Well, I'm not holding my breath for "a week". With NJ, I suspect it'll be closer to a month than a week. I actually dumped him as soon as he hit the DL in my non-keeper league since I'd rather use the DL spots for pitchers there -- I'm leading R/HR/RBI/OPS and NJ doesn't help SB although his AVG is nice.
In my deep keeper league that uses XR for points, not roto, I'm still holding him despite not having enough DL spots (for him *and* Javy Lopez) and was relying on him to be my main 1B/Util. Have to rely on Shelton and Dan Johnson now. Really wish I didn't trade away Hafner (and Floyd!) to get Beckett now -- Pronk was still iffy at the time (plus might not qualify for 1B next year) and Floyd had cooled off some and started getting niggling injuries. Oh well, can't win 'em all, but who knows? Maybe Dan Johnson will turn out to be almost as good as Pronk next year given their similarities.
