Slowey will have about a 5 era with a 1.8 whip and will not win more then 5 games the rest of the season.


Maybe he slept with your sister?

Yeah, most "bums" post 361:52 K:BB ratios (367.1 IP) in their minor league careers....oh yeah, with a 1.94 ERA to boot.

I actually really like Slowey next year if he can stay in the rotation the rest of 2008. Maddux, Jr. (Greg, not Mike)

I would compare Kevin Slowey to Andy Sonnanstine... they both have the really low BB rate and a decent K rate, making for a great K/BB. Both will also have a good whip in general, I'd say 1.2-1.3, but ERA will be high, at least 4.5 I'd say. HRs, through the roof too, neither can keep the ball in the yard.

Slowey was awesome in the minors. 0.43HR/9. Way over 2.00 in the majors I believe.
Adjustment is needed.

his next start is at home on Tuesday against a weaker Toronto Blue Jays, who are now without Vernon Wells. is that a game one could consider picking up/starting Slowey?
over his brief career he has been better at home (3.82 ERA/1.12 WHIP) compared to on the road (6.03 ERA/1.58 WHIP)
next Tuesdays game is a night game which he is better in (3.48 ERA/1.07WHIP) compared to during the day (6.10 ERA/1.57 WHIP)
his rough career numbers against the Jays (7.20 ERA/ 2.00 WHIP) was largely because of his numbers against Wells (3/3, 1 HR, 3 RBI) ..where against other Jays he has only given up 1 hit each to McDonald, Lind, and Rios.
Slowey so far this season in the majors and minors has a problem with giving up HR's..
AAA- 5 IP, 2 HR
Twins- 8.3 IP, 3 HR
..maybe thats because he is often around the plate?
is he worth a pickup for the Toronto game? or even a standard 5x5 12 team league?
