Keep an eye on Felipe Paulino

Postby AquaMan2342 » Sat Jun 05, 2010 12:24 am

Guy throws crazy heat and 5 of his last six starts have been of the quality variety. He still walks a bit too much for my taste and he probably won't help your WHIP, but if you're looking to take a gamble with the possibility of huge dividends, take a look at him.

I've been looking at him for the past couple of seasons, but every time I pick him up I get burned, or some dropkick manager demotes him to the bullpen. :-o

I was the recipient of the SF game performance :-P , but I'm still interested.

Been on my watch list since mid=April because of his stuff.

But every time I'm ready to add him, he goes and puts a stinker up (this has happened multiple times where I was all ready to add him with 1 more good start; then he blew the next start...)

Nabbed him for my 20 team dynasty league yesterday (thanks for the less than stellar performance Capuano) as I've kept a close watch on his recent performances. Not sold he's completely over any hump, but his recent starts do radiate some hope.

Sounds like Daniel Cabrera. Let's hope that's not the case. THIS IS THE YEAR lol

I personally think he could be an elite closer.

I disagree, at least for now. He supposedly doesn't have the strongest mental makeup as I've read blurbs about how he's lost his composure at certain points in the game where he'll abruptly walk a guy on 4 pitches, get himself into trouble w/o focusing, etc.

Gee maybe the Cabrera comparisons are apt.
