Blalock & Zito come to mind.

Blalock starts pretty quickly then falls off the face of the earth.

Zito is a slow starter but gets things going later.

Not that he's really a slow starter, but Johan Santana flat out dominates in the second half.


06- 2.95 Pre ASB/2.54 Post ASB
05- 3.98 Pre ASB/1.95 Post ASB
04- 3.78 Pre ASB/1.21 Post ASB not to mention he went 13-0 in the second half that season 8-o

This guy is priceless for the H2H playoff season.

You'll find most of your Cincinnati hitters cool off as the year goes on. It's quite remarkable really, just look at the difference virtually every player sees as the year goes on.

Mike Lowell always starts hot and ends in a nosedive. You can virtually bank on it every year.

i always though Willis was a fast starter and died after the ASB

I agree with deerayfan. He usually starts off hot then fades ;-D
