um, verlander is worth owning, and has been ace caliber the last month..


I think he meant the group he got...either way, I like Lincy alone more than Verlander. Nice little trade you swung there, chief.

I think I like Lincecum better as well, but there's no reason to hate on Verlander after what he's been able to give us lately. If we get THIS for the rest of the year, I'll be happy with him.

I picked him up off waivers 3 weeks ago in a fairly shallow 12 man from an impatient owner. No complaints ;-D

so did I. Let them have Dempster or Contreras, and I'll gladly take Verlander off their hands ;-D

I'm feeling smart right now trading Lidge earlier this week for Verlander (I already have Mariano and Krod in a league where we only start two closers each day).

Verlander's velocity is up and hopefully he's on back on track now after putting together maybe 8 solid starts in a row.
