    The following things happened: He gave up his first ER of the year. People came to the thread to say he sucks. Rotoworld.
  2. Garrett Hampson COL - SS/IF

    Story/Valaika are trending down big time this year. Hampson outperforming Rodgers at the same level by a big margin. Outside shot at a call up considering his 23. Rockies might go with him over Rodgers first as to not rush Rodgers. Hampson with 148 wRC+ and 5 steals, 0 CS. K% the same as A+ last year, around 11%.
  3. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    If he keeps his K% under 8 then he could hit .320 or higher.
  4. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Romo is one of the very few true ROOGYs in baseball. Consistently destroyed by LHB throughout his career.
  5. Ryan McMahon 2018 Outlook

    Ian Desmond up to -0.2 WAR on the year, after -0.9 WAR last year. 75% GB right now with no walks. They could have let him flounder around in the OF instead of a bat-only position like 1B but they had to re-sign Cargo for $8M to provide 0 WAR over 500 ABs.

    He got Gray, McCullers, Cole and Morton all in a row for his audition vs. RHP. And now he got Gray again today so manager is going with Headley. But he showed decent intangibles in terms of some nice picks at 3B and a nice slide to score a big run recently, where you think that helps his case. I think they'll run him out there again against some more mediocre RHPs and we'll see what he can do then.
  7. Yonny Chirinos 2018 Outlook

    He has a 4 seam and 2 seam. A splitter and a slider. The slider is not that good. The 2 seam breaks bats. The 4 seam looks surprisingly decent, I didn't know he had that. The splitter comes and goes with command but has nasty drop.
  8. Yonny Chirinos 2018 Outlook

    He throws strikes and gets grounders so I think he has a chance the third time through just by limiting walks and flyballs. His OPS against will go up but I think he can survive. It's the guys like Faria who start walking guys and giving up bombs that really murder you.
  9. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    This guy lines out once or twice a game it seems.
  10. Colton Welker - 3B COL

    He is laying waste to A+. 8 for 12 with 5 walks. 1 strikeout and 2 homers.
  11. Michael Brantley 2018 Outlook

    Imagine prime Brantley with the juiced baseballs. 30 HR and .330 avg banked.
  12. Yonny Chirinos 2018 Outlook

    Great minor league numbers as a SP. And so far in his MLB career he has dominated the Red Sox in 2 straight outings. Maybe that's good enough to be a #5 SP in your rotation Tampa?
  13. Christian Villanueva 2018 Outlook

    He has 7 homers in 40 career PAs.
  14. Christian Villanueva 2018 Outlook

    He has the corpse of Chase Headley ahead of him. The Padres took Headley in order to get Bryan Mitchell so it makes sense that they would not care about him but he is a Padres "legend" so he will get 600 ABs and hit .240.
  15. Jose Martinez 2018 Outlook

    Well he has legit power and he uses the whole field. And he also doesn't strike out. So just mathematically speaking, it will be hard for this guy to not hit.
  16. 4/2 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Hicks has surprisingly decent command considering his velocity. He front-doored a slider for a strikeout.
  17. Ryan Zimmerman 2018 Outlook

    What makes you think he's off them?
  18. Philadelphia Phillies 2018 Outlook

    I wouldn't have taken out Nola but the Phillies had a 3 run lead going into the 8th and 9th. Then the late inning guys blew it. How is that any different than Nola going the full 7 and the late inning guys blowing it? It's not. Kapler's decision more or less worked.
  19. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    Jordan Hicks made the Cardinals OD roster. Cardinals obviously are being super aggressive with him. If it turns out big leaguers can't hit his 101 then they might say F IT and let him close.
  20. Garrett Hampson COL - SS/IF

    I think he makes it to AAA this year. Lemahieu is gone next year so there will be an opening for Rodgers and/or Hampson. But Hampson is athletic enough to become a super utility guy and play 2b/ss/3b and OF. He could be good enough to be on or near the ML roster next year. Older prospects always get slept on but he couldn't control where he played. What if his 130 wRC+ in A+ translated to 120 in AA? He had an .880 OPS in the 2nd half. He could have been in AA.
  21. Ryan McMahon 2018 Outlook

    The thought of a below average SS who can't lift the ball in the air getting paid $70M to play 1B in an environment which heavily incentivizes lifting the ball in the air is so unthinkable I still can't believe it happened.
  22. David Dahl 2018 Outlook

    When you have a chance to get -1.0 WAR for $26M in 900 PAs from Desmond and Cargo, you have to take it. Can't blame the Rockies really.
  23. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    Kela is done. His shoulder has been hurting him since the 2nd half of last year and it immediately flares up again as soon as ST starts? Gotta be done.
  24. SP Eligible Relievers 2018

    Tigers have nothing to play for. They have nothing to gain by pulling the plug on Norris as a SP. He had a 3.38 ERA as a 23 year old just a year ago. It would be a very short-sighted move.
  25. Logan Morrison 2018 Outlook

    I can't see how it isn't a clear step up from Tampa. Last year Tampa scored 694 runs and MIN scored 815. LoMo had an OPS over 1.000 on the road last year. He had a 14% HR/FB at the Trop and 25% HR/FB on the road. Spots 2 through 5 in MIN's order last year produced minimum 89 RBIs and 84 runs. 3rd and 5th were over 100 RBIs. Somehow 5th was over 100 runs and 100 RBIs. LoMo could easily put up .260/35HR/100RBI if he gets 2nd half Buxton and 2nd half Polanco.
