5 Inning Slowey

Postby SwaggerJackers » Sat May 01, 2010 9:30 pm

OK, I'm a league where I need quality starts instead of wins. Kevin Slowey has been pulled before reaching 6 full innings of work in 4 of his 5 games. He hasn't been pitching terrible but is he just going to keep going 5 innings or will he start getting a full 6?

I think he'll go deeper than he has.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

Another start, another 5.2 innings for Slowey. Most of these starts would be QS if he could just finish the damn inning!

Instead I started Floyd and he wrecked my ERA and WHIP.

Against the White Sox tonight:

4.2 Innings
9.64 ERA
1.93 WHIP

He was cruising and then BOOM, he fell apart.

Sounds like sex.
I like sports with balls in them.

I am hating him right now. Working on deal to possibly swap him for Aramis Ramirez.

Part of my sales pitch is "hey, look how good Cueto got after I dealt him (3 QS ago...; one-hitter CG tonight & no BB)"

Funny - was about to post something like this. I'm in a 10 team yahoo roto league, 2nd place - which is great. But it's QS that are keeping me from the top. I'm second to last in QS, with 14.

I have these pitchers:

Hamels
Harden
Slowey
J. Sanchez
Nolasco
Oswalt
Penny
J. Chacin

Penny I picked up two weeks ago and J. Chacin a few days. Hamels, Harden, Slowey and Sanchez have 8 QS between them. That's rough!

Slowey, thank god, I kept on the bench tonight. Penny and Nolasco both came through, though without many K. Have lost faith in Slowey. Okay to drop him? How do you fix a QS slide?
