What's up with this guy? How long until everybody starts arguing about who picked him up first?

Apparently about 5 seconds, because I'm claiming credit for picking him up yesterday in the RCL. Suck it poseurs, p0rk burn rules!

Seriously though, looking at his career stats there's no realistic expectation he keeps this up. Ride the hot streak while it lasts.

I added him three weeks ago in the Razzball league where I'm trying to accrue Ks. He's been on bench for three weeks while I wait for him to stop hitting home runs and just K.

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.

That's borderline seeking advice in the RCL.

Got my eye on you Oinksooweey

Fair enough, Hippo, but I think the distinction here is he was on my team before I mentioned it and I pretty much answered my own question - dude is on a hot streak but secretly sucks (see the .220 career best average). It was more like advice for the rest of you people. You really think he's sticking on the team once his average falls back to where it should be? Please. I mean, lets make a trade. Who needs a CI/OF?

Branyan is definitely playing way over his head, but don't expect a complete regression. Dude totally changed his batting mechanics and has been able to sustain it through the minors and majors, he's practically a different player (though just a different flavor of a 3TO-er). I don't think 25-30 HR is out of the question, especially since Hall would stay benched on a little league team the way he's going.

Looks to be cooling off.

First time I've sat him against a righty in a week and he goes deep. I am going with him against Livan tomorrow. He better not stink it up.

And who did I start today instead of Branyan? Jim Thome, who went 0 for 4 with 3Ks when his team scored like 98 runs.

There's nothing sadder than seeing Papa Smurf having a bad day. Nothing.
