    I mean, what is Hanley going to invest his money in? Mutual funds?

    Stanton / Judge got shot down in the spring by the Yankees beat writers (it was brought up due to the OF logjam and the lack of 1B depth)

    You forgot Justin Wilson. Iirc he received a save opportunity in Morrow's absence and, even tho he blew the save, he's been pretty good.

  6. June Closer Thread 2018

    Managers "name a closer" in the beginning of the season. It's tradition. Its customary for the bullpen contingent to "know their roles". But once all the set-up guys get accustomed to pitching in an array of scenarios (eg, tie game in 6th, up two in 8th) why mess with that? I think that's why you see managers reluctant to appoint a new closer when the incumbent goes down.

    So what are you saying?
  9. June Closer Thread 2018

    To be sure, this is Joe Madden we're talking about. He may have woken up one morning and said to himself: I think I'll give Morrow a two-week vacation this June to keep him fresh. Who knows

    Dude's had like one appearance in the past two weeks. Starting to get worried...
  11. LeBron James 2018 Offseason Thread

    Since LeBron's season has officially come to a (merciful) end, we can start speculating about next year. Here is what one oddsmaker thinks about LeBron's destination: Lakers +200Rockets +220Cavaliers +35076ers +350Celtics +1000Spurs +1200Warriors +2000Clippers +2000Heat +3300 In any case, wherever he ends up he'll still be the same premier fantasy asset--or will he? He'll be 34 years old by the end of 2019 and will be coming off a season in which he played a whopping 104 games. He's also entering the offseason nicked up, as you'd expect: LeBon James had two MRIs on his right hand after punching a blackboard after Game 1 of the Finals, according to Brian Windhorst and Dave McMenamin of ESPN.com. His hand was supposedly too swollen for the first MRI to provide any results. A second one at a later time found that it was a bone contusion in his right hand. Surgery is not expected for James. He has also been wearing a soft cast on his right hand and was wearing it at his postgame presser after Game 4 on Friday. He said he "pretty much played the last three games with a broken hand." We'll continue to monitor the status of his hand as well as his free agency decision this summer. LeBron said a lot has changed since his last free agency decision. He talked about his kids being older and that he'll sit down with his family and make a decision. Jun 9 - 12:52 AM Source: Brian Windhorst on Twitter
  12. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    That inside-the-park HR was a treat. Nimmo busted it right out of the box and yet he still would have but cut down at home if the Rockies hadn't botched the throw. Pays to hustle!

    Well played, Sandy.

    I swear, the Mets fans are not overly excited about Nimmo. At least that's the vibe I get listening to talk-radio.

  20. LeBron James 2018 Offseason Thread

    Regarding LeBron signing with Philly, I heard someone say he would be good mentor to Ben Simmons. And I thought, which player has LeBron been a mentor to lol?

    Any one can find ratios in this environment. Holds. Those are tough to pin down.
  22. New York Mets 2018 Outlook

    Advice: Don't overreact when deGrom is in the midst of an epic run of luck -- he's not this good -- and the Mets offense are in a epic run of futility -- they're not this bad.

    Meh, DD's in a platoon and every now and then he misses a start vs a righty.
  24. Kawhi Leonard 2018-19 Season Thread

    I still can't wrap my head around Kawhi being, I suppose you could say, a prima donna and demanding all these things. Didn't Pop joke Kawhi never spoke!?!
