  1. Past hour
  2. Why not.. So far with Seattle in 26 innings he has 26 Ks 3.42 ERA and 0.987 WHIP. Anything to see here for those desperate in deeper leagues for the 32 year old?
  3. Well, even bad pitchers have games or stretches where they look good, don't they? I mean Ivan Nova, who has probably been the worst pitcher in the MLB this year, had a great game vs Houston earlier this game and beat Gerrit Cole. We're 15 starts into the year, and Nola has the 4th worst WHIP among all pitchers in baseball with enough innings to qualify. There's not really any way to put a positive spin on things at this point. Yes, maybe, he hasn't sucked quite as bad since April 15th as he did his first 4 starts, but he's still been bad since then. I did think that there was a time at the end of May where it looked like Nola might be finally coming out of it. I pretty much lost all hope for Nola after that disaster in San Diego in what should have been a very favorable matchup.
  4. Am I wrong in thinking modern sliders, two seamers, and cutters would have resulted in him changing his stance ASAP?
  5. Anybody picking up shares in deeper leagues? Officially back from the wrist injury.
  6. Workman is just as bad. You can't close when you keep walking everyone.
  7. He is coming back from injury. Combine that with his resume and I imagine it would take a couple more blown saves for him to removed from the role.
  8. surprised there's not more st louis chatter - I can't find an explanation for today's usage. Analytics? bullpen by committee? Fireman role? Changing of the guard?
  9. I think wearing a shirt that says "fantasy football" anything is by definition joke material. As for the Viking WRs, flip a coin. Both should see enough touches and are good enough to be good WR2s with upside for more. I don't generally care for flip-a-coin WR situations, but if I must, I'll deal with this one. I think Cousins has a good chance to have the kind of season people expected last year.
  10. Story? I could see the rest. Tatis is the most amazing dude to watch run the bases and his def at SS is highlight reel everyday. Tatis scores from 2nd on a ground out to the pitcher the other day. That’s the kind of thing I’m talking about. Out of the box he’s always thinking 3b also don’t know how you can say flat out better. Tatis is pacing and 8 war season as a 20 yr old
  11. How long does everyone think wades leash is in the mile high city?
  12. It should be known that he had over a THIRD of the teams receiving TD's himself! That's how you manipulate stats.
  13. Here we can discuss Statcast data and stats such as expected stats, exit velocity, barrels, etc. To start off some discussion: —How often does everyone use/rely upon Statcast data such as xwOBA? Last year I would occasionally check the xwOBA leaderboards and always saw Carpenter among the league leaders. It wasn’t until his scorching hot breakout that I really started to believe in this stat because it legitimately predicted him breaking out of his slump in a tremendous way. Another good find last year was Ross Stripling who was among the leaders in xwOBA for pitchers. Wouldn’t have added him and had a good stretch of starts from him without xwOBA. I rely upon this stat pretty heavily now. —Another question maybe someone could help clarify... does xwOBA penalize players in hitter friendly parks? I’m looking at Rockies hitters and pretty much every regular starter is playing well above their xwOBA. Including guys like Blackmon, Arendado, and Story who’s xwOBA are not very impressive. It seems skewed towards Rockies players. Can’t seem to find anything that states the stat factors in park adjustments or anything of the sort. Anyone able to clarify or guess why this is? (hopefully this topic isn’t discussed elsewhere I couldn’t find anything in the search or index forum)
  14. Would it be the craziest of ideas to draft both understanding you'll likely discard the wrong one? Like dying said above, having an Arian's back is pretty cool.
  15. I’m really interested and keen email me at
  16. If that’s the case, I’d rather not own him then. If I’m going to carry a SP, I want to know I can count him for more than 100-110 innings, which is essentially what Marquez will give at home. Makes him a streamer, not a roster-worthy pitcher.
  17. I still would take Bogaerts in a dynasty, stay put!
  18. That’s a good way to put it... “lean”. He’s got wiry strength and is tall enough to get good leverage. Most guys who’ve put up huge MiLB SB’s fit the shorter/skinny profile and routinely bring one category to the table. Hamilton, Dyson, M. Smith, Gordon, Etc... you know what your going to get, SB’s. You pay a premium for their rarity, and pray they don’t kill you in other categories, let alone not hit enough to stay atop, or even in the lineup daily. I’m a believer, I’ve watched a ton of his AB’s, and I feel if things break right, we’re talking Turner/Mondesi/Merifield “light” kinda player. A guy who at years end puts up very respectable counting stats, and contends annually for the SB crown. He’s no Punch and Judy slapper, he hits the ball hard!
