Pitching Notes

I’ve had a love-hate relationship with the Danny Salazar all year. At first I was very optimistic about him. Then I was extremely down on him, but now I’m back on the bandwagon for the rest of this year and in 2015.

Jason Hammel was been extremely effective the past five starts for the A’s. I wrote a few days ago he’s been so effective because he has regained the command of the curveball to almost the same level when he was with the Cubs.

Pitching Notes

Since this is a three day weekend (I literally found out yesterday) I’m going to show a lot of #slack and repurpose other writing I’ve written in the past week, which is mostly “scouting” reports on starting pitchers.

Stephen Strasburg has immense talent, but I question his pitchability.

I am big believer in Mike Minor and Tsuyoshi Wada for the rest of this year and heading into 2015. In the Minor piece I talk about Yusmeiro Petit’s record breaking streak and how I’m still not buying him.

Adam Wainwright has dead arm, but this has happened before and I believe I found the primary reason for his struggles. If you own him you have to start him.

Lastly, I am so excited Jason Parks (@ProfessorParks) was hired by the Cubs as pro/amateur scout. I can safely say he has had the most influence on me from a baseball knowledge standpoint (I think Jason would say that’s a bad thing, ha). He’s one of the biggest reasons why I have been able to cobble pitching staffs through the waiver wire the last four year and always finish in the top three roto points. Congratulations Jason!!
