Milwood, Zito, and D Willis. All three have been wildly inconsistant. Zito has looked good at times but nowhere near as dominanty as he had been. Willis is great one game, garbage the next game and Millwood has not been that impresssive. Who will have a big second half? Do any of them have trade value? Would you drop any of them for Adam Eaton, Jake Peavy, J. PiƱeiro or K. Ishii?

I haven't been following Dontrelle this season, but I'd definitely drop one of those 3 in favour of Peavy, and I'd give great consideration to dropping a second one for Pineiro depending on your league's categories.

If it's my team I'm dropping Millwood for Peavy, pronto. Millwood just looks wrong this season. Zito I'd hang onto; Willis is dicey, but one or two more great outings from Eaton (against someone besides the Mariners) and I'd have to consider that switch, too.

Agreed ^...... Peavy has looked good, and Millwood has not. Do it before someone else beats you to the punch!

i traded millwood and graves for otsuka, lidge and sheilds in one league (although I had a 30 save lead and still had three closers) and don't feel bad about it. I think millwood will get worse ratio wise, not better in that park.

the one I worry about is colon. carpenter, rogers, peavy and a few others are avaiable on the wire.

I would hang onto Zito and Millwood. Both pitchers are too good to maintain their current slump. Zito has started to right himself and is going to rebound just nicely. I can't see Millwood stinking for the rest of the year. He has a lot of offense behind him, he just needs to get some runs early. I'd rather have Peavy that D-train. Peavy is a solid starter in a good park

Eaton is totally valid imo.. been sayin' this since the time he had a 6.00 era. no one listens to me... :-D

anyways, i think dropping any of those guys 'cept maybe Millwood might not be the way to go. the best thing might be to pull offuneven deals even if you dont get the full value back and pick up the guys on the WW.
