  1. Hunter Greene CIN-SP/SS

    Is it common for guys with 16 career starts in ClassA ball to play in the Futures Game?
  2. Corey Seager 2018 Outlook

    What format would not have a guy who's got 25 games in at SS before the ASB not be eligible at SS next year? Format for my main league is masochistic with 15 games needed to gain eligibility & Baez has already locked in at 2B & SS for 2019 with 3B eligibility a near certainty as he already has 10 games in there as well. I just wish they'd have opted for the surgery over the winter instead of waiting like they did....forces those of us in keeper/dynasty leagues to roster a place holder or, in my CSB case, move Baez off 2B to fill SS, thus creating a hole at 2B. I have no doubt he'll come back and be a top 3, top 5 SS when he does get back to 100% & knocks all the rust off.

    Yea, if I had more roster flexibility, he'd be a streamer for me but injuries and incompetence have me starting him more weeks than not whether i like it or not....the talent & stuff are there...he just needs to put it all together.

    Thanks Nick, needed that.
  5. Raimel Tapia - OF COL

    Right...that's me and my love-hate relationship with dynasty league fantasyball....I say this but then next rookie draft we do, my usual best-player-available strategy will have me picking a COL prospect.
  6. Raimel Tapia - OF COL

    The way COL has handled Tapia's development/progression makes me want to never have another Rockies prospect ever again. I honestly thought they had a trade arranged or something when they called him up....I thought for sure CarGo or Parra was leaving Colorado....why else would they call Tapia up just to sit like they did last year? It makes no sense. But no, there's no trade. It's just COL being COL. Like I said, it will have to be a special talent for me to ever take on a Rockies prospect in my dynasty league ever again.

    CBS nugget says the return date to TOR is August 5 and that he'll likely get a few appearances in low-leverage situations right away but manager has already said he's their closer when they feel he's fully back & stretched out to game level. They refer to 8/5 as a firm return date. EDIT: Expanded the nugget to say he will assume closer duties immediately upon return to TOR on 8/5.
  8. Jake Lamb 2018 Outlook

    It'd be nice if he put up a good line against a tough LHP so Lovullo will keep giving him ABs against them....and not 7th in the order. I remember looking it up a couple years ago & Jake's numbers vs LHP weren't all that bad in college and first year or two in minors. I know MLB is a whole 'nother monster but you'd think he'd adjust eventually & at least be adequate enough not to be sat against them more often than not. It just hasn't worked out that way yet.
  9. John Lamb 2018 Outlook

    I actually had John Lamb a couple years ago when a rash of injuries took apart my pitching staff...think he was still with the Reds at the time & hair was still relatively normal. He had good stuff & put up a couple decent games for me but then he got hurt too, I had to drop & I didn't hear his name again till 2-3 weeks ago when he popped up again. Anyway, he's always had the stuff...I've always thought he was like Morrow was back in the day...solid/fantasy usable when pitching but simply could not stay healthy.
  10. Luis Urias - 2B SD

    Seems to have plateaued a bit but has hit in 9 of his 10 & 15 of last 17 w/ several multi-hit games mixed in. The slump he went through for much of May & first week or so in June really dumped his season numbers. He's off to a solid start here in July: 8 games, 32 AB, .344 BA/.475 OBP/.469 SLG/.944 OPS....his K:BB ratio is still stellar given his age & league he plays in. So far in 2018, he's got 58 games played at 2B, 9 games at 3B and 17 games at SS so it could be SD is trying to make him into a super-utility guy or at least one who has a good bit of position flexibility --- could be that's what is holding up his call up.

    Actually, CIN has been one of the better teams in the NL since they replaced Pryce with Riggleman....maybe what he's doing is actually working.
  12. Jake Lamb 2018 Outlook

    Yup, and has a tough LHP in Newcomb to end the week as well...he'll likely be benched for 2 of those 3 games against LHP (especially given his recent struggles) so I'm benching him myself this week. I'll probably regret it tho, knowing my luck.
  13. Nick Pivetta 2018 Outlook

    With you on that...I did not expect a 2.2 IP outing against what's been a pretty disappointing offense in PIT. Maybe it's the road thing, I know he had some bad D behind him in the early going so maybe he just isn't comfortable pitching from the stretch...? I'm not making excuses for the horrible outing, just trying to figure out what caused it so I can start him in better situations ROS. Next week is set to be a 2-start week with games @NYM and @MIA so the matchups are hard not to like....but if did THIS against PIT?? NYM & MIA could light him up too....both MIA and NYM are right-heavy lineups so maybe that's a hope to cling to?
