LIMA MR Rankings

Postby RugbyD » Sat Jan 15, 2005 5:09 pm

These are my MR rankings. Only ERA, WHIP, and K are taken into account. These are weighted by projected IP. Ryan is the only important one who has any serious chance of closing any games aside from happenstance. Anyone after Frank Francisco is not close to draft-worthy, but may be useful down the road depending on if you need a little help in only ratios or only Ks (e.g. Duchscherer or Dreifort).

Isn't Cruz starting for the A's? Or has that yet to be determined?

I don't think he's scheduled to be a starter, though he could get plenty of spot starts with such a young rotation there are bound to be DL stints I would think. None of the starters outside of Zito have pitched more than 200 IP in a year have they?

Don't know about the IP counts. Have ot been following the A's pitcing meltdown after the Hudson and Mulder deals so I looked it up. Currently the A's rotation is listed as:

Rotation:
#1 Barry Zito lhp
#2 Rich Harden
#3 Dan Haren
#4 Joe Blanton
#5 Keiichi Yabu

on the site I use for such info.

Yabu?...He is 36 with no MLB experience so is he the next Takatsu or the next Irabu?. Meyer, Etherton and Cruz?

Blanton at #4 had a 4+ Era in AAA.


Looks like 4 and 5 in Oakland is a complete guesswork.

I think so, but I wasn't sure enough of what will happen come April, so I left him in.

Damn! I never noticed how good Mike Gonzalez was last year. I have him in a keeper and liked the stats he gave me... but between AAA/MLB he had 90 K's and 13 BB's in 63 IP. And he only gave up 2 HRs. Before last season, he had virtually no experience past AA, and even in AA he had no success at all. What a breakout year. Anybody know why he missed most of 2003? It seems like he took time off of baseball to take lessons from RJ or something :-D

What are you talkin about? He taught Ollie how to pitch. See, after he RJ taught Mikey G, he passed on the knowledge to Ollie P. Get it? Got it? Good. :-D
