Looks like I picked the right week to play conservative. I think your little message to STUBS was taken to heart and he's adding/dropping starters like they're bad habits while I'm sitting back and letting my closers do their job.

However...my starters are kicking behind. But since I wouldn't be able to compete with Wins/Ks...I don't mind giving up 2 cats to clinch my playoff spot.

Looks like I'm playing with my keepers on the DL for the most part for the rest of the season. Choo's back on the DL to go along with Cruz and Rasmus. And Harper is just chillen on my bench.

WTF. I say to myself when Tex comes up to the plate for Aceves to hit him because STUBS has him and I don't want him to get an RBI.

I WASN'T SERIOUS!!!

Only if you have the guy you start not turn in a bad outing. I tried that against him and failed with Hellickson laying an egg.

I didn't even plan on it this week but it just came to me. But the difference here is that my opponent has closers. So I gotta at least keep my closers in.

And I'm PISSED that Betancourt was given the closers role for the time being. Now I have to keep BOTH him and Street on my team. I could drop one for a needed starter for the playoff run but I can't drop them.

I told you when you did it. BAD MOVE when you have alot more starters better.

But it was against OAKLAND. Hard to pass one of those up.

And it's easier to do that formula in the playoffs because all you're worried about is that ONE matchup. In the regular season, as we see now, every category is important.

As long as you keep 2169 in check...that's the matchup.

I guess I should say the same about STUBS. I'm not exactly holding my own.
