Felix with a career 4.22 ERA at the Cell and the White Sox are red hot. Felix hasn't been sharp either of late. I'm leaning toward not starting him. Going against Peavy who's been good this season doesn't help since stealing a win isn't likely even if his stats aren't great.

Once Jackson returns I don't see where Berry will get playing time in that outfield. They will have Dirks, Boesch, and Kelly as well in the OF to go along with Jackson.

Jackson likely won't be ready through the weekend.

Also here is some news on Dirks:

Tigers outfielder Andy Dirks was unable to return to the starting lineup Thursday against the Red Sox, missing a second straight game with an Achillies injury. After the game the Detroit News reported that Dirks was feeling worse on Thursday than he had on Wednesday, which does not make his status moving forward look good. “The thing that scares me about his (injury) is it was worse today than it was yesterday,” manager Jim Leyland said.

I'm benching Capuano in my mixed league and starting him in my AL Only. He's been incredible this season, but it's no reason to tempt fate. Colorado has been scoring in bunches lately, and even without Tulo I'm avoiding Coors Field starts.

interesting STL lineup

Furcal
BELTRAN CF
Holliday
CRAIG RF
Freese
Molina
ADAMS 1B
Greene

intersting because Beltran is playing CF for first time in almost 2 yrs
Adams is playing against a Lefty
Craig is in the OF where he is likely to get hurt again.

STL chosing offensive potential, while risking 2 of its best hitters who always are hurt, out of position

Isn't Dirks getting DL'ed? Not gonna put up to many stats there.
