2010-01-21 13:00:00 (link to chat)Homer Baily: Post-hype sleeper?
(Rick from Chicago)
He needs to drop the walks, but at least the homers stopped leaving in Jose Lima quantities. He's definitely in the sleeper category. (Marc Normandin)


BP Roundtables

DateRoundtable NameComment
2010-04-05 09:30:00Season Opener Roundtable"Vicente Padilla (Where ever I live): how much do I suck on a scale of 1 to Jose Lima?"

Everything is a matter of context, really. He's not a BAD pitcher, really sort of an averagish pitcher. But that gets obscured when you start comparing him to the typical opening-day starter, which is usually a well above average pitcher (even most bad teams are able to scrape together at least ONE pitcher better than Padilla). (Colin Wyers)
