I strongly disagree. For 17/18th round value he is teh sex. He had a tremendous 2nd half last year, but was unlucky with hit rate and strand percentage in that half, so his ERA doesn't show it.

Yeah that pretty much sums up that statement. Rich Harden making 30+ starts has about as much chance as me seeing pics of Michael's wife.



I do have one serious suggestion though, perhaps Michael could slow down a lil when doing his half, it feels like you rush rush sometimes like you're on a time limit.

Now we aren't going to get any value for him at all !+)

I just hate him, so I am probably over biased - I'm wiling to agree to disagree though :-]

The wife picks have a MUCH higher probability, believe me, LOL! :-D

OMG, some actual feedback! Awesome! You mean just in this episode or in general? If you just mean this one, I especially agree - we were getting a bit long-winded and I was trying shorten it up, but in retrospect it was a little breathy ;-)

It seems like over the last two or three you have sped up a lot.
Maybe you could cut one or two less important guys off your list so you can relax, and not feel pressed for time ;-D

Word - during the season, I think we have a great forumla for time, but I always think these preseason ones have a tendency to get long-winded...to offset that, I think we need to plan for less, so when it runs long it's no biggie and we don't have to worry about it.

Thanks for the heads up, it's much appreciated ;-D
