Really? Chris Young hasn't been that bad this year, at least not any worse than projections, if not better.
.238 avg, 13 HRs, 39 RBis, 47 Runs, and 4 steals. I was expecting about 10 or so more steals, but the other numbers are all pretty decent, on pace for about 90 RBIs, over 100 Runs, and 28 ding dongs?
I don't know what the main-line projection for him was, but one I just found quickly at fantasysportscentral had him ranked as the 20th OFer with numbers of... .251 AVG, 31 HRs, 76 RBIs, 89 Runs, and 28 SBs. The only number that he's really behind on is the stolen bases.
I definitely wouldn't call him a "cancer".
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.
Roy Oswalt and M. Cain for me. I almost cut both lose last week, but they both went out and produced solid:
Oswalt: 7 IP, ER, 10K Cain: 7 IP, 3 ER, BB, 11K (I'm in a K/9 league, so this was gold)
Sad thing was last week a guy offered me a trade that involved M.Cain. I countered offered and gave up T.Hudson instead. I'm still believing that Cain and Oswalt will come around. Plus in a k/9 league, Hudson was killing me every week.
I don't really start either right now, They have both been riding my bench since week 5 or so. My pitching is deep enough w/out them that I'm constantly winning the pitching cats w/out them:
V-Mart JJ Hardy Kuroda (started him everytime except when he pitched the complete game shut out with 11k) Beltre (his HR's are nice but his overall production has sucked) Ibanez (started nice then his average dropped to the .260's)
