Strasburg needs TJ surgery

A few sources say he has a "significant tear" of the ulnar collateral ligament in his pitching elbow and he's likely headed for TJ sugery. Of course, that means this phenom will go the way of Francisco Liriano. See you in 2012, Stras! A shame, really.

Re: Decimated by injury...

Add Carlos Quentin to the list of lost bats. This team has been absolutely destroyed by injury, but I'm still in the playoffs: C- Ryan Doumit 1st- Billy Butler (Picked up to replace Conor Jackson) 2nd- Mike Aviles 3rd- Chris Davis SS- Hanley Ramirez OF- Corey Hart (Once my 3rd OFer) OF- Hunter Pence...

Re: Decimated by injury...

ARGH. Now Quentin is sitting because he was hit by pitches in FIVE STRAIGHT GAMES. The first player to do so since 1920? So Lee, Longoria and Quentin all down because they were hit by pitches.

Lame... so very lame.

I drafted him in two leagues, late rounds, thinking I had a steal. Not so much! I dropped him for Mike Aviles in both leagues a few weeks back, and I haven't regretted it either.

Re: Decimated by injury...

I agree with White L. Cut VMart and try someone else in 3rd. Also, you probably don't want to take on the risk of VMart or Hideki with that decimated squad. Go for a healthy OF. I cut Lowell for Melvin Mora, Matsui for Garrett Anderson and put Longoria on the DL. I'm going to keep VMart for now, if...

Re: Drop Jhonny for Aviles?

Thank god for Aviles. He and Kaz are my best two hitters right now. Sad, but true. They have my last 3 homers... what the hell are the rest of my guys doin'? I dropped Kelly Johnson in one league and Christian Guzman for Aviles in another, and I couldn't be happier. Another big day today: 4/4 with ...

Re: Whoa now, Liriano finally gets the call!

I wish I had him in a few leagues (or even one). In one league I held on to him off and on all year. I drafted him, dropped him, and picked him back up six weeks ago or so when the hype started up about his "imminent" return. He kept pitching so well, I couldn't drop him... and I kept win...

Re: Whoa now, Liriano finally gets the call!

Looked fantastic in his first game back:

6IP/1W/0ER/3H/3BB

Very encouraging, I grabbed him in two leagues... and I needed a good starter in both. I hope he can keep it up.
