What's your point? That he shouldn't have been dropped in the first place because he clearly still had perceived value? Or is it that he is so bad that people pick him up because of his name and realize he is terrible?
i'm in a 12 team roto league with people here in the cafe. i drafted zito this year because he was going to the NL. i thought that would result in both lower era and higher Ks. neither has occurred.
right now, his K rate is horrendous and was eating up my innings too much for the amount of Ks he was giving me. even when he's on, zito is a high whip pitcher. suffice to say, he's not even on right now (1.40+ whip). if he's going to give me weak Ks and a high whip, he's at least going to have to give me a low 3s era (like gorzelanny - who i AM using). right now it's at what, 4.50? well, at least he's winning lots of games, no wait ....
i think he's very droppable in a standard 12 team league. i knew no one in my league was newbie enough for me to pawn zito off to just based on his name. infact, during the draft people told me i drafted him too high, and it was one of those times where i was flat out wrong and they were right.
