what's up with Maroth?

Is he gonna keep this up all year? I just thought of him as a low-K journeyman pitcher, does anyone have some better insight on this guy?

i still think of him as a low k journeyman pitcher. the only thing that he might be half decent for in the end is his wins, playing for detriot and that offense (which, of course, is struggling mightily right now)

I wouldn't say they are struggeling. Maroth is only about 22-23 years old . It only seems like hes been around a while. He didn't have any offense behind him the first couple of years. His major problem is he doesn't really have an out pitch. He doesn't throw 95 MPH. Will he keep this up? Well that would mean he would win 30 gams.But I can see him winning 15 -16 games this year and having an ERA of about 4.00. In the AL thats pretty good with the DH.

Ha, yeah. He's getting real lucky if you ask me. There's no chance that an ERA under 1 sticks. He's still a FA in both of my 12-team leagues, if that tells you anything.

Sell high in an AL only league, otherwise he's not going to have any trade value so don't bother.

I can actually see him having sort of a career year, but nothing close to what he's doing now. If he puts up a little more consistency than in the past, then he is capable of making a run at a sub-4 ERA (barely). But that is the best case scenario because he just isn't a high upside guy. What was interesting about him last year is how awful he was at Comerica. His ERA was nearly 6 in what was one of the best pitcher's parks in the league, but managed a solid 3.58 ERA (and 1.25 WHIP) on the road. Of course, Maroth is an inconsistent one and those splits were practically reversed in 2004. Call him a guy who is not too bad of a real life left handed starter, but a guy I don't really want to count on for my fantasy team.
