I think this is the year when he finally breaks out and becomes one of the top starting pitchers in baseball. The stuff is there to give him that cy young type season and a new team might finally push him to greatness even though his new ballpark is a downgrade. I took him over Bauer as my SP2 and i hope i made the right call

 

ouch!  that's gonna leave a nasty bruise

Well i am a Yankee fan and i had Paxton on my fantasy team for the past two years so i suppose i am biased but i do believe this could be his year

you can do better in round 4 or 5.  Bauer, Buehler, Corbin, carrasco, even flaherty should be ahead of paxton IMO

disagree with those two... I think those two belong after Paxton AND Clevinger. The other 3 are head and shoulders above Pax though.

Had him last year in a points league. He was great when he was pitching. But he misses a lot of time.  160 innings last year. I think he was around 130 the year before.  He should get a lot of run support with the Yanks. So if he can stay healthy, I could see 15 wins and 230 strikeouts. That is about where Corbin, and Bauer would be. I'm not sure if Flaherty and Buehler get there.

corbin for sure at this point.  NL pitcher.... coming off 200 season.... good team as well

 

with flaherty i just like the chances of him being healthy more than paxton.  if you guaranteed me 190 innings from both id take paxton.  so flaherty is a maybe IMO

Dear god he is brutally bad right now

 

Brutally bad is way dramatic.. he was painting all day and just missing, Astros had phenomenal eyes at the plate and made him pay. The whip and era are hurting early, but nowhere near panic mode.

anyone brave enough to start him vs. red sox tonight?...lol

 

Crossing my fingers.  Behind on innings and everyone I stream blows up so may as well give him a shot.  Feel like it’s not my year for pitching.

Sox put up 1 run vs. Baltimore.  They haven't been good this year, have to start Paxton.  Although now I've cursed him for a 5 inning 6 ER performance.

Same.  He has not been kind so far. Not sure if the 6 era or 1.73 whip is worse so far.  At least the game is in Seattle.

Sorry - New York.  I meant at home rather than in Fenway but my brain shorted out apparently. 

 

(This is my third consecutive year with Paxton on my roster so I've definitely followed that move closely.  His only good start this year is at home. YTD the Yankees collectively have a 3.33 ERA and 1.17 WHIP at home and a 5.12 ERA and 1.59 WHIP on the road.)

Just read his BABIP is sitting at .436 right now so positive regression should be coming.

That home start worked out pretty well!

Glad the Mariners got some fat Sheffield and a pack of smokes for him.
