Adam Madison, Special to ESPN.com and their Fantasy Baseball writer, agrees with you in today's report:

"It should go without saying that you don't want anything to do with Livan Hernandez, but his ownership has increased 10 percent in the past week, so maybe not. Hernandez's ERA and WHIP are still sterling, but he's struck out just 10 batters in 31 innings. He has the lowest batting average on balls in play in the league at .177 and isn't limiting his fly balls nor inducing ground balls particularly well.
In short, it's a fluke, and if you pick him up hoping to milk him for all he's worth, the egg on your face will be entirely of your own doing. NL-only leagues don't have much of a choice but to throw him out there, but mixed leagues of any size should stay far away."

On the other hand, the Braves SUCK this year! :tomatoes:


His line drive % has dropped from around 25 to around 14. Which probably does more to explain his success than any other single stat.
