Is it time to say bye-bye to Nate Robertson?

What say you Cafe? Is Robertson's run over? He was awful against the BoSox today...

the guy seems to have really fallen apart. Detroit is coming back to earth as far as their pitching goes...bench until he has another couple of good starts but don't count on it

I'm still hanging onto him, Nate is a very solid source of Ks and except for a few rough outings he has been very good all year. I think someone's post a little ways back about him being underrated jinxed him. :-/

I rode Nate earlier in the season, but he's a rookie pitcher. They all break down in the 2nd half (see Willis, Dontrelle and Webb, Brandon). The workload is just too much.

I wouldn't expect very consistant numbers for the rest of the 2004 season, but he's a good pitcher to keep a watch on for 2005. He should be golden next year. A solid sleeper.

Yeah I think it's safe to drop Robertson. I dropped him the second I heard about Noah Lowry last week from the cafe. Robertson will be a good late round or watch list material next season.

Robertson's K rate is down and my best guess is he's tired.

In terms of replacement for Nate, keep an eye on who's going to replace Brad Penny's spot in the rotation - probably Alvarez or Carrera, both are pretty good.

his getting hit hard now though and his k-rate is still down, id keep him for another month and see what happens, though he still is dominant vs left handers. Leftys r just hitting .213 vs Robertson so that might be a good sign.

D'oh. I was the one who started the most recent thread. :-/

That was probably the worst thread I've started at the Cafe. The reactions were all pretty much of two types. Either people said, 'this is old news, we're on the Robertson wagon' or 'Robertson is finished'; i.e., uninteresting or wrong.

I'm going to keep him on my bench for now. He has another tough start coming up (at ANA), but after that the matchups look a lot more favorable. That was actually part of the point of the other thread I brought up.

But ugh, yesterday was not pretty.

He's had a pretty good season, but it looks like he's tired out. I expect that by September, he will be given a reduced role (or even shut down altogether) while a callup is given a look in the rotation.
