Can Contreras Turn it Around?

Postby Rohan » Mon Jun 07, 2004 1:19 pm

I'm in a 14 team league, and Contreras has good upside. He did pitch well against Texas and then Baltimore, but didn't look that impressive his last outing. After returning from the minors. He was one of the best Cuban pitchers in the league. What do you think of Contreras turning it around?

15-17 wins possible? 175 Ks?

In a 14-team league, yes. But still only as a spot starter.

Mitigating factor: there is a 50/50 chance he'll get traded in the coming months. It's uncertain whether or not he'll be a starter or MR. That could impact his value.

Well, he's 45 yrs old so I think he's passed his prime. :*)

so it's safe to say his stink in the minors did him no good and he wont be able to start where he left off last year???

I saw the subject of your post -- "Can Contreras turn it around?"

My first thought -- sure, but would Cuba take him back?

I say probably not, so the Yankees are stuck with him (doesn't mean you have to be though).

His command just isn't there. He'll have good outings, but when he's off, he's HORRIBLE. He's available in both my 15 and 18 team leagues, which pretty much tells the story.
