I'm too stubborn to drop him, but stopped starting him a while back. I don't know when I'll hit my limit. Have many people kicked him to the WW yet?

He was dropped day before yesterday in my league...12 teams w/ deep benches. It's crazy seeing Sheff and Andruw Jones on the waiver wire - how the mighty have fallen!

3-4 today with 2 R. The double is a good sign too. Point to a turnaround on the horizon?

Supposedly he went back to his old swing with the leg kick and all. Concern is that his should won't be able to handle this for long. That said IMO he's more valuable to his team and to fantasy teams if he plays well 3 days a week or plays well for a few weeks at a time and then has to DL and rest shoulder.

He's been one of my favorite players, so I hope he turns this year around and leaves on a high note!

The reason he went away from his old swing is that his shoulders hurt too much. I am of three minds on this switch. One is that it is an act of desperation and that he will re-injure his shoulder and be done. Two is that his shoulder is feeling better and he is comfortable going back to his old swing, in which case he could return to fantasy relevance. The third thought is that he isn't feeling any better, but they feel if he swings like he used to he will break up some scare tissue and then recover. In this case I would expect early results, a slump, and then improvement.
I am very cautiously optimistic.
