Steve, you own Ethier so that's a pretty good consolation prize, unless you need saves more than RBI. My team is in the opposite situation. Fairly set in saves but need RBIs to gain pts, and desperately needing HLDs. Bell and Bucholtz have really killed me in the last few days.
For me, the team I am chasing in RBI owns Ethier, of course. He has almost more RBI by himself than my entire "offense." So basically the worst possible scenario happened in that SD game for my team yet again.
I just had a bad feeling all year that those missed stats would hurt me, then it looked for a month like it might not, but now things don't look good at all. It's only a matter of time until I lose first unless my offense gains pts, but of course, it has stunk lately. I managed to delay the slide for a couple of days by picking up K Johnson, Belliard, and Guzman, but they are not the answer. I need the regulars to hit.
The only thing to go well today for me was benching Dempster, and a Beltran homer. I didn't even pick up Cody Ross because Mclouth came back so fast or I could have had another homer today.
