  1. I can't blame anyone for starting someone vs SD. But for me, I'm leaning against it. His last two starts weren't just bad. They were horrendous. In the three starts before these last two, he didn't complete six innings once. One of those 3 starts weren't that good, but the other two were solid starts done in by inefficiency. In one of them, he needed 102 pitches for 5 innings, in another he needed 116 pitches for 5.1 innings. As I play in a QS league, completing 6 is important. I think I need to see some signs of improvement before I roll him out again.
  2. With 111 pitches, I assume he's done for the night. If so, it was a pretty good one... 7 IP, 3 H, 1 ER, 1 BB, 8 K.
  3. Promoted to High-A. http://www.csnphilly.com/philadelphia-phillies/phillies-promote-top-pitching-prospect-sixto-sanchez-clearwater
  4. Wright debuted in High-A last night, going 2 perfect innings with a strikeout. It wasn't an easy task as he faced a Dunedin team with prospects like Bichette and Guerrero Jr. They were 0-2 against him. Of Wright's 29 pitches, 18 were strikes.
  5. Rotoworld, July 20: "It seems like a pretty strong second half is on the way."
  6. Braves first rounder Kyle Wright has been promoted from the GCL to High-A Florida. In three abbreviated starts in the GCL, Wright threw 5.2 IP, allowing 1 run on 3 hits and 2 walks. He struck out 8. The former Vanderbilt star was one of the top 2 or 3 talents in the MLB Draft this year.
  7. If we had to guess, would we say Darvish probably isn't starting twice this week now?
  8. Another HR today, up to 24 on the year. As of now, he's slashing 305/.355/.564
  9. Fell just short of the CGSO after allowing a couple walks and a bermuda triangle single in the 9th (which should have been the 3rd out). Still very encouraging.
  10. Well, this throws a kink into my plans. I have a Wednesday night deadline to activate Vizcaino and was going to drop Swarzak for him until the save came today.
  11. The Price isn't right tonight. Price has given up 4 runs on 4 hits in 3 innings so far against an Angels team third to last in MLB in OPS vs LHP. Worst start in over a month. That 4th ER hurts so bad in leagues where owners hold out for a QS.
  12. Another start against the Padres and he got rocked again. His last 2 starts were against SD, a gift for most pitchers. But Samardzija choked each time. In the 2 starts: 10.1 IP, 17 H, 12 ER, 1 BB, 11 K He was chased after giving up 5 runs on 8 hits over 4.1 IP tonight. His ERA is now at 5.05, despite his sterling K/BB.
  13. First four Arizona batters tonight vs Scherzer: HR HR HR 1B No words......
  14. So today wasn't the disaster that last Friday was, but it was still disappointing. 4 ER over 6 vs the Padres.......
  15. The Robertson trade is a huge disappointment. I've been rostering Kahnle for a few months now, thinking he was likely next in line if/when Robertson got moved. With Kahnle's numbers, he was only a closer's gig away from being a top fantasy reliever. I didn't expect Kahnle would be moved, not with him under team control through 2020. Worse yet, he's now buried in the Yankees pen with Chapman, Betances and Robertson. For anyone prospecting on Kahnle, the trade is a big pop in the balloon.
