Seems like half your staff is either on the DL or slumping. If you'd have Greg Maddux on your staff it would really round it out....
Oh, you mean my staff? Schilling, Buehrle, Maddux, Pineiro, Ohka. You all know about the first 3 by now, and Pineiro... let's put in some sportsline quotes:
January: "Look for the young hurler to be even more reliable this season and provide solid stats in most of the pitching categories. He might very well approach the 20-win mark and should be a solid second Fantasy starter in AL-only leagues. "
This Wednesday: "Pineiro won his first game since April 25 against Detroit. Two of his three wins have been against Cleveland and Detroit. He is not worth using in AL-only leagues unless the matchup is favorable."
That's a bit of a downgrade, huh?
And as for the beating Ohka's taken: "In his past two starts entering Thursday's game, Ohka allowed 10 earned runs and 13 hits in only 3 2/3 innings. He also yielded three home runs."
