a return to 18 games and a low three ERA on the horizon, once we found out where he will be pitching?

D. Other - you fill in the blank!

I think Randy Johnson will be a great bargain at this year's drafts. If you're willing to take a chance on him, he's got a huge upside for a 4th (or so) round pick. Schilling should have an exceptional year in Boston, as it usually takes a half season for a league to adjust to a good starting pitcher, so he'll be improving with his move.
Maddux, IMO, is the worst bet of the three to regain his career averages. He doesn't have the mental edge anymore of knowing that his stuff will work, and with the umpires shrinking the strike zones, he's got less room to pitch on the black.
Another Year, Another Championship. I'm 2 for 2.

I think RJ is gonna be a bust this year. I have a feeling he is gonna struggle and won't have enough "O" to get wins either.

His former teammate Schilling looks like a good bet to improve his win total in Boston, and be a solid pick considering where he is going.

I see a bounce back for RJ. Not sure about wins, but era/whip/k's should be sweet. :-)

Wade Miller is a stud who just needs to stay healthy for a full season.

Johan Santana is going to be a fantasy monster "reborn" as a starter.
