Contreras

Postby beltrans_boy » Fri Apr 23, 2004 2:24 pm

He's a no-go for me today against Boston. Should I try to ship him out? He gives me a really uncomfortable feeling everytime he has a start for my team! If I do decide to trade him, what could I expect to get in return?

I also am sitting Contreras today. I still think he will put together a good season, so I am not about to trade him away yet. Because he is still sort of unproven to a lot of people and he has yet to pitch well this season, I doubt that you will get much for him at this point.

Look at Contraras's splits. He's gold at home. You sit him at your own peril.

And don't be ridiculous and trade a guy after only two starts. You got to be smarter than that.

I'm starting him.

Eventhough his ERA vs Boston is over 20.00. I just think the Yankees are due to bust out vs the Sox.

I don't think I'll be able to watch it though. Starting him with eyes closed.

I wouldn't trade or dump him yet I still think he will have a nice year, but tonight against the Sox isn't the place or time to hope for a good outing. Wait for him to play a weak team, start him, and hope that one good game will help turn things around for him.

Another player who is heavily affected by temperature if you ask me - the hotter it gets, the hotter he gets.

And for those of you looking to drop him - thanks. Ill grab him just like last yr. You do remember last yr, right - same sort of scenario except he isnt coming out of the bullpen first.

I'm benching him. #1 WHIP, ERA finally under 4, hell no.

Believe it or not, Contreras didn't face Boston at home last year in a start, period. There's just something about him and Boston for some reason.

The hot/cold thing really might have some effect, because if you look at his splits, he's a better player in the daytime (when it's usually warmer). It might be because Cuba's hotter, so he's more used to warm weather. I may be reaching here with the weather stuff, but I'm still going to bench him.

I'm starting him. Call my crazy but he has good #'s when pitching at home.
