Glendon Rusch?

He's had 3 very solid starts in a row including tonights complete game shutout. What are your thoughts on this guy?

He is the Cubs Unsung Hero. He always seems to be there when the Cubs need him most. His fantasy numbers aren't great but 33 K in 46 innings isn't that bad and his ERa is under 3 and WHIP is under 1.5.

Might as well take a shot with him while he's hot. He keeps the Cubs in the game & is good for 6-7 innings.

I just threatened my best friend's life for adding him after I brought him up in a conversation in both the leagues we're in together because in 1 league, I couldn't do a transaction until I moved KRod off the DL, requiring me to drop someone, and then another player to get Rusch and our other league he flat out beat me to the punch. That's a D*c& move. I'd be all over Rusch if he was still available in my leagues. What beautiful stats this guy puts up night in and night out. He hasn't allowed more than 2 ER in any outing all season and he had good numbers last year.

Well, I went to go to the roto league we're in to add Rusch and he literally added him 5 seconds before I went to do it so I brought it up in our conversation with a slew of obscenities for beating me to the punch. Then he says something along the lines of "Well, I would've gotten him in H2H too if he was still available" which of course he still was...
Before I finished my explanation of why I didn't add him because of KRod being still under my DL and having to drop 2 guys to get him and move KRod to active again he already made the move. If the Dodgers would stop d*ck*ng around and put Bradley on the DL already I could've switched him with KRod and just added Rusch for Dimitri Young.

Does that explain it? I'm blowing my top right now...
