He's old...and he's out of drugs. Couple weeks from now he's likely to be well below the Mendoza Line.

Ottavino wasn't the original starter to begin with...so why would he have job security? Axford is a veteran closer, if he performs why wouldn't they just leave him in the job even if Ottavino comes back?

Bryant's HR will come soon enough. I have watched every Cub game this season and Bryant has flied out very deep a lot with the wind blowing in. Once the winds start blowing out at Wrigley the HR will come too...plus he hits the ball very well to the opposite field with power. I've seen at least 3 balls that would be opposite field HR but the wind held them in the park. I think he'll be good for 20-25HR.

Both of them are bench material and shouldn't be starting. Who do you need more for your bench, that's who you go with. You can find both of them on a lot of waiver wires - especially Pearce. He's been awful so far.

I would rather have Trumbo....if he's healthy he's a very good bet to reach 30+HR 90+RBI 60+R. Zimmerman has only done that 1 time in his 11 years. Trumbo has done it twice in his 4 years plus he had another year with 29HR and 87 RBI. He looks good this year. He certainly won't continue to have a .325BA - but he is showing a lot more plate discipline this year.

Well I figured it was worth stashing Alex on the bench because eventually Mattingly would have to start him either because Rollins, Uribe, or Crawford were severely under performing offensively or somebody would get hurt. I love Rodon but since he hasn't started yet he wasn't doing anything for my team...I figure I got nothing to lose and a lot to gain by going with Alex.

The under 20 starts is looking very probable all of a sudden. Tanaka ison the DL - again.

I bit the bullet and dropped Carlos Rodon and grabbed Alex...and in another league I dropped Addison Russell for Alex.

Wouldn't it be ironic that in this effort to "keep the peace" a huge fight breaks out between the O's and the Sox and there's nobody there to see it?
