Jerome Williams!

Postby Mr. Smithers » Sun Apr 25, 2004 1:38 pm

Someone just droped Jerome Williams for Jason Johnson. I thought this was not very smart. I put a waiver priority on him but I am at 9 so I dont think I will get him. Does anybody agree with me that this was not the best move for the other manager.
Baseball is the only field of endeavor where a man can succeed three times out of ten and be considered a good performer.

Anything that involves have Jason Johnson on one's roster is a mistake in and of itself. Jerome is a solid pitcher and should be used in all home starts and other favorable matchups (ie. @SD, @LA).

So yeah, bad move, and you might get him with your #9 priority.

Not only is it a bad move but it's absolutely bizarre from a timing standpoint, since Williams just won his third last night and almost had a complete game.

one guy in my league dropped him for jason marquis then dropped marquis for jaret wright then dropped wright for schoeneweis then dropped schoeneweis for claudio vargas, so he basically dropped jerome for vargas... yes, he started this whole process about a week ago, so jerome has been there for a while... after lastnight i've been thinking of picking him up too, but i'd have to drop herges, pineiro or woody... it would be so much easier if tex and nomar weren't sittin on my bench... maybe i can wait a week or so until one of the comes off the dl and go after jerome, if he's still there, for one of my replacement players...

but yes, i agree, dropping williams for jason johnson is a mistake...

i was thinking that too, but i started looking at their numbers side-by-side and their not too far apart. of course woody hasn't thrown as many innings and hasn't won a game yet but they're just about even as far as K's ER and bbi... couple that with the fact that woody is still basically in spring training due to his slow start after surgey this offseason...

i guess the only differences i see are that woody's about 100 years old and the giants offense sucks...

I'd have kept Jerome and would certainly put in the waiver claim for him. :-)
