Gave up one homer...he gives up quite a few of those, but seems to handle guys well other times.

I wouldn't be too concerned about Danny losing opps unless he's traded, which is still a strong possibility.

Unless he is traded...no worries about him losing opps... :-)

Can't remember the guys name that leads all of MLB in saves.... :-?

Thats his 4th blown save, Graves just isn't a very good pitcher. He's good enough to get the job done, and he's getting loads of chances for saves so he's still valuable in fantasy. I also find it unlikely anyone will want to trade for him unless they are looking for a closer since he would be nothing special in a setup role and has proven he's not a good starter.

graves always looks bad. he's enfuriating to watch. i don't own him, but i'm a reds fan. he makes me sick every time he enters the game. i wish riedling were our closer (or that we hadn't traded reitsma, and he were our closer)...

however, i agree that, as long as he's in cincinnati, he will close. management needs to inflate his value beyond reason (job well done, insofar as that is concerned), and ship him off for three starters whose names we've never heard (and might never hear again). such is the way of my redlegs. :-/

yeah, yes...

Umm...you're talking about Danny Graves of the Reds, right? Or are you basing your entire perception on his save total?

Also on the fact that he's managed to maintain a 3.00 something ERA since the start of the season in a hitters park.

I guess I shouldn't be surprised, since this board has even less respect for the hitter who got yesterday's homer off Graves - Jeromy Burnitz. Both are very good players, a fact that has escaped the view of many on this board, who for some reason mistakenly think Graves should be judged on his fluky starting numbers from last year and Burnitz should be treated like he's still playing most of his games at Shea and Dodger Stadium.
