G. Anderson or L. Berkman?

I wouldn't trade Burnett for Smotlz straight up...Burnett is better than Smoltz, so even if you feel you didn't need an OFer, you only made his team stronger without making yours better. I do think you made your team a lil worse.

Yah, after looking it over another couple times I did hurt my team a bit. I got trade happy. Oh well, guess I will learn from my mistake.

I think I'll be just fine though, I just nabbed B. Colon off the WW about 5 minutes ago. :)

Staff looks like this now...

SP: C. Zambrano, C. Pavano, J. Smoltz, D. Willis, J. Thomson, T.Lilly
RP: A. Benitez, M. Batista, B. Lyon

Yah, ridiculous don't you think... But hey, can't complain when you have #1 priority on the WW.

Burnett > Smoltz

Anderson > Berkman

Plus you just 'gave' him Jenkins. Bad deal.

General manager Tim Purpura said outfielder Lance Berkman
had "a setback" last week in his rehabilitation from
offseason knee surgery. Purpura said while working out,
Berkman experienced swelling in the knee and his planned
rehab assignment at either Corpus Christi or Round Rock next
week would be delayed. "It's probably unlikely that he'll
start his rehab the 12th," Purpura said. "He's going on the
road trip with us and he'll start doing baseball activities
like hitting and throwing and we'll see where he's at then."

This means Berkman will not be able to return to Fantasy
lineups in April at all, which is discouraging after reports
had him well ahead of schedule. He could have been rushing
himself back, which might mean the Astros seriously cool off
his rehab schedule to play it safe. Consider him out for the
first four Fantasy weeks at least right now.

Damn, that really sucks! I traded him straight up for Andruw Jones, hoping he'd get back when said. I should've known better. As for the Burnett/Smoltz side of it, Smoltzy rocked today. What, 15 K's? I think he's ready to handle the starting side of things, and I'd bump him right up there, if not past Burnett. Just my opinion though. Really sucks about Berkman, I'm bummed about that big-time... :-t
