Would you drop Delmon Young for him? I'm afraid Detwiler's days are numbered.

If you're worried, wait until his next start. If he's not picked up by now, he will still be there in a few days. The guy has been just about lights out. Coupled with his very high draft pick, I really doubt that the Nats are going to simply relegate Detwiler to the minors, when he flat out earned the starting job over John Lannan, the highest paid player ever sent down to the minors instead of being put on the ML roster.

I actually dropped Young in my 12 team Yahoo league, well over a week ago. He's still there. Then again, so is Detwiler. One more good start, and I'm going to grab him.

Jarrod Parker is also going to be making his first start this week. He's pretty intriguing. Any thoughts on Parker?

I would read the "rookie" pitcher thread in the Leftovers forum ;-D
