Acevedo...

Postby BoSox4life » Wed Jun 09, 2004 11:35 pm

I just watched him get lit up by the A's...killed my WHIP and ERA. Anyway, what are your thoughts on him? Is he going to keep on getting killed or will he turn it around? Is he supposed to be a decent pitcher?...I hadn't heard much at all about him until this year.

I was a big supporter of him here at the cafe...that is until tonight...i dumped him. I don't like to overreact...but man he single handedly raised my ERA from 4.07 to 4.17 in just 3 innings. (roto league) Between him and Contreras, and Jimenez, I've learned to never add another Jose to my pitching squad. They all suck.

Can anyone seriously think of a good Jose pitcher? I mean I know Jose Guillen on the offensive side...but every Jose pitcher is absolutely terrible. Acevedo I used to like, but adios Jose.

Wow a Reds fan dropping his team's best starter. 8-o

He's a solid starter. My only league is 16 teams and I view him as a very nice #4/5 starting option.

4.256 ERA 1.18 WHIP -- Not bad at all. One bad start. Very solid K:BB ratio (coming into 2nite, over 4:1). You're definitely overreacting.

Only reason I'd even consider dropping him is if it were a 10-team or under league or one where starters aren't valued greatly.

I may be overreacting I guess....but he was borderline on my team to begin with, so the 8 ERs just put me over the edge.

I will still watch him, but he will need 2-3 consistent starts before I pick him up again.

It's not so much the A's offense as the real Cincy pitching showing it's true colors. Mark this as the beginning of the end for the Reds this year. They'll battle Pittsburgh for the cellar come September.
