Fantasy Errata

-- Lot of big name pitchers are going down. Chien Ming Wang: if he pitches again this year, I'll be surprised. Arizona might have overused both Brandon Webb and Randy Johnson, both of whom have struggled for about a month now. Carlos Zambrano may not be indestructible, after all. Bartolo Colon was likely cut in every league over the last few days.

-- Jeremy Guthrie deserved a win today, he really did. He, Manny Parra, Darrell Rasner, Mike Mussina, and the San Diego pitchers AT HOME top my list of SP fill-ins you should target. Sidney Ponson? Well, in AL-only leagues, at Yankee stadium, if you're desperate.

-- Okay, this new shortstop for Kansas City, Aviles, looks like he's for real. Probably being snatched up as we speak in all leagues.

-- C.J. Wilson, I'm starting to wish I'd dumped you for Brandon Morrow. Dude gets killed in every. Single. Non-save. Situation. It's like clockwork.

-- If the Marlins battle the Rays for the championship, what will we call it? The "Our State Doesn't Care About Baseball" series?

-- Derek Jeter is earning more than $20 million this year. And he still isn't even close to being the most overpaid player. Not while Barry Zito continues to draw a salary every fifth day to give up more walks (!!) than strikeouts.

-- Orlando Cabrera: this is the last day I pimp him, because he won't be a free agent even in shallow leagues after this week.

-- Alex Rodriguez is the 45th ranked player in Yahoo despite missing all that time. This is why you don't trade him for Matt Kemp and Alex Gordon.

Should I drop Heath Bell for Zumaya?

You need to find someone else to drop.
