yeah, its one of the benefits in being in a 8 person league. its way way different from my "real" league, which is an 18 team h2h.

this 8 team league is roto 4x4 with no DL spots. so, the waiver wire is not utilized unless your player is really struggling. to drop and pick someone up costs 10 dollars per transaction. it is also a 200 dollar buy in so a lot of money is at stake!

(its pretty much the only reason why i joined, i hate roto, and only 8 teams makes everyones team all star studded.)

im currently in 2nd 2 points off the lead.

Harris: Crisco, Bardol, Vagisil. Any one of them will give you another two to three inches drop on your curve ball.

I heard he was to have an MRI on Tuesday, does anyone know anything on the results? I am not dropping him til I know he won't be back this year.

I have not heard anything from the MRI - but I would love to know. My free agent bid is due today and I can grab Padilla or Meche if he is done for the season...

Any word would be great....

Jul. 19 - 4:52 pm et

John Patterson will undergo exploratory surgery on Thursday to examine the median nerve and lacertus fibrosis in his right forearm.

The Nationals haven't declared him out for the year, but a return in 2006 is quite a long shot. The club should just be hoping that he'll be 100 percent at the start of next year.

KFFL

Jul 19 ESPNews reports Washington Nationals SP John Patterson (elbow) will have exploratory surgery on his right elbow and is likely done for the season.


It looks like it's time to waive Patterson. :~( :-t

Even though it's not official that he's gone for the season, I don't see why the Nats would bring him back anyway since they are not going to the playoffs, so why not get him 100% for next year?

Looks like he is out for the season according to ESPN:


MIAMI -- Washington Nationals right-hander John Patterson will undergo exploratory surgery on his right forearm Thursday and is unlikely to pitch again this season, manager Frank Robinson said.
"I don't think there is very much he can do to try to come back," Robinson said following the Nationals' 1-0 loss Wednesday to Florida. Patterson's injury has sent him to the disabled list twice this season. He is 1-2 with a 4.43 ERA in eight starts. Patterson was one of Washington's most reliable pitchers last year, going 9-7 with a 3.13 ERA in 31 starts. He struck out 185 batters and walked 65 in 198 1/3 innings.

Time to drop him I guess. What a waste of space this year. Arghh!
