Throw Cruz in there while Burrell deals with Johan.

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.

Nothing like facing Johan to overcome an 0-7 night at the plate :lol:

I know you should never bench your studs, but - thinking of the relative recent form of each player - what do you think about sitting Howard against Johan?

I have Pena (up against Purcey) to move into 1B and Markakis to take Pena's place at Util.

Pat the Bat's record against Johan is decent BTW, and fully expecting to get sonavabenched, but I feel like I've gotta sit him. Phils might do it anyway...

Usually I'd say bench Pena against a lefty but I'd probably bench Howard in your situation.

Sonavabench!

Oh well. Still think you you can make a case for benching a hitter like Howard against possibly the best pitcher in baseball.

He better not go deep again, though...

If it makes you feel any better, as I was watching the game I grimaced when Howard hit it out. I knew your sonavabench response was on the way.

As long as Pena and Markakis contribute I'll be OK ;)

Looks like they're all teeing off on Johan today - except Pat the Bat of course.

Some payback right there.

Thanks Carlos!

Update: Oops. Not lookiing like quite such a genius now. Howard has reached safely each time he's come up and Markakis is 1-5. Shoulda left well alone - Howard at 1B and Pena at Util.

Sigh.

OK - officially hating this fucking game.

Sonavabenched by Howard, Hanrahan and Ayala. Kazaam'd by Lewis after the Indians scored twice in the 8th to go up by four.

I'm a whiner I know, but i need to vent.
