Last time I checked I was the only team without a save or win, so your pitching can't be that bad :-B

Everytime I even think to go for a closer he's gone in the blink of an eye.

I would be happy with a week of just average to slightly bad performances - every time I check out one of my starters he's getting shelled (with the exception of one start by Hudson). But if I thought these guys were good when I bought them I should stick with them until they come around, right? That's the way it works, right? :-S



Cockcroft at ESPN had an interesting answer to a very similar question. He said to list your draft picks in order in a column and then number them one to however long your draft was from the bottom up.. Baring injury or a total meltdown by a player, that's how may weeks you should hold on to a player before you cut him.

Interesting idea on how long to hold on to a disappointing player. I was really just being a bit silly though. You can't judge the situation after less than 10 games. But when it starts stretching into May ....

I got killed in my H2H pool last week by Edgar Renteria of all people. Only one HR but the pool is based on wRC so his 12 for 30 start with a few walks thrown in really hurt. Now I just need one of my guys to get really hot this week. ;-D

Kinda figured that. But you would be amazed at how many of the posts on the ESPN FLB board are player drop questions.

You gotta realize that most of those guys abandon their teams by the 4th of July, so they don't have time to wait for a player to pan out. :-b

Hill, Montero, Fuentes. Who's next?

Tex is pissing me off. I'm one of the most impatient people when it comes to fantasy. Who knows maybe you could steal him. I mean i traded Mark Reynolds last year for Matt Lindstrom.

The first one is a special one - but then so are the others that come along. And just think Boomer it will only be two decades of worry and financial struggle until you're an empty nester like me with all the time in the world to put together a mediocre fantasy team like the Asterisks! :*)

And kudos to Seventh Day for snapping up Rauch and leaving the rest of us in the dust in the saves department. !+)
