Me. I'm trotting him out there.

Me too. I'm behind on ERA and WHIP anyway but one up in W and a decent amount of Ks ahead so I have little to lose.

You bring up 1980's NZ pop and don't even mention The Clean. Shameful.

Dave Duncan can do no wrong? Lance Lynn has given up just one hit in four innings (sure it was a HR but come on). I swear he could make half of us competent pitchers, at least in the minors. Also, it further goes to show just how pathetic Ryan Franklin really is. ;-7

Huff just hit his 2nd ding dong of the game.. can't believe Huff's ding dongs was left off the title of this thread. I looked at his splits and April and May are by far his worst months. Hopefully this is a sign of things to come

Huff found his power stroke.
I missed out on his HR yesterday, but glad today was a short amount of games so I had his bat in the lineup. guess I'm going to have to get him in there tomorrow again.

I dropped him for Trumbo before yesterday's game. Looks like I missed out on a bunch of HR's. Frustrating. :-[

I think that is the most annoying part of fantasy. Not sitting your starter and having him pitch a no hitter. Not starting a guy and having him give up 7 ER's in 3 innings. But when you're struggling for power and you try to stay on top of your team and micro manage, only to have the player you dropped go off and screw you with 3 HR's and 6 RBI all before he can even clear waivers. I guess I can take solace in the fact no one reaped the benefits.

:-P :-P :-P

Now the question is keep Trumbo or pick up Huff again. :-b

Grand salami for Colby Rasmus..yikes, 6 RBI in this game.

So far I have

6/22 Avg, 4 Runs, 2 HR, 12 RBI, 1 SB

Better counting stats than some full game days for me LOL, and that's with bagels from Brantley and (thus far) Ryan Roberts and Smoak.

If 3 ding dongs go off, does it make a sound?
