Contreras Pitching Today

Postby GrimZeke007 » Sat May 22, 2004 11:35 am

Contreras went 1-2 with a 9.47 ERA in five starts before being sent to the minors, where he worked with Billy Connors, the organization's pitching guru. Contreras worked on his mechanics and his aggressiveness for a few days in Tampa, then made two starts for Triple-A Columbus, throwing seven innings in each, both wins. By Mark Feinsand / MLB.com

If you are considering starting Contreras against a red hot Texas offense in the ballpark in Arlington.....I would call you a wacko.

Agree. I've got him in a league or two (call me crazy), but I'm sure as heck not starting him tonight. He'll probably get some work against the devil rays or something :-B

It's Ameriquest Field, not TBIA. You're not exactly Mr. Current Affaris, are you slomo (20 points to whomever can name that quote)

Actually, there is a small pact of sports reporters in the DFW area who refuse to refer to it as Ameriquest Field, so I am doing the same...until I can remember that damn name anyway.

It will always be the Ballpark in Arlington to me. :-)
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.....

Haha, you're crazier than I am. I traded him anyways, but he wouldn't have been in my starting lineup today if I owned him. Good call though, but be careful with him....starting him is like betting on either red or black in roulette.
