I picked him up for a spot start today (in a 14 team league!) and I think I'll keep him around for a little bit after todays game ;-D

And I had just about gotten ready to drop him...benched him for the first time because of his career 11+ ERA against ATL...figures. :-[

I'm going to hold onto him, and hopefully I'll be able to get those 4 starts in a row where he seems unhittable. Then bench him when he's hittable. Works for me !+)

ouch... well he really showed me didn't he? :-b Love the K/BB improvement, but those 3 HR's.... :-o

I'll hang on to him though... he showed some resilience in going 8 innings after that lackluster 1st inning...

Me too brotha, and personally I'm starting to bench him until his #'s indicate he is bettering his control. I mean I started him against Washington thinking it would be his bounce back start and he got hit, so now I can't trust him.


Well that worked... :,-(

I didn't catch his start yesterday. Can anyone comment on how he looked compared to his other starts this season. 10Ks and only 1 walk is drastically different than what he has previously shown us so far this year.

Did he finally shake off the rust? I'm still pretty high on him this year.
