    With the addition of Watkins to this offense does that help or hurt Kelce? 🤔

    Thanks for the response. On the surface you make good points, but... I know it’s an age-old question but how else can you improve versus lefties unless you get more opportunities to face them? And don’t we all know at this point what both Duvall and Hamilton bring to the table?

    Another HR tonight...why, again, is he not getting everyday at-bats on this team?!?

    Morton is a FA after the season, as well.
  5. Shane Bieber 2018 Outlook

    Both Bieber and Plutko pitched tonight. Bieber - 7IP, 4H, 0ER, 1BB, 5K in AAA Plutko - 4.2IP, 8H, 5ER, 3BB, 5K vs CHW

    To be clear, the HBP was intentional. It was retaliation from Harrison being hit by a pitch earlier in the game. You’d think Pittsburgh might wait for a reliever to enter before enacting revenge. The wheels came off quickly after Musgrove’s HBP and ultimately cost the Pirates a win. You gotta love the unwritten rules.

    Two HR’s in the four game series vs each vs Cole and Morton. His K/BB ratio has suffered since he took over regular playing time from Hanley but the average and OPS are still above .300 and 1.000, respectively. There is a lot to like here with Moreland hitting in the middle of that BOS lineup.

    Anyone else find it odd that Alonso is only DH eligible on ESPN but plays for an NL team?

    If he does indeed get sent right back down after Thursday’s game then a player on the 25 man roster would have to be placed on the DL in order for him to be called back up within 10 days. The Kingham/Nova situation in Pittsburgh is a nice example of the above scenario.

    Gave up 1 ER today in 6.2 innings and his ERA went up from 1.08 to 1.11
  11. 5/25 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Hell, he threw 114 again tonight. 🤦🏻‍♂️
  12. Joe Musgrove 2018 Outlook

    Musgrove's last two seasons pitching regularly in the minors before being called up by the Astros: 2015 - AA, A+, A - 1.88 ERA, 100.2 IP, 99/8 K/BB ratio, 0.92 WHIP 2016 - AAA, AA - 2.74 ERA, 85.1 IP, 87/10 K/BB ratio, 1.04 WHIP There was not a clear opening for him when he was called up so he was shuttled back and forth between the rotation and the bullpen. The pedigree is there for this kid to be really solid with the type of control he showed in the minors. I just hope the shoulder issues don't reappear.

    I’m sure he means Reyes. And why is Flaherty still available in ANY league?
  15. Caleb Smith 2018 Outlook

    It makes me laugh how one really bad inning from Smith erases all the good he provided over his last four starts. Is he prone to a loss of command from time to time? Sure. But who, outside of the elite guys, isn’t? He certainly deserves a longer leash than some of you guys are giving. But, hey, if you want to drop him for a middling option then so be it.
