Do you think Scherzer will put it together? -- WHIR

Postby Bolthead04 » Sat Jun 11, 2011 1:37 pm

I picked up Max Scherzer in a trade just recently as a throw in. I figured he would have a chance to work through his junk and get right in time for my playoffs. However, everyone I talk to and a number of experts keep talking about how Scherzer has red flags and what not. So, I'm debating whether to stick with him or to package him in a trade.

I'm actually sitting him today against Seattle, which is a comment on my faith in his current playing ability.

WHIR as always if you link me. :)

I actually started him today, that lineup is weak.

"Experts" have had problems with him for years and anytime a guy is struggling they tear his whole game up. He will get better, he did this last year too, as long as there isn't an injury or anything. Which I haven't heard about one.

I'd start Matt Scherzer today, he'll get it together. Just will take awhile.

Scherzer will be fine, IMO, they recently talked about how they found a flaw in his delivery when watching some video. He'll fix it and go back to his regular bad-azz self.

What are those red flags?
His babip is a little high, .333.
His xFIP is 3.80, good, not great.
If you bench him against Seattle, there's no point in keeping any SP.
I only bench guys versus NYY, Boston, Cincy, Cards, Coors.

For the record, I have wins, ERA, Ks, and WHIP locked up. Really, I'm just not messing with it. I may or may not start Marcum tomorrow if he piles on the Ks today, but I'm mostly avoiding an ERA/WHIP jump. (1.57 and 0.92 for the week)

My wording in post 1 was funky I guess. :P But I'm sitting him mostly to preserve a lead. If I'm up comfortably in Ks tomorrow, I'll sit Marcum too. :)
