Sabathia's IP

Postby mkultra » Wed Jun 27, 2007 3:36 pm

What's not to love about CC? He's 11-2, and his ERA and WHIP are down while K's are up.

Here's the thing- he's already pitched 122 innings so far, and it's not even the All-Star break yet. He's only crossed the 200IP mark once.

Cause for concern? Sell now or ride it out?

He was one of my preseason sleepers again this year (I will post all my preseason sleepers after half way mark).

There is really nothing not to like. He has upper 90s fastball and great secondary pitches which he can locate well. The problem with almost all young pitchers with dominant stuff is that they tend to try and blow the ball by everyone instead of pitching. CC was on the same boat but he has really matured and finally becoming the stud that he was supposed to be. The scary part is that he is only 25 yo...

I think the pitch count matters more than IP, if a guy throws 110 pitches and goes 8 innings every game he's just as fine as the guy throwing 110 pitches and going 6 innings.

Yes. I'll dig it up during the AS Break for review.

Ok haha I was thinking along the lines of how eeasy it would be to post preseason sleepers for the first time half way through the year:

"Yea I had Corey Hart, Russell Martin, JJ Hardy, Ian Snell, Jeremy Guthrie, Brandon Phillips, Eric Brynes, Sean Marshall....I am a genius"

but reviewing upon a past post is always fun. I always try to predict the standings and awards and breakout guys before the season...then it is fun to go back and look after the season ends.

This is a guy I became sold on by people on this forum, and I pretty much drafted him in every league, and I really couldn't be any happier about it.
