Poooor Adrian... goes 6R 5HR 8RBI .318 over the last week and drops in the rankings. I know its a one man show out there, but that seems a bit overly cruel %-6

Stephen Drew is playing again. I know he's had a hellacious start, but I assume his omission was an oversight?

He was activated the day after our rankings were finalized. He'll be there next week.

Any plans to move Danks down? He's only had one decent start in his last 4 and has mediocre K numbers so with his averages slipping his value is really deminished. I don't think there is any way he is the 17th best SP out there, and definately not in terms of Fantasy value.

He is one of only 3 of your top 50 SP on the wire in my primary league (Pettite for his history, and Slowey for his low Ks being the others). I might agree he shouldn't be there, but I certainly wouldnt drop the pitchers I own that you rate lower at this point. (Burnett, Harden, and the injured Carpenter/Zambrano). I tend to feel last year he got a bit lucky. At best I think I'd put Danks somewhere in the 30s-40s.

Danks is definitely moving down this week, but I'm not sure I'd say that he was lucky last year. His peripherals don't suggest that. I believe Danks will be around 28 this week.
