  1. Jordan Hicks 2018 Outlook

    Hicks is a sinkerball pitcher who happens to throw harder than other sinkerballers. Sinkerballers aren't good for fantasy. They get a ton of balls put in play. Dude doesn't control the zone at all. Ks come from putting the FB in certain spots and throwing nasty secondary pitches to get hitters to react to certain areas of the zone. He throws a 100 MPH sinkerball, which dudes can make contact on, often weak contact. Hitters know what he's going to throw, I'm sure hitting a 100 MPH sinker isn't fun. But he won't be a big K guy at the MLB level in his current form. He's like Nick Blackburn with 10-12 MPH more.
  2. Jason Kipnis 2018 Outlook

    My god he's been wretched. The Indians offense has been on fire this month and dude has had zero piece of the action. It's like a group of guys who visit a brothel and Kipnis is the one who goes, "Nah, fellas, I'm gonna sit this one out."
  3. Matt Carpenter 2018 Outlook

    I drafted him this year, but dude looks washed. Sat behind home plate tonight, the bat is really slow. Maybe he's injured, not sure, but this isn't your typical slow start without worry. Dude's bat looks like it's coated in molasses.
  4. Carlos Santana 2018 Outlook

    I owned him in a keeper for years and he always rewards patience. I think he'll have a career year playing in that bandbox. That bomb he hit today would have been a double in Cleveland. He's in a great hitters' park with a lot of solid hitters around him.
  5. Matt Harvey 2018 Outlook

    Harvey can now eat some of that disgusting Skyline chili sludge when he's getting hammered. I just picture this dude going from dating models in NYC a few years ago to sitting in an apartment in Cincinnati, drinking away his sorrows, eating Skyline chili.
  6. Dylan Bundy 2018 Outlook

    Looking at that FB on the HR to Soler, it was 85 and he missed his location by two feet. Probably the worst pitch I've seen all year.
  7. Dylan Bundy 2018 Outlook

    This is probably worse than that insane pounding Vin Mazzaro took back 5 or 6 years ago because any Bundy owner had to have started him against the Royals. No one had Mazzaro in their lineups. I remember Bumgarner had a start early in his career where he gave up like 8 or 9 ER in 1/3 of an inning and I started him.

    Easy choice for the Colts with Nelson on the board.
  9. 2018 NFL Draft "Gameday" Thread

    The Ward pick feels like a rushed pick in a fantasy draft when you're rushing back to your computer from taking a dump.
  10. Lucas Giolito 2018 Outlook

    Dude has atrocious stuff. Easily one of the more disappointing hyped up prospects in recent memory. Looks like back end/swing guy at best.
  11. Sean Manaea 2018 Outlook

    I ran this guy out there in a couple leagues because I was completely hammered when I was setting my lineups last night, so I threw caution to the wind. Dude looks like a stud, that Boston lineup has been absolutely raking. Pretty awesome performance.
  12. Danny Duffy 2018 Outlook

    Why the hell is Yost pitching him on three days rest? This is a 100 loss team. Yost being a WS-winning manager reminds of the movie "Being There". An absolute moron just lucks his way into success.
  13. Edwin Encarnacion 2018 Outlook

    He was hitting .199 with .689 OPS on May 20th of last year. This slump is deep, but patiently waiting for him to go on one of his patented homer binges.
  14. Biggest gas can in MLB

    Shields is up there. Dude gives up an incredible amount of bombs now. 27 in 117.1 innings last year. Bert Blyleven gave up 50 in 271.2 innings for the record. Shields would have shattered that last year if he'd thrown 230+ innings. All-time gas cans were Carlos Silva with the Mariners, Nick Blackburn, and Jeremy Sowers. I remember a guy in one of my leagues back in the day drafted Sowers after his rookie season. Easily had the worst stuff I've ever seen on an MLB field. Sowers then put up a year where he sported a 6.42 ERA, 1.56 WHIP and a laughably atrocious 3.2 K/9. The all-time gas can season has to be Brian Matusz's 2011. 10.69 ERA, 2.11 WHIP, and an incredible 18 homers in 49.1 innings.

    Damn the Indians lineup is ice cold. Almost every regular is under the Mendoza line in the early going.
