I'm pissed I ran out of pickups last week when Longo and Panda went on my DL, I wanted to pick up Middlebrooks to replace them asap and have missed 3 homeruns and a steal. :-t

All my holds guys are turning into closers and it's kind of starting to irritate me. I know 99 percent of owners right now would love to have my problem, but my closers aren't the ones getting injured! :-D

I don't know if it's necessarily crazy, but I wouldn't do it.

Middlebrooks = beast.

I have Morse, Santos, Sandoval and Werth now injured on my team. If the fantasy baseball gods would please have mercy on the rest of my time, I would be forever grateful. O:-)

Well, he did have 91 pitches through those 5 IP, and his usually impeccable control was not there. My guess is they figured, up 7-0, it made sense to limit Lynn's workload and let the bullpen finish it up. Obviously it appears to have backfired, but I can at least see the reasoning behind the move.
