rotoworld:

Jake Peavy threw seven innings and allowed one run Tuesday in a loss to the Astros.

A hard-luck defeat for Peavy, but at least it was a second straight positive outing. He seems to be on his way to returning to ace form.


I can't remember where I read that about Peavy, but I'm not inventing it. I should probably have say that he "may" have been pitching with the same injury Sheets had. Maybe he's past it now, but if you really don't believe anything was wrong with him...then why has he been so bad?

[quote="bellings"] Now taking nominations for the most season-killing rotation that looked viable at the beginning of the year.[/quote]


Dontrelle Willis
Felix Hernandez
Randy Johnson
Jon Lieber


Granted, these players have gotten better over the season, but those first couple months really killed me -- enough I had to abandon my entire philosophy and trade for undeniably great, consistent pitchers. Now I have a rotation of Oswalt, Zito, Halladay, and Beckett.

My season opening rotation in my NL-only:

Sheets
Lowry
Lieber
Odalis
Madson

:-P Needless to say I fell behind badly in the pitching categories early on.

Come on! The guy has an ERA under 3 and 10 wins. What do you want? Not automatic? An ERA under 3 is nothing to ever complain about despite any expectations.

i dont believe anything is wrong because he hasn't been so bad lately. His past two outtings were very solid and the one before that everyone said was a mechanics issue. I'm willing to bet hes back on track to being an ace... ;-D

Here's my 4 man rotation of death (my top 4 SP draft picks) along with my top 2 RP draft picks. And yes, I realize this was a pretty crappy draft even if they hadn't all been busts this year.

Randy Johnson
Bartolo Colon
John Patterson
Zach Duke

Brad Lidge
Derrick Turnbow

Those were the first 6 pitchers I drafted - none are on my team today - and I'm in 1st place. Next year, I may not even draft any pitchers....

jesus, Bruce Chen was in your rotation? 8-o

And this was my rotation in one team:

Halladay
Kazmir
Mulder
Morris
Bedard

This rotation was so so early on, then it turned brutal. Dumped Bedard a couple of weeks before he went on his tear on a fit of frustation. And Kazmir and Mulder are both on the DL. Only Halladay and Morris remain :-[ :-[ :-[
