  1. Ha - I agree with bolded in particular, post in general.
  2. I could be mistaken, but I don't remember when Brach would ever have given up an RBI to an opposing relief pitcher. Not a good look.
  3. The Rockies' failure to produce in their own crib has become tedious. This is kind of ridiculous what they're "doing" v SF.
  4. Yeoman's effort by Musgrove so far - but he'll be lucky to stay eligible for the W. 88 pitches through 4. I'm sure he'll get his chance to cash in - but he and his D better play it tight to get him there.
  5. Not sure what happens in the near future, and maybe this is a self-fulfilling prophecy on the Dodgers' behalf, but so far it's evident why the Dodgers have been unwilling to commit to him for a full workload. The difference is obvious - he was nearly flawless over the last year+ until the latest episode, when LA not only took him out of the rotation when Ryu/Hill returned but then didn't pitch him for like 2 weeks and only then did he get a fraction of an inning only to be left idle for another umpteen amount of days. He should have been pitching immediately in a bullpen role but instead he was an unoffical mascot for about a month.
  6. Lost a bet or something. EE screwed up the first one.
  7. Snell gave EE two meatballs, same location. Guess what happened to the second one.
  8. Yordan rung up on a pitch clearly low and outside the zone.
  9. Wow - activated and still no action on this thread. Dude's ready to roll Friday Dodgers activated SS Corey Seager from the 10-day injured list. Seager will be ready to rock for the Dodgers' first game out of the All-Star break Friday night in Boston after missing nearly four weeks of action with a left hamstring strain. The 25-year-old shortstop had registered an .828 OPS with eight home runs, 38 RBI, and 40 runs scored in 66 games before the injury. He went 2-for-4 on his two-game minor league rehab assignment at High-A Rancho Cucamonga. Jul 10, 2019, 3:41 PM ET
  10. So far so good:
  11. I agree. OTOH - he continues to let people on base other than errors. He's supposed to be a technician who can pitch his way out of trouble. He has not done that since taking Hill's spot. Then today he gets removed after 4.1 when he just as easily could have let his own baserunners score rather than Baez who did that for him. He had 71 pitches at that point. A guy who gets pulled after 71 pitches regardless of situation is pretty much impossible to project IP post-ASB. His job as a starter at all is in serious question - or should be - after only 2 appearances. He's been awful.
  12. In all fairness @ARI is a tough assignment these days. I expected worse than he actually did. He's still a quality pitcher - what happened today would have no bearing on hold/cut decisions for me. He's done well enough to hold for a while still imo. He's a definite red flag, but I'm not selling yet.
  13. His next start will either be @BOS or @ PHI. Depending on how things shake out he has a chance to start home v MIA. He's not going to be usable in that first start imo - I have no trust whatsoever at this point. I'm heavily weighing cutting bait.
  14. Although the nickname was so damn handy to have because only 4 letters, from this point forward I will no longer refer to NS as "thor". He is unworthy of that, or any other nickname. He will only be referred to by me in the future as "NS". Please join in my effort to #un-nickname the unworthy. The new Matt Harvey is in the house. Thank you.
  15. Per my post above you had to start him v SF. After he failed there = easy drop. Tonight was not a good matchup should have been at least a bench.
  16. You did nail it I'll give you that. RE: Soroka in general I'm not concerned. Shiite happens.
  17. At 87 pitches I imagine he'll be out there for the 5th. His spot in the order is 9th to start the bot 4th.
  18. πŸ˜† Niko Goodrum went 3-for-5 with a two-run homer Thursday as the Tigers topped the White Sox 11-5. Advice: The homer was his first since he hit two against the Braves on May 31. Goodrum strikes out too much for someone with such middling power, and for all of his versatility on defense, he doesn't actually seem to be very good anywhere. He's hardly a disaster, but it'd be better for the Tigers if he could be turned into more of a part-timer. (
  19. This is a curious blurb, especially considering RW themselves brought up the scenario of no minor league assignment back on July 2. That being what it may - anyone have any idea if this has teeth or just fantasy... Dodgers manager Dave Roberts told reporters on Wednesday that it's possible Corey Seager (hamstring) could be activated before the All-Star break. Advice: Well that's interesting. The assumption was that Seager would come back after the break, but it sounds like he's made enough progress that he could be back before the games stop. We think it's more than likely that the Dodgers play it safe with the shortstop, but at the very least, he should be back by the middle of the month if he doesn't suffer a setback.

  20. Nope - this was a successful outing off a long DL stint and the Yanks had a lead. Best of all worlds pulling him after 6 with those pristine numbers. The one run he allowed was the leadoff HR by McNeil. Thought we were headed in a much different path back in Bottom 1st. I think the HR helped focus him in this start.
  21. D😍MING😍 Welcome back
  22. Suarez apparently thinks homers are all he can hit and that's why his K rate is abominable
  23. How much is there to this "rumor" he's back by Friday? I want to be ready to plug him in if so. Hard to believe they don't wait til next week, but just wondering...
