Someone who finally pitches well at Coors consistently?

Postby DK » Thu Sep 16, 2004 11:56 am

Of course, I'm talking about Joe Kennedy.

H/A splits:
Code: Select all
Place   G GS W L SV CG SHO IP    H  R ER HR BB K  ERA    WHIP BAA
Home   12 12 5 1 0  0  0   69.2 74 27 27  8 27 48 3.49    1.45 .270   
Away   12 12 3 5 0  0   0  71.2 71 31 29  6 26 55 3.64 1.35 .268


Now, he's allowed more HR and BB while less K's at Coors, so some of his ERA is definitely accountable to luck there. But he's still pitching lights out for Coors Field!

Anyone else keeping him on their radar in case he goes to a pitcher-friendly park?

I am DK. He had a ton of talent with the Rays and they let him walk right out the damn door. Oh well, nice job Rox on getting him, and def. worth a look on your radar screens.

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

hes on my radar for the future for mixed leagues but not while hes at Coors. :-o hes just 25.

i already have him in my only NL league. 1hr/9 at Coors is pretty nice tho. ;-D
[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]

Be careful, though. Remember the last pitcher to do decently well at Coors? That was Shawn Chacon, who as we all know is now tearing it up at closer. :-D Now if Kennedy leaves the Rockies, look for him to do decently. But if stays at Coors, stay away! You never know whats gonna happen there.

But good find, DK ;-D

Kennedy has good stuff, no argument there. But he's been very fortunate to have maintained this home ERA this season. Note the 1.45 WHIP at Coors. That's a telling stat to me, and an ominous sign for those who somehow get sold on obtaining Kennedy for next season if he's still with Colorado.

And so yet again, I'll say that I have no interest in owning any Colorado pitcher, and can't for the life of me understand why anyone does.

It's an exeedingly small sample size to make any judgements on how well he will do there. Remember Mike Hampton started out 8-3 for the Rockies. The only Rockies pitcher to do well at home was Pedro Astacio. And it was because he wasn't afraid to throw strikes and strike people out.

The Rockies will never be good unless they can develop strikeout pitchers. Pitchers that rely on fastballs and not breaking stuff or changeups.

I was about to mention Chacon..... everybody thought he'd solved Coors :-o A 7.62 ERA at home along with a 1:1 K/BB ratio, and all of a sudden he hasn't solved much at all.
