Quiet contributers

Postby kingmike74 » Fri May 30, 2008 10:02 am

Just wondering if anyone else in a mixed league has Rasner and Danks on their WW.

I have watched the past 2 weeks as Danks and Rasner continue to impress and they just sit on the wire.

Meanwhile I mess with Pettitte and Lowe until I go nuts.

There's a ton of pitchers like that this season...take a look at Jesse Litsch's season statistics, or Greg Smith's.

That is precisely why I traded away all of my pitching

Baseball tonight ran their mouth about Contreras last week and he got sucked up in 2 of my leagues.

The injury bug finally outran my team depth on a couple teams so I picked up Rasner in both of them. Danks was already owned in all my leagues.

I am torn between Danks, Rasner. I like Danks start next week v.s. KC but I think Rasner might have a nice ryn going while Danks is due for a letdown.

This guy has been a beast. I have him in two leagues and he's been fantastic. Last two stars- 16 innings, 0 earned runs. And nobody's saying anything.

I watched this kid pitch yesterday, and he has impeccable control of all his pitches. He was getting some comparisons to Roy Halladay. Mainly because he stole certain things from Halladays practice routine, but also the walk to IP ratio.
