that guy is whack. i'd claim Beckett (one start against Mon) and Maddux (possibly two starts) if you have guys you can drop.
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Somebody call his house, I think he fell asleep on his keyboard.

Seriously, Maddux is a no-brainer to me. But Beckett is like a coin flip right now, you don't know if you're getting heads or tails. I think Florida is tired from that horrendous makeup schedule they're enduring.

Agreed. It got me thinking. Perhaps he'd drop more, but they are on the can't-cut list. Anyone know how to access it? I can't find it on Yahoo's main page. (Edit: Scratch that... we don't have a can't cut list.)

I'm also thinking of picking up people like Brazoban to help my ERA and WHIP. I won't win in Ks and wins if he does this...
I'm back. Sorta.

No problem at all. ;-D

I'm just here to help. :-)

Holy cow! That's twice I used that line today. I'm on a roll. :-b

Any thoughts on picking up Brazoban (and similar dominant MRs) as a counter to ERA and whip?

the can't-cut list should be on the main page of your league on the bottom right. :-)

(where it has the standings, the transactions.. etc etc)

Boy is this guy lucky--Davis and Benson pitch gems. While Myers did not, his ERA is not ballooning.

I hope it does today. He has Millwood, Dave Bush, Paul Wilson, Radke and Joe Kennedy all starting today.

Tomorrow he has Corey Lidle, Lackey, Rodrigo Lopez, Peavey and Carlos Silva going. Can I get some blowouts please?
