Postby Galileo » Mon May 26, 2008 1:58 am

Anyone with the latest word on his calf muscle? Can he be started with confidence this week? (vs BOS and DET)

The Queen is a must-bench vs both those teams if his calf was 100% healthy.

To answer the OP - I own him and I haven't heard anything + or -, but it doesn't make any difference to me because I'm benching him anyway...

It's Monday for crying out loud...
Any given start he can come out and completely dominate his opposition..You want to see him on the bench when that happens...?

Well he has to turn it around sometime? He was money early in the season, so why not now? 2 starts from Felix only happens so often, so take advantage while you can. He did dominate the Sox the last time he saw them. Both starts are at home where he is typically money, just hopes he gets some Run support. If you are like me and have 2 guys on the DL, Young and Smoltz, 2 guys you are waiting on, Joba and Kershaw, and a slumping Wang. Your options aren't too good and Felix looks pretty good!! ;-D

A poor start(s) from Felix won't do anything to help that in either entendre.

JC - Fortunately for me I don't have to make such decisions since I'm in a daily/roto.

However, regardless of league format the issue is clear: Felix is pitching as poorly right now as he has in the last 2 yrs. He's receiving less run support than he has in his career. He's coming off an injury that caused him to get bumped.

There's no question he's capable, but considering the current circumstances, why in the world would you start him right now against two of the most stacked offenses in MLB?

Against KC, Toronto or some similar offensively challenged team, sure I'd start him. BOS and DET? No thanks.

Because Boston's bats are a bit cold right now, they're 10-17 on the road, Felix has a career 2-0 record with a 2.91 ERA and 1.02 WHIP against them, and Colon is making just his 2nd start since last year????

I don't know, that's why I'm starting him. It sure as heck paid off for me when I started Duscherer the other night even though Beckett was the opposing pitcher. I'm not expecting a 1 hitter tonight, but I'm expecting a W from Felix. That and the fact that it's Monday, how can you not start him?

Nice to see you decided to chime in after the 4run 8th.

I mean 2 hits through 7 innings and you were nowhere to be found. What a troll.
