Fausto Carmona

Postby steela2110 » Thu Apr 02, 2009 11:25 pm

Hey I was wondering if anyone could shed light on this dude for me.... I drafted him on my team in my CBS league but it says he is suspended next to his name for 5 games.... Is that going to take place at the beginning of the 09 season? I am in a weekly lineup league so I have to get my lineup set and I am confused as to whether this dude is going to actually play or not.

I don't know about any suspensions for Carmona, but I do know that he's bound to have a nice bounce back year (as will V-Mart and Pronk if you're a Tribe fan). So if you managed to draft him late in your league or picked him up off the FA list then you did a nice job, good sleeper pick!! ;-D

He's eligible to return April 8th, so I think he's pitching in the first week.
0-3 to 4-3. Worst choke in the history of baseball. Enough said.

I am ineterested by this... I swear I looked into him last week and read somewhere that he got suspended for steroid use... and my memory is a (and this sounds INSANE) FIFTY game suspension... now, that could have been a typo somewhere if his suspension is really only FIVE games....?

I cannot find anything out about it now, other than he seems to be suspended for only 5 games (cbs info, which is what 7you already have).

I am watching this thread and looking for further updates/more certain info from someone in the know... any Indian's fans out there...? There have to be SOME right...? :)
This game means nothing.... unless I'm winning!

Indians fan here. Fausto was suspended six games at the end of last year for a brawl with Gary Sheffield. It was reduced to five games. Since the incident happened with only a couple games left, maybe he has to sit out a couple to start this year. However I have not heard or read anything about Carmona's suspension (if it does even carry into this year) affecting his turn in the rotation.

FYI, he's pitching today in Houston.

EDIT: Paul Hoynes of the Plain Dealer says Carmona is scheduled to pitch the Indians second game. So don't worry about Fausto. I expect him to have a bounce back year.

Crazy! Thanks for the help to everyone.... I am really hoping for a bounce back from Fausto and he has pitched pretty well this spring.... Good luck to all...

I am going to go ahead and put him in my weekly lineup then
