yeah I too like Raburn, but his eligibility is only in the OF, right? Last year he played in 10 games at 1B, 6 games at 3B and the rest in the outfield, so his eligibility isn't as vast as previous posters have stated. Also apparently Fernando Nieve could lock down a spot in the mets rotation. He looked nasty at times last season.

some pitchers

Hochevar
Nieve
McCutchen
De La Rosa
Richard
Manny Parra
Chris Volstad/Andrew Miller
Holland (if he gets a rotation spot which looks doubtful)

Yahoo default is 10 games played, 5 games started so he qualifies there.

Fernando Nieve, never looked "nasty", at all last season... :-?

Sure he had 1 or 2 quality starts but 36 hits and 20 BB in 36 innings is the exact opposite of nasty. How many of Nieve's 7 starts did you actually watch that he was nasty ?

what do you want from me? I never said "Nieve is amazing last season nobody could hit him lololol". All I said was that apparently he has good stuff and if he locks down a spot in the rotation and stays healthy he could be somebody to watch.

You said he looked nasty at times. I musta missed that start. I want to know more, could you elaborate? I want to check him out so he could be somebody I can watch as a sleeper.

Nasty might be an exaggeration, but I remember him pitching in a game against the Yankees. He didn't 'dazzle' but he got the job done. I picked him up and he gave my team few good starts until he got hurt/ imploded. I also recall him being regarded as a good prospect with the Astros so he obviously has some potential and he does have stuff. Like I said I don't know what you want from me but you obviously have some rage problems with/against me that you need to get sorted out.

lol, no, no problems with you at all, sir. :-) We just need a little disclaimer at the bottom of your posts, that you just type stuff to type stuff at times. I would feel terrible if people drafted Butler in the 4th, reached for Reimold cause he is batting 3rd, or drafted Nieve as a flier.

Just I watch a lot of Mets game from the area, and seen a lot of Nieve's starts. That start against the Yanks, sure was a QS, but you can't go around saying Nieve is nasty. People might actually believe you that Nieve has some nasty stuff.

You're vendetta against me is getting hysterical. When the hell did I say that people should draft Billy Butler in the 4th round?

DaSh is off his rocker but not the guy claiming Fernando Nieve has looked nasty last year, lulz :-)
