Biddle. Job opening?

Postby bolts801 » Fri Aug 29, 2003 11:19 pm

Were those his runners he let on tonight when he gave up the loss again tonight?

Just wondering.

If so, I don't see how he can keep his job anymore as a closer.

I haven't seen any recent updates on yahoo, or rotoworld. Has anyone else?

Should we all who have him drop his butt?!

I'm thinkin hard about it. He has single handedly blown my ERA for the week a couple of times. Yes, even with one inning lol :)

Perhaps picking up Ayala would be a good idea just in case.

:-?

Yeah, the runners were his. However, Ayala also gave up a run tonight in the 8th, so he might not look any better to Robinson. I don't think you can drop a guy with as many saves as he has outright. I would consider benching him until he turns it around, or better yet trade him to someone in need of saves desperately. He has a high save count but will only hurt your ERA and WHIP. If your trade deadline hasn't passed, I'd trade him away before he potentially loses his job and all his value.

Good advice JD.. thx.

ya, i had him on bench tonight .. thx the Lord. :)

My trade deadline has passed. I still have Smoltz, and picked up Aquillino, and Kolb for some extra while smoltz on the "alleged" DL.

Kolb prob not gonna have as many chances now.. or at least a few less chances now that Jenkins is out for the rest of the year. :(

He was just tearing it up too this last week. :( whoa is me.. whoooooa is me.

My run for 1st place in the league is gonna be harder than ever now. I only have Baldelli to take his place. Great player, but not hitting for power as of yet.

biddle...there is some unconventional force preventing me from dropping this sumbitch. it's killing me. i picked up ayala, hoping he'd make a convincing case for the job. no, no he hasn't, and i'm desperate for saves.

should i drop biddle for david weathers? should i drop ayala for david weathers? should i drop them both for david weathers and...david weathers' mom?

dammit, biddle. life was simple before you arrived. i should have known that a man named rocky would never provide a smooth ride.

yeah, yes...

Try Riske of CLE, or Kolb of Mil.

I too feel your biddle pain. I forgot to yank him again today and put him on the bench and LOW and BEHOLD ... 27.00 ERA in 2/3 of one inning pitched... SON OF AAAA!!!!!!! <img src=/forums/images/smiles/kiss.gif>

Raised my ERA 1.67points in 2/3s of an inning..geeezzz

my fellow owners don't sleep; kolb and riske are long gone. i saw them come up, but at the time, biddle was solid. kim was solid. guardado was great. i even had politte doing a great job.

now, i'm eating sh$t and circling david weathers like a vulture over last year's prey.

So did you snag Aquillino then, since Pollite will not get his job back?
