Side note, i picked up Chris Davis for him though

PS I held onto Kershaw and Furcal who after hearing this news of their situations would have gotten the cut

Yer not the only one...

Dropped him in one league just before the game because of Capps's injury. I thought, well, unless he just goes nuts there's a decent chance he'll be available. Heh. Luckily kept him in the other 2 leagues.

I am now hoping for an 0-12 in the next couple games, and being that he isnt ranked by Yahoo, unless someone saw me drop him and put in a Waiver claim ASAP he might slip through cracks

Have Hamilton, Holliday, McClouth & Granderson.
I only play Kemp on off days or due to injuries
Should i drop him for Bruce?


Kemp and Bruce are pretty similar, IMO. Both have potential for high BA and good power numbers, but right now both are K machines. Personally, I think Bruce will have more value in the 2nd half, as Kemp will likely lose playing time as Jones and Pierre come back from injury.


McCouth i hate to say hasn't done much in quite a while it was a nice ride. I dropped him for Bruce after the 2hr game.

Funny how one good game with his most favorable conditions causes people to change their thinking yet again. Now if only Dusty Baker wouldn't hurt his development more by telling him to be more aggressive...

I made a stupid choice and dropped bruce for a spot start since i have a crowded outfield. Luckily my gut was that he would go off when i dropped him so i had him in the lineup yesturday but it sucks i won't be able to get him back

I tend to agree since we really need to see him do this for a week or so before he's "back"

He's on my bench. One more game like that, and he's back on the field.

Can't judge a move from one day's stats. We'll have to watch and see what Bruceboy does over the next 3-4 weeks to see if he's really worth a roster spot. And I had just dropped him the day before so my reaction was FU*K!!!. But... I picked up Ankiel for him who gave me a HR last night so I wasn't that upset.
