What relievers are starting this year?

Postby Guest » Sat Feb 21, 2004 9:19 pm

Anyone know any guys who pitched some relief last year and are starting this year? Our scoring is geared more towards starting pitching than relievers (points based system, start 3 starters and 1 reliever). And a guy only has to have 5 games at a position last year to qualify this year. I'm thinking of using a starting pitcher in my relief slot this year. Kim from the Sox immediately comes to mind. Anyone else? Thanks

I think clearly your best option would be Johan Santana...he qualifies at RP in yahoo this year and is a top pitcher...

He's starting, he's got nasty stuff, he's dominant, and he plays in a pretty weak division...

I look for 16 wins, 3.15 era, 1.10 whip, and not quite one K/IP...

other than Santana, I can only think of Kim who is definitely starting...

other guys to keep you eyes on in case a starter goes down in their respective rotations are Wilson Alvarez and Scott Shields. Both pitched well as starters last year when called upon to do so. As of right now though, they are just long relievers.

Go for Santana!

Santana could be very big for you. Also you might think about making a place on your roster for Rafael Soriano in case he gets to start sometime thru the year.

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

Excellent. Thanks a bunch. I'm going to try and pick up a couple of these guys and pitch the one with two starts and the best matchups.
