Same argument could be made for S.F. Giants pitchers, but they've got a couple of productive cookies goin' on there themselves. I don't blackball any pitcher (or dock them too severely, even) just because of what team they pitch for. Ollie Perez put together a Cy Young caliber season with the Pirates when they were just as awful as they are now.

Ditto. Before I outright dropped him in May, he and Bills were killing my pitching stats. Of course, losing Smoltz and Gallardo for the season didn't help either. Snell's a mess...total flop this year. You're better off letting someone else take the risk unless you enjoy toturing yourself with bad spot starts...
