After watching a few of his games I think Kerry is the kind of pitcher who thrives on adrenaline. He pitches better in a close game and worse in a blowout when he loses focus. If only I could figure out which games were blowouts
[b]Bold Predictions:[/b]

Grady Sizemore will have more value than Jason Bay regardless of draft position

Aramis Ramirez in 155 G will hit over .300 40 HR 110 RBIs

Brian McCann will have more value than Jorge Posada regardless of draft position

I just picked up Wood on the waiver wire and I dropped Tim Worrell for him. This was in a 15 team league by the way. :-D

I'm usually very good about being patient with players, but Wood has me in full panic mode. I'm thinking about sitting him until he starts pitching well. :-o

The fact that I was even considering trading him for Mota & Lopez means that if you want Wood, now is the time to make the offer.


This is a quandry to me.....

I am NO FAN of Mota and have said he will be a bust..

That said that saves he may give you(before he loses his job) may make that deal worth it.....again depending on your needs.

While I think Wood has value, I just think he is over-rated in most leagues.


Hmm, I don't want to hijack this thread, but I'd like to hear what you have to say about the latest offer I received. click on over if you would!

Give him some time. He didnt have a spring training and still has to find his control. If he does he can be one of the top pitchers in baseball.
