Matt Riley- GO GET HIM NOW!

Postby magic » Sat Apr 17, 2004 6:07 pm

I've been scouting this guy in MLB archives- his curveball busts- his fastball is incredibly placed with serious pop. Javy Lopez said at the beginning of the year in an interview, "just wait and see how good this guy is."

He completely outmatched Delgado with his high inside heat and hard cutting slurve. Hinske and Delgado were a combined 0 for 4 with 4K at one point.

What are you waiting for?

A little more proof. But he does look like the came out of relative nowhere to succeed story of the year.

Who would you say has more upside - him or Brett Myers?

ok, i dropped casey blake for him (not much risk), but hopefully Riley turns out to be as good as the hype around here

Where would you place the Riley hype in comparison to Willis and Webb when they started last year?

Of those 3, I would drop Meche.

As for me...I do like what this kid has done so far, but the only pitcher on my team I would drop for him is Glavine. I guess I'll give him another start to see how he does. He will be facing Toronto again, so lets see how the Blue Jay hitters do the second time around. ;-D
