More to the point, which one do you think will get back on track first (if either of them do at all)?
I love threads like these. It's barely 2 weeks into the season, and we get sheer brilliance like this. If you expected a repeat performance from Lee this year, you deserve to get owned. Dice - K was just placed on the DL today .... so apparently, his arm is in fact bothering him. Yes, Lincecum hasn't been very good in his first 2 outings ...... so, when you dropping him? Or when are you ready to declare him a bust? Week 3?
I'm sorry - I thought this was a forum for people to discuss opinions, strategies, etc. on the day-to-day happenings on their teams and in the baseball world in general. My mistake. Here, does this work for you - "So far, some of my players are performing a little below expectations, and some are performing a little above expectations, and it's a long season, and players will have their ups and downs. I'll post this same thing in a mont. Also, the sun rises in the east and sets in the west, and water is wet. Tune in next month for the exac same pinpoint analysis".
I'm simply stating these two guys are not only not living up to their expectations, but they are off to bad starts. Is that arguable? Did I say I planned on dropping either of them? No - I asked who is a bigger bust at this point. If you would feel more comfortable with me re-wording it, fine. "Which of these two high-profile starting pitchers has underperformed commensurate with generally accepted expectations level thus far?" Is that better for you, Mr. Baseball?
By the way, Captain Baseball, I did not expect a repeat from Lee o Dice-K...they're my fifth and sixth starters, respectively.
