Well there you go, I guess that's why I continue to bash him and yet still not drop him. Paid off tonight. I will officially never lose my patience with this guy again...at least until he string together another 4 or 5 sub par outings. I guess it just comes with the territory.

yeah, but for every game like this he has 2 average to bad ones. not saying he's not worth owning, but he's not Jesus either. i cut him loose for AJ Burnett, so we'll see how that works out

Rookies = streaky.

You have to be able to deal with the ups and downs. Hanley Ramirez's 0-for-27 streak for example.

True, but in a keeper league I don't see how you can let him go.
