I am very high on Wolf this year, so much so that I will happily begin my "Randy Wolf" campaign, here on this very sight:
I have tried to read as much as possible on Randy this year, as I am trying to decide to keep him. I truly believe that he is ready for a bust out season. He had the eighth worst run support in the NL Last year. That will change. He will be the second starter thanks to Millwood. The last two years he has got off to a slow start. Funny though is that from his high school days through AAA he was known as a fast starter. Expect a fast start. He only turned 27 at the end of last season and will have 4 years experience vs. the NL East, lowering his ERA every year. Look for that to be similar to last year. Randy dominated after the break last year. 15 games started after the break last year he had a 2.10 era and allowed a batting avg. below .200 but got only seven wins. (see above)
Sorry if I sound like a Phillies hack but I am not. In fact, I think that the whole team will be over priced this year so I intend to stay away. I am however very high on Randy in '03 and plan on protecting him on my roster. At any cost.
Hope this helps.
