whoa, someone dropped Valverde? 8-o 8-o 8-o

Great deal for you. Tyler Walker will revert to being junk eventually.
Yeah. The guy dropped Valverde and picked up Borowski...LOL.. Can you believe that?? I bet you he'll end up picking up my old 'Tyler Walker'...

Ok, I know at some point, Walker is SUPPOSED to blow up and be horrible, but for the last month or so, he's been great for me. In the last month, he's gotten me 8 saves and a win with a 2.13 ERA, 8 Ks, a .91 WHIP and an 8 k/BB ratio. How long does he have to keep doing this before somebody admits the guy has SOME value?!

(watch him blow up tomorrow and make me eat my words)

I know Todd Jones was horrible before last year and he had a great year. It's happened before and it's happened again.

I'd just like Melvin to make a decision by this weekend (though I'm not holding my breath).
I'm a Valverde owner who pounced first on Julio in free agency, but somebody's gotta go so I can activate Hamels for his next start. I'm not keeping both of these guys forever, and Julio seems the logical call to hit the pavement.

Coffey Vs. Valverde

Postby bAsKeTcAsE86 » Fri Jun 09, 2006 12:34 pm

I recently picked up Coffey off of waivers, right before he became the closer in Cincy...but I have yet to play him. Do you guys think I should be playing him over Valverde? If Valverde is pitching well he is going to get me way more strikeouts...and I need Ks.

Uh yeah... I would say play him over Valverde for the time being... I too picked up Coffey from waivers and I have benched Valverde since the pickup.

Start him with confidence.
