alright, i have held onto this guy all year hoping for a sleeper pitcher who will give me a bunch of much needed wins and K's with good peripherals? is there any chance that he turns it around... he has zero trade value in my league right now, and i mean zero, guys wont even give me their worst player for him !+) I am going to drop him for harang, but will i regret that later?

hold on to him. look at his split stats every single year. he is a 2nd half pitcher no doubt. however, i've noticed that his fastball is only clocked at 89 and the lower 90s, as opposed to the mid 90s fastball that he threw when he first came off the disabled list. maybe he's hurting again. :-o

He changed his mechanics apparently. I don't buy into that 2nd half bull. I would drop him for Harang right now if you don't have anyone better to drop: he's actually striking people out.

i stashed him before he came off of the DL and just dropped him two weeks ago.

it seems like he throws a straight fast ball without any movement. and he cannot blow it by anyone. he will probably be a better pitcher next season.

i also did not like the way that he shakes his shoulder after every pitch....

I am a HUGE Wade Miller fan... I think he's got potential to be a top-10 pitcher next season. That said, I just dropped him in two leagues for Haren a couple weeks ago. I think this is a case of needing time to regain form after a major injury.
Help please:

I keep hoping as well, but my WHIP and ERA can't take much more of him. I'm going to give him the benifit of the 2nd half at least for a couple starts Post All-Star break.

I dropped him. I have better players out there I could get than a I guy who *might* return to a form where he's a decent 3rd SP in a 12 team fantasy league.

yea well after today's outing By Maddus, Myers Last few games, Hudson's Suck 'O' Meter on the rise along with his DL time and J.Santana seeming to be VERY Human of late, I'm not sure what my real options are.
