DON"T MESS WITH ME.

You mean to tell me Wedge and Shapiro made the RIGHT call, and didn't have to wait a month to remind themselves that Dellucci was half of a terrible platoon in left, then lost that job completely to Benny last year, and that there was a reason for that?

On the other side, Joe Smith to the DL. Bullpen was bad before, now it's just falling apart. C'mon Tony Sipp!

And I almost dropped LaPorta last night for Ryan Madson in a 12 team h2h pts league where I'm about 20pts down, and Hamilton just went on the DL.

From Rotoworld:



Matt LaPorta, called up to the big leagues Saturday, starts in right field today against the Detroit Tigers.

Luis Valbuena is also making his debut at second base with Asdrubal Cabrera giving the struggling Jhonny Peralta the day off. Assuming LaPorta does what he does best -- hit -- he could be a nice value in fantasy leagues once he gets eligibility at 1B, LF and RF, as Wedge plans to play him at those positions.

2-Run Dinger so far tonight, Garko broke up Tallet's No-No in the 7th and LaPorta stepped up next batter in line and broke up the shutout...

I am sorry but I completely unaware of LaPorta's talent level...I take it that you don't think he can be likened to Braun/Longoria...why is that?
