Jose Contreras would be a nice player to look into as well.

Wow...never really looked at Contreras's numbers. I've never seen him pitch personally and never seen any scouting reports but the numbers (especially this year) don't look good. In fact they look like an older pitcher in decline. There's a good chance Contreras gets the next article.

Nice work TLL!

How about Teix for a sugestion? RJ? Kearns?
I was in Los Angeles, and the team was playing in San Diego, but I didn't know it. I had taken LSD at noon. I thought it was an off-day. At 1pm, my girlfriend and trip partner looked at the paper and said, "Dock, you're pitching today!"

Jose Contreras - Liftoff Part Deux

Excerpt:
When you adjust for the combination of the home runs that haven't been hit and the astoundingly low hit rate and project what he should have done to this point the results are startling. A 4.63 era. A 1.320 whip. And given his team's game-by-game run production (and assuming about a run given up every other inning) a mediocre 2-2 record. Contreras has benefited from luck and poor competition to post vastly inflated numbers and along with Vazquez needs to prepare for liftoff.


Enjoy!

Aramis Ramirez - Some Like it Hot

Excerpt:
This guy is entering Aubrey Huff territory as far as his slow starts go but people don't seem to be nearly as aware of ARam's first half struggles as they are of Huff's. Because of this I've seen many people selling low on Ramirez which makes sense if you don't believe he's capable of putting up numbers without Derrek Lee in the lineup. However, Ramirez has shown so far this year that he is definitely capable of putting up quality numbers with Lee on the shelf - you just have to know where to look.

Tell ya what...I've watched him pitch a few times this year and he looks INSANELY hittable. I haven't looked at the stats but I honestly believe if you gave me a bat and a helmet I could walk out there and give it a go...and I never even made the varsity baseball team (soccer was the sport in which I actually had talent ;) ). He looks that bad out there...he's got nothing and he's getting by on a combination of luck and guts. I'll give him credit for at least trying and not becoming a basket-case but his stuff has been terrible. If you wait on a fastball from him you can tear him up.

I am trying to find more detailed analysis on Chad Tracy. Is he going to be better this year or is he pretty much producing where he should be right now. He seems to be striking out much more this season.
