This was his 4th start at Coors, so the majority of his stats are at
Coors. I picked him up after his last win and started him today.
You can have Foppert(dropped him today and picked up Day) I
think Chacon is the real deal.
Hootie, you may be right about Day, but I am not sold on Foppert.
His stats so far suck and I think he will be sent to the minors.
I am not sure I need a 6th starter with Wood, Hudson, Buehrle,
Chacon, Eaton and Day. Chances are, I will drop Day if a good
batter hit's the waiver wire.
The problem with Day is that once El Duque and Armas are off the DL, there won't be a spot in the starting rotation for him. They would either have to put him or Livan Hernandez into the bullpen, and Livan is basically only useful for pitching lots of innings, meaning it would be idiotic to put him in the bullpen. That means that Day will be stuck in a role similar to that of Santana in Minnesota, although they may try to use him as a closer.

His stats arent good, but hes had 1 whole start. He could go back to minors, hes only 22. Fopperts ceiling is huge, no matter how much he does or doesnt struggle now. Imo, his celing is higher, or at least on par with Myers and Peavy.
