Is anyone buying his turnaround?

In the past two weeks, he has a BABIP of .081, mostly attributable to a miniscule 2.6% LD rate. He's been giving up more fly balls, but none have left the yard. While he's brought down his BB/9 (career 3.25, last 14 days 1.69), he walked 4.32 per 9 when in AAA, which makes me think he isn't suddenly going get all Maddux up in here.

Has anyone heard or read anything that would justify such a radical change? I've seen people dropping other pitchers I have more faith in (Randy Wells, Pettitte, Volstad, Zimmermann, eg) and I wonder if I'm missing the boat here.

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.

Awesome! I can't wait to watch that happen to someone else!

And thanks for the similar take on Bastardo. His last start would have really killed my week.

Quote of the year 2009?

Anyways, agreed. Just to re-iterate the Sox have the worst defense in the league.

Picked him up when Peavy went on the DL. He was the best available… it was him or Wakefield. Wakefield’s the safer pick but what the hey. I’ll give him one start…

Hmm… I think I mighta talked myself into getting Wakefield instead LOL.

Anyway, losing Peavy sucks... just like losing my starting 2b and C... sonnuva b.
