no one will have a lincecum impact, gallardo might be close
but he should be fairly solid,

doesn't walk anyone, i already have had might stashed for 3 weeks
granted its a pitching favored keeper league

Would anyone drop F. Garcia for this guy? My pitching is weak and any improvements would help.

I'm thinking John Maine-like with a best case Verlander type results.

I'm thinking Slowey is going to be like Sowers. I would keep Garcia over him. That is just me though.

how would be like sowers who doesn't strike anyone out??
slowey is almost at 1 per inning, he is absolutely dominating right now,
i hate freddy g. but i'd likely find someone else to drop, or wait a start, but slowey might be gone by then

Slowey relies on locating his fastball in about 75% of his pitches. He does not have an overpowering fastball either so his strikeout rate will decrease, possibly dramatically at the big league level. He could be very effective, but he doesn't have the stuff to maintain a high strikeout rate.

The call has not yet been made. It is "expected" by the local paper as the caoching staff is having a meeting with Ortiz. A move then would "open the door" for Slowey.

This said, I picked him up - but it's not like he's guaranteed to start even this week.
