Postby JohnnyBenchBest Ever » Tue Apr 25, 2006 9:28 am

Any chance Lieber pulls out of this or is he finished?

In my opinion, he is indeed junk.

Ok, exactly how "junk" is he? Right now my rotation is:

Sheets
Maddux
Odalis
Lieber
Bannister/Madson

(9-team NL-only)

He's not bad enough to bench in that format I don't think.

NL only yea, he could be useful as a permanent roster fixture, but in 12 team mixed leagues he is what he always has been, a free agent pitcher worth spot starting occasionally.

Ehh. Lieber has always been streaky. He will heat up at some point imo and be a useful fantasy 5th or 6th starter for a motnth or two this season. But that will likely be the extent of it. I thought he was going to be better this year myself. But the consistency just is not there.

Sounds like the consensus is that he's junk and not worth a spot on FB rosters.

When he heats up, he's got a 3.50 ERA and gets 5 Ks/game

you decide
