Fantasy Baseball Strategy Guide and News for 28 May 2009 (Issue 54)

There are two ways to look at Kevin Slowey. Either he’s better than his rate stats indicate and will build on his 7-1 record, or he’s been lucky to get seven wins so far. When a pitcher wins 25 games, it’s because he was lucky a few times. Is that the case with Slowey? You can’t really predict luck, but if he is available in your league, it’s worth adding him because sometimes bogus stats such as wins can give the guy the confidence he needs to consistently perform at that level. This is what makes Matt Cain so extraordinary, incidentally. You can see Tim Lincecum turning into Barry Zito, but Cain? Barring injury, he’s baseball’s last 300-game winner. If you’d like a safer option, maybe Erik Bedard is available in your league. Want something riskier? Derek Holland is your guy.
If you’ve been waiting to pull the trigger on Luke Scott, it’s time.
