who likes dubose?

Postby sinicalypse » Fri Apr 30, 2004 4:43 pm

i was eyeing him in the spring when he had a nice K/BB thing going, like 24/6... his era was like 2 early, but got up into the 3s.

he got rocked early this year but has been pitching nicely lately. he gave up 2 to the mariners and got the W yesterday. that and the O's O seems competent and capable of giving good run support...

so has anyone either in baltimore or into baseball seen dubose pitch? is he worth picking up/holding on to and riding out as the season goes along for a 15+ win 3.something ~175-200+ K darkhorse this year?

or is this early season/spring training success just a smokescreen and will he plummet to 4.5era mediocrity sometime soon?

as an OREO fan i get to watch them play a lot - dubose is a solid pitcher - with that offense this year he should definitely get into double digit wins with probably a high 3's era - he did have a 3.79 era in about ten starts at the end of last year - however i doubt he will come anywhere near those K totals you are hoping for - he is not really a strikeout pitcher - he is one of these leftys who get by with changeups and spotting pitches

I love him I think he is way better than Matt Riley.

He has got great off speed stuff and if he stays ahead in the count he is pretty much unhittable. Consistency and backing his stuff is crucial to his success. He will have the odd rough outing but should be very solid overall.

Not a strikeout pitcher though.
