What was the deal with Peavy in '06

Postby Fantasy Addict » Sun Mar 09, 2008 10:15 pm

Is there some kind of chink in his armor that I should know about? I am thinking about trading him and Chipper Jones for Utley and Holladay. What do you all think and know?

I think it was just one of those years where everything that could go wrong simply went wrong.

And as for your trade response, of course it depends on your roster. But that should go in the Trade, Keeper, Waiver, etc.. forum thingy.

He had a small spike in FB% in the first half and a small spike in BB/9 in the 2nd half that year. Most of it was just bad luck though, high BABIP, low strand rate.

Using Shandler's xERA he has had a 3.40, 3.04, 3.60, 3.23 over the past 4 years vs ERAs of 2.28, 2.88, 4.10, 2.54. ERA is just a poor stat over a 200 IP sample so it jumps around a lot.

He had some shoulder issues. World Baseball Classic didn't do him any favors since he was logging high leverage innings instead of at Spring Training getting warmed up.

What the Mighty Yoda said. the WBC caused a lot of problems for pitchers in 2006, especially Peavy.

He also had a problem with having the wrong prescription contact lenses I think.

Yep. Also combine that with the fact that he had his first 200+ IP ML season in 2005 and I was a little worried about him being overworked. I was not surprised to see him have a bad 2006.
