Alvarez a starter

Postby Apollo » Wed May 05, 2004 2:18 pm

Haven't seen this reported elsewhere, so... this is from Yahoo's player updates:

May 5 The Los Angeles Daily News's Tony Jackson reports Los Angeles Dodgers P Wilson Alvarez will replace P Jose Lima in the rotation for now, but manager Jim Tracy cautioned not to read this as a demotion for Lima. "I don't think (Lima) has been ineffective," Tracy said. "But you have to keep in mind that our fifth starter's spot is very interchangeable. We're not doing this because we feel Jose Lima has not done an effective job. He has done exactly what we wanted him to do."


I think with the way he closed out last year and has started this year, there's something magic in that LA water for ol' Wilson. His run is bound to give out eventually, but I think he'll be worth riding for a while until it does.

I picked him up, and if he's half as good as he was down the stretch last year (took me to a title in one league), I'll be very happy.
