How is Garza washed up?
The Cubs are being VERY careful with him, that's a good thing.

Well that's exactly how I feel. I just wanted to make sure I wasn't the only one. Thank you Aussie dodger

Should have probably been dropped a week or two ago. He's just not that good. Might be able to turn it around some point, ala Gordon, but I'd be pretty shocked if it was this year.

Although I'm skeptical of Garza but he could be just as effective as before. The big positive is that it isn't an arm injury that he's dealing with. I have also had him pegged as a breakout for what seems like forever. I just can't quit Garza...

In a mixed redraft that size, hes okay to bounce between waiver and owned

Still worth holdng in keeper/dynasty, just traded kevin gregg for him in a keep format (more saves will come along)

You know he hasn't pitched for the Twins for 7 years, right? It's OK to let go.

I haven't given up on anyone yet. April weather was just awful.

Guys I am concerned about are:

Brandon Morrow - Seems to be turning around a bit, but still makes me nervous.

Ian Kennedy - Starting to wish I would have sold high on him. Still think he will be a solid starter.

Norichika Aoki - He seems to be turning it around. I think April's weather effected him. I've been platooning him with Michael Brantley and that seems to be working for me right now. I think he will be fine.

I haven't given up on anyone, but I did sell Matt Kemp at maximum value with a straight up trade for Buster Posey.

I got rid of Melky when Arenado got called up and got Arenado and Markakis for Melky. I'm not ready to dump anyone else just yet but I'm starting to have concerns with Weeks, LaRoche, Bautista and Gallardo. Player I have that are just annoying me right now are Agon, Hamels, Strasburg and Samardzija.

Bautista? Jose Bautista?

He's been hot recently, raised his batting average into the .230's and he does have 7 HRs despite missing a week due to an ankle injury.

Agon's pretty good, just nagging injuries. I'd be worried about Stras too though.

My team is just a team that isn't consistent and I drop further and further down the standings. Yes I know it's early. Bautista is just someone I'm expecting more from in RBI. His HR count is good so far but the RBI aren't really his fault since the team doesn't get on base. I'm not terribly worried about Strasburg as long as the Nats can stop their errors and also score some runs. Same with the Cubs but then again it is the Cubs lol. I knew the Phillies would be the way they are but Hamels hasn't been striking out as much as he should be and is walking a lot of batters.
