A point against using position scarcity in your draft. I might be starting Napoli at 1B/UT and Ianetta at C because this FA catcher is a better option than my 1Bman.

It doesn't really change who I would have drafted though. 1Bman weren't available where I wanted to pick them and I was taking Napoli anyway.

Any 1B prospects to consider stashing in a deepish (14tm, start 13 hitters) league? No there isn't anything on the WW unless you want Garrett Jones or Kotchman.

I wonder how long it will take for the Nationals to get some respect. One of the five best rotations in the league, easily, and their prime competitor just demoted their ace? Nope, they won't be competing for a playoff spot come August ;-7

So why'd they trot Darvish for the 9th? Didn't they just pay $Obscene for this guy?


CGSO. You'll see teams try to get their starter a CGSO every once in awhile. it's a bummer that I benched him but this is very encouraging. This is actually why I don't try to get cute with sitting/starting and use the start em if you got em approach.


I'm shocked they tried to get Yu the CGSHO. With the troubles he had been having with control, and with the quality guys Texas has in the pen, it made sense to me to get him out with 7 scoreless innings recorded against the Yankees and a big boost in confidence. The good a CGSHO would have done to his confidence/psyche is far outweighed by the bad a meltdown in the 8th or 9th would have caused, IMO. And one big inning is always around the corner for the Yanks.

Hal·la·day, n. 1. every fifth day in Philadelphia. 2. a day of rest for the bullpen. 3. innings eater. 4. doc. 5. ace.

What, you don't like James Loney? :-D

I have Gaby Sanchez available, but he's been as bad as Loney anyway.

Ugh, the guy I'm playing this week put me in a deep pitching hole throwing out Price/Gio/Worley tonight. And he'll get another start out of both Gio and Price this week.

This is coming off a week where I had to face double starts from Luebke/Strasburg, so it's been a bit frustrating.
