Buying window closing: Gavin Floyd

Postby AussieDodger » Fri Apr 30, 2010 2:06 pm

6.49 ERA 1.67 WHIP (3.71 FIP, 47% GB :-L )

Just shut down Texas @ Texas.

He obviously takes a little while to get all his pitches in line (April 2009: 5.52 ERA 1.77 WHIP), most likely because he seems to use 566077 different pitches. :-b

Go buy him now now NOW! ;-D ;-D

While I don't disagree with this, TEX was minus Cruz, Kinsler and Salty (Whether he's better than Traenor who knows).

Floyd's next start is home v. KC

Floyd is too leaky of a vessel to holdany fantasy hopes in. He is too inconsistent, and there are too many other better options on the waiver wire.

I had him marked as a breakout at the beginning of the year but he just hasn't been pitching like himself. Would he really be much better than WW options such as Jaime Garcia, Shaun Marcum, or C.J. Wilson? Im not so sure...

While his BABIP is high, his LOB% is actually quite low (average is around 70%). Not sure what you meant by posting those...

Exactly. That low strand rate is pretty unsustainable. Once it normalizes he'll strand more runners, meaning fewer runners will come around to score.

Not me. He officially lost his start to the revolving door today for me. Peripherals and luck be damned, he's just looked so...hittable.
