James McDonald vs. WSH this week... sit or start?

McDonald was great Friday after I picked him up for a spot start (even though he lost 0-1, but that's the price you pay for Buccos pitching). Now I can't bear to drop him - but the question is, do I pitch him against the Nats in Washington, or sit him that game to see how he does?

How can I be a better commissioner?

I'm commissioner of a league I've been running with friends for about 10 years now on Yahoo. I want to be a better commissioner, mainly by creating weekly wrapup reports and stats to keep the league interested for the long haul of the season (not that it isn't an active group, but I think this would...

Re: ESPN vs Yahoo!

I'm doing my first ESPN league (via Razzball of course) this year and, after 10 years of Yahoo Fantasy Baseball, it's going to take some getting used to. I don't really care about the graphics and pictures, I care about usability and so far Yahoo is winning for me - but it's too early for me to make...

Re: Pitching Run

I had such a frustrating year last year - I had an amazing offense (I got M-Cab and Kemp with my first two picks in the draft) but my pitching was godawful. Liriano single-handedly made my bowel movements irregular. I came in fourth based on my lack of pitching stats alone, and that sort of thing st...

Re: Liriano

Drafting Liriano and Volquez have single-handedly put me in a huge hole to begin the fantasy season.

I'm ready to drop both and take my chances with... well, just about anyone at this point.

Who's Pitching Volquez Today?

Volquez is pitching today in Chicago against the Cubbies. Yahoo doesn't like the matchup - neither do I.

Then again, I didn't like the Liriano matchup and he threw a no hitter. What do you guys thing?

Re: Liriano

So what's it called when you pitch a player you almost benched and he throws a no-no?

I call it awesome sauce.

Re: Liriano vs Edwin

I pitched Liriano - as I said I would. He was reminding me of CC the year he won the Cy Young with Cleveland. Had an awful April (ended up 19-7 with most of those losses from April) and I benched him the first game he really started to dominate. He ended up with what seemed like a dozen complete gam...

Re: Liriano vs Edwin

I have decided I'm starting Liriano tonight - I'm going down with this ship. Gardenhire is talking about getting Slowey ready for the rotation if necessary, so the motivation is there. He appears healthy, I drafted him, I need all the pitching I can get with my matchup this week... and I'm not riski...
