I know Cain is or can be a good to great pitcher -- living in S.F., I've seen plenty of his efforts -- but I just don't see him helping any fantasy manager win a trophy anytime soon.
What's to like? How about a career 1.26 WHIP? 160 - 180 Ks per season (53 already in '08)? The fact that he's 23 years old? The fact that he plays in a weak hitting division in a pitchers' park?
He's nearly unhittable in August/September for his career, which is crunch time for Roto leagues and Playoffs for H2H leagues. I'll gladly take him off some of your guys' hands.
