Not saying I'd start him with confidence next time out, but you've gotta feel good for the guy.


His next start is against the Padres at Petco. ;-D


In that case I'd probably roll the dice, but I think he'd still make me a little nervous considering he couldn't find the zone for the first half an hour of tonight's game.

I'm loving the Reds this year. Got Votto, Phillips, Bruce in my main league Travis Wood didn't look too shabby his first time out either. I think I'll toss him out there @ARZ on Friday.

Big line from Asdrubal as well. I told everybody who would listen in the offseason not to spend on a second/third tier SS and to grab Asdrubal or Castro. Both looking like decent power/speed options in the early going.

Even Dice-K could put zeros up on that Padres lineup.

Tomorrow Youk should get his 3B elig. ;-D ;-D

its like Christmas up in here.

I'm getting tired of Youk's mini-slump here as an owner, but if it means the Red Sox keep losing I think I can accept it.

also Bloomquist gains SS, MI eligibility now as well

not saying hes a savior or anything but its much nicer to use him at MI or SS even then OF/3B. Hes been great so far, and I think he might retain some value even after Drew returns, he might play some 3B/OF

I saw this last night. You know he wanted to say it. For a second I thought maybe he would.
