Hisashi Iwakuma & J.J. Putz ?

Who to start, who to bench. Grab that WW guy? Low priced rookie or high priced stud?

Hisashi Iwakuma & J.J. Putz ?

Postby Giacoo » Sun Jun 30, 2013 2:11 pm

First, observation about Hisashi Iwakuma. Reason for concerns? 3 bad outings.

I see no reason for him to give up five homers in two games. I checked his velocity -- fine -- and his injury predictors -- fine -- so he's not losing velocity or showing signs of injury. Good strikeout rate, elite walk rate, good ground-ball rate, he's a good pitcher.

Second, should I reside with J.J. "enigma" Putz?

Or look to drop one of my RP for another SP below?

Or lackey he has 8 QS in a row. I like Tehran don't get me wrong but I'm not sold 100 on him..or lackey. I just prefer redsox offense over atl's

Hmm....any reason for concern now with Iwakuma?

Also, any reason for concern with Corbin?

This is bad time for my pitching to start faltering.

And I was tempted to grab John Lackey over Julio Teheran?

I also been watching Dillon Gee and Martin Perez pitch well.

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.

NO concerns with Iwakuma, Corbin?

And curious, why not John Lackey instead of Gee?

Those pitchers were not 2.20-ish ERA pitchers ever in their life, they are regressing to their norm, they'll be fine... Go with Lackey if you prefer him...

Thanks Grey.

Does this apply also to Iwakuma? I mean, 4 horrible games and stats..in our scoring system.

Of course we knew the results earlier in the season were too good to be true..Iwakuma's K/BB ratio in his last 31 days split is still 29 K / 5 BB in 41 IP. GB% is holding steady and velocity is up a tick.
