I don't own him, but why not? The white sox are not an offensive juggernaut, and the boston is clicking on offensive.

And it's not like Washington is hitting. they are pitching lights out though so a win might be too much to ask for.

Right now I'm sitting Danks and Arrieta (vs Oak but at BAL) tomorrow. I want to start Arrieta but I'm way ahead in innings so I need to slow down a little.

Could he possibly be pitching to keep his rotation spot. So much speculation of him moving back to the pen.

Aviles is pretty valuable cause of the 3 position stuff, and my league is really deep. Im extremely deep at SP, so I have room to move 1, I tried to move Minor, but the dude wouldnt budge. I ended up going with Beachy for Kendrick but I got a 6th that can become a 3 if Beachy finishes top 15 in ESPN PR for SP's.

still have Verlander, Strasburg, Luebke, Anibal, Minor, Wainwright, Harrison and Parker, so losing Beachy isnt a big hit


I agree on Aviles. In one league I had hoped to nab Aviles for a buck, but ended up ponying up 8 dollars for him and so far, I'm very satisfied with the investment. MI isn't incredibly deep this year, and a guy who is leading off for a good lineup with a bit of speed and pop is always a commodity. Of course, when Ellsbury comes back, he might move down the order, but I'd hardly call him worthless in any case.

Yeah, I don't understand the aviles is worthlees comment at all. He has always been able to hit, but now has a full-time gig at the top of the boston line up and producing well. Very curious statement???



What are you talking about? The guy is awful...he hits for average every other year (wow!!!), has minimal power even for a Short Stop, ...and doesn't run enough?

I guess I'm missing everything...but Aviles sucks. He's not logged in his entire career a full season of at bats and he played on the Royals..whether you chalk that up to injury or inconsistency it's not good.

I guess I don't see it
Why don't they just get a house that's already painted?
