What concerns me the most about Joba is his eroding stuff. His FB velocity is declining (could be somewhat attributable to him being in the rotation) as his slider. In addition, his slider lost vertical movement. It could be mechanical but I think he is in for a long season of up and down.

Love him in the set-up role. The bid's out of date, of course, but I'd bid comfortably up to $5 in 4x4, and I probably won't get him.

As Richard Gere is talking to Joba, Phil Hughes walked past. Gere turned from Joba and said to Hughes, "Hey, congratulations." AWK-ward [To say the least]

I was definitely looking at the 4x4 bid, since the ADL is a 4x4 league.

I've left him at a buck (I think the Amaros were looking at Mike's 4x4 bid) only because it still wasn't official that Hughes had won the fifth-starter competition when we sent Peter our bids. Now that Joba's job is officially that of a middle reliever, he has no place in a 5x5 mixed league.

Ironically, he's got a better chance of turning a profit there. For sure he's not going to cost as much; good chance that he'll end up earning more than he would have as a starter.

I dropped him to a buck this week in the software update, based on role, and halved his projected innings. He could earn more than a buck, and I might pay $3 or $4 in the right situation. But probably not. And I'm certainly not budgeting it for a flaky hurler setting up Mr. Dependable.

So the Yanks finally figured out what was obvious to any sentient Martian, that Joba is too fragile to be a starter, and is best served as Mariano's setup man and heir apparent.

Maybe Cashman is dumber than he looks.

Nine bucks ought to get him; in the Yank-friendly ADL, where Peter, Alex and I play, it will be more like Alex's price of $14. Not that I'll be paying it.

Peter makes it clear that he's not budging his bid one cent in the latest update of our prices, but what about Mike? Has he come down a tick or two?

One way to find out. Two ways, actually. Both versions of Patton $ Online 2010 -- the Cadillac (software) and the Chevvy (text and Excel files) -- were posted last night at AskRotoman.com.
