What's up with the walks from Noah Lowry?

Postby spark0901 » Tue May 22, 2007 12:30 am

Anyone have any idea why Lowry is walking so many batters (or striking out so few?) He's limiting teams to very few runs, but where are the K's and what's up with the BB's?

What are you expecting from the guy? His WHIP is right on par with his career stats, and he's really not much of a K pitcher. I imagine you are in a pretty deep league if you are relying on him. I'm in a farily deep 12-man league and he is my #5 pitcher.

I'm just glad he keeps the ERA down. Heck, I'd take these numbers all year. ;-D

Well, in 2005 he struck out around 175 and walked around 60, which is not in line with what he is doing now. He is pitching well and he is currently my #5 starter in a 12 team league. I was just wondering if this seemed unusual to anyone else and if maybe someone had a theory as to why this was the case.

I am not sure but I am guessing 2005 was probably his rookie year.....just like Dice K this year....batters havent seen him. In 2005, he was trying to make an impression and like most young pitchers just trying to blow batters away with his fastball.

I'm about to give up on this guy soon.

This year, he has not shown me anything to set him apart for the rest of my above average rotation.

There was much hype surrounding this guy, but I'm not seeing it.

I have used him twice, since picking him up after Harden went on the DL, and he's been solid for me. His velocity hasn't been the same since his rookie year, and I'm not sure why. He's nothing special, and should be used wisely, unless he can start missing bats again.

Have I landed in bizarro world or something? You guys are talking like the guy has an ERA of 5.00+ and a WHIP of 1.50+ or something. Fellas, his ERA is 2.69, one of the lowest in the league, and his WHIP is 1.34, which is UNDER league average. Obviously he shouldn't be anyones ace, but you guys are talking like he sucks or something, when he has actually been quite good this year, regardless of the walks. Hitters are just hitting .234 against him and those 5 wins and 1 complete game rank him as the #164 player in my league, ahead of even Ben Sheets.

Obviously his stats might rise a bit, but are you guys really gonna be disappointed by a ERA of say.....4.00 and a WHIP of 1.36 or so with 140 - 150 K's and 15 wins? That is quite helpful in 95% of ROTO leagues.
