  1. Hanley Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    hahaha - Looks like the Red Sox disagree Sounds like it's purely a money move: Red Sox designated 1B/DH Hanley Ramirez for assignment. Alex Speier of the Boston Globe was first to report the news and the Red Sox have made the move official. Ramirez batted .330/.400/.474 in April, but a 0-for-20 stretch pushed his batting line for the season down to .254/.313/.395. Still, the move comes a surprise given that he has the third-most starts on the Red Sox this season and hit in the middle of the order in all of those starts. A $22 million option for 2019 would've triggered had Ramirez reached 497 plate appearances this season, something that no doubt factored into the Red Sox' decision here. Mitch Moreland will see a bump in playing time with Ramirez out of the picture. Related: Mitch Moreland Source: Boston Globe May 25 - 11:11 AM

    That's a long history. Yep - been benching when possible (started today on a short day). Hard to imagine cutting him but closer to thinking about it than a couple weeks ago obviously.

    Yep - officially perplexed now.

    As unhittable as he was early on that has come crashing down now. He was an auto-start for me that has officially changed.

    He has been one of the weaker links on my team. My SS is out RBI-ing him. His K rate is among the highest on my squad. He K'd once every 6ABs last year - it's once every 4 ABs this year. At least his OPS is solid, but overall regret drafting. Hopefully he turns it around.

    Yeah you very well could be right. This dude is so strange/eccentric - reminds me of someone like Marshawn in football. "Knucklehead" would be another way to describe it.
  7. Didi Gregorius 2018 Outlook

    Nah. He went 0-4 after that. The fact he "ran into one" isn't going to get him off my bench.

    Batting this dude 7th, 8th on a regular basis = some sort of genius managerial strategy that I have not heard about nor understand nor want to understand.

    How that contradicts the term "overmatched " I'm not sure. But alright - yes. maybe.

    Clippard overmatched entirely.

    It's all on Familia. He was a fail tonight - just simply imploded.
  12. 5/23 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Nice outing for Lester tonight. I'm overall satisfied with him so far this year - and that's unusual.
  13. May Closer Thread 2018

    Unless he's being rested tonight Clippard will have to go through Kinsler/Trout/Upton to get the save assuming it stays 3-1 in TOR. Not sure if I have the stomach to watch it or not.
  14. Marcell Ozuna 2018 Outlook

    If I were the Cards I wouldn't have sent anyone. Dude's a grown a** man. If anything - send someone over to sneak in and turn on Ozuna's TV to the Cardinal game and then sneak back out. Marcell Ozuna was scratched from the Cardinals' lineup for Wednesday afternoon's game against the Royals because he overslept. The Cardinals had to send somebody to Ozuna's apartment to wake him up and he did not arrive at Busch Stadium until after the game had started. Cardinals manager Mike Matheny came to Ozuna's defense in his postgame presser, telling reporters that Ozuna "couldn’t be any more regretful for not being here today on time" and that the team would "move forward." But it's obviously a really bad look for a guy who's batting just .253/.295/.331 through 44 games in his first year with the club. Source: St. Louis Post-Dispatch May 23 - 8:14 PM

    He'll choke and be back down at 7 before end of weekend. 2-14 8Ks incoming until then.
