I can't believe I'm actually asking this, but does anyone think this guy is worth a flyer? He's been looking good so far, and I have an open spot since I missed out on the Rich Harden sweepstakes.

No. He was a Pirate last year, and I remember he was pretty streaky. Would be doing OK to well a couple starts, then suddenly explode and return to his normal mediocre self. Maybe in real deep NL-only leagues, but I think his ERA at the end of the season will be closer to 6 than 3.

he's a good, aggresive pitcher, but I think it's a little too early to consider picking this guy up. He would give you a lot of k's but ole jimy doesn't like to leave him in there for too long. 6 innings max. Wait a few weeks and see if he continues to pitch so dominantly at minute maid. The ex-quaterback has been a pleasant surprise though for the astros, though.

I actually picked him up 3 starts ago for Politte, because I needed a spot start and took a gamble, and he has delivered. I have him on a short leash, and one bad start and he may be gone. I actually dropped Kinney today, for Harden, and kept Villone. I'm a gambling man trying to make the playoffs, so I had little to loose. ;-7
