i had assumed he would be DL eligible but i guess you're right, doesnt really matter to me though, the benches are big enough to warrant giving him a spot imo. in a h2h league i'll take a chance that he's healthy down the stretch in the 22nd round. if it was roto i probably would have passed on him.

I drafted Carpenter last year and was able to stash him on my DL, but I had 4 or 5 guys on the DL all season it seemed like last year...so for all intents and purposes he was just taking up a roster spot.. It was definitely not worth it since he wasn't his normal dominant self when he came back...of course his injury was/is more serious than Sheets'. It could work out for you. Only time will tell.

Keeping guys who are meant to come back in August seems like a waste to me. At least Smoltz is expected to come back in June. I kept Pedro around all year on the DL a few years back, I think he was pretty decent but still not worth it.

Yeah, I wasn't going to repeat the same mistake I made last year. If we were keeping 20 guys next season it might be a good play, but with only 10 keepers...even if he comes back and performs well he probably wouldn't make the keeper cut. So that means you hope he will contribute in a positive way this season, but that is far from guaranteed...it's possible, it's just not a risk I would want to take.

I don't really come on here that much late at night but I'm constantly around during weekdays work hours. :)

Kaveman almost always seems to pick (work days) after 1am (UK time) / 8pm (ET)?...

Assume you might be up for buddy duty today Aussie? I'm about to go to bed!
