Troy Percival- Expectations??

Postby ajgnydc722 » Tue Mar 30, 2004 10:34 pm

I was thinking about dealing for Percival because I'm a little short on saves. My friend mentioned to me recently some rumors about him having some arm trouble and in danger of losing his job to K-Rod or Donnelly before he got hurt. Just wondering...what are your expectations for Percival this season with the revamped Angel team??

No, he won't lose the job if he's healthy.

Yes, he is a close to a top 5 closer when healthy.

But no, he won't stay healthy for the entire season.

He got eye surgery during the off season so he should get better because of that. I have him and am confuident for at least 40 saves.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

I like Percy as a value pick this year. No way he loses his job if healthy, he's just too good. And with Anaheim improved, 40 saves is within reach. Just have to cross your fingers on his health.

That's my take too. ;-D

I got Sir Percival down for 36 or 37 saves if he stays healthy.

However, I think he's going to hit the DL at some point and wind up with 28 saves.

I think Percival is going to be injured fairly early in the season, face it, the dude's old and is more worried about staying healthy than playing baseball...not a good formula, ask Griffey or Drew.

That being said, my question is, who would be next in line for saves? I have heard both Donnelly and Francisco Rodriquez mentioned. I drafted K-Rod in the last round of my draft in the hopes it is him, but also b/c i had an extra roster spot and he helps in ERA/WHIP and Ks. Anyone have any thoughts/inside info about who would take over? If memory serves me correctly, Donnelly got the nod last year when Percival was down, and did well...but I also know that K-Rod is thought of as the team's future closer, so I guess it will just be a management decision?

- Michael

p.s. Ordinarily I wouldn't be following a closer's potential injuries this closely, but Anaheim has a great team this year and respectable (though not great) starting pitching, so I think their closer, whoever it turns out to be, will be very valuable this year.

he's one of the few guys that can still throw 100+ . I remember last season he went upwards of 103 MPH

i would only be giving up aj burnett (maybe out till june) and mike macdougal (not even closer/healthy) so i think he's definately worth the risk of what i've heard here.

Oh yah! Burnett and MacDougal are marginal players. Percival has solid value.
