Heres my new sleeper

Unfortunately I have Brown activated on my roster for this week. I dropped him after watching the first inning of the Yankee-Devil Ray game this evening. My league uses weekly trannies , meaning that I have to suffer through another start. In reality, Brown should retire. He is a shell of the pitcher he once was.

He is done. He should have some dignity left and call it a career. Unless he wants mop up duty, they should just release him and put him out of his misery.

its sad to see formerly great pitchers go out after they're finished and just got slapped most every start. if your the optimistic hopeful type brown is a decent pick up. but don't get caught up in illusions that he'll pitch like his 96 year, or even his 2003 year. he moved into the al, not a pitchers park, and into the ny media frenzy and hasn't coped well.

If Brown really knows he just doesn't have it anymore then, like a lot of you guys said, he should really just retire. Save Yankee fans, and baseball fans for that matter, just more agony.

But I wouldn't drop the guillotine just yet. Keep an eye on Brown...a very distant eye. Wait for him to have two solid consecutive starts and for a reason why he would suddenly be doing better (i.e. noticably improved mentality, change in technique or training regimen, passing of previously unknown lingering injury, etc.) and then if you have a spot, I think he's worth a shot. Only because we all know what he's capable of.

But barring those circumstances (which indeed seem highly unlikely right now) STAY THE HELL AWAY FROM HIM.

As a season ticket holder and proud heckler of that waste of the pinstripes on his uniform, Kevin Brown cost us the ALCS last season, the WS last season, and probably Carlos Beltran this season. That was a great sleeper! Good for you ;-D Enjoy last place :-] Maybe next you can go with Jaret Wright :-o

I agree with Yoda on this one....Brown is done. He should take what dignity he has left and retire, soon. What kind of pitcher wants to end his solid career by getting shelled by the Devil Rays?

Bernie Williams is done too, but that isn't the point of this forum...
