Forgive and Forget- Kevin Brown

I pretty much disagree and think you guys are overvaluing Brown off a small current sample. Even in this good stretch, he has only 10K's in 18 IP, which is a less than acceptable rate.

He won ten games with an ERA over 4, an ordinary WHIP and poor K rate last year, and now he's a year older.

I'll wish you guys the best of luck with him, but I can't see Brown as being an asset to any team other than one that's really hurting for SP's in a very deep league.

Oh please...I just can't stop laughing.

Brown beat the A's twice and the Mets. Oh the back...oh the mound...oh the parasites...oh the defense...oh the wall got in the way of my hand...oh the bats keeping hitting my hanging curves.

Brown is a scary option. Even his win against the Mets was not a very good start. Look at the amount of hits & walks that he gave up. He is not striking out many anymore. I think you take a big risk if you start him.

What do you mean? The A's have a solid lineup. :-D

I own Chavez in 3 leagues, so my frustration level is very high wrt the A's offense.

You Yankees' fans didn't like Vazquez, Weaver, Loiaza, and Contreras, and now look what these guys are doing.

You Yankees' fans are ridiculous. A bad first impression and you guys conclude that a player with a heralded career like Brown stinks. Boo to you! :-t

I'm not sure one guy should represent all Yankees fans.

I'm very optimistc about Brown, and didn't like the Vazquez/Johnson trade very much.

Honestly dude, shut the hell up :-t

You are a disgrace for thinking that TheYanks04 speaks for all Yankee fans. He's the biggest baby on the entire board here but he doesn't speak for anyone other than himself. An intelligent person would recognize that and know not to make stupid blanket statements based on one individual. You are the person that deserves the :-t :-t
