This guy is killing me. I have weekly roster changes and am thinking about benching him this week. Any news on whether he will do more than pinch hit?

I think I am going to pick up Valentin for this week. I have a very thin bench, everyone starts except: Baez, Borowski, and Teixeira.

My other closers are Herges, Valverde, and Rhodes.

I can't drop Tex, and can't decide between Baez and Borowksi, leaning towards Borowski because Baez has greater job security, advice?

OR, I could drop Nen and DL Reyes to make room. I have Herges, so I am real hesitent to drop Nen. Any chance he returns??

I wouldn't hesitate to drop Nen. It's looking pretty bad right now and there's no sign of his returning. If he's having this much difficulty returning it's also no sure bet that he will pitch well when he does return. :-/

Bench Furcal. Cox said he's not going on the DL but he doesn't know when he's going to start again. Pick up Jack Wilson. No one is talking about him but he's hot so far this year.

Would now be a good time to buy Furcal low?

Any ideas what might be required to pick him up?

I think now would be a good time to buy low. As a Furcal owner I'm pissed and can't stand it anymore. I really don't know what it will take to get him though, depends upon the needs of the team.

I wish Wilson was available, the only viable option is Valentin, which isn't that bad. The problem is who to drop.

the thing that bothers me with furcal is, he banged it up....the xrays came up NEGATIVE. its not broken, its "sprained" .. after 2 weeks, a sprained ring finger shouldn't keep an athlete out of a baseball game.

and an estimate of how long it will take to get him back in the line up shouldn't be impossible either.

I wouldn't hesitate dropping Nen either. Rotoworld this morning reported that the Giants sent him home. :~(

As for Furcal, sometimes sprains linger longer than breaks. Have you ever jammed a finger? It hurts big time. And as a previous post mentioned, it's his throwing that is affected, not hitting. :,-(

Furcal is burning me too. Luckliy I got Jack Wilson in my one league. Got outbid in the other, but got C. Guillen to ease the pain for another week.
