I watched him pitch against the Astros last night and I mkust say he is quite good. My question is about what capacity he will pitch. Rueter, Shmidt, Moss, Ainsworth and ? Is Foppert going to replace whoever the 5th starter is?

The fifth is Ryan Jenson, and is not exactly a star, so Foppert could win this spot, no doubt. But he won't have much time. If he doesn't pitch well in his small window, Jenson will be back and Foppert will hit the pen

Jensen is crap, wont ever be more then a 5th guy. I cant put a time frame on it, but i will go on record and say Foppert will be SF ace soon, and a cy candidate down the line.

I think Foppert will win the role very soon, and he will be very good.
I know the future!!!!!!!

According to today's Contra Costa Times, even though Jensen is eligible to come off the DL on the 25th, he will be making a rehab start in Fresno that day, so Foppert will get the start in Philadelphia on the 26th.

If he does well, there's a decent chance he will stay in the rotation. At worst, he will be put in long relief, and the second Jensen falters (which will be sooner rather than later) Foppert will take his spot.

On a side note, does anyone know what the policy is in the Yahoo leagues for adding call-ups? Will they do it once Jensen comes off the DL and Foppert remains? Or do they have certain intervals where they add all the new players at once? And once Foppert becomes available, will he be on waivers, or be a free agent? This is my first time doing the Yahoo leagues. Thanks.

Would you take him over Ainsworth, Armas Jr., Lohse and other more established players?

But he's on waivers and midnight Saturday is pretty far away when you're fifth out of ten. :-o

tony armas is pitching really well. i saw him pitch live, last thursday, and he smashed the cubs... 7 IP, 0 ER, 11K. he had a nearly similar performance in puerto rico, just with like 2 or 3K.

i think he's finally figured something out this season. his K/BB ratio is currently consistent with his spring, where his era was 1.something... so the signs are saying, hey, 2003 is finally the year when tony armas figures it out and stops being an inconsistent ~4.2 ERA-ish pitcher.

or so i hope, as i've got him on 3/3 fantasy squads. =)
