I'm from SD remember watching Ollie last year. If he can get consistent control, he's going to be an k machine.


he already is a k machine which is why i'm so interested in him... but that career 4.65 ERA and 1.50 WHIP is awfully scary... are there any other believers in perez this year or should i pass?

yeah, it looks like he's also a walk machine.

Jake Peavy- this guy is already getting love in magazines and websites so it may be harder to snag him but he had 156 K's in 194 innings last year and is still only 22. (although it is INSANE to let a 22 yr. old pitch 194 innings)

Kurt Ainsworth- another guy with an improved offense that should help his overall numbers and before his injury last year- had 55 K's in just 68 innings.

Clif Lee- another guy the magazines seem to be hyping as a future ace for Cleveland so it may be a bit harder to get him but has shown poise and struck out 50 in just 62 inings last year.

I think I'll pass on Peavy this year. I like the guy, but that oblique strain could be trouble. There's too many others out there to warrant that type risk for me.

People in my league aren't real good with the pitchers, so I feel pretty good about any sleeper choices. Someone dropped Halliday after a couple of bad starts. I was 4th on the waiver list and I still got him!

If you play with such idiots- why even ask for advice?

I like Affeldt's odds of breaking out. Not sure about Beckett/Santana numbers; but solid.

This is who I would be looking at late. He still goes undrafted in most 12 team leagues.

i like Affeldt more than all other guys mentioned. Hés got the stuff, he got a surgery to remove that nail that gave him so much trouble, he´s got a great lineup with a park that moved the fences this year and he`pitches against Detroit, Minnesota and Cleveland.
