Pedro

Postby yeyo44 » Thu Feb 26, 2004 1:57 pm

So in watching an interview with Pedro I notice a happier pedro, one that says his velocity has gotten faster. I'm really banking on pedro this year. He has a better bullpen behind him. Is it far off to predict these #'s for him:


W L K IP ERA WHIP

20 5 250 240 2.00 1.02


Just my prediction.

Fewer IP, higher WHIP. Otherwise those numbers are right on, provided he doesn't get hurt. But asking Pedro not to get hurt is asking a TON out of him...

There's no way he gets 250 innings so that in turn makes his strikeout number high as well. Sox will not overwork him for fear that he'll be injured for their playoff run.

I'm very worried about injuries with Pedro. I'm not drafting him unless he falls to Round 3 (which obviously isn't likely)

I don't think he'll pitch 240 innings. And if he did then his K's would be higher. But I do expect him to pitch over 200 innings. He has to prove to the world he isn't a six inning pitcher. And I think he'll do it and have the best year in 5 years.

That ERA, for him, in the American league is ridiculous. 20-5? 1.02 WHIP? You’ve been cowboyin’ up too much buddy.

Been watching much baseball the last few years? If he's healthy 20 wins is pretty much a lock. His career WHIP is 1.01 and his ERA the last 3 years has run in the 2.20-2.30 range.

I only watch Yankee games Guest, and in those he’s pretty mediocre, especially in the last one. (Just kidding about the first part)

Pedro has won 20 games or more for only two of his 10 seasons as a starter. Over the past three seasons, his ERA season is closer to 2.30. And a 2.30 is NOT a 2.00 starter. Those are two different neighborhoods. Both posh, but different classes nonetheless.

You say “if he stays healthy” like that’s a given. He will take at least 1-2 trips to the DL this year.

He has never pitched 250 innings. He has not pitched 200 since 2000. His most is 241 – 7 years ago.

And since you asked, he’s only 4-4 in 14 starts over the past 3 years against the Yankees.

But, hey, if you want to draft him, he's a good pick. Not a first round pick. You could get him in the second round if you had the 10th 11th 12th pick.
