What SP's are you looking at down the stretch?

Postby Irish » Mon Jul 30, 2007 6:27 pm

It seems like alot of my waiver wires are relatively barren in terms of SP's. Who are you looking at in the next few months that could be a possible sleeper or quality call-up? Are there any left?

Too give you an idea I've been looking at Garza, McGowan, Bannister %-6 , but other then that I'm starting to draw a blank. Who are the SP's down the stretch people are going to be grabbing that aren't on many teams right now?

I got Pedro *crossing my fingers* and Hughes is long gone. I'm looking a little deeper then that. I'm aware of most of the standard names, I'm more curious about players I may not have heard of as of yet. It feels like this year more then ever, most likely because so many young pitchers did so well last year, that pretty much everyone with hype gets picked up right away.

I'm trying to see if there are players that have got no press yet, but will become the next hot pick-up 3 or 4 weeks from now essentially.

I'm taking a flyer on Scott Baker. His season numbers aren't great but I think they are a little deceiving. His K/BB numbers are well above average (3.47) suggesting that he is actually pitching pretty well while his "luck" stats of BABIP and and LOB% suggest that he has been a bit unlucky. They sit at .322 and 65.2% respectively.

He will never be an ACE but might be worthwhile in a number of cats over the next 6 weeks or so.

I also guess that today's start against KC will tell us more.

Nice one , I agree ;-D

Andy Sonnanstine might be worth a go. I know he's in THAT division but he seems to have the potential to make it with his walk rate etc.
Also , if he's been thrown away or his owner sells low , Ian Snell is worth acquiring. He will get his act together after going loopy in July.

I've been keeping an eye on Brandon McCarthy. He had a bad start to the season, then started pitching well before going on the DL with blister problems.
Because of the time he's missed he should be fresh down the stretch and he's just to good a pitcher not to bounce back. The Rangers ballpark scares me though.

Wainwright has been very good.. his numbers are hidden because he had such a bad start.
