I way over traded for this guy back in June. I had way too much SB's and SV's, and nobody would trade for Coco, so gave up Bourn and coco for Garcia. Im still 2nd in SB's and saves, by a lot but Garcia just destroyed my ratios ... Well him and Crapuano ...

Freese.

Or this. Frazier is a better value at 2B, but in deep leagues, you could do worse.

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.
I hope pops is okay .... I haven't played Darts in forever, and now i want to join a league. Watch out world. Im making a comeback!!!!!!

He's a sleeping giant who has been awoken. I like him.

PS - has there ever been a less interesting match up in the history of baseball than tomorrow's scheduled Dan Runzler vs. Henry Sosa?

After years of watching Brett Tomkos starts, im sure i could find a few .. :-o

So does this mean that Aussie got one right when it comes to Duda, or are we going to need Sluggers to make it official?

With Mets you need to always temper expectations, and also keep in mind that if he breaks a finger nail there's always the possibility of it being career ending with the Mets' training staff. He has a pretty nice ML track record, though, and if they continue to let him play, I think he'll do well, though with him moving to RF next season when he's a natural 1B, we'll see if that affects him at all.

Any time you can choose Padre batter vs. any non-Padre batter, you go with the non-Padre batter, now that Adrian is mashing in Boston. 1/2 with 2 more RBI today. He's gonna help a lot of H2H playoff runs, IMO.

i just heard a bizarre stat and im trying to confirm it. The Padres lead the NL in runs scored since the allstar break? anybody care to look it up for me?

oh and ... Blanks 2/4 tonight, 2 runs, 2 rbis, and a shot ..
The Marlins aren't very good.

Sweet!
I hope they keep it up. Knocking the Giants out of the post season is going to be awesome ... ;-D
