I'm still spot-starting him depending on matchups, but I'm beginning to think the guy deserves automatic start status...

I'm in a 9 P league, and I usually go 6 SP/3 RP. I always start Webb and Zambrano (when not DL'ed), and then mix and match a group that includes Chamberlain, Maine, Burnett, Billingsley, Weaver, Danks, Pedro Martinez, and new pickup Johnny Cueto.

I start the guy every week. Riding the hot start, but he is looking veteren-esque this year!

Yesterdays game was definitely the best outing that I've seen from him all year. I would have liked to see him pitch the 9th and maybe get a chance for the win, but Ozzie has been conservative with him all year. Well I guess you can be a little conservative, when you have the best bullpen in the league.

Does anyone know if he is pitching sunday or monday? I have seen two conflicting reports.
90% of my posts are from complaining about my team :)

So Danks has to give up 15 ER without getting out of the 1st inning to get his ERA over 4.00 !+)
