    It was a tag up play on a medium distance fly ball. Looked like the third base coach told him to hold and he took off like a maniac anyways. Was out by 8 feet.

    So annoying. Guy hasn’t had an RBI in forever. The yahoo app on my phone won’t even let me scroll to the last game he’s got an RBI

    If anyone watched the Cardinal's game on 7/4, the broadcasters did a pretty interesting analysis of Ozuna's swing. It looks as though that the main element that's changed is his leg kick. He always had a little "lift and drag" motion with his lead leg, though this year he's added a pretty substantial leg kick to go along with this previous motion. I think this is making it harder for him to time his swings, which might be causing his issues. I think he'll figure it all out personally, so if you can buy low on this guy definitely go for it.

    Seriously, if Kendall Wright can get over 90 targets on last year's team then it should be easy for AR to get over 100 this year.

    “If Harper can’t get his team to .500.” Great point. Is Trout REALLY that great? I mean, he can’t even lead his team into the playoffs!

    I watched the three games when Boston came to town and I was NOT impressed with their manager. He just let Tanner Roark stay out there and get humiliated for inning after inning in the hot, humid sun. Way to destroy any confidence he had left there. Also when Fedde looked injured in the second inning of his game -- and he indeed came out -- he didn't come out with the trainer like most managers do showing concern for his player. He waited until the trainer was out there for well over a minute or two until he bothered to slowly saunter out to the mound. The Red Sox announcers were commenting on his seeming lack of concern and said they couldn't remember seeing that in a manager before. He then called in this guy named Grace who had done yeoman's duty already just the night before and that surprised me. He made some other questionable decisions too I can't remember now too. Just know from the little I've seen I'm not a fan of this guy. ESPN said the Nats held a closed door "players only" meeting right after the Red Sox swept them too. I guess the players had to do it since the manager doesn't seem too much in charge there. Yeah I know players meetings equal taking responsibility yadda yadda and they have been slumping but I don't think they would be this bad with better leadership from the top. First Dusty and now this guy. Front office doesn't know who to hire to manage their team it seems. This generation of Nats players are missing their opportunity and a large part of it is not on them. And the inability to coach Harper alone from being the biggest yo-yo player in the game as in super great to sucks swings all the time and to aim at making him more consistent is another negative against the Nats. I can't prove it is their coaching but if in the years to come after he leaves the Nats and he becomes what his potential says he should be all the time and not every other year, I'm going to give partial credit to his new coaches.

    A month of .260-12-4-19-3 is really good...yes. Over a six-month season, that projects to .260-72-24-114-18. I'm not arguing that Polanco is that type of hitter...just saying it shows that his September is 2017 was really good.

    From Rotowire: Paddack was moved up to Double-A San Antonio on Thursday, Dennis Lin of The Athletic reports. Spin: Paddack cruised through the High-A level, posting a 2.24 ERA and 0.90 WHIP over 10 starts with Lake Elsinore. In just 52.1 innings, he racked up a remarkable 83:4 K:BB after missing the entire 2017 season due to Tommy John surgery he underwent in August of 2016. Look for him to remain with San Antonio for the rest of this season.

    Drafting Guice before or after.... McKinnon? Mixon? Howard? Collins? Miller? Ajayi? Penny? Michel? I think the 240 carries + 30 recs is a fair estimate. I could see 260+ if the stars align. For context, here are the attempts for guys who started 16 games last year: - Bell 321 - McCoy 287 - Gordon 284 - Gurley 279 - Howard 276 - Hunt 272 - Gore 261 - Hyde 240 250 carries is guaranteed 1,000 yards rushing. If YPC is 4.3, he's at 1,100 yards rushing. I don't think 270 carries is out of the question just looking at Hunt and Howard volume up there, and remembering how misused both were. Can Guice add 250 receiving? 10 total TDs? Why the hell not? If so, he's pushing for 200 standard points which is low end RB1. So back to the original question. I'm probably taking Guice over Howard late in the 2nd round of a standard league. Perine and Kelly are garbage. Thompson may not be healthy. If the Skins OL stays healthy, Guice will break 4.3 YPC. Anyone who has scouted college running backs knows how good this guy is.

    I am. If Freeman plays, he historically knocks around Chacin as does half the lineup. Chacin is pretty garbage so I am betting a cool 5-2 win for Atlanta unless Fried implodes; I dont think he will, he is trending in the right direction Jhoulys Chacin (mil) - throws R vs. atl - 8:10 PM EDT - Miller Park RotoGuru ESPN MLB Yahoo RotoBaller BB-Ref FanGraphs BATTER NP PA AB H 2B 3B HR R RBI BB SO SB CS AVG OBP SLG OPS wOBA ISO other site links Freddie Freeman L 69 14 11 5 1 0 2 4 2 3 3 0 0 .455 .571 1.091 1.662 .654 .636 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Tyler Flowers R 26 6 5 4 0 0 0 2 0 1 0 0 0 .800 .833 .800 1.633 .717 .000 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Nick Markakis L 33 9 7 4 2 0 0 1 2 2 0 0 0 .571 .667 .857 1.524 .633 .286 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Ryan Flaherty L 10 3 3 1 1 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 .333 .333 .667 1.000 .417 .333 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Johan Camargo S 9 3 3 1 1 0 0 0 2 0 0 0 0 .333 .333 .667 1.000 .417 .333 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Ender Inciarte L 18 6 5 1 0 0 0 1 0 1 0 0 0 .200 .333 .200 .533 .267 .000 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Dansby Swanson R 22 6 6 0 0 0 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 .000 .000 .000 .000 .000 .000 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Kurt Suzuki R 7 2 2 0 0 0 0 1 0 0 0 0 0 .000 .000 .000 .000 .000 .000 | RotoGuru | ESPN | MLB | Yahoo | RotoBaller |BB-Ref | FanGraphs | Active totals for Atlanta Braves: 194 49 42 16 5 0 2 9 6 7 4 0 0 .381 .469 .643 1.112 .476 .262

    I’ve seen how this one ends. You’re leaving out the part of the story where, after that bold move, you then traded Zeke for Devante Parker and went ahead and on draft day you boned your friend instead of his hot gf on a hunch. Because you’d self aggrandizing preseason talk doesn’t axually materialize into real results and then you disappear from this forum like the anti-Bobby Fischer of fantasy football.

    He didn't break out, his season was a fluke. Yes he's an athletic freak and a raw talent, with plenty of 'potential'. As predicted by anyone with a semblance of logic, Bortles crashed down to earth in spectacular fashion the following year. AR15 did NOT repeat 14 TDs, yet alone 16. JAX didn't get to pile on stats at record rates in garbage time, AR didn't repeat the 3rd best 'deep threat' season ever, Allen Hurns and M.Lee actually played decently and for more than 5 games, JAX defense actually improved, etc etc etc. A.Robs 'breakout' season, was the perfect storm of flukes, that no one should have expected to repeat. He played all 16 games, had only 1 less target than his 'breakout' year, and only 7 fewer catches.

    And banished the only game plan (centering the offense around Ajayi) that actually has won him games with MIA. A refresher: 2016: 1-4 without featuring Ajayi, 9-2 featuring him. 2017: 4-3 featuring Ajayi, 2-7 after trading him away for peanuts. Odds are that Miami is really bad this year, which should favor the pass catchers.

    Its not about winning arguments. Not gonna say the WS had no effect on his mental makeup but to say he wouldn’t sign with them is simply incorrect. The Dodgers chose not to match the Cubs’ offer. Also, His 2017 total was 209 strikeouts, that’s elite starting pitching as far as I’m concerned for fantasy purposes. Sure, wasn’t at Cy Young form and may not ever be at that level again. Doesn’t mean he can’t be a steady top 20-30 pitcher.

Baker Mayfield does not see the field Dallas Cowboys: Michael Gallup leads all Cowboys WRs in fantasy points and finishes as a WR2 Denver Broncos: Royce Freeman has over 1,000 yards rushing and at least 8 TDs Detroit Lions: Luke Willson emerges as a TE1 in fantasy Green Bay Packers: Geronimo Allison emerges as the No. 2 behind Adams. Jimmy Graham scores fewer than 8 TDs. Houston Texans: Watson fails to finish the season once again and is labeled the next RG3 Indianapolis Colts: Jack Doyle finishes as a TE1 despite the presence of Eric Enron Jacksonville Jaguars: DJ Chark beats out Moncrief, Westbrook, Lee, and Cole as the best fantasy WR on the Jags Kansas City Chiefs: Patrick Mahomes leads the AFC in rushing yards and TDs by a QB Miami Dolphins: Frank Gore leads the team in rushing yards and touchdowns Minnesota Vikings: Stefon Diggs scores more fantasy points than Adam Thielen New England Patriots: Tom Brady wins league MVP...again.

    It's going to be very crowded in Washington after his return. Assuming Harper and Soto play nearly every day, and best case scenario that Murphy can play 2B consistently (no sure thing and he could steal ABs at 1B), you would still have four players for two spots (the OF spot that Harper and Soto don't take and 1B): Eaton, Taylor, Adams and Zim. And since Zim hits RH, he may find himself strictly playing against LH.

    For all Yahoo platform users AND those thinking about playing fantasy sports on Yahoo here is what I was talking about regards Oath's privacy policy. I think this is very relevant in this thread since it effects current and future fantasy baseball platform choices: https://www.cnet.com/news/yahoo-aol-oath-privacy-policy-verizon-emails-messages/ At a time where they say Google has backed away some on what it does with your GMail, we have Oath going the other direction and even into your financials as well.

    Same here. Not worried but it’s something I’ve been making more of. His last 3 starts were against the cubs twice and the Rockies once which aren’t easy lineups. Neither is his next start at LAA. We’ll see how he does but I’m still starting him. Just not with as much confidence as I had a few weeks ago.

    I just cant imagine Lebron saying get me Rondo, Mcgee, and Stephenson. Maybe he did, I'm going to not believe that until I hear otherwise. I agree, as the roster sits now it seems like a wasted year of Lebron if we are judging it by pursuit of a championship. That being said, I don't see where he could have signed that had a max spot available that would put him at a good chance to win one. Unless he took less money to go somewhere else. The Warriors are too good, it doesn't matter where he signed.

    I'm in the same boat in one keeper league. Going back and forth on Evans. But I have decided, Winston or Fitzmagic I'm sticking with Evans as a keeper. Hes still very young (24) and can beast. He still gets targets and is a red zone threat. We saw what a bad year looks like (2017) and I expect him to improve on those numbers. I do think he can improve on the 5Tds from last year.

    I don’t think there’s that many Nimmo apologists, at least not to the extent that you stir things up with your over the top negativity in this thread. Your daily “drop this bum” posts are only useful in the most shallow of all leagues, and that’s being generous.

    I 100% agree with that. But his value in a full on dynasty is much much different than a keeper league where his price (or draft round) escalates each year, and where he likely is going to burn a DL slot for at least one full season. He could end up becoming very costly before he's ever ready to pitch again. For example he was drafted in the 2nd rd and the 4th rd of my two snake keepers, and I imagine he went well before his ADP in most other keeper leagues as well. Do people really want to give up that early of a pick to keep him when hes missing a year? And then burn an even earlier pick when hes ready to pitch again? Those are tough questions. In no-cost dynasty you can just stash him under the tree indefinitely then unwrap him whenever Christmas comes.
