Adam Eaton coming around?

Postby Berge20 » Mon Jun 28, 2004 11:27 pm

I had some expectation from this guy at the beginning of the year, then May happened.

June is a total turn around for this guy. Anyone acutally see him pitch? I'm an east coster and havent had much of an opportunity.

Saw him pitch at Yankee Stadium. He was brilliant against them. He is an excellent guy to have. First two months I played matchups with him but now that he's pitching well I've reaped the benefits. He's a nice 4th or 5th starter in some mixed leagues but is most likely gone in deep ones or NL only.

Forget the man crush. I drop what I'm doing to watch Zack Greinke pitch.

He kept is k/bb ratio in very good shape during that tough period so that signal the turn around. As Kolb said, he IS around

I had him at the beginning of the season when he got rocked. I then dropped him and no one touched him. After his great start against the Yanks I picked him back up and I'm LOVING him. He has been pitching jem after jem. Go get him if you can! ;-D

Yes you did, lol. I remember reading that thread right after I dropped Eaton. I was crossing my fingers that no one would grab him off the WW...I got lucky ;-D

arg, waited too long. I had my eye on this guy for the past 3 weeks. I was hopin no one would touch him due to his still high era. However, some stupid kid read one of the yahoo articles about hot/not and now picked the guy up... I was usin the FA as an extra roster spot. :~(
