Holy crap did he just get rocked, and only 3 Ks, I get that from my closers sometimes. I guess someone above was right, start him in Colorado and NOT on the road.

What a great way to start my weekend. :-t :-P

Chacon's early start is nothing more than a mirage. Last year, he started fairly well also, but everything fell apart after the first month, and he finished with a 5-11 record, 5.73 ERA and 1.53 WHIP. He was playing with Colorado and at Coors last year, and didn't have it, so the argument about him playing high school in Denver just doesn't hold weight. He didn't just suddenly become Pedro. At best, he will get 10 wins, a 4.50 ERA and a WHIP around 1.40. In other words, classic waiver material.

pretty convenient to post that after his worst outing of the year...

Thanks for the insight.

I had John Thompson last year and I started him at Coors. He was 5 and 3 there.

"He may just have Coors Field mastered."

I know, hindsight is 20-20, but (1) he got shelled last night and (2) "master" Coors Field. The list of very good proven pitchers who go to Coors and STINK is long and sad. Look at Hampton, a ground ball specialist - still got wrecked by Coors. No pitcher can master Coors Field. [/quote]
