I got him tonight, dropped B Molina for him. What a daring move.
The kid looks great.

put it in the books. looper nailed it down, so the kid is now 4-1 thanks to his seven shutout innings. considering that he's essentially replaced tony armas jr as my three league pitcher, i am rather impressed and, well, unfortunately kind of counting on this kid to be a big gun up there with prior, mulder, etc

I must say I'm impressed by this guy, even though his WHIP is higher than I'd like. I started him in two of my leagues and reaped the rewards, but do you guys think I should drop C.C. Sabathia for him in my other league?

C.C. got rocked today but it was Coors, he's done pretty well the last month, but I know Willis won't last on the WW much longer. They both have comparable schedules the next month.


Thanks for the input.

He looked good shutting down the team he rooted for as a kid. I liked hearing he was a Vida Blue fan. I also have been waiting for his starts recently. I've claimed and waived many a pitcher this year, but Willis is one I'm most happy with.

I didn't expect 0 ER, but he did look good. You can see he will get the K's. With them high black sox going, it looks like he has about a 48 inch inseam.

Willis lived by me. He went to a rival high school of mine. Good straight head on his shoulder. Hardest worker of anyone that competed in our league including Jason Kidd.
