Vance Worley back up, Blanton's cranky elbow DL'ed again.

How is Rizzo not up yet? I dropped him a few days ago and it figures Yahoo put his name on the front page today...

Wellll...he is hitless in his last 4 games. Only 2 XBHs in his last 10.

That spurt was it for him, I hope. 8-o I want Rizzo!!!

Rizzo was a DNP on Saturday. The Tucson game was shortened...not sure if rain was a factor.

Beween Ackley and Lawrie, is there anyone who thinks they won't get they call in a couple weeks? Also, who has the bigger fantasy impact the rest fo the season?

I'd be surprised if Moose and Jennings weren't up within 2 weeks. I don't see the love for Ackley though, he'll be a fine major league player but I don't see a ton of value for fantasy purposes...kinda reminds of Polanco in terms of fantasy value. :-?

I completely agree. Ackley love is misplaced. He's a guy I'd use to fill in for injured players and depth, but nobody I'd have on my sleeper list.

3rd'd (is that even a word)

Ackley peaks out as a .280 10-10 imo, which has no place even in deep mixed leagues, playing in Safeco, will decrease his numbers, and his run production will be limited.

FWIW Blanks will be up before Rizzo. There is absolutely no point in the Padres starting Rizzo's clock at all this year imo. It just speeds up the process that he will be traded back to Boston

Rizzo hit another bomb today, and Lawrie hit 2 more!

Would you rather own Rizzo or Moustakas for 2011? What about 2012?

im thinking neither for 2011, Betemit and Aviles are still doing pretty well. Rizzo Ive stated my opinion.

2012, Moustakas, simply because as weve seen this year, 3B is so thin
