I believe it's a one game thing. I own RJ and am starting to realize I don't want him on my team anymore. He's so darn inconsistent and with the H2H playoffs coming up, I would like to have someone more inconsistent. The thing is with RJ this season, you don't know if your gonna get 8ip 10k's 0 er or 6 ip 5 er's 4k's. Sorry that was my personal rant/semi-answer to your question.

Well that's just like, your opinion man.

I'm trying to give him away and nobody is buying. I'm currently offering him and Garret Anderson for Jason Bay, who I believe will be much more consistent.

I honestly would not want Randy on my roster going into the playoffs, so I'm looking to dish off, cause i couldn't bring myself to drop him.

I've got him too. I'm hoping that a wild card race will help drive the Yankees to better performances, RJ included. I'd hang onto him but he's probably at the point of pitching him only in good matchups until he gets a streak going. Sucks that most of the AL East doesn't qualify as a good matchup. (sigh)

You really never know what you are going to get with him the rest of the year. He had a bad 3 game stretch last time it acted up, was really solid for the next few games and then it acted up again and he had back to back poor outings again.

It's pretty obvious that RJ's back's been a problem this season.

Honestly, he is a gamer. He is at his best when the game matters. That being said, the Yanks have a ton of big games coming up in September. Take a look at his Sep/Oct numbers. I expect him to come back healthier and pitch well down the stretch.

I'm hoping he will bounce back strong after having his rest.

The potential to dominate is always there with RJ, and he's still posting solid K and BB numbers with a decent win total.

But if I can trade him and get decent value for him still, I will. I'm currently shopping him and a few other inconsistent pitchers on my staff. I'd prefer not to carry him into the playoffs, in which case I'd be obligated to start him.

I agree...I haven't tried shopping him around recently but I'm gonna have to do it. I'm afraid to start him and unwilling to drop him or trade him for nothing. I've got Peavy, Prior, Schmidt and King Felix in a roto league with a max IP and I'm actually GLAD RJ isn't pitching. It lets me spot start and have more reliable pitchers eat up my IP.

Being a Yankee fan i would hope he bounces back strong. But i don't see it. now they're talking about skipping his next spot in the rotation because of an off day. he will give you occasional shut-em-down-bury-em outing but there's gona be a high risk to that.
