Waiver Wire Pitching Help

Postby polyphonic » Tue Mar 16, 2004 3:20 am

On my team, I have Cliff Lee, Kevin Correia and Tony Armas. I like Cliff Lee a lot. Tony Armas pitched well last year before he got injured. Correia looked pretty nice down the stretch for the Giants. Correia isn't guaranteed a spot in the rotation, but I *think* he'll beat out Tomko/Hermanson.

On the waiver wire, here's what I see:

Kris Benson: The perennial tease. Will he ever live up to his potential?

Other names: Zach Day, Paul Wilson, Josh Towers, Jeremi Gonzalez, Wilson Alvarez, Driefort... feel free to suggest other guys who I might not be noticing.

Who else is out there?
I don't like any of those guys over Armas and C.Lee.

Basically, everyone who has a starting job on a good team and/or has any recent history of success as a starter has been taken.

Benson is the guy I'd take out of that group.

Oliver Perez? Haven't heard if he has won a rotation spot yet, but he does get K's. If you have Lee I assume Ed Jackson is gone.

jackson and perez are both gone.

Would you take Benson over Correia? I really think Correia will win a spot, and his numbers last year are a lot better than Benson has ever put up.

Don't count out Hermanson. Alou likes him so far in ST.

I don't like Hermanson much. I'm from the bay area, so I watch a lot of Giants games, and I just don't like what I've seen from him.

Armas still has considerable injury risk, imo. You might look at the other Indian pitchers (Davis and Standford). The Orioles' Ainsworth, Riley, and DuBose often seem to be available.

Ainsworth is taken. Do you think Riley and DuBose will pitch well? I'm a little afraid to take unproven pitchers in the hitting-rich AL East.

Davis and Stanford interest me a bit, but they aren't big name prospects like Correia, Claussen, Edwin Jackson, etc. I worry about their ability to win games for the Indians, given the Indians lack of proven players at any position.

The 4 and 5 guys for the Twins are available, but they also have no track record and aren't high prospects.
