Its the beggining of week 2. Remmember when he was absolutely terrible last year, and ended the year as an above average pitcher? Same story...

Sean Tracey has my apologies, we all know Ozzie Guillen is an idiot. I'm rooting for you!

It would be rough pitching slowpitch in Chicago in 40 degree weather w/ a 20 mph wind (forget about whiffle ball...). I don't think we have to totally write him off.

I can't say that I was too disappointed to see my H2H opponent had stuck him in though!!

old+cold= ouch!!

Wishing I hadn't started him today too - live and learn that he's at the point where you have to spot start him only in favorable matchups.

yup, just like we discussed in another similar thread yesterday, Maddux and A-Rod are both horrible. As is Soriano. Come to think of it Manny isn't really good either. Wow, we certainly did get some bad advice on draft day didn't we? :-B

Last year Maddux had an ER+ of 105, that's slightly above average. Throw in only 124 Ks to go with a good 16 wins, and you have yourself an average fantasy player.

Maddux will be average this year, no better, no worse.

Hes been average for a few years now, if you expected cy young numbers when you drafted him, you thought much too highly of him. He'll snap out of this, or at least i hope he does, for the cubs sake.

I think he'll win 13-15 games around a 4 ERA and 120 Ks
