Not sure if this makes Lou crazy, or a mad genius, but I guess I like it.

Some Quotes:
Quote:
"He looks wonderful," Piniella said of Fukudome. "He's in really good shape. I told him we're holding a spot for him, and we'll put him out in center field and we'll try him in the No. 2 hole in the lineup.

"He said he's been working hard. He's excited about this World Baseball Classic and afterwards, he's looking forward to joining us."

Quote:
"I think he's more acclimated this year," Piniella said. "I know he's worked hard. The Japanese national team, they work hard and have good coaches. He's gotten some good foundation put in. I think you'll see this young man play the way he did the first half of last season all year for us."

I've been hearing things about the Cubs sending over trainers and coaches and such to work on his conditioning and flexibility.

Not sure what to make of this, but it's worth noting anyway if you play in super deep or NL only leagues with OBP.

Crazy. And it won't last.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.

I thought Lou not dumb enough to leave Fontenot out of the starting lineup this year. This proves he is dumb enough. Now I gotta drop Fontenot because Lou is a genie-ass and can't be trusted. Fuko back in Japan by A.S.

In a way, it's not really Lou's fault. It's the management's aggressive behavior. They could have just given him a one year, $10 million offer with a team option for 09. Now they're stuck with him until the end of 2011 for another $36 mil.

This pisses me off as a fantasy owner. I wanted to be the guy who was ahead of the curve on Fontenot's breakout season, but with him batting a likely 6th or worse, 8th, we're stuck with another year of waiting on the Wonder Hampster.
