Walden has been terrible the past 3 and a half weeks. Axford has a career 2 and a half ERA if I'm not mistaken and am I wrong in saying MIL should do better than the Angels.

Who would take the job from Farnsworth? I haven't heard of his job in jepordy.

Also, what do you think of Fernando Salas?

This is correct. Walden will be fine, and the Angels will win some close games with that staff.
If you are hellbent on dropping a pitcher for him then it's Farnsworth, personally I would drop Izturis. He's really not doing much for you.

Tough. I'd asuredly pick up Axford, but as for who to drop...wow. Walden and Farnsworth both have equally rocky numbers over the last two weeks, but with RP long term is better than right now. I'd hazard to guess that Farnsworth will keep his job because of how they're playing when everyone expected the Rays not to contend this year, and the lack of arms behind him.


Salas....Ahhhhhh, Fernando Salas. He's got the stuff to do the job, Lord knows. My only concern with him is the one i touched on in my post (http://www.fantasybaseballcafe.com/forums/viewtopic.php?t=431452, thanks for the help, btw) that LaRussa will flop him in and out willy nilly with Sanchez and such.

So yeah, Axford for Walden, by an old man's ear hair.

Farnsworth should keep his job all season. He's historically bad in the playoffs, but not bad in the regular season. Since no one is gunning for his job, I see no reason for you not to drop Walden. Axford makes his saves scary (I have him AND have had a few brewers SPs....) but does get the job done.

Walden for Axford.


Thanks for the help on mine. :)
