Oaklands other pitcher

Postby slicemdown » Fri Mar 31, 2006 10:34 pm

I know allot of people are big on Haren this year, and I am too, as I was able to grab his pretty late and I love his stuff. But I havent heard anything about Blanton. The guy cant strike poeple out like Haren can, but I think hes gonna be good this year. He went through a rough patch (13.25 era in march, which i guess is worse than rough) and still managed to finish the year with a 3.5 era and a 2.65 second half era. he only had 4 less second half ks than Haren and it was also his first year. Point is I really like Both guys this year and even though Blanton wont strike out 200 but he could be reliable in contribute in wins Whip and Era.

Blanton was very good last year in the second half. No doubt about it. But Oakland's other pitcher was better. Barry Zito. Remember him? Well he's still a beast. And he strikes guys out.
