Due to my vast knowledge, I would say that it would be better to sit him today and wait a start until he gets his groove back.

3.2 IP and 5 ERs for Harden today.

A guy in my deeper league dropped Gaudin when the news broke that he was headed to the pen. I'm happy I picked him up yesterday.

He only used fastball/changeup today. Maybe the results will be better once he mixes in his slider and spuckle in his next start.

maybe the results will be better once he has a bionic arm.

Nah, he'll just start hurting his back and leg. ;-)

In his only other two starts this year(both against the Red Sox), he also only used Fastball/changeup. I highly doubt we'll see very many splitters or sliders the rest of the year. It was stated earlier this year by the team that this has been done in part to hopefully keep him healthier.

This guy's stuff is so nasty, he can live on fastball/change and still be dominate(as was the case in both starts against the Red Sox). It appears today he just was hanging the change and cutter up a bit at times. The fastball looked pretty nasty though, and his velocity looked solid hitting 93-95.

I wonder if Hampton, Prior and Harden all hang out together. Why even bother with him?

No one's forcing you to type in this thread. This thread is in the "Injuries" forum for a reason.

Wow..he was just joking.

No one's forcing you to have a sense of humor, but it would be nice if you did.
