He had a great start today,
And a win against Kerry Wood and the Cubs
This wasn't just one good start, even though it is the best of the season for him, he has pitched solid, and what do you guys think of him? I currently have Suppan and Chacon, and am in a dilemma of how good these guys are. Think he's worth a pick-up?, Thanks in advance
I think he's going to be a really nice surprise. I actually drafted him in the later rounds of my draft but I had to drop him for Braden Looper later because I seriously lacked closers and had an abundance of starters. I would get him again, but he's already gone... awwww
I picked him up off free agents befre the season started. His last few starts of last year were great, and this year he's pitched exceptionally also. Wins might not be so easy to come by tho, with him being on the Padres.
He made the Cubs look BAD today. Which may or may not be saying something, as the Cubs have looked like Dr. Jekyll and Mr. Strikeout for the past couple years. But the broadcasters were comparing him to Mark Prior the way the ball seems to explode the last 20 feet to homeplate. I wouldn't drop an established pitcher for him at this point. And choosing him over Suppan or Chacon is pretty much a toss-up. Any of those 3 pitchers could be the next coming of Nolan Ryan, or perhaps the next coming of Kip Wells, or just the next big washout.
If you have someone like, say, Ted Lilly or John Lackey crowding your bench, it's probably worth picking up Eaton. But who knows, really.
Got him in the lineup today with my Daily pitching pickups, watched him on TV, had great stuff but most importantly, got out of couple of jams. He nailed all the corners today, but I can't see him continue to get high strikeout, should be good to have this season tho.
I would take Eaton over Chacon or Suppan. Eatons really the only one who will get 8-10 k games, plus he has the best arm imo. Suppan is hot, so i wouldnt lose him. Chacon is doing well, but since hes in Coors, i would drop him. Suppan has the worst stuff of the 3, a 5.03 career era, but you cant drop a guy with a 1 era, although he wont last.

I picked him up and I think the Padres have something special working with him and the other starters that they have.
If their fans can be patient for 1 year the Padres have a nice rotation going with....
Eaton Lawrence Perez and Peavy
Oh we are patient .... I have been very quiet about these 4 . .. on purpose .. Peavy is on every team of mine ... Eaton was too much SD pitching for fantasy but I would Def pick him up if I had Chacon.
Of course I will never have a roster spot for a Col pitcher .. but that is just me..
