Sure, I like both of them for your team.
Felt like I had to take Nady there to shore up avg. Have a bunch of arms q'd up but 3 of them just got swiped. Cain (bite me Steve) Nolasco and Sheets. I chose Wainwright and now have to go for either Danks or Floyd.
Too bad you didn't get Nolasco and Wainwright then you would've already righted the ship. Though Wainwright is a good start.

If you want me to look at your team, post the team. Don't post a link to another site where the team is.
Have you given me all the info I need to judge your team? The number of teams in the league is a good start for the big overall questions.
Is your league H2H? Roto?
I don't know who's on your waivers. Don't just ask me who you should pick up. Give me names to choose from.
If you only have one team, post your team in your signature with the league parameters.
I don't know every single matchup for next week, so if you want me to choose a player for the following week and you think the matchups are important, tell me who they're facing.
There's more than one player with the same last name? Then spell out who you're talking about.
Thanks!

He who lives by the scoop...

No, really. I'm just happy he's going to stay within the Razzball family.

There's a possibility that Lowe might not get back to me. I've consulted my 'map' and it's pointing me at guys like Weaver, Harang and...... Blanton(!) as being solid in the W column.

My preference is probably Weaver (playing on a good team in a great rotation, not a total hitter's park), but the map really likes Blanton for wins and is neutral (if 0.0 is indeed neutral) on the other categories.

What's your take?

EDIT: Not so fast! Hippo SCOOPED by the guy right in front of him. It's a jungle out there.

"The road is long
With many a winding turn
That leads us to who knows where
Who knows when..."

On it drags. About a quarter of the way through the 16th. Hippo and I have been scooped right in our faces on our last two SP picks - Hippo on Vasquez (thinking he was scooping me) and me on Derek Lowe. Other things of note - I have 5 Matts on my team. Does this mean this team would get walked on by everyone else in the league?

Any/all comments welcome.

Ha!

1) I forget when I said you need some Wins or a chance for some Wins, but did you get Chris Young after that? He's on the Padres. Well, you can't exactly predict Wins anyway, so he's fine.

2) Gordon!

3) I'm really liking your team in this draft thus far. Ibanez was a good addition. Maybe someone else who's a solid producer?

re: Hippo's team -- I like the hitting, obviously, but Danks and Floyd? Kinda eh.

Winn, Hideki then Mora, in that order. Though I'm not particularly thrilled with those guys.

Me neither. They're all I could see on the phone! Will take a proper look.
And yes Young did come afterwards. You like Weaver?

grey :
this thread is why you should draft a team in the 2nd Razzball Slow Mock Draft .
the crowd is clamouring for you to participate .

(you do know that we talk about you , behind your back , when you're not around !? ..... one guy has been referring to you as "that mustachioed fella")
