joe kennedy? he the real deal this time around?

Postby ddoggs71 » Mon Apr 26, 2004 5:04 pm

OK OK .. yes hes pitching in coors but hes won all 3 games hes started

17ks to 4bb

2.49 era against Dbacks, Dodgers and Astros.. not shabby at all

I would be dropping Reyes whom doesnt seem to care about coming back.. plus i have soriano and kaz so reyes would be bench or dh spot

any thoughts are appreciated...

or any other solid sleeper pitchers you can throw out there.. deep league so if you think they are worth a pickup most likely theyre gone already..

i can't really think of a colorado pitcher who has monopolized on a good start and kept his ERA under 4 with 15+ wins seeming to be a lock, but hey, this game can be a crapshoot at times and if the shoe fits, wear it until you feel a blister starting to form.

I think hes the real deal. he has faced good offenses and came through, hes also a strikeout pitcher......


......on the other hand, I Mike Maroth is one of my 3 favorite pitchers so go figuire.

I wouldn't drop Reyes and I probably wouldn't pick up Kennedy in mixed leagues.

Kennedy over the long haul is risky. The fact is, many pitchers start out well in Colorado (Hampton, Jennings, Chacon) but at some point, they get shellacked, they lose their confidence, and they lose their game. No pitcher has really had a good, full season in Colorado. I think the best year was Jason Jennings in '02, who went 16-8 with a 4.52 ERA. Next best season, ever, was Pedro Astacio, who was 17-11 with a 5+ ERA in '99 or '00.

Kennedy has as good of a chance as anyone, since he is great at inducing ground balls, and he doesn't walk many people. I just worry that he will play a game where the wind is blowing out to left field, he will give up nine runs off five homers in three innings and get all screwed up in the head.

My rule of thumb is to avoid Rockies pitchers. The risk is greater than the reward.

And I'm a Rockies fan!
