  1. Love Maeda's reaction after he served one up ... Lol
  2. Manager Rick Renteria says that Cordell will be given full time ABs. Anything to see here? Some speed, some power, not great plate discipline.
  3. What are the chances they get the Mets / Twins game in? Yahoo shows 100% chance of precipitation ... showers. Playable?
  4. 8 Yahoo leagues (1 - 20 / 7 - 50) Voit 7 - always seemed to have another draft option and figured I'd have Voit available late. Bauer 6 - Wanted one of Cole / Nola / Bauer around the 3rd / 4th round. Bieber 4 / Pivetta 3 - upside arms ... would try to get Flaherty after Bauer, but often had to fill a bat. Paddack 5 - Most of my drafts were well before it was announced that he made the OD roster. Just liked what i saw in ST. Devers 5 - Takes a step forward this year. Like his spot in the order. Good spring. Puig / Dahl / Eloy - 4 Always tried to get one or two here Teoscar / Soler - 3 Late OF/U help Seranthony 6 - Like him to take over sometime this year, if not good ratios and k/9.
  5. I was actually glad CBS had such low projections. It kept the hype down as we rolled through spring training and our keeper / auction draft process. I picked him up off waivers last year ($6) and was very high on him going into the offseason though the addition of Cano slowed the roll. We keep 15 and took a chance letting him go back to the draft only to get him back cheaper with an extra year. Love his bat control and developing power. Sneaky sleeper / breakout potential if he can take advantage of early playing time to force their hand.
  6. I know he hit 22 last year, but I think CBS has him at 8hr and 15 steals. Something similar with Yahoo. I think he way outperforms the power numbers.
  7. What about want is healthy for Greg Allen?
  8. I don't think there's been a huge surge in him because most projections still show single digits hr and modest steals. I just got him in my auction at $4, which I thought was a bargain. Undrafted waiver players go for $6, so he's less that replacement cost. I have seen him taken at the very end of Yahoo drafts.
  9. I watched the game today. He had the Philly hitters off balance all day. Had to pitch out of a couple of jams created by his D. Sinking fastball and wicked slider ...
  10. I'd say Moustakas would be close to Shaw. Estimates are for nearly the same numbers except Shaw has 3 or 4 more bags. Just go to your display all 2b projections and look at where Shaw sits relative to others.
  11. The last hit was junk. Rosario hit a pop fly flare behind 3rd base that either Dejong or Ozuna should have been able to get ... certainly with better communication. That put runners on the corners with 2 outs. Too bad the Cards don't have better D. Mikolas should've been out of the inning and qualified for the potential win.
  12. Ideally he gets 20+ games at each position so that he's eligible most everywhere.
  13. The week just solved itself with the Patriot's day game ppd. He should only get one day unless they decide to skip Brian Johnson which is a possibility. He gets his 2 start week next week if this is the case and I get to see if he can even make it through 2-3 ip without going numb (let alone 5-6 ip). I'm fine with playing matchups. Sat him against NYY. In my daily yahoo leagues, there's really only a handful of starters that I would deem matchup proof. Flexibility in my keeper league is far more limited by weekly lineup changes, but in this case, based on his last result, his health concerns, his matchup, and that he only has 1 start now, he's a good sit. Too much risk when I have another good streaming option to run out there. I would actually love it if he blanked the Angels. That'd go a long way to restoring some confidence. Heck I'd be happy with 2-3er in 5ip with 6ks even if it's on my bench.
  14. That's sorta the problem. If i start him, he fills that slot for both starts and I can't start someone else if he gets shelled in ANA or if he has health issues. In a Yahoo league, i'd have the flexibility to mix the starts. Too bad his 2 start week is right after he claims loss of sensation. Can't run him out there for a trial. I'm tempted to play it safer.
  15. What is everyone planning on doing here with Price this week. Tuesday @ ANA (Ohtani) Sunday @ OAK (Mengden) I'm worried about his elbow / UCL / hand losing sensation. I could use the two starts, but with weekly lineups, but what are the odd that he gives only a couple of innings. Anaheim has a hot offense now too.
