Comparing Contreras, Cliff Lee, and Towers...

Postby Top Dog » Thu May 12, 2005 2:57 pm

Which two of they three will have a better year the rest of the way?

Contreras is on the best team. More chances for wins. He's got a nice ERA and whip but has walked 21 batters to go along with 30 Ks. Signs of more problems to come?

Lee started out rough. Had a nice couple games, couple mediocre, than did well against two of the better hitting teams.. Tex & Anaheim. Only 7 walks to go with 25 ks.

Towers is off to great start. 4-1 with a decent ERA, strong whip and has only waked 3 batters to go along with 30 ks.

Thoughts?

I'm staying away from Contreras for the rest of the season now. As HR, BB, and K are very important to a pitcher's success, he walks too many and gives up too many untimely long balls. Much too inconsistent. :-t
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
