thoughts on Capuano?

Postby stumpak » Thu Jul 07, 2005 5:25 pm

Is this guy legit? He tailed off in the second half last year, but then landed on the DL. Anyone know the story? How important is the Maddux factor? What do people think about him for next year?

Ya mean Capuano? ;-D I think he is for real. He was once thought of quite highly when he was a D-Back. He has better than average stuff and I think he will be a solid ML pitcher from now on. He isnt Santana or anything, but he is quite solid.

I agree he's going to be solid.

He had a 3.70 ERA last year until he pitched two games against the cubs and got destroyed in both games. The word was that he was pitching hurt and didn't tell anyone about it which caused the bad outings. He should be a solid starter the rest of the year if he stays healthy, though nothing amazing.

He walks too many guys. 4.50-5 era second half unless he can get it under control.

He's also got one of, if not the best pickoff move in the NL....if that counts for anything.
This field, this game, it's a part of our past, Ray. It reminds of us of all that once was good and it could be again. Oh people will come Ray, people will most definitely come.

His control is a concern but not quite as bad as his yearly numbers look since he had major control problems in april He also has the best pickoff move in baseball and has 9 pickoffs and has allowed 1 SB with 8 CS because of it, so a good number of those walks turn into outs.
