revisiting David Bush

Postby perlick29 » Tue Jul 20, 2004 5:02 pm

Hmm, I told myself that he was a good pitcher and I asked everyone here for a little help on him. The response I got was mixed so I let him go. He's still unowned in my league, but not for long.

Last check he has a no hitter tru 6ip, with 5 k's.


Gentlleman start your engines, this is no fluke, he's legit.

Oh by the way, Harden has a 1 hitter.

Triple-A Syracuse righthander David Bush allowed six earned runs on 10 hits in five innings and still got the win, as the Sky Chiefs downed Charlotte, 10-6. Exclusively a closer in college, the Blue Jays moved him into the rotation last season. Bush tends to leave his fastball with average life (at 88-92 mph) over too much of the plate and gets hit hard. He's getting hit hard this season, giving up 71 hits in 59 innings. This season, Bush is 4-4, 5.34 with 54 strikeouts

You mean this guy? Fluke in my book. Give him a couple more starts.

Alright well this from Baseball Prospectus before the season began. "A college closer turned starter picked out of Wake Forest in 02'. After suffering from blood clots in his leg, Bush dropped into the second round, pleasing the Jays to no end. He was supposed to be a two-pitch pitcher, but he's exceptionally efficient with his pitches, has yet to struggle, and he's picked up a change and improved his command of his darting slider with the repetition that comes from starting. He's also favored for his confidence and poise. A Keeper."

Ok, he struggled in AAA this year but he hasn't in the bigs really in his first two and now three, (no-hitter thru 7 now by the way) starts.

Yeh, he had a few problems but that was high holy praise from the high hliest of sources. A KEEPER, for real.

Just making recommendations, do what you will with them.

Bush did fan 88 in 96 AAA innings while walking only 22. His H/IP were high, but the K/BB and K/9 were strong.

Dave Bush did not allow a hit for 7 1/3 innings in Oakland. Damian Miller singled in the eighth frame to break up the no-no.
