Lieber Lookin' Good !!!

Postby stomperrob » Sat May 01, 2004 7:46 pm

Had a good first game back today - 5 hits, 3 runs in 7 IP - 3 K's and 0 walks, he threw 91 pitches. Most important, he got the W for me. I picked him up on one of my teams earlier this week and decided to roll the dice and go ahead and start him - by the 6th inning I had grabbed him on 2 of my other teams.
Lieber himself said it would take a few games to get back into the swing of things so even if he has a couple of bad games I'm gonna ride it out until he's had 4 or 5 starts to get a better idea of how he looks. I think he's worth grabbin' if he's still on your WW

Should be worth picking up, he's a Yank, I'd rather have him than Contreras (despite less K's), but both guys are probably still on waivers in most leagues.

Contreras isn't on waivers in any of the leagues I'm doing. Lieber does look like a solid pickup though. I'm thinking of dropping Oliver Perez for him, but I'm not sure yet, Perez can be great in certain matchups.

He had a solid game for his first in a long time. Most important was not that he got the win, as all Yankee starters get those. Most important was that he had the fastball cranking, and was able to blow it by hitters on some occasions, and as a pitcher with good control when he's on his game, he displayed good control (unlike Mussina, who has excellent command, but doesn't have it yet this year). I'm looking for wins and whiffs from Lieber, and a good K/BB ratio, so he should deliver ;-D
The odds of the AL MVP coming from the American League are looking pretty good.
