yes, yes, im so happy. man what a great deal when i traded Loaza/Salmon/Bagwell for Sosa/Giambi. Well great season Esteban but this was bound to happen sooner or latter.

THE BEST PART IS NOW NO ONE CAN ARGUE LOAZA BETTER THEN HUDSON.

Hudson now owns the best ERA in the AL and all he had to do was turn on TV and watch Loaza get shelled.

Hudson for Cy Young, best ERA in the AL

Well that's part of it. The other part is that I personally don't like him because he should have pitched like he has this season when he WAS a Ranger! :-[ Lol. :-D

I have Loaiza in two leagues and despite the fact that he has been good, I figured considering this is the Rangers at the Ballpark in Arlington, I'd let discretion be the better part of valor and sit him in both. After all, I already had a CG under my belt from Prior in both leagues also. I'm very relieved to have left him riding the pine today. In any case, this doesn't discredit his season as a whole, it's just one bad game. It kind of annoys me when people root for a guy to fail just because they were incredulous of his ability to sustain a long period of success.

Dontrelle caught the same kind of flack earlier this week for his bad start and I think it's kind of a cheap shot to take at a guy who's had the season that Loaiza's had, and I thought it was a cheap shot at Dontrelle as well. By the way Gses, the guy who gave you Giambi and Sosa for Bagwell, Loaiza and Salmon is an idiot.

Horrible trade.

First my post about Loaza was not meant to put the guy down. Im happy he imploded because it now means Hudson is first in ERA in the AL at 2.51, where as Loaaza is now at 2.55

Loaiza great season and I be;ieve he is for real much like Jason Schmidt who people doubted his success the past few years.

My Trade was in early May right when Bagwell led the majors in HR's and was the April MVP. Salmon was riding a 20 game hit streak, and Loaza was unhitable with an ERA in the 1's. Also at this point Giambi was batting .190 where as Bagwell was ranked in the top 10 in Yahoo rankings.

I traded Bagwell/Loaiza/Salmon

and I got

Giambi and sosa

I would be happy, but I'm too busy being depressed about Randy and Woody. I didn't start both in any one league, and started Prior in most of them, but still ... :-(
