Alex Gordon and Frenchy in a 20 teamer...

I HAVE to start them, its a 20 teamer and I devoted too many spots to futures picks (Bailey, Bruce, Snider, Parker, Lowrie, Moustakas, Cahill, Gamel) so I didnt have much of a bench.

Im actually starting Casilla as my DH right now after finally benching Franceuor, and Gordon probably wont leave my lineup.

Could traded Gordon and Zumaya for Longoria and Shields before the season started... Killing me.

Cincinatti pitching has been the destroyer of my team ERA and losses all season. Harang and Cueto specifically. Finally cut Cueto a few weeks ago but Harang has continued to destroy all by himself. Hopefully tonight he wont be so bad but been hoping tonight is the night all year so whatever.

I am pretty sure that one of the Hs in HGH stands for Hafner. Maybe both.

I was able to trade him for Carlos Pena about a month into the season.

"Cincinatti pitching has been the destroyer of my team ERA and losses all season"

--------- I feel that, I vow to never draft a Reds pitcher again. Last year I thought I was getting a steal when I drafted Arroyo in the 16th round, he sucked. This year I was feeling real good about Harang, we both know how that worked out. I'll be avoiding Edison Volquez next year unless he falls deep into the draft, which he won't.

Adam Dunn's abysmal average, even lower than usual. %-6 ... .228 on the season -- the second-lowest average in his eight-year career. Dragged down by .195 over the last month.

This guy is a vet, why can't he find his stroke? It's a high price to pay for 22 jacks.

Which is why I never, ever had him.

Players of his prototype do not age well either.

V-Mart for me. When he went on the D.L. I picked up Kelly Shoppach. Who would've thought at the start of the year I'd actually be happy about putting Martinez on the D.L. to acquire Shoppach??

Konerko and Chris B Young for me. I was expecting much more from Young. He's not running, and he's done next to nothing for the past month!! I'm in a H2H league, so lengthy cold streaks are tough to swallow. I also have Weeks and Dunn in this league, but since we count OBP instead of avg, they have been actually ok. Still want more from them, they've both been cold lately.

Cueto has actually pitched better in his recent stretch. You should give him another look.

As for Harang, he's been really horrid. I drafted him in 3 of the 5 redrafts I was in. I could live with the HR rate but the difference is he's been more hittable and had an ugly penchant for getting baserunners on board when he gives up the big hit.
