James Shields, sup dude?

Postby michaelyoung4prez » Mon Jul 27, 2009 9:26 pm

What is going on with this guy? I made a trade for him selling high on Wandy and Choo and I am kicking myself for it. Anyone seen him pitch lately?

Here's hoping he hits the DL and gets right for the last 5 weeks or so.

He was dropped in my league, and nobody put in a claim. 8-o

Posted a 1.42 WHIP in July. But he's had a high WHIP month before (1.46 WHIP in Aug 2008, 1.47 WHIP in July 2007) and bounced back to his normal self the very next month both times.

I took this guy, thinking I was getting a safe, solid SP. But he's been a disappointment. His BB/9 is over 2, and K/9 is down to barely a 6. That coupled with a babip of .312, which is also above his career avg, has made for an unimpressive first 4 months of the season. His LOB% is also a little high, at 74%, so maybe there is some reason for optimism. But it just seems to me that he's been way too hittable this year. I was expecting a whip of around 1.20 from this guy, and it just hasn't happened.

He's no longer a must start on my team, I'm not gonna play him vs NY or Boston the rest of the year.

I pretty much hate him!! (fantasy speaking of course!)
I was willing to give up the K's for solid ratios. We've gotten basically nothing from this scrub
