Manny Parra

Postby biggamer3 » Thu Mar 20, 2008 10:07 am

Who else is in love with this guy?

you can get him undrafted now

This kid has a .64 ERA through 15 spring innings with a 15/2 K to BB ratio!

He was a stud prospect who got set back a few years due to injury

If he makes the Brewers rotation he will be a steal this year

I'm still skeptical. Injury history and he hasn't thrown more than 139 in any year. He's worth a flyer but I wouldn't count on much.

There's the most important thing...
He'll be OK, but at this point it looks like he's starting in AAA. He's also extremely injury prone.

They havent said for sure if he will be sent down

And he is not much of a risk i mean he goes undrafted, if he starts off bad you just cut him

The talent is for real but if he starts the year in AAA you are looking at maybe 100-130 IP out of him assuming he stays healthy. He'll be on a pretty strict innings limit.

This is how I feel. They will be very cautious with him and even if they do, he may break down given his history.

So, who do you like better: Cueto or Parra. I picked up Cueto, but am holding off on Parra. I think Cueto has a good year.

Cueto if for no other reason has a better (at this point almost sure) chance of making the rotation. And if he struggles, Cincy doesn't have the options the brewers do (meaning alonger leash)

I never said he was being sent down for sure, nor did I say he'd be a risky pick. I just think you should temper your expectations a bit.

Royals batted around on Parra tonight in the 1st. Couple cheap hits, couple solid singles, couple walks and 4 ER.
