Another good outing for Webb

Postby tmoney » Fri Jun 25, 2004 9:11 pm

Webb looked great tonight. He pitched 8 innings, threw 100 pitches, and posted a solid 2.25 ERA, 0.75 WHIP. Only had 4 k's, but he looked really solid. I have been saying this since he had that string of bad games about a month ago, and have taken some heat for this, but trade for him now. He will be a great second half performer. The only down side I dont like is that he is not getting much run support.

He's like Zack Greinke of the NL. Above average pitcher with no offense behind him.

Not really worth owning in a 10-team 21-player/team league

He was always going to come solid. No way you fluke a season like he had last year, just going through a common second year regression.

I've picked him up off waivers in two leagues so I've got him in 4 out of 5 teams now. As you say, the big downside is his non-existent run support.

No offense, but I think this is an unfair comparison. As numbers go, sure Greinke is actually better, but Webb already has one great year under his belt. Yeah he lacks run support, but I am a LOT more sold on Webb than Greinke, who really could get lit up at any time as far as I'm concerned.

Mainly it's just that Webb has logged a LOT more major league innings. Incidentally, I do think that he's worth owning in a 10 team 21 player league, if only as a number 5 starter.

I'm looking for an ERA around 3 the rest of the way out and 8 to 10 wins. He just had a rough 3 or 4 week stretch. He'll settle down.

sorry to hear that, no intention on my part to rub salt in your wounds.

I owned both Greinke and Webb until about a week ago before dropping them both - and no taker so far for either one in my league.
