When does Martin Prado become droppable in standard leagues? I've been patient cause I thought he was just being BABIP'd to death, with his other indicators looking pretty in-line with expectations (and maybe he still is), but we're fast approaching the season's mid-point with few, if any, signs of a turnaround. He going to stack .100 pts onto his OPS any time soon, or have we reached the but bait time?

Fun fact. since I traded Pujols for Verlander/Carlos Gomez, Verlander has posted a beautiful 5.91/1.60 pitching line for me in about 50 innings .. Carlos Gomez has out hit Pujols over that time frame, same HRs, but better counting stats, and 6 SB's to boot, but i cant get over Verlander ...
Maybe its me ... In my three leagues i also own Hamels and Grienke on a few teams. They suck. Tack on the pitcher formerly known as Matt Cain, and sad sack Strausberg, and its just not been my year for pitching.
except for Shelby Miller, and my genius for finding reliable scrubs ... of course..
Toss Medlen in there too.
Outside of Shelby Miller, my best pitcher is Jeff Locke.
the night Tulowitzki was injured and speculation was josh Rutledge would come up because he was killing it in the minors, all these "experts" on twitter were saying Rutledge, Rutledge, Rutledge, you want Rutledge! he has only 1 hit since then, brutal.
Josh Rutledge went 0-for-4 on Wednesday, dropping his average to .045 in the five games since being recalled on June 14. The shortstop was hitting well at Triple-A Colorado Springs before the promotion but his bat has gone ice cold with the big club, as he's just 1-for-22 in the five games. He's also struck out seven times while walking only once. The Rockies don't have many better options while Troy Tulowitzki is out, though, so Rutledge will likely continue to see playing time unless his struggles persist.
