Yeah it's a bit extreme considering the kid gloves they handle Lilly with.

:-?
He's already been skipped twice, including the scheduled start before the most recent meltdown. It was to work on his mechanics (presumably, with the pitching coach). Hill's lost right now. Hopefully AAA agrees with him, as it has before.

p.s. - To all the Liriano/Hill sufferers out there: I'll see your pain, and raise you Gallardo, Hill and Hughes, with Soriano as my second closer. Can't wait for '09.

No I said I would rather waste a late pick on Harden than a middle round pick on Liriano. But you know what, both of them went way too high for me and didn't get either of them in any league. I did end up with Sheets though. :,-( :~(

I've hit the injury bug as well. Gallardo, Harden, Tulo, A. Soriano, and Pedro. The funny thing is that I only drafted one of them(Harden). I traded Sheets for Soriano and Furcal/Longoria for Tulo. And Gallardo was dropped a week into the season(used my #1 priority) and Pedro passed waivers.

Well, at least you didn't say Brandon Webb would be a bust and that Rich Harden would outproduce him like some other guy I know.

I really don't know what to make of Hill. His command problems would've been a tolerable issue given his upside, but he's not producing at the K rate hoped for and needless to say, he's been a massive disappointment. Hope a AAA stint will sort him out.
