Don't give up on Floyd yet, there is a 3.08 difference between his ERA (7.00) and his FIP (3.92), his BABIP against is .381, it will even out, give it time.

I had to cut ties with Beckham. With Quentin and Grady also on the roster, I couldn't afford to carry another non-producer. The ceiling for Quentin and Grady are much higher than Beckham anyway. He looks absolutely lost right now, I think a trip to AAA to sort things out is much needed.

In terms of pitching, I'm nearly there with Kevin Slowey. I've given up hope that Brandon Webb or Chris Young (SD) will do anything for me this season. Also, Ben Zobrist has been infuriating, but I can't just out-right drop him because there's literally nothing out there in terms of SS.

Grady Sizemore... the man is dead to me.

After drafting him last year in the first round and making him one of my keepers this year... he's just rotting on my bench. The problem is, he seems to be dead to everyone else in the league also.

Don't you feel better already? I know I did after dumping him a few days ago. ;-D

And I very close with Slowey and Wandy. Those 2 are killing me.

I've got Slowey this season. I didn't think he's been that bad. Not getting a lot of QS but it's certainly not been a disaster or anything like that. What's your thinking on Slowey?

Slowey hasn't been terrible but at the same time, he hasn't been exactly that good either. He's on a winning ball club so there's always a good chance for wins, but he's borderline droppable in a 10-12 team mixed league.

Figgins is going to be dropped from my team as early as tonight, and I have Sizemore in my other league too, but I am not as down on him as Figgins.

I cant believe Carlos Lee is up on the list. He's been battling keeping his avg above the mendosa line the whole year.

Help Me and Advice me please:

The 5 wins are nice, but honestly there's not much to like beyond that. 4.70 ERA, atrocious 1.57 WHIP... ugh
