Floyd, more here than there in W’s but could be past there plus in K’s
Gavin Floyd picked up his sixth W Monday night over the Cleveland Indians while striking out 5 and walking 2 over 7.2 innings and is still available in one out of every two ESPN leagues. After a career high 17 win 2008 season, Gavin Floyd will have to remain dominant the second half of ‘09 to match last year’s effort but is on track to match last season’s strikeout total of 145. Floyd has averaged 5 K per outing in his last 6 starts along with a 1.31 ERA and a 0.95 WHIP, and if he continues this trend, then Floyd is on pace to surpass his career high in K’s. But before adding Floyd to your roster consider the facts: the next start, Floyd’s last start before the All-Star Break, is in Kansas City against the Royals who have tagged him with a 6.00 ERA and 0-1 record in 2 GS this season and Floyd has an ERA of 5.80 ERA on the road.
