3 walks is a bit of a worry. Although thats nitpicking.  That area seems to have improved from last season. Going forward, he looks like a must start.  Even on a bad night,he should get a good k/9.  

The cubs are one of the best teams at drawing a walk. I wouldn't worry much about this.

He didn't miss by much on those walks. He consistently pounds the zone.

At the end of the year Caleb Smith may have one of the biggest disparities all-time in regards to value in "wins leagues" versus "quality starts" leagues.

 

DeGrom last year, Shelby Miller back before he became awful, and Felix Hernandez a couple different seasons also come to mind as candidates.

He might, but he's ranked 20th overall in my standard 5x5, which obviously counts Ws and not QS. 

How high is he in QS leagues?

Currently second in swinging strike percentage behind Snell. Pitchers behind him are the usual suspects(Scherzer deGrom Cole) etc. it’s hard to fake missing bats. The only concern I’d have about him at this point is health and if he’s capable of handling the workload of a top pitcher.

He's 12th overall (second highest rated SP).

 

But the fact that the Marlins have managed to win three games for him seems like a miracle that won't keep happening.

He's #1 in my league with k/9 and QS lol (2nd overall behind Yates but 1st starter)

OK, Caleb. I sincerely apologize to you for even 'considering' as a sell-high asset.

Today's game seals the deal. There is no way I'm selling this stud unless I get a bona fide all-star, period.

You HAVE a bona fide all-star.  His name is Caleb Smith.

If you want to fight about selling high vs. holding, do it in the strategy thread.

In my league he is pitcher #5 behind Ryu, Glasnow, Berrios and Paddack  - QS, SV, K, WHIP, K/BB.

He also is #5 overall pitcher in my very fun points format, behind Yates, Verl, Cole and Berrios... [Removed Cool Story]

Quintana was -16 W-QS in 2015. Largest disparity I can recall. 

 

Wait, no, DeGrom last year was -18. That will never be topped.

I’m surprised there’s no chatter about his start today.  The dude has been great so far this season. Yes the wins will be hard to come by but I’ll take the solid Ks and ratios. He’s a stud. 

He’s a legit ace.  Sadly some loser named Berti?  Was leading off tonight.  The lineup the Marlins toss out nightly would be mid pack in PCL, it’s that bad. Smith deserves better.  He’ll run into wins as season goes along but in QS leagues he’ll likely be more valuable for this season.

Maybe they’ll trade him
