How does everyone feel about him? I see him as a late round sleeper.

I'm not touching him. 4.76 career ERA and a spotty health record.

he'll get run support but i'm affraid his era will be around 4.40 or so. I'll have to monitor his progress in Spring Training before I take a chance on him.

Check his ERA. Even when healthy, he hasn't posted an ERA under 4.3 for a full season.

Pass, unless you are desperate for pitching in an NL only league.

I agree with you. He's one of the few pitchers whose ERA doesn't match what his WHIP would indicate it should be. At worst, his high ERA will be offset by good WHIP, win, and K totals, but if he gets his ERA down to where it should be he could become a top 20 pitcher. He's very much a good late round gamble in my opinion.

Can't deny the health issue, but isn't there a chance that his ERA might drop going to the NL and escaping the Metrodome?

I wouldn't expect it to drop alot. If you have some solid pitchers with good Whip and era and need wins he could help.

There will come a day when Barry Bonds leaves baseball, and everything about the game will be the better for it.

I see him having a year similar to Redman last year. Redman in Detroit has a horrible ERA and not many wins, but a pretty good WHIP which is a better indication of the pitchers abilty than ERA. Then last year you finally got his ERA down.

I think Milton does the same thing. Not gonna be the ace of your staff, but will help you win your league.

Definite Sleeper IMO. ;-D

i think he will win around 15 games, have an ERA around 4 and have a good amount of k's, probably a top 40 pitcher in the next year, so yeah i think he is worth a late round pick, but i wouldnt go too early on him considering injuries, but he has to figure out how not to give up runs sooner or later.
Reyes and guerrero, the two most blessed players in the league, not to mention the most fun to watch
