    Literally the most useless argument I've ever seen on these forums lol.

    You're a self-admitted Celtics fan, which means you hate the Lakers. There's nothing wrong with that; the two fan bases have been hating each others' teams for 60 years. But this is a fantasy forum, and criticizing Ball constantly because of the team he plays for and posting stuff like this doesn't help us here: BBM just released their Summer League fantasy rankings and Ball is #1 overall. It will be shocking if he doesn't win SL MVP. Tatum is an afterthought.

    @dobrienajc #Braves' Freeman has 10 RBIs in past 5 games, 3 homers in past 4 games and .400 average (12-for-30) in 7 games since return from DL. Nice small sample size coming off the DL. No rust. He did slide into first base on a pick off attempt at one point and seemed to be shaking that left hand/wrist a good bit. Hopefully not related to his previous injury.

    Not a single player on the team scored more than 1 run because 8 of the 9 runs came in one inning. The inning Villar was involved... You're try a bit to hard with this. I think only 3 players got on base more than once(Santana, Pina, Thames) because of a small rally in the 5th. Otherwise the remaining 7 inning the Brewers bats were pretty silent.

    It should and it will... if he'd just hit the ball in the air. But Desmond scoffs at this flyball revolution nonsense. He's taking baseball back to the 19th century with his 63.1% groundball rate. No other player with 200+ PA is over 60% this season. I don't really know what to do with that information other than laugh. If he keeps hitting grounders, he'll continue to suck. If he actually gets under a few, Coors will work its magic and he'll be a very helpful fantasy player.

    Congrats, what took you so long? Staying married to bums like this cost people money and championships. You have to ignore their pretty Yahoo ranking and listen to Kenny Rogers, "You've got to know when to hold 'em, know when to fold 'em, know when to walk away, know when to run..." Or Kenny Powers, " I play real sports. Not trying to be the best at exercising. F this guy." Lesson of the day sportsfans.

    The fact that you can even be considered for a suspension after a proven false allegation is a disgrace and the NFL should be embarrassed, if it even had any dignity left.

    exactly. the NFL is not focused on being fair and equitable. The NFL chooses the players and issues the want to make statements on.

    I like this stud muffin a lot, but you're missing the point here. Of course most leagues don't use advanced stats. That's not the point. The point is that it's been well-proven that these stats are far better predictors of future performance than standard stats like ERA and WHIP. Of course there are always exceptions, but over a large sample - all the players you own in all your leagues - ignoring comes at your own peril.

    I think the diff between Julio and AB boils down to this, no one argues AB is the best WR in terms of consistently high production however everyone knows if Julio ever played 100% healthy for every game and the offense fed him he would be an unstoppable monster with an insane ceiling. Julio fans are waiting every season for this to happen; the 300yd 1 td game he had would be more of the norm than the exception. A key diff between julio and AB aside from health and physciality is Big ben finds AB in the end zone whereas Matty Ice doesnt do the same with Julio. I think Ben is just better than ryan at getting his top wr the ball in narrow windows; he makes some sick throws where u wouldnt expect.

    His soft% is down nearly 7% from last season. His BB% is down a bit, but he is hitting the ball with authority. wOBA of .422 and an wRC+ of 161?

    The above is regards Chapman. 99 mph is getting a lot more common than you would think. Major league batters can hit 99 just fine if the location is off. Just throwing fast isn't enough these days. You need control too. He had no real control tonight. He had no focus either. He never checked Mookie on that double steal. He just really looked kind of out of it.

    Every player has a chance to miss games due to injury but not all players have an opportunity to be one of the best at their position. His draft position is about right if not undervalued slightly.

    All misses are not the same. If when a player misses, he misses usually back rim or in-and-out style, then that's an encouraging sign that he's a good shooter (small sample sizes could mean that a normally made shot became a "good" miss). I don't know what the official term is, but it's definitely a thing. For example, when Curry misses, it will almost never be way off. When Roberson shoots it, even if he has all day to setup, he shoots plenty of air balls, bricks, and off the side of the backboard misses. Those misses can tell you a lot. This is not to compare Lonzo to Curry or anything like that - the point is it's encouraging that at least when he is missing, he's not way off - with the exception of those couple of fatigued/forced threes he took that I mentioned earlier. Only thing I could find on this topic was an old article by Charlie Rosen where he said: source: http://www.espn.com/page2/s/rosen/030515.html Again, misses can tell you more about a player's shooting ability than makes because makes go in - whether they are swishes, rim ins, or whatever. But when you miss, you can miss in a wide variety of ways. When you're dealing with short sample sizes like 3 or 4 games in this case, a normally made shot could easily become a "good" miss just like a bad shot could be made. Over time it evens out and we have a clear picture of the player's shooting ability. I think at the very least Lonzo will be able to make open 3s at a good rate just based on what I've seen from him (type of shots he takes, types of misses, distance, etc.). It's why the Rondo comparison makes no sense. The only people making that comparison are the ones who are looking at the numbers, and not watching the game.

    If he would have done 7 IP with 10ks against this lineup, I think his value skyrockets. It didn't. They are that good. He's a good pitcher. He isn't THAT good a pitcher.

    Id like to say more but you guys are hitting it on the head. Just some stability on that oline will go a big way. Both remmers and reiff have generally stayed healthy recently in their careers. A week to prepare, no chemistry or knowledge of the system, played exceptionally well, bad oline made him dump off more but when he had time he delivered accurate strikes all over the field. Took a beating and kept getting up. I was doubtful and skeptical when the vikes first traded for him..now i think they made a good choice. Toughness, poise, team first, has all the arm talent in the world, can make every throw. Then they still get dalvin cook in the 2nd. Growing chemistry with diggs theilen and rudolph. Treadwell apparently making strides. Strong defense to keep games in reach. If given time in the pocket, bradford will surprise alot of people.

    This sounds spoken like someone who has never owned him before. He always has stretches where he looks elite, but then bombs. Usually a top-5 QB during the first half of the year and then plummets dramatically -- happened in 2014, 2015, 2016 but 2017 is going to be different? He's pretty much unstartable against KC and DEN every season. He's a value at his ADP -- especially in leagues that minimize penalties for INTs, but relying on him as your only QB is asking to be disappointed.

    Great start. Hoping he can build some momentum because he seems to be a rhythm pitcher. He got better and sharper as the game went on. It took him about 4 innings to get a feel for his breaking ball but it was a nasty weapon in the final two innings. He should be back to his usual, studly self as he regains confidence in that pitch.

    It is a deep dive, but those looking at Williams as Shanahan's next RB phenom may want to keep an eye on Matt Breida: https://www.ninersnation.com/2017/6/26/15835580/matt-breida-is-our-future-49ers
