Has Chris Capuano finally proved the doubters wrong?

Very nice starts from Capuano. He seems to be picking up the team's rotation from a DLed Ben Sheets. Nice job on drafting him. :-)

He's been very good, though I doubt he wins 18 again anytime soon. ;-D

My one worry with him as a Brewer fan is that he has faltered late in the year each of the past 2 seasons. Two years ago it was an injury, last year he was simply overworked because they wanted to try to get him to 20 wins. He's yet to end a season strong though so its sitting in the back of my head that he might not finish very strong.

Making me look good for keeping him last year. ;-D

Granted I didn't quite expect this, but I did anticipate a return to his 2004 numbers (which were very good). I just hope he keeps this up for another few years. :-)

In 2004, Capuano pitched 100 innings combined between AAA and the Majors. In 2005, he was overworked and pitched 219 innings! After more than doubling his 2004 total, a 2nd half decline was to be expected.

This year, I think he'll do fantastic in the 2nd half. ;-D

i agree i think hes up for a great 2nd half and could end up winning near 20 games while striking out over 200 batters..
when the season started i had tons of faith in cappy, i got him in the 10th round of my 16 team keeper league.. i was excited when i got him because i knew everyone was undervaluing him.. with the new higher powered brew crew offense i expected tons of wins once again.. like someone said earlier, 26-29 is where many players hit there prime.. and i think capuano may finally be proving he can be a top 10 fantasy pitcher in this league ;-D

Hitter usually hit their prime at 27-28. Pitchers hit it a little later, 28-30. Capuano is just 28, and a great guy to own in a keeper. ;-D

capuanos 27.. but i agree with you for the most part.. and hitters are 27-30 in my opinion.. for prime years, not talking about when a player necessarily breaks out.. ;-D
