Yeah, he's been on my watch list since Eaton's injury. I'm debating whether I should grab him at the expense of Span or Hicks.

I grabbed him after dumping half my team on the DL. Unfortunately missed yesterday's production, but as an Eaton owner, I'm happy to have him plugging in that hole hopefully quite nicely.

Stoked to see what Hyun-Jin can do. I have him on every team.

Actually, most of my teams are very heavily Asian influenced. My dynasty team has Choo, Aoki, Fujikawa, Ryu, Kuroda. I'll have to work on harnessing my inner Qi.

Depends on the league format but his upside is probably Span and he isn't going to play full time all season so I definitely would not drop Span for him. Hicks is more of an upside play so that might make some sense.

HADOUKEN! Ryu should be fun to watch.

Ricky Nolasco did pretty darn good yesterday against a good team. Two mistake pitches (Actually one of them looked to be sinking away to the lower outside corner) Harper is just a man amongst children twice his age.

Today I have Dickey x1 and Estrada x2.

Upset pick of the day: Houston over TEX 10-0 ;-7

Nice! Is there any way to make it look like he ate Tommy Lasorda?
