Will Clemens get shelled at Coors?

Postby Jean » Sun Apr 18, 2004 10:52 am

Clemens' start next week is at Coors field. Is it too risky to start him there? I'm imagining the Astros are going to score about 1000 runs per game and that he'll get the win, but will he give up a lot of long balls?

no. Always start your studs, and Clemens is a stud.

If his splitter doesn't drop like usual, he might give up a few bombs. I think he'll do fine though. Should get a win anyway. :-)

He's a little more vulnerable but I would say less so than other pitchers. I doubt he will have a sharp splitter in that thin atmosphere but at least he can just pump 95mph fastballs all day.

Yeah, and it worked out great for Webb, right? 6 IP, 7 H, 2 ER, 4 BB, 3 K, no decision. All things considered, a very mediocre performance. And this is a guy with a 3.06 GB/FB ratio we're talking about, a perfect pitcher for Coors.

My experience is that very few pitchers have dazzling performances at Coors, but plenty get shelled. There's a lot of risk and not much potential reward. I'd sit Clemens.
