Drop K Rod for Affeldt

Postby Guest » Sat Apr 03, 2004 3:46 pm

I nees one more starter. Please, Someone convince me why I should drop K Rod for Affeldt. As you can tell I'm leaning that way already. Why is he such a big prospect?

Don't do it!

K-Rod showed what he could do in '02. Imagine what a smarter, stronger K-Rod is capable of.

Affeldt is a good pitcher but, so far, he hasn't caught lightening in a bottle.

If Percy goes DL, K-Rod appears set to step into the Angels closer role.

Affeldt is a Big sleeper this year. He's got movement on every pitch he throws. I'm thinking with KC's offense he can post a nice win total, and plenty of K's

Fanstud, you forgot to mention that he has a mid 90's fastball. He has enormous fantasy upside with his strikeout potential. Last year he really struggled with blister problems but has some very impressive outings when healthy. By all reports he is now over the blister issues.

I'd take Affeldt over K-rod.
It's usually easier to get a decent RP than a SP,
and moreover, K-rod's ERA is not very impressive.
I would take Lidge, Valverde, or R Soriano over K-rod..
There should be some good RPs on WW anytime during the year.
