What happened to Zach Britton?

Postby Y`s Guy » Mon Jul 04, 2011 5:30 pm

Looking for a fan's perspective.

All World in April. Pretty good in May. Decent in June. But only 2 wins in his last 12 starts after starting out 4 - 1.

He gets raves from the guys on MLB Network yet there he is on the WW. Looking like a steaming hot ear of sweet butterry corn :-L

Interestingly, if you take away two bad starts on May 29 and June 3 his overall ERA in the other 14 starts in 2.81.

Just coming back down to where he should be. He's a much better real life pitcher than fantasy due to the lack of strikeouts but pitching in a hitters park in the AL East isn't something I'm looking to scoop up...if I could get him for free though, I would.

Since much of what I wrote before still applies, I'll link to a cafe article from the end of May where I looked at Britton in some detail. Hope it is of some use.
