Who will be this week "Riley?"

Postby Members Only Jackets » Mon Apr 26, 2004 2:14 am

Last week, Baltimore pitcher Matt Riley was all the craze...until his lousy performance. There was a lot of buzz....

My question: who's the next RILEY, i.e. a pitcher we should monitor very closely....w/ huge upside.

thanks


Maybe Lieber?

Riley has two starts this week against middling/poor teams ... I picked him up as my fifth just for the ride. Fingers crossed.

I think there are a few guys in the Riley camp but like Riley don't have a HUGE upside .. a strong upside but not huge; DuBose, Bonderman, Gobble come to mind... but I think you need to be pepared for a roller coaster ride with any of these guys.

How about the cafe's sleeper of the week: Jason Stanford ;-D

Off to a great start, but nobody has noticed. Chick's dig the K/9 I guess :-b

EDIT: nm, he's out until may. But he'll be the "Matt Riley of May" ;-D

Maybe he doesn't qualify because he's probably not available, but he's a stud with two starts this week:

Jake Peavy. Kids a stud, the wins will come.

Yep, exactly 27 in a row over 3 games. But the batter before those 27: Koskie hit a HR. The batter after those 27: Tony Pena hit a HR. Still awesome though, 27 in a row is tough. Too bad he doesn't get a lot of K's though.

Wow, the royals must really be in trouble if they are letting their manager hit now. ;-D

Zach Day has been pitching quite well for Montreal. His K/BB ratio is not great, but you can't argue with his success so far this year.
