Now that Leiter is officially a NYY and starting tommorow what is the outlook on him the rest of the season? Any chance he plays next season too? I am contemplating trading for him (givining up Uribe) in a deep dynasty league.

well... if your fantasy league is a fantasy broadcasting league, i like him as a keeper pickup. if your fantasy league is a fantasy baseball league, however... stay away. away. far, far away.
the man is posting a 6.64 era in the nl east with more bb's than k's; you think he's going to improve that once he switches into the al east? not bloody likely. if you were playing in a 1x1 where your sole pitching stat was wins, he *might* be a consideration. otherwise.... what are you thinking, man???
I'm in a 24 team 40 man roster dynasty league. Currently stuck in second place overall all season. Starting pitchers are in a PRIME in this league. We start 5 each week and most teams are lucky just to have 5 healthy eligible at SP! If Leiter can pickup a few wins, and two start weeks, he could easily propel me to the championship. Uribe is expendable when I have Young, Cano, Izturis, and Blake at MI and 3b (also Marte waiting in the wings).
So please understand that each league is different. I was ranked 12thOVR of 3million fantasy players on Sportsline last season, so I know a little here and there
Well in that case it's hard to tell. I've never played in a league that deep. You're going to have to look at the fringe starters in your league and compare that to what Leiter has been able to do so far this year. Factor in that the AL East is going to hurt him statistically. If you have room on your roster and the league is that deep it might be worth a flier on the off-chance he regains his control. But if you weren't considering grabbing him while he played with the Marlins in a pitcher-friendly park and division, I don't see why the Yankees offense would change things that much. The Yankees have shown that the offense isn't so good that they can overcome horrible pitching.
Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey
