View Full Version : Chan Ho Park observations
04-03-2002, 11:06 PM
Anyone else see the Ranger / As opener Monday night? Chan Ho did not look good. I was wondering why he was throwing so many offspeed pitches until I heard about his recurring hamstring injury. Does ot make sense that the injury keeps him from pushing off on his fastball, thus relying on offspeed stuff?
Thanks. I m new to the forum, but plan to be an active participant so long as I am welcome.

David, welcome! Looking forward to your active participation. :)
As for Park, I heard tonight that he underwent an MRI, it didn't look good, and he'll be missing at least his next start. Doesn't bode too well for Texas's attempt to avoid a 2001 redux.

From watching a lot of Dodger games, I can tell you that Chan Ho, like a lot of power pitchers, gets his velocity from his lower half, and when he lost it last year, it was usually due to some strain or pull. Though I would think it would affect his control more.

I have to believe that Chan Ho has a good chance to be a bust. Not only did he go from a pitcher's park to a hitter's park, but know he is dealing with nagging injuries. I was wondering who was going to overpay for Chan Ho and the Rangers definitely stepped up.

a guy with myriad physichal problems and a bit of a head case...Texas is going nowhere without pitching help

Even though he is in a hitter's park he has better hitters behind him than facing him.
You hate to judge a player on one outing, but Chan Ho sucked Monday night. He is going to have to get it together or the Rangers' just wasted another wad of dough.

And, now Chan Ho is likely to go on the DL:
