You guy are wimps. trading away someone when you have info that your opponent doesn't know about is making a smart move. Its there fault for not doing there homework.

I tend to agree with TML. Let me emphasize that I am not reprimanding the original poster or those who agree with him. Karma aside, TML is entirely correct on this point...

Gamblers often say, "You can shear a sheep many times, but skin it only once." If you pull off a lopsided trade in Week 1, all of your leaguemates will be very wary of trading with you for the rest of the season. There is a strategic disadvantage to being perceived, rightly or wrongly, as a swindler.

Dropping Escobar would be a wonderful idea, i think he wil decide to have the surgery. Drop/Trade this guy if you can or under no circumstances draft him, there are plenty of other pitchers out there who will put better number than Escobar, especially if he comes back from his injury, his stuff wont be nearly as good.

:-C
Escobar sure did screw up my rotation...I'll just have to find a gem or three throughout the year on the waiver wire and hope for the best.

I agree. Trading injured players is lame. but... trading for an injured player and not doing your homework is just plain dumb! I really dont think bookie was implying that was his plan anyway. afterall he did make a post about the injury. :-)

I'm quickly running out of DL spots and I'm wondering how to handle Escobar. Should I just cut bait on him or wait it out and see if he returns?
