If anybody is looking to trade, I'm looking for some offensive players, and maybe a starting pitcher.

Jesus, dude your whole team is on the DL...

Lived in the Bay Area for 10 years. Zito is WAY overrated. One Brady Anderson-esque 27 wins...

Now if you're talking Rich Harden (provided he doesn't stay hurt)...or Mulder before he got hurt...

Even Hudson except for last year.

And Jason Schmidt. Think his arm may be shot though, which is why Sabean let him go to the hated Dodgers. A Trojan horse as it were...

BIG mistake by yours truly. Please view league notes...

Now you know how I felt last year. I might have finished top 5 in my league had I not accidentally waivered Jose Reyes three weeks into the season.

If you get him back... no harm done... if you don't - take it like a man, learn your lesson, and pay attention.

Just 3 of them! I'll probably be dropping johnson though, he's getting old, and had back surgery. That can't be too healthy for the rockets release. I'm still borderline with weaver, I've got a gut feeling that he'll fluke this year after last years amazing rookie start, but I'm no scout, so we'll see what happens. I watched him play the a-league in Rancho Cucamonga last week, and he looked like he was doing alright, so he's with me for now.

can someone please explain to me where the strike zone is?

i thought it was from the knees (not sure what part of the knees) to the chest (not sure what part of the chest.)

yesterday i saw a graphic on espn showing some guy that always swings at pitches outside of the strike zone. the graphic they used to represent the strike zone went almost all the way down to the ground.

Officially, from the top of the knees to the armpits and from one side of the plate to the other, at the front of the plate. Unoffically, it's usually a lot lower--bottom of the knees or below to just above the belt. Biggest complaints about umpiring are usually too wide/too narrow, other than inconsistency. That's the worst. Tom

Oh, snap. At least I'm middle of the pack with Ks. If we had a civilized stat like OBP instead of the great unwashed AVG, my strikezone judgement might actually put me ahead of Slim.

You guys use AVG instead of OBP or OPS? That's just a wee bit old-school, no?

Its the most universal standard by which all offensive players are judged. Until that changes, its just easier for everyone involved.
