Young or Cuddyer maybe.  Not much else.  Honest.

I wouldn't have any use for those guys - so that takes a little of the sting off.  In any event, I'm pretty happy with Soto as it is.

I think we need about 2 more bench spots...  ::)

I second that.  Or possibly another DL spot...  I've got three guys on the DL right now and at one point had 5 :o.

I don't like seeing people penalized for IR stuff so you should be able to replace those players that are hurt.  I'm ok with one more bench spot but I think 2 is too many as guys just store players on their roster.  I think the 2 DL spots makes up for the need for too many more bench spots so I'm suggesting just one more bench spot. 
 

It's more fun making hard decisions than watching people store bodies on their roster for the sole purpose of not letting others have them. 

I can see having another DL spot next year (up to 3) but at the same time, the same argument applies: how much value do you place on that player?  Dressel got hammered last year with IR stuff, others have as well.  Just part of the game, whether it's baseball, football, basketball or whatever.

Well I just want more guys because I don't have any way to really maintain back-ups for the entire field.  Unless you end up with a guy who is designated at multiple positions, it's really hard to use up all your games and innings.  Part of this is because most teams play 5 or 6 games a week and there aren't a lot of days when you can actually get your other players in.  I had designs of keeping Doumit and Soto because in the 3 or 4 years I've done this I've never even come close to using all my games at Catcher - but I just don't have the roster space to devote to 2 of those guys, and it's a shame because I set it up the way I wanted it.

I was just thinking, hypothetically, if one of us were to start 3 pitchers, like maybe a Padre, a D'Back, and a Brave, and like, they gave up a combined 21 H, 18 ER, 9 BB, and 6 HR in... i dunno.... say 11.2 IP, that would be really bad.

Just had a dream about that happening, it'd be weird if it really did.

I must have had a large carbohydrate load directly prior to sleep.

Yeah, that was an ungodly result last night.  I sort of thought it would happen to Hudson since the Rangers can hit, but Webb?  That blew my mind.

Now I'm thinking I have to sit Haren today with the way the A's were swinging...  My pitching is definitely taking a turn for the worse.

Or you can package him with Burrell and send him to me for Ellsbury.

With my pitching as suddenly shaky as it is, I'm going to hang onto him for now.

And Brutal is the word I was looking for earlier... those numbers were brutal.

Haren and Burrell aren't the players you're looking for.  You will move them along to me.

So I'm going to take a wild guess and say that 'INF' in the ERA and WHIP columns for Carlos Marmol stands for 'infinity'...  WOW!  And I thought Mark Buehrle's opening day performance was bad...  That ruined an otherwise good night from my other pitchers...

Yeah, ERA is earned runs divided by IP - so apparently Marmol couldn't record an out and gave up some batting practice.

Just once I'd like to see "INF" on my bank statement instead of my Y! team page.

Yeah, he walked two, hit a batter and then was taken out...  The next pitcher gave up a grand slam...

Now that I would like to see!

Does anyone know where I can check on stat corrections?  2 of the runs Webb gave up in his last start were changed to unearned and I want to make sure that's reflected in the numbers.

It never fails.  A few days after I get rid of him Curtis Granderson starts a 15 day hitting streak and raises his average almost 60 points:

Quote
Granderson hit a pair of triples and extended his hitting streak to 15 games. Over the past 15 games Granderson is hitting .436 (24-for-55) with two homers, seven RBI and two stolen bases and has raised his average from .235 to .294. The window of opportunity to obtain Granderson from a disgruntled owner is gone, but if you were able to buy low, enjoy the ride.
