Camp looking for a 6 out save. In situations like these it's hard to know for sure whether the guy is the pitcher of choice in the 9th going forward or if it's just a case of a desperate team doing whatever they can to win a game (the Cubs right now). Is Marmol back in the picture now that he's off the DL or is it Camp or Russell or someone else?

Edit, looks like Russell got the call with after Camp got one out. Maybe he's the guy. I grabbed him in my league with limited RP spots where he has some serious potential.

After last week's misery, yesterday was the best pitching day I've had all season, and now Samardzija has followed it up with another solid performance. 7.0 IP, 8 H, 1 BB, 3 ER, 8 K, currently in line for the W if the bullpen doesn't give it away. ;-D

Yeah, he had a 2 run lead and started the eight by allowing a single and an RBI triple. I had given up hope for the win when he was pulled with the tying run on 3rd with nobody out. Dramatic finish.

Samardzija is really becoming a useful fantasy starter.

I was in dead last in ERA and WHIP at the end of April, but I've moved into the top 4 in both in the past month thanks in large part to Sale, Samardzija, McDonald.

Will he be a starter?

As long as they each continue to keep their BB in check, they should continue doing what they've been doing. I have all 3 as well. ;-D ;-D ;-D

Been gone for a few days because of the holiday weekend and some other things. Had kind of a rough weekend, starting with my new acquisition Brandon Morrow getting decimated Friday. !+) Also had some really REALLY ugly bullpen outings from guys like Dolis and Thayer. The good news is my offense has been raking. Tulo has finally arrived. Matt Adams is proving to be a great flier for the time being. Matt Joyce continues to mash. And I will be getting Hunter back today, hopefully Morse later this week, and Kung Fu Panda hopefully not to far after that.

I have Jarrod Parker against the Twinkies today. Hoping for my starters to get back on track.

I don't think there's a specific thread for Juan Carlos Oviedo. who?! you know him better as Leo Nunez, his fake name. well he was suspended by MLB for 8 weeks!
Major League Baseball has announced an eight-week suspension for Marlins reliever Juan Carlos Oviedo.
Oviedo arrived in Miami on Monday after getting a pardon from the U.S. State Department and is expected to begin working out at the Marlins' spring training complex on Tuesday. He hasn't decided whether to appeal the suspension, levied upon him for committing years of age and identity fraud. As the situation stands, Oviedo will be eligible to return to the Marlins' bullpen on July 23.

8 F'n weeks?! holy cow.
sure what he did was wrong and illegal, but 8 weeks?

Jared Weaver also hit the DL, and it looks like Pedroia will be soon.
