Ive said it over and over and over again here at the cafe and to the rest of the world. There is no more underrated pitcher then Randy Wolf. Wolf is a great pitcher, he often gets categorized into the lower tier section of pitchers such as Padilla, Traschel, Sabathia, Piniero, etc.
Wolf is way above those guys, he is the best pitcher on the phillies staff, he is better then Millwood and he was on his way to competing for a cy young last year and was an all star, however in the last few months of 2003 something happened to Wolf and he was not the same pitcher. Many thought he was possibly hiding an injury, however he was so bad and so not himself that it was obvious something was wrong. Coming into 2004, I had Wolf ranked in my TOP 20 starting pitchers, I still feel he is a top 20 pitcher right around #19 or so. Wolf is so underrated it makes me sad b/c he is one of my top 5 favorite players.
Randy is easily capable of
So far this year he has had LITTLE to no run support. Something like 4.4 runs o support per game and has had the bullpen blow a few games for him as well. How anyone can be 2-3 w/ a 2.90 ERA on that loaded Philly team is mind boggoling.
Wolf is a guy you should trade for right now, his low win total makes him a great buy low canidate and you will reap the beifets b/c Wolf is a legit #3 fantasy starter.
