Vazquez, Shields, Romero, Kennedy?

Postby BALCO All-Stars » Fri Mar 11, 2011 10:55 pm

14 team, 1250 Max IP, 40 transactions each year, standard W/K/SV/ERA/WHIP

SP so far: Hamels, Cain, Dempster
RP so far: Putz, Nunez, McGee

Looking for my fourth starter:

Vazquez - awful last year at NYY, but it's definitely the outlier in his career. Lost velocity on fastball but his last spring outing he was coming in at 90-91 consistently...if velocity is back he could be a solid SP.
Shields - bad luck last year, increased K rate last year, could bounceback
Romero - very good in his second year last year, third year can be a possible breakout candidate...has some serious control issues though
Kennedy - originally targeted Kennedy as my #4, very solid last year, weaker NL West division...very unproven.

Thoughts? I'm really starting to lean towards Vazquez as an upside play...right now I have them:

Vazquez
Kennedy

For me it would be a choice between Vazquez and Shields and I would have to go with Shields. Javier will be turning 35 this year, the off year could be him turning the corner for his down slide.

Go with Shields. He's always been a consistant pitcher, whether in relief or as a starter. Javier has always been inconsistant.
