He's a guy I've just never ever thought was a good pitcher. Even in 2010 I wasn't a believer. Have never owned him, never will. I truly believe this is a ride that's going to end abruptly and harshly. Highest Strand Rate and K/9 and HR/9 of his career through six weeks. I don't buy it. If I owned him, I'd ride it as long as I could if I couldn't dump him, but I'd be ready for the wheels to fall off soon.


Buchholz has always had great stuff. The difference this year is his command of his fastball has been vastly improved. He is getting a lot of looking called strikes.

His FIP last night was actually the lowest he has had all year, he just got bit by the BABIP bug to a tune of .438.

One guy in my league decided to draft both Lincecum and Halladay. Probably thought he had a decent chance one of them would bounce back..

Hard to believe that Lincecum used to be absolutely untouchable just a few seasons ago...

On another note though good to see Chase Utley healthy and, well just being the Chase Utley that we all remember.

Jeez after that surgery Crawford might have the worst arm in baseball. Gregorius was just rounding 3rd when Crawford fielded a ball incredibly shallow in left field and he scored easily.

I love Choo. And Cargo. Those guys are carrying me. The power boost from Choo I expected, the power explosion I did not.

Effing McCarthy. He's turning into one of those guys who throws too many strikes.

Is Marcell Ozuna awesome or just off to a quick start and soon to fade fast?
