He was probably someone to sell high on, not because of a lack of talent but because of health concerns. Anytime you can sell a pitcher who was hurt the year before I think you go for it.

Wandy's career stats for April= 2.70 ERA, 1.11 WHIP. After April he is in the mid 4 to 5 in ERA and somewhere around 1.4-1.5 WHIP. These are his career stats. He is a fast starter and regresses almost every year, with a couple exceptions. Pointed this out on another post about a month ago.

i think when he started the season hot he was overrated and everyone was expecting him to continue that way. my expectations for him this season were to be a good pitcher at home. if you only start him at home he is a very valuable pitcher.

Note those home/away splits over the last three years. Start him at home and wait until he strings together another bunch of solid starts before starting him every day.

I don't think you'll have much luck trying to move him. Ride it out. Don't drop him. He's still a solid 4-5 starter.

I've had it w/ him. He's way to inconsistent for me.
I dropped him and picked up Kazmir...let someone else deal w/ the home/away nonsense.

Last year 3.48 ERA, 1.28 WHIP pre-break, 3.61 /1.35 post-break. Not that different. In fact if you look last year he alternated good and bad months the whole season. And if you look overall he got progressively better for the whole season each of the last 3 years in a lot of categories, suggesting his career averages really aren't a good judge of what he'd do this year since they displayed a steady progression toward getting better. When you take an average of data steadily trending in one direction you don't really get an accurate assessment of what to expect now. He had ERA's under 4 the last 2 years. Do you think the fact he had ERAs over 5 his first 2 years are useful in projecting expectations at this point? I sure don't, which is why I think in this case career averages are a poor measure to go by. Now if you want to argue he could end up somewhere in the range of the average of the last 2 seasons, I'm not going to argue about that, because that could turn out to be right.
