i dont mean to boast, but I told you guys not to start wade at turner. its just a rule this season, you dont f*** with the braves offense. good luck to all of you guys that thought he could tame this offense.

Wade you worthless piece of garbage!!!! Worthless mound of human flesh!!!!:-P

OK, I got that out of my system!! I had to start him, I am in a H2H points league and my opponent has five more starts this week and I only have three. I think it's time to drop Wade and pick someone esle. Here are the best options:

Jeff Suppan
Kip Wells
John Garland
Darren Oliver
Jesse Foppert
Teddy Lilly

Here's my staff:
SP -R. Johnson
SP -W. Miller
SP -J. Schmidt
SP -K. Millwood
SP -B. Myers
SP- J. Moyer
SP -R. Harden
SP/RP -M. Batista
RP -B. Wagner
RP -O. Dotel
RP -D. Baez

I feel your pain. I just picked up Jesse Foppert. Damn 45 era after one inning, did not need that.

I've started very few pitchers against the Braves this year. I've missed a couple of good starts, but I've also missed beatings like the one Wade got. :-)

i dont think i would drop wade. hes got too much potential man. just monitor who hes hurling against and pick your spots. he will definitely turn in some good performances considering his second half stats.

holy shit indeed. It was H2H tho and I too needed to start all of my pitchers because my opponent has more quality (Halladay, Wood, Unit...), so all I can do is beat him with quantity...

LCBOY, since when did Darren Oliver become a 'best option'? Yeeuch.

Wade has now helped me get a 6.64 ERA in my H2H matchup. It's going to be a close one! :-[

You can't dump Wade after a bad game. That's insanity. Drink a beer, stick him on the bench, and chill out. He had been pitching well prior to this game. I know it sucks. It caused me to lose a h2h game as well. But you have to take everything into perspective. Wade is too good to drop.
