      • I'm encouraged by the nice Haren outing today.

        Honestly, I think sometimes these guys try to get too many K's and put those fastballs right where professional hitters love to hit 'em.

        Lincecum, on the other hand -- he's frustrated. Trying to ignore baserunners, but therefore letting them run. He'll come back.

        I just wish our Commie would allow 2 DL spots (one pitcher one player). If I could move just one of my other four DL's, I would feel a lot more comfortable.

    • Beckett sucked so bad to start last year, but then went on an absolute tear. Haren obviously has the same potential...so, I want to hang on to them -- BUUUUUTTTT....

      I should add why having two guys sucking is a problem....

      I have dealt with Ethier, Cruz, and Rollins on the DL. I was lucky enough to have Furcal available when Rollins went down, and then Alex Gonzalez when Furcal went down. I also had Hawpe but he was an easy drop when he went DL. I also have dealt with closers not getting saves (Fuentes, Aardsma, Lidge/Contreras -- at least Brian Wilson has had a few).

      So, I'm VERY thin -- having a hard time fielding a team of bats each day, and VERY hard if I want to pick up a pitcher and drop someone.
