Axford Woes

Postby jefferey13 » Mon Apr 01, 2013 4:56 pm

Axford has 1 SV opportunity and 1 BS. Is this year a repeat? I took him fairly late hoping he would rebound and do something more like 2011.

It's the first game of the season and he struck out the side otherwise. I wouldn't worry quite yet.

Haha I did like the 3 K's. Maybe he wants the W?

The guy they have pitching the 10th, Henderson, is a guy I'm watching closely if Axford falls flat.

He hung a pitch and Fowler hit it out. He looked decent other than that. If he starts walking guys you start to worry, not from a solo shot. His command was ok today, not amazing but ok.

Axford and HR problems are definitely something to be worried about, but the ball must have been really flying in Miller park today 4 HRs and 2 of them were from Aoki and Fowler.

It really wasn't carrying, Aoki just squared up on it and Fowler absolutely destroyed that pitch. There were a number of long fly balls that go out in the summer but fell short today. This is April, pitchers leave a lot of balls in bad places in April.

Hmm, his 27 K/9 and 1.00 WHIP look pretty nice, but I admit his 9.00 ERA is ugly.

I'm here to help.

I don't know, but I just picked up Jim Henderson in two leagues. One of those leagues counts holds, the other league I'm desperate for saves. Might as well stash him for Ax insurance
