Hey just curious when Branyan or Chris Carpenter will ever make the cut. Branyan is having a fantastic year/career year and Carpenter is pitching lights out.

Otherwise I mostly agree, hate to see Grady slowly move down but it's bound to happen at this pace. :-t

I do understand that most people don't endorse Branyan and Carpenter is an injury risk but where do they get to the point where people begin to recognize.

I've had Branyan right on the cusp the last few weeks. Unfortunately, he's starting to cool off a bit. If a few guys ahead of him go into slumps, it's very likely Branyan could take someone's spot. Carpenter just came back from the DL, and it wasn't in time to make this week's rankings. I suspect he'll be back in there next week.

Yeah. Branyan is close and Carpenter will be there next week. Lots of things happened on Monday to Wednesday this week, including Reyes and Bartlett going on the DL. These all will be reflected in next week's rankings. ;-D
