Yes, because Halladay is certainly showing signs of slowing down... :-?

No doubt Halladay has the inside track with his history and stuff. Verlander is an exeperienced major leaguer now, though, so maybe he has learned what he needs to do to stay strong all season. I love the way he is pitching right now, but before I could say Cy Young and Verlander in the same sentence I have to see how well he does when his stuff is there. Cy Young winners give up 4-5 when they are off, Verlander's April ERA was 6.75 which suggests that when he is off he is awful.

He adjusted his arm angle during spring training. During his first 4 starts he allowed 21 ER. Then after his fifth start (7 IP, 0 ER, 9 K), he said he finally got comfortable with the new arm angle, and has rattled off 9 QS in a row since then (most of them absolutely filthy, allowing 2 ER or less in 8 of the 9), so I tend to buy his explanation. So I don't think you can take that 6.75 ERA is an indication of what its like when he is off. He seems to have become comfortable with the new arm angle and hasn't been off yet since he has. Not saying he won't ever be off ever, just don't think we have an indicator yet of what it will be like with the new angle.

I think Leyland is trying to kill this guy. I wouldn't necessarily say he is a sell guy, but I definetly don't want him for next year.

is what I said...stop tryin to put words into my mouth buddy...

It's bc of people like you that I end up winning my leagues with such ease...always overvaluing pitchers after good back to back starts or after a hitter has an incredible week numbers wise...Keep it up bc this is when the snake bites!

Verlander for CY Young: 269K's! Per outflow

Look for me in September (I will be here) and I will challenge and prove you otherwise! MONEY!


Where is RenPastana??????
How many K's has Verlander ended the season on? OOOOOOOOOOOOwwwwwww 269.

Mod Edit---Really what was the point of that.


Honestly....read back on a few of those threads I'm talking about and you will see. Hey, I'm sorry there are few people from earlier this year that need to be called out.

You got nothing. hahahahahhaa.




I got you thinking Verlander ends up with 269K's...I am going to enjoy the feedback and laughs from all over the cafe over this one... :-b

Also, Put down Harden to end with 3K/IP...great logic dude!


another gem from a topic peppered with them.
