Furcal killin' me in weekly H2H

Postby Never Iffey » Sun May 09, 2004 1:41 am

What is up with Furcal? Should I drop someone and pick up C. Guillen to fill in for him this week (no daily lineup changes)?

i feel your pain Iffey, he was killin me all weeek but im in daily changes so on thurs night I picked up M Bellhorn & threw him in @ 2nd & moved Womack over to short, Bellhorn has been awesome :-D but not enough to keep a job w me

Furcal has a jammed pinky & will not start tomorrow, braves are off mons & he is hopeful to start on tues. They were thinking about putting him on the DL but he showed improvement today so they have ruled that out for now.

Furcal has been tricky all year, this is twice already he has delayed his return. Cox said on sunday he would play tuesday & as u know he has not played all week. SO now they say tuesday again but they cant be trusted.

picking up Guillen would be a great move but i dont know whou can drop , i guess if u want to take the chance id drop Padilla but i don think its worht it. I would take the gamble on Furcal playing on tuesday if not wed at the latest

Whatever you do, I'd probably drop K-Rod, unless your league counts holds.

K-rod's a stud, but if your league doesn't count holds than I agree w/Pedantic.

So, are you guys suggesting I drop K-Rod and start C. Guillen this week in place of Furcal?

Actually, I probably wouldn't bother. I believe Furcal pinch-hit today, and I've read also that he's expected back Tuesday. You've already lost Sunday's stats at SS, so you'd only miss out on one more day's worth. I'd probably just gut it out and hope he's back Tuesday.

I got the same problem, but will be benching him for someone who plays, but I would not drop him.
BRILLIANT!
