high Risk, medium reward ...
Personally, I still havn't taken Nomo or Piazza off the DL yet. Currently I don't need them ...

I'm passing on Nomo. Too much risk. Nice effort tonight, albeit vs. what is literally a AAA team.

His velocity is back, which was his problem earlier in the season. I would pick him up in heartbeat except that someone already beat me to it. If fully healthy, which looks to be the case, he is a great pticher--lots of Ks, pitcher's park, good team with a great closer, which translates into wins.

I agree...he's a potential stud. Why is everyone so down on him? He is a great pitcher (with high Ks) when healthy. Is there a reason he is not respected here?

i think he should be a very good sleeper for next year if his velocity stays up. as for this year, looks like he'll likely have a start against stl and another one at Coors. so prolly only has limited spot start value.

I watched very little of the game but if you think that an 87 MPH means that his velocity is back, then go for it. That, combined with a splitter that stays up too much, makes me want to avoid him.

Could be...but he seems like a good gamble, as opposed to so many people trying to pick up rookies who have been called up. At least he is proven and has shown what it takes to be a stud pitcher in the Majors. I admit I am still nervous when he pitches, but for the most part I think he's a good risk.
