I own him in about 5 leagues and a few of those have no Bench ...

But no way in hell I am dropping him for Jon Lieber :-/


Hey, at least Lieber will get me the wins. :-b Even if he pitches as badly as Eaton.
I'm back. Sorta.

Do not boo Johnny.

you should have never started Eaton against the Cubs. He wasn't pitching well at all. I would have only played him if he had 2-3 good outings

Sounds like stuff I heard when I had Contreras earlier in the year.

I hate having players that I have to just keep on the bench while I'm waiting around for thier upside to kick in. Space is limited on fantasy teams, and I don't think Eaton is worth one of those valuable slots right now...

i dropped him for lieber as well, young pitchers don't always rebound b/c i believe sometimes guys have early success simply b/c no one has faced 'em or seen much tape of them throwing. That was last month & the hitters have figured eaton out. It was an easy decision really considering he has the best offense & best closer ever behind him on the Yanks.

Fair enough but did you draft Eaton? Hey if you got lucky enough to have grabbed him off of waivers then kick him to the curb without a worry. But if you did draft him what were you thinking? This guy was a late round draft pick that was all about upside.

He has the stuff but was hurt in '02, hurt at the beginning of '03 and really didn't start to string together good starts until later in the year. So if you're willing to gamble on this guy initially (like I was) than I think he's worth riding for a little while. He started slow last year and has only played in 7 games this year. Fantasy space is limited, I agree, but unless you have no bench positions I don't think it's wasting a slot taking a chance on Eaton. Just my $.02.

Maine has a good swing for a pitcher but on anything that moves, he has no chance. And if it's a fastball, it has to be up in the zone. Basically, the pitcher has to hit his bat. - Mike Pelfrey

give eaton one more start before dropping him, might just be a rough patch....realize why he is still on your roster (good start of the season). if you drop him he will be picked up in 10-12 team leagues i think, but i would certainly grab AJ and stash him on the DL if he is actually available...
