Kelly looked erratic out there. He only went 2 innings despite being slated for 3. He had trouble finding the plate, issuing 3 BB and a HBP with only 1 K. As long as Shelby doesn't trip over himself tomorrow, I think the job is his. He has the talent to be an impact fantasy SP right now.

Brett Lawrie (TOR) has an oblique strain and will be out for a few weeks. He will be getting more tests done in Florida

Roy Halladay looked awful today. Not only was the velocity down but he couldn't locate anything and every time he put something in the zone it was hammered. I have always felt he is being over-drafted this year but after watching that game there is no way I'm taking him in any league unless he falls way below his ADP.

He is just trying to fool us all so he can draft himself and win his fantasy league.

I also think last year was then beginning of the end of him. Time will tell.

Lincecum had a bad outing but he was clocked at 92 to 94 which is obviously a great sign. Kind of funny how I was so down on him last year he has a bad year and now I'm drafting him in every league~. While a step back was very predictable last year I think a bounce back to soft ace level is very predictable this year.

Agreed. I've never owned Linc and never really wanted too, until this year.

I think for once he's going where he should be. He's been on my 'will not touch at their adp' lists for a long time. I guess it took a really bad year for all the fools to wake up and realize he is no ace.

With that said, here's to a return to 2011 ;-D

I'm guessing a service time move

Archer isn't one of the 5 best starters on the team. Until he finds some control he isn't going to make that rotation without some injuries.
