David Bush wins Rotation Spot

Postby TheBayBergaler » Thu Mar 23, 2006 8:30 pm

according to Rotoworld....

David Bush, who officially won a rotation spot on Wednesday, blanked the Giants for six innings on Thursday.
He has a 0.90 ERA in 20 innings this spring. Bush will start the fourth game of the season as a result of the injury to Ben Sheets. Mar. 23 - 6:38 pm et

What do you guys think? Chances he finally breaks out now that he has the tutilige of Mike Maddux who seems to be the new Mazonne. Good chance he's on the waiver wire in most if not all leagues.

I always thought Bush was a guy with a lot of potential, things just didn't work out for him in Toronto for a variety of reasons. But he showed major flashes on several occasions.

With a secure spot in a major-league rotation, and with a top pitching coach like Maddux, I really think he could be a break-through candidate either this year or next.

I am not saying that he won't be good but just because he has a good pitchign doesn't mean he is all of sudden going to be good. Bush had a decent pitching coach in Arnsberg one of the reasons he failed in Toronto was because when Toronto was 5 games back of the wild card Halladay was injured and Bush was in the rotation being a prospect who was supposed to good later he wasn't playing great so everyone was saying he wasn't panning out. That obviously hurt his confidence and affected his pitching.

He had to face the Yankees and the Red Sox. Take away those starts and his numbers are pretty good. He will have a nice rebirth in Milwaukee.

Funny thing is some of his best games have come against the Yanks but even still he should be solid this year.

I think Bush is a good guy to take on late rounds, or spend a buck or two.

He had a terrible start of the season last year, but finished strong after spending some time in AAA. His ceiling might not be as high as some other young picthers out there, but I expect him to be at least decent this season. Don't expect him to win you a championship, but he's gonna help you especially in deeper leagues.

Say you can choose between Daniel Cabrera and Bush this season. Bush would be the safe pick while Cabrera could bomb...or become the ace of the O's staff. ;-)

btw...the Jays should have shipped Chacin, not Bush. :-b
