Chan Ho Park of old?

Postby mgoody6634 » Sat Apr 24, 2004 12:12 pm

Do you all see him returning to his old great numbers or his awful ones of more recent seasons (when he has been injured/limited)?
The Reds might stink, but I'm still a fan!

i'd say the odds of that happening are roughly equal to the odds of farrah fawcett being hot once again.

I agree. A lot of Park's former success was due to pitching at Dodger Stadium. A flyball pitcher like him was insane to sign in Texas in the first place.

The biggest problem is that he has lost a lot of velocity on his fastball. He used to be able to throw it 94 or 95, the past two years he was only throwing it like 88. Then he started throwing all these curve balls and crap and just sucked.

Seems like he is throwing around 91 or 92 now so maybe he can regain some form, but I wouldn't count on it.

The Rangers made a really dumb move signing Park, who never pitcher extremely well outside of Dodger Stadium in the first place.

This year Park has shown moments of his past abilities, but then he will go out the next game and give up 7 runs. I think his main problem is on the mental level.

It would be hard to trade park as most people know about his problems. His fastball is plain terrible, and his curveball has as much break on it as mine does (I'm not a very good pitcher) so I say keep him while hes hot, if you can trade him, or let me see your list of FA's.
