The Other Clayton

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

The Other Clayton

Postby peter » Mon Jul 21, 2008 1:55 pm

Clayton Richard's contract was purchased by the White Sox on Monday and he will start at home against Texas on Tuesday, according to the team's official site.
He was 12-6 with a 2.44 ERA in 19 starts this season for Triple-A Charlotte and Double-A Birmingham. This contradicts a Chicago Tribune report that Nick Masset would take the rotation spot of Jose Contreras (elbow, 15-day DL). Richard is a highly regarded prospect that went 6-0 with a 2.37 ERA in Triple-A.
Richard's minor league #s look nice. (see below)

Naturally, he's not available on Yahoo! because he hasn't pitched in the bigs yet. Kind of like how Gio Gonzalez hasn't pitched in the majors. But GG somehow made his way into the Y! universe. I suspect intelligent design.

He doesn't appear to be a big K guy, but his control looks solid. Maybe like Kevin Slowey, but less prone to giving up home runs. Henceforth the low ERA.

Am I out of line in thinking that Clayton Richard could have more fantasy value this year that Clayton Kershaw?

I suspect intelligent design.

I agree with your assessment. Also, seems to do well when he first gets on a scene. Will be watching him against the Rangers. If you can get him now, I would just in case he's the real deal.

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.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
