i feel bad for gallardo. he was on the way to a great season and being an elite pitcher...i hope this setback doesn't halt his progress. since i'm in a keeper league that allows me to keep gallardo as a 20th rd. pick for next year, i'm keeping him on my DL...but it's bad news for a lot of gallardo owners.
5x5 12-team league w/5 keepers.
as of 5/02: 2nd place; 5/27: 6th

I couldn't wait. Billingsley was available in one league, and I didn't want to risk losing out on him. After that, the pickings get very slim.

Adios, Yovani. I hardly knew ye...

Gallardo was the key to my pitching success, his chances of being an ace was going to put my pitching above average....now :-o

A guy who I believed in, but for one reason or another, didn't get an opportunity to invest in at a price I was comfortable with. Just goes to show you that Fantasy Sports are just as much luck as skill.

I get the sense that a lot of you guys are regretting the fact that you drafted Gallardo...which imo, shouldn't be the case

I'm more disappointed that he went down than anything about hating him/never draft again list/etc..

I'm GLAD I drafted him this year and I'm glad it paid off for the limited amount of games he started this year. This guy can be a real stud to come.

I look forward to drafting him again next year, where I'd probably be able to draft him dirt cheap!

So is he out for the year? I need to make a decision now so I can get a fill-in for Upton at 2B for a couple of days.
