I'm wondering if you guys think he is the real deal. He's had 2 very good starts and another comingup against san francisco. Do the cardinals really like him? What you guys think??

I have no clue about this guy, but the SF offense can make anyone look like Cy Young these days... he's definitely worth looking at for a spot start this week if you need it.

'08 Stats: 12.0 IP, 2.25 ERA, 1.08 WHIP, W, 13:4 K:BB
Market Value: Moderate Buy
Lowdown: Not even a nosebleed can stop Todd Wellemeyer from achieving greatness. The journeyman reliever-turned-starter overcame red nasal drip in Houston on April 7 to deliver his second-straight attention-grabbing start – 7 IP, 5 H, 2 ER, 1 BB, 7 Ks. In his days as a reliever, Wellemeyer always tried to overpower hitters with his electric mid-90s fastball. Embracing the teachings of mound Master Splinter Dave Duncan this spring, the 29-year-old hurler has learned to keep the ball down in the zone, leaning on a nasty breaking ball to offset his heat. If Wellemeyer can continue to stay ahead in counts (3.00 BB/9 in '08), harness his aggressiveness and throw with more finesse, he will continue to induce groundball outs (46.4 GB%) and work deep into games. Eligible at SP and RP, Wellemeyer is a flexible source of strikeouts who could post early season numbers similar to what teammate Braden Looper compiled in April and part of May last year.
Fearless Forecast: 155 IP, 4.26 ERA, 1.30 WHIP, 147 K, 9 W

I got that from Yahoo

3 or 4 years ago there was a lot of people who were high on Wellemeyer as a prospect. Cueto is this years Wellemeyer or something like that.

Wellemeyer never arrived as a Cub and few have been high on him since.

He always had talent - he never really achieved. There's always hope.
