« This Day In Mets Infamy With Rusty: The ” Omar Got This One Right” Edition 04-10-11
Last Night on the Farm – 4/9/11 »

Today’s question surrounds Sandy Alderson’s two pitcher acquisitions over the winter.
How many games do you think both Capuano and Young will win this year for the Mets?

If both stay relatively healthy? I’m hoping for 10-12 each.
All depends on how deep they’ll go in each start. So far in this early season the Mets seem to be scoring runs in the late innings, sometimes from behind.
If they’re not going to pitch but 5-6 innings, they’re not going to have many opportunities to get a W.

I agree with mf4d – except I can see Young winning closer to 15

I think Young will have a strong year at 12 W and Cap at 4.
Wins for a pitchers are a poor indicator for personal success.

Why so low for Cap?

I don’t foresee him in the rotation that long and I bet there will be an injury along the way.
My prediction in really a crap shoot. I just don’t believe that both those guys will stay healthy. Young is the better pitcher and I feel he is over the current injury hump so I’m placing more eggs in his basket.

I don’t consider either one of them injured now, or even think they will go down. both had surgery 2 years ago, and came back effective last season, and have had no problems so far with the mets. So in a sense, you can say they were “cured”
of course they could get hurt again, but pretty much every pitcher is 1 pitch away from that. And of the 2, I would worry about Young, since he had a shoulder problem, and that can be more of a wear and tear item that might be a problem as the season goes along.
Cap had TJ surgery. Lots of guys have that, and once they get to that 2nd year, pitch just fine if it was done right. He also pitched plenty of innings between the minors and majors, and was doing really good as a SP in September.
so, it would not shock me if they both made it through the year (maybe a 15 day in the middle for some piddly issue) and made 25+ starts.

I originally was going to say 14 but unlike Salty, it’s not that I’m worried about injury as much as I’m worried about going deep in games. If he does start doing that consistency, then more than 12 wouldn’t be a stretch.
4/10/2011-10:48am at 10:48 am (UTC -4)
I’m going with 50 starts between them, team wins 33 of them.
4/10/2011-11:24am at 11:24 am (UTC -4)
I’ll say 22 wins, combined.
4/10/2011-11:25am at 11:25 am (UTC -4)
and for pelf, 9.
4/10/2011-11:39am at 11:39 am (UTC -4)
those 2, depends on how many starts they make (well, that s of course true for all SPs, but you might worry about these guys).
say, 45-50 combined starts, 20-25 wins?

looks like paulino is out for at least another 2 weeks, since they are putting him on the DL. Man, is he going to be behind, since he had little ST too.
wonder if they can find a better spare than Nickeas now?
