My friend reached for him in a league I'm in and I questioned him for it.....that came back to bite me.

Even I avoided him where he was being drafted due to the questions surrounding how he would bounce back from that injury. Don't have him in any leagues but I sure am enjoying watching as a Giants fan.

So I'm up a SB in my main league, and Pujols steals me a base. Thinking I'll be up by two now, I refresh the matchup to find the score tied. TIED? Someone just stole him two bases? That can't be he's only got Weiters playing right now, who has what 2 career SBs?

i heart doug fister

I picked up Thome last week when I needed a healthy bat, about two days later he goes on the DL, so I pick up Berkman. Berkman never got an AB for me and quickly followed Thome on the DL. Frustrated I decided to give some new blood a shot and picked up that Ruggiano kid. Apparently in doing so I caused his back to spasm.

All in all I burned through 3 of my allotted 4 pickups on my DH slot this week and netted +0 ABs

Anyone know if Haren was scratched? MLB Daily Lineups has T. Cunningham starting, but I don't see any other sources saying he was scratched....

Haren was scratched with back tightness. Same reason he went on the DL.
