Chad Billingsley situation

Postby J.C.Fighter » Sun Jun 10, 2007 7:09 pm

What is going on?????? The Dodgers arent using him out of the bullpen . They rather trot out there bums like Hendrickson and Tomko. If he's not even being used as a reliever they should stick his ass in the rotation...!!!!!!!!!! :P :P

Maybe its just me but Little just doesnt seem to like him. He seems to want any option but him. As much as I hate to admit it im expecting them to trade him.

Well...you have Penny, Lowe, Schmidt, and then Wolf who are the solid 4 starters. Kuo has first dibs at the #5 spot. Kuo is a pretty good prospect himself, with a very good K/9. With Saito's recent injuries, and Broxton getting touched up recently...Little at least knows that he's got a solid guy in Billingsley to set the table, and fill in if needed. Once Saito and Broxton settle back down...the four previously mentioned starters have a nack for getting injured. I'd say Billingsley will get his shot sooner than later. At least Little hasn't said that CB won't get his shot. Be patient, he's getting some good learning in the setup role. Not saying CB's going to be the next Johan, but similarly he started out the same way.

Gotta agree the situation makes no sense. They haven't given Bills a rotation slot, even though he definately should have had one over Tomko and Henricksen from Day One and certainly over Kuo, and they don't seem to be using him nearly enough in relief. The guy's their best SP prospect and he's been buried in mid-relief. Has the team noticed he's been lights-out and K-ing everyone in sight??

Amen to that. I am ready to pick him up when he gets the call. He's probably a guy that most owners have given up on.

I just nabbed him in my keeper league. Somehow he was sitting out there on the FA list. Here's to hoping he gets the nod soon.

I agree with the "Grady doesn't like him" argument. It makes no sense and with his K/9 he needs to be starting
I'm too lazy to make a sig at the moment

Note that Schmidt got knocked around on Sunday with a FB that reportedly topped out at 87-88. If that's true, he's not healthy and the team could have another rotation slot open soon.

It looks like the Dodgers are going to be battling it out in their division until late in the season, so I'm betting they want to squirrel away some second-half innings on CB's young arm. I hate it right now, but I think it's the smart move for the team.
