I dropped Loshe for him about an hour ago. Not a big loss if he doesn't perform well. Plus his next start is against the Brewers and that doesn't scare me too much.
Yes doctor, I am sick. Sick of those who are spineless. Sick of those who feel self-entitled. Sick of those who are hypocrites. Yes doctor, an army is forming. Yes doctor, there will be a war. Yes doctor, there will be blood.....
Riley is just getting his shot at the majors, and his first 2 starts were awesome. Perez has been talked about for 2 years now. I'm sure if he were a rookie doing what he's doing people would be talking about him as much as Riley. And Pittsburgh's run support isn't exactly top-notch, either.

Oliver has better stuff and is younger. Perez's potential to me is much better.
edited: i can see what your saying though, it's sad though that just cause riley is a new name though he would get more attention. i'm sure a lot of the new people in fantasy baseball or people in shallow leagues don't know who perez is that well either.
olly perez has some stuff, it's just whether he really buckles down and becomes a good pitcher. i think someday he'll be pretty good, the crapshoot is whether or not its this year.
near the end of 2002, maybe august or september, he had a good stretch where he had a 3.something ERA and a bunch of Ks, kind of like now. he ended up giving up runs in heaps and his era was 5.something.
what's encouraging this year is that his good start is in april, low BB numbers, and the reds arent exactly chopped liver in terms of an offensive opponent. even someone like sean casey can single or double you to death, adam dunn's hot, and he managed cincinnati twice in a row.
there was this pitcher last year who began a bigtime run after handling cincinnati twice in a row, would you believe that the pitcher i speak of is the mighty dontrelle willis?
Haven't I called this kid out forever? I've seen the guy pitch. He's got all the tools. I've liked his potential since I first heard of him. He's started to control his ability, harness his talent. I would not be surprised to see him break out, even on the lowly Pirates.
What's Pittsburgh's ballfield like? Favors hitters or pitchers?
