he looked fine, IMO the first batter of the game F'd him up, i forget who it was but it was a long grueling at bat, & schmidt threw a ton of pitches, ended up striking him out,

alot of seeng eye hits, & hits off the end of the bat, i would not be too worried, Im actually happy hes getting it out of his sytem now, then in yahoo playoffs

I was one who predicted a Schmidt collapse (well not collapse, but injuries...high risk player...become worse down the stretch) and was consequently flamed for this at about midseason. I bring it up again and we'll see if he continues his poor pitching.

I drafted him last year but this year I passed on Schmidt. I drafted Hudson and Santana before him this year. I was scared off by his preseason injury.

Schmidt was the best pitcher in baseball for 4 months. One fluke groin injury that could have happened to anyone, followed by 2 shaky starts, doesn't diminish what he's done, nor does it mean he's collapsed. Watch him throw 8 shutout innings his next outing. Schmidt's fine. If he weren't striking guys out maybe I'd worry. But he got 8 K's today in only 4 innings. I wish Schmidt owners in my leagues felt the same way as you goons so I could take him off their hands.

EDIT: According to Schmidt, he hasn't been "fully letting go" with the leg drive on his pitches because of a sort of mental block after the groin twist, so he hasn't been getting that extra bite that has made him the most dominant pitcher in the game. He should be back to Schmidt next outing. Unless you're an opposing hitter or a fantasy owner opposing the team that owns Schmidt, I wouldn't worry.

It's actually pretty amazing if you combine the stats for his last two ("bad") outings.

8 IP, 16 K, 3 BB, 1 HR

If you buy into DIPS theory, then K, BB, and HR allowed are pretty much the only stats that have predictive value. Hits and ER range widely from game to game.

Schmidt is fine. His next start's at Coors anyway, though, so benching him wouldn't be a horrible idea.
