Can this guy really be as bad as he was last year? He was quite a decent pitcher for the Dodgers...lots of K's.

Am I silly for thinking he can keep that ERA down and get the wins and K's in Texas?

silly indeed. he will get those k's, but the era and wins just wont be there. hes worth a shot late in a draft, but not much more.

Park had an off year in 2002. The Ballpark in Arlington is the opposite of Chavez Ravine, but I think Chan Ho will bounce back. He'll make it look respectable and his K's might approach 200. Certainly less wins but won't be as bad as 2002. I'm counting on him this year!

Park is a great case for park effects. Why Texas gave him 51 mil after his splits in LA, is a mystery to me.

00 LA home era 2.35 road 4.29
01 LA home era 2.36 road 4.83

As you can see, Parks road era was around 2 runs higher. LA deflated his stats. Jump to 02

02 TBIA home era 6.84 road 4.66

As you can see, Parks road era remains constant in the 4.3 -4.6 range. However, without a extreme pitchers park, he now gets pounded at home. His only worth is in leagues where you can start him only on road.

I don't buy it. Chan Ho had a couple years where he had phenomenal opponents average against (like .210), and many strikeouts. That makes him hard to hit. True, he did most of his damage at home, but I don't think a home park makes you unhittable. It just makes some home runs long fly outs, and foul balls catchable.

I would expect Chan Ho to improve dramatically this year. He may not set the world on fire because he never has, but I wouldn't expect his ERA to be in the 5.00s again. He is a yo yo, catch him when it is coming back up.

I would guess 4.25 with 15 wins, and 200 k's. not bad.

i think he's done

Park is done. The move to texas changed him. He will put up Ks, but that's about it.

I do believe that Chan Ho should be better. He's got good stuff BUT there's a concern in my mind that he's not the strongest mentally and that once stuff starts to bug him (say how the ball fliesw @ Arlington) that it continues to - (classic example would be how he gave up 2 slams to Fernando Tatis a few years ago - he gave up the first and then it threw off his game and grooved another one to him). He's not going to be the pitcher he was in 2000 but I'm not ready to announce him as the AL's Mike Hampton.

Chan Ho No!

this guy is a freak and will bounce back to some degree. He will get about 175ks and win 14 games but his era/whip are gonna be a dog. It's Texas' hitting that will keep him in contention

For cryin' out loud, the guys last name is Park! You think he would focus on the Park-effect - named after him, now? lol

He will rebound some - let somone else take him ...
