Better Second Half: Maddux or Trachsel

Postby Rohan » Thu Jul 15, 2004 3:04 pm

Trachsel has a better era than Maddux in the second half for the last 3 years. 2.75 compared to Maddux 3.12. Both statistically are a better second half pitchers. Which would you want?

Traschel, hands down. Maddux looks like he's fading a bit.

I like Maddux to rebound from a shaky first half. He should get good run support now that the Cubbies have now remembered to take their bats to the stadium every day. :*)

Maddux has his usual statline going, including an uptick in Ks from last year--except in HRs, he has been getting bombed like Jose Lima circa 2002. There is a strong chance that this HR problem is just coincidental bad luck--if the HRs are down, his numbers look pretty nice.

Maddux will rebound and half a decent second half. His ERA is very "not-maddux-like". If the Cubs give him a little run support, the Mad Dog will be his old self: dominant. IMO

i think Maddux will be slightly better.... i see him being very good for most of his starts and then blowing up for a couple against a good offensive team. the good news i think is that the Cubs are done with the Cards... :-°
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

They have two more games next week and then they're done, and as a Cards fan I'm glad, the Cubbies scare me their offense and SP will be dominant IMO the second half. 8-o
