Winter league update

Rotoworld is reporting that Tony Armas, Jr. pitched 5 scoreless innings in a postseason game yesterday in the Venezuelan Winter League. In 19 innings in that league, he's struck out 18, and given up only two earned runs, giving him an ERA of 0.95. While the competition is far less fierce than in the majors (particularly considering he hasn't gone more than five innings in any of those appearances), that's still a great sign.

Luis Ayala, who may end up closing for the team in 2005, has also performed well too, giving up one earned run in 8.2 innings in the Mexican Pacific League, for a 1.04 ERA.

And in the gone, but not forgotten department, Rotoworld reports that "Juan Rivera homered, doubled and walked yesterday in the start of round robin play in the Venezuelan Winter League.
"Rivera hit .402/.434/.658 and drove in 31 runs in 31 regular-season games. Winter league play may not count for a lot with major league teams, but Rivera has to have helped his chances of becoming Anaheim's primary DH with his performance."

Yes, I'm still bitter. And I stand by my earlier predictions that given equal playing time Rivera will be as valuable as Guillen this year.

All in all, I agree with you, they'll probably post similar numbers (assuming Rivera gets a full-time job). It's a deal where you have to look past the on-field performance to see the value... Guillen is much easier to pass off as a star, which will help market the team. Rivera is still going to come across as a prospect who is not done proving himself.
