ALL of my pitchers go ONE inning too long!!!

Randy Johnson cruises earlier this week, but can't shut the door on the 7th inning. Curt Schilling inexplicably enters the 8th inning against the Jays the next day, and gets rocked after throwing over 120 pitches. Adam Eaton is just ripping through the D'Backs lineup through 7 and then Richie Sexson parks one to deep center after two walks, one of them intentional.

Today, Jerome Williams, tossing a gem of a game stays for the ninth and allows a 2-run homer from Juan Encarnacion. So close to a CG, but so far, here's hoping Felix Rodriguez can take care of business for the last out.

No wonder my ratios suck!

it would solve all of your (and everyone else's problems) if we, the fantasy GMs i.e. the supreme superpower of the world, not the Grady Littles of the world, got to decide when to take a pitcher out of the game ;-)
[size=10]Manny Ramirez....$20 million
Pedro Martinez....$17.5 million
Curt Schilling...$12 million (and a $2 million bonus)
Never hearing a Yankee fan chant 1918 again...priceless. [/size]

Its good to see Williams getting it together. The guy could win 15 this year. One out away from the CG.

weaver too....he pitched ok through 7 with 6 k's and 3er but 110 pitches. why send him out for the 8th?? he gives up a hit to the first batter......why keep him in. he walks the next batter. why keep him in. not until he walked the bases loaded did they take him out only to have the reliever give up 2 more for weaver turning a respectable 7 innings 3er 6 k's to a terrible 7+ innnings 6 k's 5 er.
