Will Odalis Perez pitch better?

Postby warrick95 » Wed Jun 18, 2003 2:26 pm

Last year, he had one of the best WHIPs in the league. This year, he's got an ERA quite a bit over 4 and is not answering the expectations that were set for him. Do y'all think he'll start pitching better, closer to his old stats? I'm thinking of dealing Morris in a package deal to acquire Perez, since I'm worried about Morris' huge workload and injury.

I think Perez will be fine and will put up decent numbers, probably in the range of a 3.40 ERA and WHIP around 1.10; there'll be some dropoff from last year, but not a dramatic dropoff. In fact, just a few starts ago, Perez was on pace to basically match his 2002 numbers. He then had a start at Coors Field where he got absolutely shellacked, and then one bad start at home where he gave up 7 runs. Take away those two starts, and he would have a 3.20 ERA.

There's always the possibility that Odalis could be a one-year wonder.
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
