Wish I would've known this before I picked him for this spot start.



Anyone think Reynolds in NY a good move?

Yesterday's 21.2 IP of 1.25 ERA, 0.92 WHIP baseball including 19 K, 3 QS, 2 W, and 2 SV has me with a massive lead in my Round 1 Playoff match up. Still, with 10 days left to play, anything can happen. ;-D

I assume I'm not the only one who can't open any threads on the football cafe? Been that way for a few days now.

In the average 12 team league there are usually at least a few SPs of similar skillsets to Miley on the wire - guys like Arroyo, Chacin, McCarthy, Kennedy, Hellickson who have might have a good to average WHIP, but posses limited K ability, and fluctuating ERA.

Gray can be much better than that with his ability to strike guys out, and he pitches in the best park in baseball.
If he gets sent back to the pen at any point the worst that happens is pick one of them up.

Unless of course there is a penalty for adds/drops or demotions like in the league I mentioned.

My guess is that you aren't aware of how good Miley has been over the past 45 days or so.


He's been good but it has still come with limited K's...and the point isn't who has been better in the last 45 days, it's who's going to be better in the next 45 days...I'd probably take the upside in Gray as well considering you already have a good core group of starters so you can afford to gamble just a bit.



I guess I was just saying that Miley is rolling right now. Out of curiosity, what about Miley vs. haren vs. grey?
