  1. Better choice: Russell Martin or ianetta as a season-long option?

  2. ha i have the same dilemma of martin or ianetta, and i don’t really know which one is the better option so i’m hanging on to both for the time being.

  3. I am a Yankees fan so this might be bias, but I have been watching his at bats and Martin looks like he is in for a bouceback season

  4. I’m looking at his stats and Burnett has never really posted a high K/9 until last year (this includes minors and majors). Based on this info one could surmise that Storen is still the better long term hold even for a redraft league as Burnett seems ripe for regression.

    Thoughts?

  5. Martin’s probably the safer floor; Ianetta the higher upside. I guess it depends on where you put your team. If you definitely need a HR at catcher, I’d go Ianetta.

  6. I watched Thursday and Sunday’s games and didn’t notice anything special about his ABs. But I didn’t notice anything terrible about them either, which is probably a step up from the last two years.

  7. Thoughts about Jordan Walden after Rodney’s implosion?

  8. If you’re the Nationals why not try Sean Burnett as a Starter? If he has shown an ability to get right handed hitters out and his changeup is already a plus pitch then what’s the downside? Teach him a slider and/or curveball and throw him into the back of the rotation and see what happens. Would he really be any worse an option than John Lannan or Jason Marquis?

  9. Picked up Walden this morning…

    I’m kind of stuck without bench-space for a few days while I try and wait out some more information on the Braves and Rays closer situations. I don’t particularly think I’ll be getting any definite information anytime soon, but I’d like to drop Venters/Farnsworth in favor of some other guys who will possibly get more saves asap.

    Walden was a definite pickup for me, but I wish I had room for Jepsen as well.

    Tough going in the first few weeks for those of us who went closer-light during our auctions.

  10. Don’t forget about Posada. He’s still catcher-eligible (in Yahoo at least) and DHing may give him a big advantage in PAs over other catchers.

  11. sure. just teach him a curveball. cant be too hard. im pretty sure if a guy is in the majors and doesnt have a curveball, someone somewhere has tried to teach it to him. some guys just cant throw curves or sliders for whatever reason (arm slot, release point, mental) its not as easy as teach him a curve ball and hes an ace.

  12. in a league with holds and having weeks as my 2b and posada and ortiz as my utilities does a gordon beckham for soriano trade make sense?

  13. Not saying he would be an Ace, but what’s the difference between Sean Burnett right now and CJ Wilson 2 years ago???
