Man, has he looked less than stellar these past few games. Still usually giving up one walk or less, and only had one true eye-gouger in the last five games (8 ER vs. Philly), but he's certainly not the Mr. May that helped us all out.
Anyone selling, or sticking with it? I'm gonna have to do the latter, for we know that he's got it in him to put up some good games.
You could do a lot worse than Javy Vazquez. Sure he's been rocky, but he's also had some great games - hell, the previous game was against a very good White Sox team, he gave up 3R in 8 innings, struck out 10 and got the win. As far as the Philly game, you probably should only start your very best in the Philly launchpad this year. Javy is someone worth hanging on to.

yeah, he's been pitching well. one problem he seemed to be having last night was he'd give up grounders that would just squeak by the infielders. in the first inning along, he gave up three singles on weakly-hit balls that sliped either just by or just under the gloves of diving fielders. as a vazquez owner, this was most annoying, but at least he's not pitching too poorly.
