Lost some guys this past week as their availability rates shrunk taking them out of consideration for Trolling. The causalities include:
Max Scherzer – knew that wouldn’t last long and 15 Ks will accelerate the process.
Ervin Santana – another one I knew wouldn’t last and a strong 2-start week sopped up his remaining availability.
Jeff Samardzija – he has really transformed himself this season as he has K’d just fewer than 6 twice in his 8 starts.
Chris Capuano – took his first loss in San Diego last week, but that hasn’t stopped him from being on 100% of ESPN league rosters.
Bud Norris – surprised and bummed about this one as he usually floats under the radar because of the Astros, but impossible to ignore his three win stretch during which he has a 0.47 ERA in 19 innings.
