4/28: Venting, Cheering and a lot less info than wr posts

Postby AquaMan2342 » Thu Apr 28, 2011 2:53 am

I can't believe I thought I had a $13 bargain on this guy in my auction league:
Rotoworld wrote:It may officially be time to be concerned about Minnesota's ace, who now owns a 9.13 ERA, 18/18 K/BB ratio and 1.90 WHIP through five starts and 23 2/3 innings. Don't be surprised if the Twins announce tomorrow they are skipping his next turn through the rotation, or perhaps even that they've "discovered" an injury that necessitates a trip to the disabled list.


Might be time to take a look at Bartolo Colon in all formats; he was consistently hitting 95 on the gun in the 8th inning tonight. It's still early but he has a sub-3 xFIP and has looked excellent so far.
Ozzie Guillen wrote:Wow. I can't remember seeing him like that since he was in Cleveland or with the Angels. His ball was moving great. I feel proud of him, especially after knowing all the arm issues that he has gone through. Buehrle was good tonight, but Colon was better.


Tex's shoulder shouldn't be an issue; he's day to day.

Interesting pitching matchups: Morrow vs Ogando, Pineda vs. Penny....call it a hunch but I'd sit Ogando.

Buy Low: Yovani Gallardo. He's usually a slow starter and none of his pitches seem to be acting any differently.

I picked up Brad Penny three days ago for his start against the M's. I'm desperate for pitching and now I'm getting cold feet with all the runs the Mariners have scored this series.

Throwing Penny and McClellan tomorrow. My pitching is complete toast though after Boggs, Coke, Perez, and friends decided it was cool to tank my week on Tuesday.

I didn't have the sac to pick up Penny. Went with Baker in Game 2 against Niemann and TB today instead. Based on how my week, and basically year, have gone, you can expect Tampa to win that game 10 - 0.

On the fence about Morrow @Texas. On the one hand, it's @Texas. On the other hand, they're certainly a swing-happy bunch.

On the fence myself between Niemann @ Min or Penny vs. Sea... Why the hell did Seattle have to start hitting and make this tough for me...
