If you want people to WHIR you'll have to give more details :-b
I would just Le Bench him for now. Overall for 2011, his peripherals are pretty similar to 2010.

its a weekly league, and we have no bench. Ive got his suck splattered all over my fantasy log.
You want more details? I was in first, but needed a bump in k's so i overpaid for his suck. i didn't even get the first part of the year when he was "good", and "Breaking out", nope just the suck. Now im in 6th due to the nosedive in my pitching ratios, and its all his fault.

I've got five weeks to make it up, and he has to go.
whir!

Beachy and Cecil, take a seat Ogando.

Wverves, as far as the Garcia problem:

In the eight starts since, he's 1-4 with a 5.01 ERA after reaching the All-Star break with a 9-3 record and a 3.22 ERA.


I wouldn't continue trying to swim upstream with this guy...

yesterday the Cubs put Carlos Pena on waivers. he was claimed by the Yankees. shortly after that I read that the Cubs said Pena was going nowhere. so what was the point of putting him on waivers if the team had no interest of him going anywhere?
Carrie Muskat of MLB.com writes that Cubs first baseman Carlos Pena is "not going anywhere."
Pena was claimed off waivers by the Yankees on Wednesday, but the Cubs refused to trade the slugger at last month's non-waiver deadline and don't seem inclined to part with him here in August. The reasons: half of Pena's $10 million salary for this season has been deferred to 2012, and the Cubs are still hoping to re-sign him as a free agent this winter. Pena, 33, has 23 homers and 67 RBI through 124 games with Chicago.
