BUMP


WHEN??????


when he pitches .2 more innings. yahoo usually only adds pitchers after they reach the 5 inning mark in the bigs.


Yeah. Cole Hamels is an exception because he actually IS Yahoo!. Most search engines are powered by Google or Yahoo or something. Yahoo is powered by Cole Hamels.


HAHA. That's like a Hamels facts thing.

BTW he was added today. Not in time to get off waivers for his start tomorrow, though. Look for him to have a complete game shutout against the collective group of players formerly known as the "Braves."

Is he good enough to burn a #2 on in a 16 teamer with crap on the WW??

I'd try for Billingsley with the #2 priority he looks slightly better than Lester and has a better chance of sticking in the rotation for the whole season.

O.K. Just be sure to make sure that you let me know when he is added. :-)

Lester's outing:

6ip 5h 1r 3bb 5k

Only a few balls were actually hit hard. His command took the 5th inning off, but he sacked up and got out of a huge jam with the big bats up. Overall a very impressive start.

Lester might fill in for Clement who was put on the 15-day DL today. Plus, is Billingsley for real? I know he's a good prospect and all and he did good Thursday. Should I drop Nate Robertson (Detriot) for Billingsley? I just dropped Mulder for Robertson yesterday (I couldn't get Robertson's win/stats today. Blah).

I couldn't see the game for some odd reason. The sound worked but the video didn't. Hm.. Oh well, I checked Yahoo's summary report thing for Lester. Not bad. Still needs some control on the walks but a lot better this time around.

Lester looked real good last night. He was hitting his spots real well, working the corners. He showed fantastic poise, especially in his first jam of the game. (the 5th inning)

His first outing, he had to wait around 5 hours for the game to start due to rain. I think that really affected him. I think Lester is definetly worth owning in all leagues. ;-D

Will he continue to start? I have him in my minors and was wondering if he's worth bringing up.

Yes, with Clement being put on the dl, and David Wells already being on the dl, he has a spot in the rotation. ;-D
