Good question. He is still available in my league and I am considering dropping Nick Johnson or Jair Jurgens for him.

His ownership has jumped to 23% in CBS leagues as he has been looking great this year. He is up against Baltimore next and I would expect another solid outing from the curve ball specialist.

It comes down to whether he can keep it up and hold onto his rotation spot. So far so good, well, atleast against detroit. I would be picking him up before his next start if you want him, since if he nails it for a third gamein a row, he is going to vanish off most deeper leagues waivers.

I personally really want to grab him. Might be time for me to drop Homer Bailey. Damn, will I regret this if he gets called up any time soon.

I could be wrong, so hopefully somebody can either back this up or shoot this down, but I remember hearing that the Reds plan on giving Bailey about 10 starts in the minors before thinking about calling him back up.

Bailey should have been dropped awhile ago imo.

I was laughed at and mocked for listing Floyd as a sleeper in the pre-season, despite him fitting the very definition of the word perfectly. The only other person who seemed to want to give him a shot was hybrid. I still think if you start him appropriately, he'll give you good value in leagues with 14+ teams. Another start or two, and he may be a must add in 12-teamers as well.

Would you drop Arroyo for Floyd? I only have two FA pickups I can make before the ASB. Should I use one now? I was also looking at Eveland or Neiman

If I was only allowed to make 2 FA Pickups before the ASB, I think I'd hold off on all you listed. Eveland would be my first choice, but even that's a big dice roll when you can only make 1 other move before the break...

See what others think in the DTKW Forum.

before you jump on the Floyd bandwagon check on his stats against Detroit and vs the rest of the league.
