You couldn't pay me to start him even in H2H. I'll gladly take him pitching a gem on the bench over obliterating my ratios again.

It's crazy. LAA might not be hitting on all that well lately, but they are still dangerous. But most importantly, Parker has done absolutely nothing so far.

With that being said, I did start Staily last night and he pitched much better than his line indicates. He made good pitches on the 5th inning and could have easily ended the inning without giving up a run. He did make a mistake to Trumbo and paid for it.

Great. Trevor Plouffe is now starting for me against Verlander. Wait a second I can instead get Ruben Tejada in the lineup. That's awesome. :-t

They should just remove all the bones in Panda's body. I have no doubt he'd be a stud if he lost about 50 pounds or so, and that's the best way to do it and insure he avoids injury

:*)

Needless to say I didn't draft him once this year, I got tired of monitoring his daily statuses and DNP's and then oops he's back with 2 bombs on my bench. :-t

I've loved having Sandoval this season. He's only missed one game and from what I remember it was just a day off. I don't mind plugging in Keppinger for a day here and there. I just hope he avoids long-term injuries, and at least we can rule out the hamates.

It's only been a month and this is the 2nd that he has been dinged up. But I also like having him in my lineup after surviving last year with Chipper Jones, ARod and Marco Scutaro at 3B.

Benching as well. He's gotta show me something in his next couple starts or else he will be going back to WW


I traded Morrow for Lincecum because I thought I could trust Lincecum more often... that says a lot! I was looking at Morrow's matchups and it was just so hard to find a time I would be comfortable using him.


I actually did the same in one league, Morrow for Lincecum.

Were you able to get him from the WW?

He's so frustrating and I have own him almost every year since the moved to Toronto. I should know better. Totally overvalued him this season. I have only started him twice this season and he will be on my bench tonight as well.


No, unfortunately I drafted him expecting big things.

Same, but at least I got Harvey to balance him out on the team I nabbed Morrow. Drafted them back to back in case 1 didn't work out.
