Just to make it clear. I'm not rooting against Loaiza. Honestly, I do doubt that he could do this all year. I'm the first to admit that I thought people were jumping the gun on him early in the season and overvaluing him. I'll also admit that until tonight, I am wrong. Loaiza would have been a valuable assett to anyone's fantasy team, even with tonight's implosion.

As far as Dontrelle, I'm one of the few that stick up for the kid. He got rocked after the rain delay and quite a few people freaked out. I knew it was the rain. He settled down for a few games, then got rocked again. I've still got him in 3 leagues and he will be in my starting lineup of all 3 in his next start. No worries from me. ;-)
Yes doctor, I am sick.
Sick of those who are spineless.
Sick of those who feel self-entitled.
Sick of those who are hypocrites.
Yes doctor, an army is forming.
Yes doctor, there will be a war.
Yes doctor, there will be blood.....

wow i havent been paying attentian to willis posts cuz I defend him also and i think those that trash him simply were not fast enough to pick him up. As madison said the rain in chicago was the reason for that blow up and the last one VS Dodgers, well every SP has a bad day.

And oh ya some say he never went against a good team, well thats true early in his season but the did shut down the Braves. Willis is a stud, I love him, fans love him, he has changed the marlins, i love the marlins, hegave life to that team, that team now mmakes money and draws crowds cuz of WILLIS, and when Willis arrived the marlins became a wild card contnder. The Marlins were a last place team not to long ago.

Wilis is an ace this year, next year, and next year I will draft him cuz i know he is a cy young contender next year.

So which of those 3 players did you trade to get Giambi and Sosa? The guy gave you Giambi and Sosa just FOR LOAIZA?????

Jury, he mentioned twice that he dealt Bagwell, Loaiza, and Salmon for Giambi and Sosa. It was a 3-for-2 deal.
