and to think I took him over Ubaldo and Garza.

I was up and down on him all spring. But then finally up on him at the time of the draft. And am stuck with him.

I thought he fell apart at the end of the year last year because of his preseason hip injury. That didn't let him get his conditioning in.

But he is only throwing 90-91 mph. Something isn't right. Hopefully it's just a mechanical thing.

In other news, Matt Kemp is a stud :-° Thanks for erasing the loss at least, Doyers.

I am a Bills owner too. Fortunately, I also own Votto, Bruce and Kemp. I am first in my money league in ERA and dead last in WHIP. How does that even happen?!

Honestly, I am definitely worried about his start. Glad I only own him in one league.

I'm a little worried, can't decide if I should sell him for "80 cents to the dollar" or wait it out. Patience is a virtue...for now.

I doubt you could get 80 cents on the dollar for him right now.

I don't know, there could be people out there looking to buy low and take a chance on a guy with this much upside.

I think it'd come off more as an act of desperation if you start actively shopping him now. You'd have a lot more bargaining power if someone else approaches you with an offer (it'd be easier to use his upside as a bargaining chip).

Luck, I imagine. I'd be worried that your ERA may soon explode, too.
