139 PA's

He does have nice MiLB numbers but your fascination of AAAA players in the past leads me to be skeptical. I could swap Frazier for him in one league (14tm - 13 hitters) but I'm not grabbing him in a standard 12 tm league.

I haven't even had time to read lately. I run 2 dart leagues in the South Shore area of MA, and right now they are overlapping. Playoffs in the summer league and all the setup work with the fall league means I'm barely getting any sleep much less having time for fun stuff, plus taking care of a sick father in law.

Running out Lilly and Danks today.

Ogando and Beachy. :-)

Gonna pay attention to Alvarez and Miley though as they've got the potential to be on mixed team rosters in the near future.

Ouch Quentin. Looks like a likely separated shoulder making a diving catch. Left in the 1st. Have him in two leagues. Damn.

why does francona feel the need to pull his regulars out of the lineup for every freakin little niggling injury?
he is the most annoying manager ever from a fantasy perspective.

That sucks for a 24 tm league that is in the playoffs right now. Luckily Blanks is having an unexpected breakout and Thome is hot so I have someone to put in.

Jennings with 3 SB's and it's only the 5th. :-D

Garzax2 with a nice game. 7IP, 0ER, 1W. The W is important because we have 5 or 6 teams within 2-3 wins of each other at the top.

You wouldn't know it from his ERA and WHIP, but Matt Garza is actually having a career year.
9.2 K/9, 47% GB, 3.1 BB/9. Those are ace numbers.
I'm curious to see whether he can do it again in 2012.
