Kenny Rogers, The Roaster. Rosterable?

Postby Cyclone177 » Thu Jun 19, 2008 3:47 pm

I look at this guy's stats and all I see are 7 ip, 8 ip. Low ER's and some wins sprinkled in there.

Not a lot of K's, not alot of Walks. 5-4, and if the Tigers get hot? Who knows, the wins could start to increase.

What do you guys think?

The Gambler," is a play on country music star Kenny Rogers' trademark single The Gambler. He is also referred to as "The Roaster" by radio host Jim Rome in reference to the musician's restaurant chain Kenny Rogers Roasters

Sorry, I just thought everyone knew Kenny Rogers as "The Roaster". Anyway, do you see him getting worse as the year goes on because of his age, or getting better because the Tigers figure out how to hit.

His more common nickname is, "The Gambler" because of the Kenny Rogers song (and also because his starts are pretty hit or miss).

As far as his recent starts, I don't buy it. He still has pretty mediocre numbers for the season overall.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
