    Everything looks the same except babip/ba. I still think he ends the year with a similar to previous years 0.255/20HR, which means he will hit 0.270/16HR ROS

    i.e. he's WW material. Does anyone in this forum think they can't find a "replacement" for that in at least up to 12-team leagues

    RW Blurb Title: "Mazara cures slump with 2 homers"

    Considering his career numbers, I'm not sure he was even in a slump.


  2. I'd guess - like most NM owners - he had this kind of day on my bench. I was real close to cutting bait but this will string me along a bit longer. He could not have been more putrid than he was as illustrated in blurb below...

    Nomar Mazara clobbered a pair of homers Wednesday in the Rangers’ 6-5 loss to Oakland.

    Mazara took Aaron Brooks deep for a solo shot in the third inning, then led off the sixth with another blast, this time off Yusmeiro Petit. Wednesday marked Mazara’s third career multi-homer game. This ended a power drought for the 23-year-old, who hadn’t left the yard since April 3. Wednesday was also his first multi-hit game since April 7.

  3. Great start tonight - I saw (most of) it. 6IP 9K 3ER 0BBs 2 HRs 6 baserunners.

    I was pretty shocked early on with the longballs; he was down 3-1 in the 4th after HRs by Soler (2nd) and artist formerly known as "O'Hearn" (1st AB of 3rd). 

    That was the extent of the damage as he went 3 strong without further incident. 

    Naturally the Yankee offense was mesmerized by "Homer Bailey" and his fellow savants in that stellar Royal Pen.

    In any event - looking forward to German's start @ LAA - starting without doubt there.

  4. Not crazy about the idea of running him out tomorrow home v MIL. He's been pretty meh - not someone I'd ordinarily trust v solid offenses. I need the innings so will probably run him out there but this is his toughest matchup so far. Hope he eats Wheaties, stays in Holiday Inn Express (yes away from his house), or something.

  5. I'm not ready to drop Happ yet. The White Sox have been ripping opposing pitching staffs so far this year - it's pretty shocking. They are not the usual "CWS" you look to blindly stream against. Not so far- although I think eventually they regress to what they actually are.

    He's not this bad. If he's not injured, he is - at worst - at least as good a prospect as the best WW pitcher in 12+ leagues. Obviously in leagues that count W's rather than QS's he's much more valuable I think it's safe to say.
