Gattis, as well. Atlanta letting some guys get a rest while Teheran pitches, or maybe they think Gattis has been part of the problem for him?

Has anyone actually sat down and watched a fair number of Eric Hosmer at bats this year? Basically, I have a shallow league (12 teams, no MI/CI, only 3 OF) team and although it's super early, I'm strongly considering making the aggressive move and cutting him now because I have Hanley coming back (Brandon Crawford has been my SS replacement) and would say him, Maholm, and Estrada are the 3 worst guys on my team. I know conventional wisdom here is small sample size, give him more time but this guy has looked terrible for a year now and no home runs from a first baseman in April is just embarrassing.

Thank god I drafted Chris Davis. :-°

There is always next year. :-D

The Jays have been very sloppy. It seems like every game they fail to make an important play. And it is usually a different player every game.

Dickey has been much better lately, but we don't even know how healthy he really is right now. Morrow is a question mark every start. Buehrle, well, he was never good to begin with. I hated hearing all the talk that Buehrle will give you 200 innings every year like that was the greatest thing ever. 200 innings is cool and all, but those aren't 200 good innings. When was the last time anyone drafted Mark Buehrle for their fantasy team? Josh Johnson was a bit of a crapshoot because of his health, but he has been very disappointing so far. Happ has been the only pitcher who has done what was expected of him, even better, really. J. freaking Happ!

But yeah, they have been sloppy and hardly getting any breaks. Swinging for the fences every bat isn't helping either. And to make matters worse, John Ferrell is in first place and the Yankees are winning with Vernon Wells and Lyle Overbay. I can't imagine a worst start of the season for the Jays.

I'd cut Maholm before I cut Hosmer.

I'd try to trade him first, but not sure what you could get. Yeah I stayed away from him this year because I had him last year and regretted it from about this point on.

I've never seen a pitcher as unlucky as scherzer.

If you GIDP and a run scores, it isn't an RBI? How is it scored? Have I really never heard of this before? :-?

That is not on RBI. I honestly have no clue how you haven't heard of that before.

Well, if Fernandez is going to give up a bomb and Runs, it might as well be my guy hitting it (Buck), with my other guy on base (Duda). Best case scenario I guess... Now that the Mets are up 2 - 1, I'll take 5 scoreless innings from here on out pls.
