wow 8-o

Pretty quick to respond Jackal..
Makes sense though ...
I would imagine that after a full year of the abuse, that your eyes are trained to spot the name Loiaza in a thread pretty quickly. I just hope the nightmares have ended for ya ... ;-)

Curious though ...
do you think you will be drafting him the 13th round this season?

Dang 8-o ! That guy got a thread of his own again? 8-o What did I miss? 8-o Did the MLB expand to 100 teams 8-o ?

I'd pay another team $1 to take him. Let him destroy the other team's numbers instead of yours.

Yes, the majority is sometimes right. A lot of the time. But when virtually everybody thinks a certain way, there is a huge opportunity to take a risk by going against the majority especially considering the guy led the league in W's and K's.

I'd be happy if every player who had a yeah like Loaiza was expected to fail in the same manner.

I am pretty sure nobody gave two cents about where you drafted him or even if you drafted him ... It probably had alot more to do with the infamous "Loiaza Watch."

LOL

Well that didn't seem to be the big deal before the season. I'm pretty sure the scutiny was due to expecting him to be good again and actually saying that. Only once the season started I put in the Loaiza Lookout.

The Loaiza Lookout was great. I agree with LB Jackal, sometimes when EVERYBODY says "stay away," you can get a great "value pick" (cheers Corn Bread) out of a guy. I didn't draft Loaiza last year, and I won't be doing so this year.
98% of Americans have a favorable opinion of puppies and rainbows.
How do you spell "biased?"

Did someone mention Loaiza?

I have him ranked right after Juan Guzman.

There are other, safer risks you can take on SPs in the AL. Don't let a couple of quality October appearances trick you.
