What's the deal with Gavin Floyd?

Postby Clayton Jones » Wed Aug 06, 2008 3:49 pm

Back in Philly he looked like he had really good stuff but they didn't bring him along right at all. I wasn't surprised to see how well he was pitching in Chicago earlier this year. Eventually I picked him up and I've been fairly happy with the results up until recently. You guys think he's still worth holding onto? Starting pitching is thin on FA, guys I'd consider dropping him for would be Mark Buehrle, Gil Meche, or Paul Maholm (I have a strange feeling the Pirates are going to finish the season strong for "what the fuck do we have to lose" purposes). Or the new kid they got from NY if his start today was for real.

Karstens? Eh. Maholm's looked solid, but eh. I don't hold the same feelings as you when it comes to Pirates turning things around. I mean, they might be slightly better, but eh. Gil Meche isn't a bad name to look at. Finally, I don't trust Floyd.

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.

I think Floyd might have been the beneficiary of extremely kind luck. See: http://www.fantasybaseballgenerals.com/ ... bip-3.html

Of the three I'd go for Meche. He might not get you many wins, but all of his other #s should be better than Floyd's from here on out. Unless Floyd continues getting lucky. Or all these fancy new stats are worthless.
