Is it safe to say he has fixed his problem he had earlier in the year?He has pitched great his last three outings if he continues the way he is pitching against Boston.

hahaha...beat you too it by a minute!!!

posted the same exact thing, so I will copy and paste it here and delete mine..

I snagged him off waivers when somebody dropped him when he was demoted to AAA..

He is in his 3rd start..I started him at SF, but benched him against TOR and now BOS..Is he back to form?

Despite 10 hits against SF, he has pitched very very well, 13 k's in 13 innings..Currently 5th inning, 5 k's 1 hit(HR)..

I believe he is safe!!!

Same situation for me. Picked him up when he was dropped after his demotion. I'm encouraged and I feel like he is back. ;-D

I'm hoping I have my own trifecta of Liriano, Scherzer and Nolasco. :-)

That said, I did dump Slowey after his first two 5 ER starts. :-/

having nolasco be an ace for my team would be huge..Dont have the strongest rotation, but with him it would be just fine...

Without any rainouts or hiccups his next fout starts are @ Ball, Wash, PIT, @ ARI...Then ASB

Could be nice stretch for him!

Well, since I already posted in the other thread, I'll just copy it here.


Sat him? Shame on you for not having faith in Nolasco (lol). I've thrown him out there for all 3 starts. All quality starts with a nice amount of K's. He's back. Tonight's game was a complete game for him (5 inning rain shortened but who cares). 1 run, 1 hit, 5 K's against one of the top 3 offenses in baseball. Two of my league-mates live in the Boston area and watched the game. They said he was nasty (one of them actually dropped him when he was demoted to the minors and now regrets it big-time as I picked him up), and was in complete control. They felt he would have pitched 7 innings and would not have allowed any more runs, as the Boston hitters looked helpless against him. That's coming from 2 Boston fans.

The 1st place team in my most important league cut him, that team is short on arms, I promptly added him after his first AAA start, and now have him tucked safely behind Billingsley, Josh Johnson, John Lackey along with Jordan Zimmerman (about time his ERA works its way down to his FIP!). Anyways, maybe I'll dangle Nolasco back to the first place squad, HA.
