Re: Thoughts on Brandon Belt??

I'm still hanging on and will until team needs demand I cut him loose. No idea if he'll turn it around, but we know that he does have power. This year, he's taking more walks (15.6% up from 9.6% in '11), getting on base, and hitting doubles (XBH% only slightly down from last year, despite the lack o...

Re: No Reimold again tonight

Probably won't even come to that. Buck just said he's optimistic Reimold can avoid the DL. I know how that always ends. May as well plan on Reimold being out the next month.

Re: Reynolds dropped

Depending on your league set-up, I'd drop Belt or Niese for him. I've owned Belt the last 2 years and it's getting hard to see what how this will turn out well anytime soon. Mark Reynolds is flawed, sure, but it's starting to look like Belt is just Reynolds with half the power and no 3B eligibility....

I'm rolling with him too, with my eyes closed.

I like Bourjos, but I think I'd rather have Coghlan.

Re: Kila just sac bunted Betemit over

I wonder if the Royals will call up Clint Robinson if they feel the need to bring someone up. What's the point of having a really old guy mashing in AAA if you can't use him as an excuse to delay service time on your young stud and try convince people you aren't just being cheap?

Yep, drop an Izturis. I never really hesitate to drop an Izturis.

Re: Pitching Question

For now, yes, just keep starting them all as you normally would. Def. don't cut anyone (except for Beachy, if there's someone on the wire you like). I'd bench Beachy and Volquez until they turn it around. It would be great to pull off a 2 for 1 pitching trade, but unless you are playing with idiots,...

Re: Drop Travis Snider for Jon Herrera?

I wouldn't.

Herrera will either be useless in a couple of weeks or he could go on to give you 25 SBs without hurting your AVG. That makes his upside Ryan Theriot.

Snider could turn in a 25-15 season.

Snider has the more guaranteed playing time and more upside.

Re: Pitching is horrible -- need advice! HELP!!!

Yeah, I pretty much agree with Larkfest. You'll get much better and I certainly wouldn't trade away 2 closers. Drop Hughes and grab Kuroda immediately (heck, Kuroda is the ace of my garbage pitching staff, no idea how he's available in a 12-teamer). I like Shields, but I'm not totally sure I'd drop ...
