Looks like Chipper Jones is headed to the DL. In other news, water is wet, taco diarrhea burns and astronaut ice cream is delicious. Couple of things spring to mind. First, steroids lead to injuries. Before 2004, Chipper played in at least 150 games for eight years in a row. Yes, that’s right. He wasn’t always injury-prone. It just feels that way. Why doesn’t anyone question Chipper about steroids? Is it because he’s white (or Caucasian for the PC gang…. Or posse, if gang’s too edgy for you)? Second, Chipper will challenge .400 and just barely qualify for the batting title. This will result in a bunch of crazy old coots (ala Buzz Bizzinger) coming out of the woodwork to say things like, “Hogwash! Williams had 150 more at-bats!” To this I say, I agree. I hope Chipper doesn’t hit .400. I hate that Bonds owns the home run record, that Titantic beat Star Wars for #1 box office and that Joey Chestnut beat Kobayashi. Third, Chipper seems racist to me. Just like Lance Berkman. This is completely unfounded. Just a gut call. I might even be held libel for saying it, but I’m partially insane, so there’s that. My craziness is why you’re here reading. If I were boring, I’d yawnstipate you and you’d move on. What does this mean for fantasy baseball? Nothing really. Just some things I needed to get off my chest. Anyway, here’s some things I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:

Roy Oswalt – Might be headed to the Disgraceful List a few months after he should’ve. A month or so ago, I said Oswalt would pitch through injury because that’s just how he’s built. (This site is easily searched so I’m going to leave it up to you guys to find that link. Trust me, I said it. I have a photographic memory for nonsense.) Oswalt’s not Chipper Jones, I’ll tell you that. He’ll keep pitching if he can. Since he came out of the game, my non-professional opinion is that Oswalt may hit the DL.

Chad Cordero – Out for the season. As far back as April 3rd (Yes, I found that link myself, smart ass.), I told you Rauch would get more saves and you should unload Cordero, whether you listened is on you. You do what you do; I do what I do and we meet somewhere in the middle. Mapquest it!

Juan Pierre – Hit the DL for the first time in his career. He’ll be out long enough to drop him in most leagues (4-6 weeks). The one guy who held Ethier this whole time just said this, “Yes!” Everyone else just said, “Whatever.”

Eric Byrnes – He aggravated his hamstring. (Or is it reaggravated? And if it’s aggravated then when does it become reaggravated? After the second aggravation? Third? This shizz will keep me up!) I told you to go after Byrnes, now that I see it will be a recurring injury, get out before you’re *pinkie to mouth* burned. Not worth it, trade him for 50 cents on the dollar.

Troy Percival – Wow, big night in fantasy baseball, right? Right. So he (re)aggravated his hamstring strain too. (Maybe… and this is a longshot, but bear with me…. Maybe Byrnes had a Percival voodoo doll and vice versa, but they made a pact to not use each other’s voodoo dolls. Then when Byrnes felt a tweak in his hamstring, he thought Percy betrayed him, so he went into his locker and stuck a needle in Percival’s voodoo doll hammy. Or not. I’m speculating.) Wheeler takes over for Percy until he returns.

Felix Hernandez – Right when the injury happened I said he’d be out at least 15 days. Everyone else said he’d make his next start. I called bullshit. Now he’s headed to the DL. Are you a doctor, Grey? No, I saw the injury and F-Her was carried off the field. That means DL for a last place team’s ace in June. Dur.

Brian Fuentes – Kazaam!

Josh Willingham – 2 HRs, been getting some “Would you get with this or would you get with that? I think you’ll get with this, because this is where it’s at” questions regarding Willingham. So here goes, Willingham over Thome, Swisher, Hermedia, anyone on the A’s, Headley, Bruce, Lyle Overbay, Chris Davis, Swisher, Per Djoos, Snyder, Billy Butler, Frenchy and Fred Lewis. Willingham not over Tulowitzki, Doumit, Kouzmanoff, Gordon, Dye, Parra, any closer currently getting saves and Corey Hart. This list was paid for by the committee to get Willingham on your team.

Mark DeRosa – 2 HRs, 6 RBIs and the start at third as Aramis took a family vacay. Must be something about the last name Ramirez because I could totally see Aramis and Manny getting along like two peas in an empanada.

Jhonny Peralta – 5-for-5, HR, 3 doubles, 3 RBIs, superflouous “H.”

Jim Thome – Hit another home run. I mentioned yesterday that he was getting picked up by me and he did.

Matt Thornton – Got the save yesterday instead of Jenks. Think it might have been just a matter of Jenks being overworked. I’m trying to get to the bottom of this. Stay tuned… (Or simply tell me what’s going on. That might be nice for a change.)

Joel Zumaya – Got the save in Jones’s stead. Just another case of the regular closer being overworked. Or is it? Yes, it seems that way. But it could mean Zumaya might get eight to ten saves from this point on just to “keep everyone fresh,” which is also known as  “not letting Jones blow too many games.”

Aaron Harang – 7 IP, 8 Ks, 3 ER, 1.14 WHIP. Now that looks like a Harang line. I’ll take that from now until October with a few wins mixed in.

Roy Halladay – Threw a four-hit, shutout against the Mariners. Jeffrey Loria, sick of trying to make the Marlins bad and failing, announced he would buy Seattle’s team, move them to Florida and call them the Marliners. First move: Rehire Bill Bavasi. Where did you go so terrifically wrong with Sexson that I went so horribly right with Jorge Cantu?

Dave Bush – Pimple-faced teenager runs in front of your car, “Watch out, Mister! Dave Bush is falling back to earth!” You stop short and Dave Bush falls in front of your car.

  1. Steve says:

    You’d drop Renteria or Kepp for Willingham, then?

  2. goknick says:

    Willingham not over Kouzmanoff? wow, this one is interesting…

    is it because of positional VORP? or is it something other than that?

    how about Chris Davis VS. Kouzmanoff? which one could provide better statistical output @ 1B/3B position for rest of season?

    i’m in league that counts H/AB + R + TB + HR + RBI + BB + SB + AVG + OPS, hence the question…..

  3. wakeNbake says:

    Is Wakefield a somewhat safe play @TB? The knuckler has been dancing lately.

    @goknick: I got a chance to watch Davis last night when he played the Yanks. He only went 1-4, but I gotta say he has a sweet swing. He just looks like a hitter.

  4. BSA says:

    @wakeNbake: Wakefield – That knuckleball looooves the dome. No interference from the wind.

  5. BSA says:

    YES!? Now lets see if Ethier can take advantage of the opportunity.

  6. Joe says:

    I have three starters goin at home tonight.

    Ervin against A’s.
    Garza against Boston.
    Baker against Tigers.

    Am i starting all three, or what’s the recommendation??

  7. Frank Rizzo says:

    All this talk of Wakefield….does that mean Garza is not a good play? I’m pretty nervous to start him tonight. Shields worked nicely for me last night but 2 nights in a row against the Sawx is pushing it.

    Anyone see about a 2-1 or 3-2 game tonight?

  8. Frank Rizzo says:

    Harang was dropped in our league. I put in my waiver but was swiped by someone else. The interesting thing is he dropped Dustin McGowan for Harang. I’m not really following the logic by this guy since I think it may be a push between the 2. I’m probably putting in a waiver for McGowan now.

  9. Frank Rizzo says:

    Peralta was unbelievable last night and I almost went and picked him up again. I’ve been starting JJ Hardy lately and I’ve got to say, he deserves mention too. He’s in middle of one of his hot streaks right now and he went 3/5 last night himself. He and Perralta have been filling the position admirably for me the last couple weeks as Yunel Escobar has struggled with injury.

    I’m counting the days to getting Furcal back in the lineup….hopefully 100% again.

  10. Frank Rizzo says:

    @Joe: I think you’ve got to start Ervin against the A’s. I’m debating the Garza vs. Boston thing myself. And Baker vs. Detroit looks pretty decent at the moment since Detroit will be without Magglio who’s on the DL, and Cabrera who’s about to go on the DL (DAMNIT).

  11. Commie-tment Issues says:

    Well Chris Davis is still available… Do I go get him for Headley? I would’ve done it already but they seriously look like players of the same mold.

  12. goknick says:

    @wakeNbake: Yeah I saw the game last night as well (well it’s morning in asia here); Davis looked confident enough, but I can’t say the same about Bradley, whom i promptly saw him hilariously throw-off the bat on his 4th strike-out AB…..

    i just hope Bradley doesn’t drop-off that quickly.. i have both him and davis on my roster…. bradley served me well so far…

  13. goknick says:

    @Commie-tment Issues: Davis might be different player than Headley, at least in my opinion.

    Davis definitely have more raw power in his swing, while Headley is looking promising also, I think it’s a toss-up in terms of production right at the moment (Davis better power number, Headley better AVG).

    Headley is a lock to play everyday, while i suspect Davis is gonna take time off here and there….

    i’ve also dropped Headley for Davis, but i’ll tell you this much– none of them will give you much BB contribution right now, if BB is one of your fantasy category.

  14. jph says:

    Am I a moron for even thinking about picking up Aubrey Huff to replace Glaus at 3rd???Kouz is available but just not doing it for me.

    Also, does anyone see Mussina get 20 wins?

  15. wakeNbake says:

    @BSA: Is a loooving knuckleball a good thing?…ha

  16. wakeNbake says:

    According to the St. Louis Post Dispatch, Adam Wainwright (finger) is hoping to return shortly after the All-Star break.

    Wainwright is scheduled to be examined Monday by doctors, at which point he could be cleared to begin throwing.


  17. knighttown says:

    Bookmark this one Grey, some real LOL’s (if we did those sorts of things, which we don’t). I get your drift on the Chipper thing. If we’re coming clean, I get the sense that John Rocker is a racist too.

    I got another home run from my catcher, Vicrodguel Saltolivandez, last night. That’s 2. So I guess that meanis I’ve had 2 times as many HR from the catcher position this week than then entire seaso…no, that’s not right…I hate trying to fucking compare things to zero. If I remember my Grade 12 math correctly, zero times anything is still zero. It’s like fucking magic. Zero times stegasaurus? Still zero.

    And yes, Grade 12 is when I learned my multiplication tables. You see, I’m Canadian and we prefer to teach our children life skills that will prepare them for one of the three occupations available to us North of the 47th; igloo/wigwam building, Mountie or something in the dog sled business, instead of fru-fru things like math. For instance, I did a double major in Pharmacy and Grizzly Bear skinning. Tough course load.

    Bottom line? My catchers have hit more than 2.876 billion times as many HR’s this week than the entire season combined.

    Oh yeah, it’s my Country’s birthday today so that should be acknowledged, eh?

  18. Commie-tment Issues says:

    Is Ethier worth consideration now? I’m in strong need of a 3rd OF due to Bruce’s suckage. I was thinking of dumping Headley for him, instead of C. Davis.


  19. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Steve: Either one. Drop Renteria first.

    @goknick: Does have to do with position and his 2nd half last year was solid. Here’s to another one. I want Kouz over Davis.

    @wakeNbake: I wouldn’t go anywhere near Wakefield, but he does usually have very solid games against the Rays. Davis looks great and you might catch lightning in the bottle but he Ks a lot too.

    @Commie-tment Issues: Ha!

    @Joe: I wouldn’t start Garza.

    @Frank Rizzo: JJ has been very solid. Good call on that.

    @Commie-tment Issues: re: Headley/Davis — They’re very similar, but I like Davis home park/lineup and upside a bit better.

    @goknick: You shouldn’t be relying on Bradley.

    @jph: Kouz is better than Huff.

  20. Grey

    Grey says:

    @knighttown: Wow, that’s another great comment. Didn’t you win Comment O the Week last week? Good luck, but remember Pat Riley has a copyright on Three-Peat.

    @Commie-tment Issues: I want Davis, Bruce or Headley over Ethier.

  21. Commie-tment Issues says:

    @Grey: Added Davis, dropped Headley. Looked at Ethier, shrugged shoulders. Emailed the girlfriend, now going to the bathroom.

    Peace out.

  22. Zebo says:

    @Grey: Thome over Swisher? Swisher is a better name for basketball than baseball. Last year Thome was pretty good in the second half.

  23. goknick says:

    @Grey: 1) So get this: should I drop Davis immediately for Kouz? nobody seemed to want Kouz in my league right now, it’s just 1 click away from adding-dropping…

    2) Bradley issue: Bradley has been savior to my team so far, and i know i shouldn’t count on his performance for rest of year, but since no one from my league is biting my trade bait, so…

    my question would be, can i survive to win few more games w/ following batters:

    C-posada, 1B-pujols,
    2B-pedroia, SS-tejada,
    3B-huff, OF-willingham + bruce + swisher + thames,
    2B/SS-kelly johnson, 1B/3B-b. butler, UT-thome,
    bench-ramirez (cubs on maternity leave) + bradley + davis (both bad match-up vs. nyy)
    DL-ortiz + ordonez

    i know i probably shouldn’t dropped jason kubel for thome…

  24. Zebo says:

    @Grey: Chris Davis over Thome over Swisher?

  25. Zebo says:

    @everyone: is Aviles done?

  26. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Commie-tment Issues: Well played.

    @Zebo: @goknick: Thome/Kouz were solid in 2nd half and I’m getting on board now. The thing is with Davis, he’s completely unknown and may hit 15 home runs in the month or he may strikeout 30 times these next two weeks and be back in the minors by July 15th. Davis is high risk/high reward, but Thome/Kouz can be very usuable and both have shown signs recently. So you gotta ask yourself, do you feel lucky? Well, do ya?

    Also, I don’t really want Swisher, but he could have a good week or two.

  27. goknick says:

    @Zebo: i was tempted to get Aviles when Miggy Tejada was struggling last month… but even to that, i think he’s just short-term pick-up.

  28. cockyphoenix says:

    Anybody ever have a weekend trip turn into almost a month from random troubles and delays popping up? Ugh.

    Anyway, I cut ties with Jay Bruce a while ago because my OF is so stacked, but the waiver wire is enticing. I’ve got Beltre behind Aramis at 3rd, so he’s probably droppable.

    OF: Holliday, Rios, Crawford, Hamilton

    My Util spot is chosen from among the 4th OF, backup 3B, or the one of Tejada/Tulowtizki who isn’t at SS for me that day.

    Now to the FAs. Hunter Pence and Shane Victorino, and I’m behind in steals. Also just noticed some others while typing this: Votto (behind Fielder), and Encarnacion.

    Recommendations? I really like Edwin as a backup 3B–over Beltre even–but I’m averse to Adrians not married to Rocky. Or is Pence good enough to fustercluck my OF straight up?

  29. goknick says:

    @Grey: yeah Kouz is definitely available in my league at this moment, i’ll take a deep look; here’s the thing though, he’s not drawing walks…. but he sure can hit.

    what would be your projection for Kouz’s second half?

  30. Frank Rizzo says:

    @Grey: “Also, I don’t want Swisher, but he could have a good week or 2.”

    It was just 2/3 weeks ago that you were saying to go get Swisher on your roster. I questioned you about it stating I didn’t have room since I was happy with my roster but you stated that I should find a way to get him on my roster. Please explain the change of heart?

  31. JR says:

    Snyder is killing me. How would you rank the following?

    Iannetta, Napoli, Hernandez, Olivo, Flores, Varitek, Ramirez

  32. Grey

    Grey says:

    @cockyphoenix: Victorino.

    @goknick: 30/14/45/.310

    @Frank Rizzo: And he’s been hot since, right? Swisher’s super streaky and he’s been hot and might stay hot for another two or three weeks. Then suddenly mid-July Swisher will revert to April Swisher. What I said was in context amongst Thome, Kouz and Davis. Sorry, if that wasn’t clear in my comment. I think Kouz/Thome will have better 2nd halfs and Davis could have the best or the worst. He’s an all or nothing type hitter.

    @JR: Olivo, Iannetta, Napoli, Hernandez, punt.

  33. Endless Summer says:

    @Commie-tment Issues: I think it is a perfect storm for Ethier. Injury happens, and he has been white hot in July his two previous seasons. My reasoning is that he likes it when the ladies bring their titties to Chavez Ravine in bikini tops. That would definitely get me to hit 1.000+ OPS.

    @Grey: I hear you on Chipper. Atlanta’s pitchers get a free pass too. They’d have you believe Jordan Schaefer is one bad apple but that got swept under the rug very quickly. Hell, Andruw Jones’ production year-by-year makes more sense if he was 35 right now…

  34. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Endless Summer: Yeah, the Andruw thing makes no sense either. Good call.

  35. Frank Rizzo says:

    @Grey: Ok then, Thome is still on our WW. I think I’d like to hold onto Swisher for awhile, especially since Miggy’s hurt, but I’m considering dropping Connor Jackson for him. Jackson is great for BA but the R’s and RBI have dried up some in the desert and his power is gone. I’ve just held him on my bench because he was so good in the beginning of the year but now I don’t see why I wouldn’t drop him for Thome. Thome’s a pain in the razz though because he’s only “utility” on yahoo. I’ve been using Giambi in the utility spot.

  36. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Frank Rizzo: I wouldn’t drop CJ for him. You can’t have two utility guys.

  37. Hank

    Hank says:

    @Grey: My RCL team sucks a big one offensively, I’m last or close to last in about every category! My pitching is pretty boss so I could probably afford to move a Javier Vasquez, so could you tell these schmohawks how awesome he is!

  38. Grey

    Grey says:

    ***Everyone*** I’m not sure there’s a better pitcher right now than Javier Vazquez. On top of natural ability, I once saw him churn butter with his toes.

  39. Hank

    Hank says:

    @Grey: Now that’s what I’m talking about. Come and get em! I promise I’m only looking for about 40 HRs, 90 RBIs, 100 Rs, and 15 SBs in return!

  40. Baron Von Vulturewins says:

    @Grey: Davis over Swisher? What if Swish had hit four grand slams this past week, instead of just two?

    I agree on Swish’s streakiness, but he can have two good months, not just two good weeks. See April through May ’06. I’m buying in on Swish — have had him for the past few weeks and I’m nothing but smiles.

  41. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Baron Von Vulturewins: I more or less agree with you. Was about three weeks ago I bought in on Swisher. We’re about two to three weeks away from the wheels coming off.

  42. Frank Rizzo says:

    About Swish….opinions/assumptions are being thrown out based on the past.

    Question: Are the itty-bitty ballpark, the team change, the manager/phylosophy change, and the change of talent around Swish being taken into account? They should be.

  43. Commie-tment Issues says:

    I look at Swisher as a poor man’s Adam Dunn – Less RBI’s and about 15 less HRs.

    @JR: Iannetta, Olivo, Napoli, punt.

    @Zebo: Aviles ain’t done. He just got moved to the top of the order. With only 15 strikeouts in 94 at-bats, he’ll steadily get on base in front of Gordon and Guillen – I’m guessing at least top 12 SS production going forward.

  44. Grey

    Grey says:

    SWISHER — Swisher is streaky, which you can use to your advantage, but let’s not forget some things we know. He’s crap. He Ks 125+, .250, he had 22 HRs last year, which isn’t very good, and that IS his pace for this year, he bats anywhere from 1st (which is bad for him) to 7th (which is better, but not ideal), and he thinks he’s a Giambi with his facial hair.

    EDIT: Missed a few words.

  45. Commie-tment Issues says:

    @Grey: I just love it how he has a granny, then hits two more yesterday and everyone jumps on it like a drunk sorority girl passed out on their couch. Yes – it would’ve been good to have him when he hit those dingers, no – he’s not going to repeat this week in and week out. And I wouldn’t really take the risk of leaving him in my line-up simply in hopes of Swisher having a good week/day/game. I’d rather let the 0-4 with 3 Ks outings in between ride on the free-agency.
    However, if there’s a moron lacking power in my league. I’d flip him with another player for an upgrade.

  46. IowaCubs

    IowaCubs says:

    @Grey: @Hank: @Grey:
    I’ll take Vazquez. You get a McDonald’s Apple Pie and my wonderful case of the clap.

  47. KarlJ says:

    Would you trade Billingsley and Kendrick for Harang and Pedroia?
    I am sick of Kendrick’s empty .300 average at this point

  48. Commie-tment Issues says:

    @KarlJ: I’d do that.

  49. “…might even be held libel for saying it…” No, I believe expressing an opinion is still protected speech, and thus, no liability attaches to the potentially libelous statement. Sorry, but I’m still at work and thinking like a lawyer.
    As far as Swisher, he’s on a growing list of players that are dead to me, along with Sheets, King Felix and Penny.

  50. Grey

    Grey says:

    @johnwhorfin: Thanks. Maybe you can give P0rk Burns a job. I think he’s in law school. And I believe his real name is P0rk Burns with a zero.

  51. Joe says:

    Grey, i drafted Swisher with high hopes of at least a repeat performance of two years ago moving to a better lineup and ballpark, i stuck with him through his first two craptastic months and am now hoping for a glorious summer of longballs after his resurgent June…

    I read your 08 rankings again earlier today with a view to pinpointing some buy low opportunities…And you seemed extremely high on him then, saying
    “We finally got some great upside here as Swisher takes his carefree attitude over to the White Sox and gets to hit in a much better lineup. He needs to stabilize his average, which is odd for a man with a good eye, but there’s major sleeper potential here. I’m high on Swisher this year and these numbers are low-balling him. Projections: 95/30/100/.275”

    Why the change of heart on Swish??

  52. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Joe: That was written in January, and the season happened. I realized he was more the player that we had seen and less the player I hoped he become in his age 27 season, a year some players breakout. A month later in February, I checked in with, “The move to the new team was a boon to his value, but that was mostly because his pre-trade value was pretty boon-less. Caveat #5, Don’t go drafting Swisher expecting top OF value. He’s okay, but keep expectations in order. Projections: 90/33/105/.250”

    Now five months later, I say he might only reach 25. Do you see what Swisher does? He disappoints.

    EDIT: Typo

  53. justin says:

    16 team keeper league

    a: Crawford/Ed Encarnacion/Weeks

    what do you think about this trade?


  54. Grey

    Grey says:

    @justin: I’m thinking I want neither side, but I’d have to take the Chipper side. BTW, did you sign that Tia, as in Tia Tequila? If so, that’s awesome.

  55. Commie-tment Issues says:

    i thought her name was Tila?

  56. Joe says:

    It is. Grey’s clearly not “with it”.

    Ha! MTV trash…

  57. Commie-tment Issues says:

    She’s hosting a club opening here in Baltimore this Thursday… that’s the only way I knew – saw the name on a poster today.

  58. p0rk burn says:

    @johnwhorfin: @Grey: Grey you beat me to it. I’m actually done with the school part, now the only thing standing in the way of P0rk Burn with a zero Esq. is the bar in 4 weeks.

    Razzball Commenters League Week in Review, Vol. 2 is up in the Rants/Raves/Reviews. Point and laugh.

  59. cruisinkc says:

    Loney, Co-Jack, and Kotchman are all available in my league. Which guy do you see being the most productive the rest of the year?

  60. Nick says:

    my chris young & chone figgins for brian roberts? What is the deal with Figgins? Is he going to pick it up anytime soon?

  61. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Nick: Figgins had a knee infection. I’d do that trade.

  62. Joe says:

    Are you as low on Roberts now as you were prior to the season Grey?

  63. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Joe: I had him at Projections: 105/10/55/.290/30 — I think those steals are obviously too low now. Add ten steals.

  64. FYI, Chipper’s in the starting lineup against the Phillies tonight.

    And Chipper isn’t questioned for steroids for the same reason Ken Griffey Jr. isn’t: they are both just injury prone.

    Plus, Chipper has put up the same type numbers he produced before he became an injury liability. He didn’t have any big power surge.

  65. Joe says:

    Looks like i should have started Garza Grey.

    I decided i had better listen to you as i was cursing myself after sitting Parra against the Twins contrary to your advice a couple days back.

    But after this latest screw up of yours, coupled with the “Tia” Tequila debacle, and your shocking slander of my boy Swisher, i’m off to reach Karabell on Twitter. Adios, razzball! I may return to use your site again if i’m entering any razzball leagues, cos your general player projections should give me a craptastic team!


  66. Grey

    Grey says:

    @BlueWorkhorse: From AP, “Manager Bobby Cox said today that he fully expected Chipper to land on the disabled list.”

    @Joe: Damn you, Garza! You’ve driven a wedge between Joe and I.

  67. Joe says:

    Chipper’s playing tonight anyway, i’m watching bits of that game.

    It’s ok, Grey, Baker’s doin just fine for me, that eases my burning uncontrollable anger.

  68. Grey

    Grey says:

    @Joe: I’m happy you’re almost happy.

  69. wakeNbake says:

    Did Double E get taken out of the game for some reason today??

  70. Joe says:

    Grey, a couple queries before i sign off….

    Adam LaRoche 2-2 tonight after goin 3-5 yesterday, is he finally turning the corner and worth a pickup?

    Should i be getting worried about Aviles being a flash in the pan and pick up Peralta, Barmes, Bartlett or Aybar? He’s 0-4 tonight…

    Is Brett Gardner, called up by the Yanks, of value? I hear he has speed…

    Do you trim your tache regularly?

    All the best….

  71. wakeNbake says:

    double E got ejected.

    @Joe: Gardner is really fast, Id only add him if your desperate for speed tho

    @Grey: Alright alright… I totally want some STDs from her!

    Grey says:

    @Joe: re: LaRoche — Might get hot, worth a shot if you’re desperate. re: Aviles — I’d give him another week. re: Gardner — what wakeNbake said. re: ‘stache — trim and Just For Men, weekly.

    @Commie-tment Issues: You and me both.

  74. cruisinkc says:

    @Grey: what’s your take on Rangers’ lineup? are they going to maintain their offensive production level?

  77. p0rk burn says:

    Whoa. I see beisbols. Now people will know me for the uncontributing waste-of-space that I am. At least my “Screw O.Cab.” comments will be rated high.

  78. Grey

    Grey says:

    @cruisinkc: Yeah, if you need a starter. Cain’s worth a shot.

    @goknick: When it gets hot in Texas, they actually get more runs. Rangers problems every year is pitching.

    @p0rk burn: Yeah, we’re trying them out. We’ll see.

  79. wakeNbake says:

    Would u give up Berkman for Sizemore?

  80. Grey

    Grey says:

    @wakeNbake: I gave up Pujols for Sizemore, so yeah. Definitely if you need steals and runs more than average and RBIs.

  81. wakeNbake says:

    Jo-Blo lived up to his name tonight. Kobayashi 2nd in line or maybe Perez??

  82. goknick says:

    I’ve also seen Elijah Dukes heating up recently, are we seeing Dukes of wizard or Dukes of hazard in next few months? is he worth pick up versus my current OF core of Willingham-Swisher-Thame-Bradley-Bruce?

    Should I drop anyone for Dukes right now? or i could use some time to wait to see if he indeed keeps the wizardness?

  83. Joe says:

    @cruisinkc: Yeah, i’d do that trade.

    @wakeNbake: I’m starting to get worried about Capps.

    @goknick: I had Dukes on my team up until Butler got called back up, i like his potential over Thames. Branyan is Thames-lite, and neither of them are gonna be worth a roster spot soon. I’d sell Bradley for 50 cents on the dollar as well, if you can get someone valuable for him, do it, cos you’ll regret it when he breaks down physically/mentally soon if you don’t.
