Where's the love for Oliver Perez?

Pirates are playing the AL west this year, so you'll have to wait a year or two before the Red Sox or Yankees come to town.

maybe

Postby JOEG » Sun Apr 25, 2004 9:44 pm

maybe in the World Series he might play those teams...... but i suppose that wouldn't concern his fantasy value and also common sense as the Pirates are far from the WS...

No way you can wait 2-3 more quality starts to grab this guy!!!!!! Thats a completely stupid thing to suggest.... unless you are in a dormant league or in a 4 team league he will be long gone ASAP, in other words even if you mom threw a Complete game shutout against one of the better linups and put up double digit K's also, she would be picked up in three seconds!!! This is and will be one of the best pitched games of the year and probably a better game then MOST stud pitchers will have!

Perez is an awesome pitcher. He will definetly have a breakout year. This is kinda meaningless, but in when simulated my season with the pirates on MVP Baseball, he won the CY Young.

I picked Perez of waivers last season when he was still in Sand Diego, waive him then picked him up again later down the road. He had good performances like he did today last year, granted he didn't pitch a complete game, but he had similar outings. 9K, 11K etc..

I hope he has a break out season, but I'm not going to dangle him out in front of good offenseive teams, until he pitches well against them. Cincy was on tear up until today, so I benched him

I'm not saying don't pick him up, I'm saying you can't flat out state that this guy is gonna be amazing after a couple of good starts.

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

Sorry Zito i misread you, i thought you meant wait on him to pick him up, i agree it's probably a mirage, but like Webb, Willis, Podsednik, and (insert breakout player here) you had to act on it fast or sit there all year and wish you would of had the balls! People are very quick to act on above average starts from pitchers, let alone GEMS! I would be surprised if there was any leagues he was a FA in tommorrow.... however after his next start that number might go up :-B

As much as I love Harden he has not been performing at all. Consider dropping him.

I don't know! He hasn't been doing that bad. And he gets more Ks than most pitchers. I was thinking Billy Koch or Valverde or Myers.

I would keep Harden around for a couple more weeks

Riley hasnt really done anything other then generate a lot of BS hype
