5/16 Cheering, Venting, & Get Off the Tracks...

Postby bigh0rt » Thu May 16, 2013 8:38 am

... when the train's comin' through. Choooo Chooooooooooo!!! Choo with his 8th and 9th HR of the season yesterday, as he now possesses the #1 overall OF ranking in some leagues (such as my points league). People thought Choo could possess great value in Cinci this season, but thus far owners have gotten far more than they bargained for from the Korean (Note: NOT Japanese).

.: Poll :.
I can only choose one of these starts... Still no Michael Kors in Yahoo!/ESPN/CBS Database... WHIR?

DET: Verlander (4-3, 1.93 ERA)
TEX: Darvish (6-1, 2.73 ERA)

CIN: Latos (4-0, 3.04 ERA)
MIA: Fernandez (2-2, 3.65 ERA)

CHW: Quintana (2-1, 3.72 ERA)

Liriano is a pretty big favorite today against Milwaukee. Probably the most volatile option in the poll, as well. High risk, high reward. I actually think I may roll the dice on him, as brutal of a decision as it could end up being... :-o

Not touching Liriano. It is one thing to pitch well against the Mets. I'm going to see what he can do against a real offense before putting him in my lineup. I would roll with Cashner.

I have Darvish/Cain/Strasburg going in a variety of leagues and my vote went to Cashner.

Liriano firmly planted on my bench, so he will probably K 10+ today and go 7 strong with a W. Feel free to get him in your lineups.
