Anyone else?

Postby bolts801 » Wed Sep 03, 2003 11:39 pm

Anyone else out there like me that picked up Trachsel but was too chicken to start him against the Braves today even though he's been hot!

I figured he was due for an implosion.

I chickened out like 5 minutes before game time and I was in close close race with ERA so far this week.

DO"HHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHHH

Low n behond Trachsel post's a 1.12 ERA, and like .64 WHIP on the game plus the win......... whoa is me whoooooooooaaaaaa is me :(

I do not own Trachsel, and even with how hot he has been, I would have benched him against Atlanta.

Madison is right. I'm sure you're not the only Trachsel owner to leave him on the bench... I know I would have.

I started Trachsel without a second thought.

Any Mets fan can tell you that Trachsel is a completely different pitcher in the second half than in the first half. He has been great in the second half for the last 3 years running now. Even if he falters in one start, he bounces back the next one. Since he was shaky his last time out against Philly, I knew he was due today.

Plus it was a cold, rainy day here in New York - them southern folk don't warm up too well when the thermometer dips like it did today. :-D

I think it's hysterical that there is some bug in this program that keeps changing the angry smiley face to the kissey smiley face.

It's happened to me a few times. Here I am, slamming away a post, venting my frustration, then, boom, I go to check my message and there's that friggin' kissy face! Ah, well, it always makes me laugh, and that's as good as I can ask for.

Yes...I would have benched him as well. Gutsy move to start him if anyone did.
