This is true in theory but you can't grab some guy off of waivers and "replace" Randy Johnson, Vlad, or Oswalt. The replacement simply cannot duplicate the performance of the stud players like Johnson/Vlad/Oswalt. I chose Randy to be the anchor of my staff and I've gotten ONE win out of him to this point. I had to use guys like Rick Reed, Ted Lilly, and Kip Wells to "replace" Johnson. Luckily Schmidt, Myers, and Millwood picked up the slack for me. It didn't help me that Wade Miller has be useless most of the time. I will qualify for the playoffs so all I care now is that Randy gets his stamina and strength back and dominates in September when it counts!! It's all about September now!!!
