Dropping Fatolo and seeing the guy ahead of me in ERA and WHIP burn waiver priority on him have to been the happiest moments of my fantasy baseball year so far.

Don't forget guys....It's a LONG season...

I have noticed that a lot of posters in here are VERY impatient...Fantasy baseball requires patience and an ability to know who the stars of the game are...Bartolo, although not a major star has been a very nice contributor for many years.

He's NOT old and I believe he is just going through a mechanical breakdown right now...HE WILL be back, but all of you who dropped him will be KICKING yourselves bu July 1st.

I guarantee it!!!!

Crip, I wish I were alot more impatient...my patience with Fatolo has earned me 2nd worst ERA and WHIP in my league.

You won't mind if I bump this on July 1st, will you Crip?

repeat after me...

regression to the mean.

Lets see - if I created my pitching staff from players that have started slow this yr Id be looking at:

Prior
Pedro
Halladay
Mussina
Zito

I could go on if you need more examples.

he'll be back, but if you drafted him to be your ace you expected too much. But as a #2 or #3 he'll be fine.
