Hideo Nomo is an arscenist......From what I remember he broke out a while ago and then just BROKE



lmao :-]


Yeah really. 36 year old pitchers don't break out, they break down.

RAMBLE good to see you again. ;-D
Since both those guys are probably my 2 favs this year, i'm thinking how did you see my list? Or maybe i saw yours? ;-)

Peavy and OPerez were mentioned. I would say they both broke out big last year. I love Peavy, but his era of 2.27 was a tad misleading. His DIPS era was over 3. And i don't see how Perez can improve on his major league best k/9. Greinke seems a nice choice, and i like EJackson as well. I am surprised to see Escobars name so much.

Gil Meche.

After being sent down at midseason to get his head screwed back on, was lights-out for a no-offense Mariner squad down the stretch. And now they might score a couple runs ...

Thanks! I've been extremely busy, but it's good to be back.

And if Bonderman and Harden are two of your faves, then I think I'm on the right track! I'm guessing the Cafe mojo will keep growing for both those guys as draft dates grow closer.

The next step is for a contrarian to predict disaster for one or both, only to spend the season backtracking! :-D

Reitterate one that has been glossed over:
Got a good feeling about Adam Eaton this year. Also believe in Greinke.

Breakout?

Postby GreenMonsterGoon » Fri Dec 24, 2004 11:04 am

In my opinion Breakout means, when we all generally agree they are an elite player. I'd say we already agree Peavy is, Beckett was, and Odalis Perez could be.

True Breakouts:

Arroyo
Oliver Perez
D-Mat, Schilling, Beckett, and Papelbon - Wow!

I also like Bonderman and Harden. I added them late last season and they gave my team the boost it needed to win the league. Especially Bonderman with his 9K game in the last week of the season. A beautiful spot start!

Wouldn't you consider Oliver's season last year to be a breakout? You think he's going to blow that one away even? 8-o
