I'm glad I took a chance on getting Figgins. Looks like he's going to be around for a while.

Of course it happened, I just picked him up off waivers yesterday. Now I really need to find someone to take his place.

out of the mouth of rex hudler:

"sprained right knee and sprained right ankle, he will be reevaluated tomorrow"

looked worse than that on TV. I'm guessing at least 15 day DL.... probably closer to 4-6weeks

with all these injuries i think both figgins AND davanon have to get decent playing time. Personally i think Davanon offers more of the two. Figgins is JUST speed while davanon is a little less speed but a lot more Power and RBI. Seems like an obvious choice to me(fantasy wise at least) but it appears from the AB's this year that mike scosia disagrees.


This year ab avg hr rbi runs sb

figgins 67 .299 0 4 15 8

Davanon 32 .250 1 4 6 1

*note davanon hit a homer and 4 rbi today(not included)

Last year

figgins 240 .296 0 27 34 13

Davanon 330 .282 12 43 56 17



either one or both are worth a flier in deep leagues in my opinion. Figgins is probably already been gone due to his playing time this year so far. Davanon may still be available so check it out....


Just my opinion,,

15 DL= See you in July :~(

At least it has appeared like its been that way this year with all the DL injuries.

I have Nomar, Preston Wilson and I just picked Dimitri Young off the WW a couple days ago....I really can't afford this injury :~( If this is 4-6 weeks, I may have to cut him :-/

hey! the initial news is good!
"The initial evaluation is very encouraging," Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. "Call it cautious optimism. We're going to have him evaluated tomorrow. "

Guillen is en fuego right now-his last 7 days looks like .480, 7 HR 20 RBI.

lord, let it be day to day!
