I would drop Dumpster for Zimmerman. Jay-Z has a better park to play in and is obviously younger, which may or may not be better but I like the post Tommy John surgery potential.

If you really want to pick up Zimmerman why not drop Desmond. Are you ever going to play him with Hanley at SS?

I do play Desmond at utility on occasion. We play 3 utility. Is Brown coming up soon?

Hard to say on Brown. He's had 6 games at AAA, and doing well.
But he has looked lost when he was up.

SIG, btw, League is killing Seattle.
I hated the Morrow trade, because Morrow has such a high ceiling.
Seattle should have won the last 2 versus Baltimore.

Oh I seriously agree... The funny thing is I was kicking myself 5 days ago for dropping League cuz he had like 9 saves in a row. Looks like I can stop kicking now.

I grew up an O's fan (back when they were good in 96-97), but honestly it amazes me that that team can hit the way they do (beat up on my Felix) but still suck so bad in the standings. Worst owner in baseball for sure in Angelos.

Who's the closer in waiting if League loses the gig and Aardsma isnt back/right?

I thought you were a M's fan given the Griffey name?

Really nobody.
Laffey?
Wright?
Pauley?

They will just have to hope League bounces back.
