# of good starts needed for pitcher to increase trade value

Postby Guest » Tue Apr 06, 2004 10:59 am

For middle tier pitchers like CC Sabathia, Kip Wells etc. who are coming off a great first game performance. How mnay good starts do you think they need before their trade value is almost on par with some of the stud pitchers. It's too early to start offering CC and a medicre player for Halladay or Oswalt but when is it not too soon.

To be on par with the studs they will need to display it for an entire year, or sometimes more.

How many consider Loaiza on par with the studs?

Loaiza was downright horrible before last year though. CC and Wells have been pretty good before this year and both are young.

Stud pitchers have been doing it for a long time, and everyone has confidence in them. Up and comers maybe just as good, just takes time to develop that kind of confidence. I would say that if a guy does it until the all-star break, they are pretty solid. But then they have to reprove themselves to me the next year with a strong start, maybe 2 or 3 for a guy like Loiza. After two years they are bonafied stud until they prove me wrong.
