sure this topic has been thrown out there 50 times over the last year and a half... but... why the hell do the twins constantly wheel out the rotting corpse of brad radke, kenny the gambler, and rick reed while their staff ace sits on the bench?
milton, radke, mays, reed, rogers, santana.
fantasy wise, tell me which one pitcher you want starting for your squad out of all of them. fine. baseball isn't just #s, but if 9 out of 10 knowledgeable fantasy ball players would say santana, aren't we collectively on to something here? surely gardsie has to notice a 2.24/1.11 era/whip with a slightly over 1 K/IP ratio? right? maybe santana is going out with his daughter or something.
regardless, i'm saving him a slot in the one league where he was a FA before the recent string of starts. one of those old fogies or injury prone veteran stalwarts (radke, mays, milton) has to go down... right? law of averages? .....please? =D
