Looks like Gully picked Springer up for us, too. Castellanos seems to be catching fire, he might be a good pick until he cools off. Not for us, because we don't have the room, but I'd take a shot at him if we had a spot.
I drafted both of them at the start of the season.
In the interest of keeping our team in the race, Springer is close to getting the heave-ho.
I worry that, with Springer this season, I may have repeated a thing I did with Domonic Brown last season: picked him up at the ass-end of a power surge that he may not equal any time soon. Brown didn't completely flatten out, but he didn't subsequently live up to the image that I inferred from his surge in May of 2013. And Springer has an additional problem, in that it's easier to pitch around him, in the Astros' lineup, than with Brown in the Phillies' lineup (malfunctioning as it currently may be.)
I love the whole fantasy baseball thing. Partnering with Roque in this mutual undertaking has been great fun, for me. While I realize that leagues exist wherein some cash can be won, I think that I find a more satisfying result from being my friend's back-pocket consigliere.
Not sure I agree with Gully communicating to his team through the media, but apparently message received. Springer homered tonight.
