Update: Phillie Fazools

After some careful consideration the Fazools made a transaction last night. 

DROP: Geoff Jenkins LF Phi

ADD: Carlos Marmol RP ChC

The Reason:  Geoff was my only Phillie and actually happened to be Mr. Irrelevant in the draft (I had the #1).  I really would have loved to keep him past the first week of fantasy play but I he would have rotted away on my bench and never really cracked the rotation with Alfonso Soriano, Jacoby Ellsbury, and Matt Diaz all in front of him, and all LFs (the league setup is where you HAVE to have a LF, CF, and a RF, then just an OF spot.  Why not play Geoff at the OF spot you say?  I also happen to have Xavier Nady (RF) and Jeremey Hermida (RF – DL15) behind Jeff Francouer(RF) who I would most likely insert before Geoff Jenkins, being that he is the most platooned out of all my outfielders. 


Carlos Marmol setup Kerry Wood for the Cubs before Kerry decided to go and blow it.  He fanned three out of the four batters he faced and had some really good stuff.  I figure you can always have pitching, especially relievers who are solid and will see the field more then once every five days.

    Are we going to have to live through your entire Fantasy baseball season?

    I would rather listen to Merrill Hodge, Mark Schlereth, Howard Eskin, Angelo Cataldi, and Rhea Hughes in a round table discussion on the current liquidity crisis in the financial industry.

    If you need to point out having a player on your squad which may cause bias in a baseball article you are writing then that is okay, but please stop the updates on your moves, team, thoughts on YOUR team, etc. It makes me want to stab myself in the eye with a pencil.

  2. Please go ahead.

    If you feel the need to write an article for your “readers” that discusses dropping the last player taken in a Fantasy baseball draft for a relief pitcher during the first week of the season, it is on you man.

    I would bet you that absolutely no one cares. Write that shit in your diary or at worst on our message board. Please don’t insult our readers by acting like they care about your team, it is rather self-indulgent.
