  1. Yahoo app says his HR was 454 feet to deep center? Is that for reals, yo?
  2. Me too. Just to be safe, I grabbed him in my fantasy basketball, football, hockey, soccer, and cricket leagues as well until I know more about who the heck this guy is. ETA - Isn't he the guy who starred in The Shield?
  3. FYI - I see 4 lefties scheduled to face the Rockies next week (Vargas, Matz, Chen, and Caleb Smith). Desmond could be in for a big week if he’s still floating around on some waiver wires.
  4. Starting at 2B tonight. Looks like Dodgers want to use him there. Muncy could be quite the Swiss Army knife soon.
  5. It's tough to say what will happen. Bottom line, I think the Nats would be crazy to send Soto back down with the way he's hitting. But Taylor is an excellent defensive CF and the only right handed bat in the OF so I don't see him becoming the exclusive 4th OF. I could see some sort of platoon situation where the Nats will sometimes go with Soto in LF, Eaton in CF, and Harper in RF against righties. But I don't think that will be the everyday lineup against righties. I think Soto, Eaton, and even Harper may get the occasional day off. But let's be honest, this is only temporary until Eaton finds a way to hurt himself again. I bet Soto sits one day a week, Eaton sits 1-2, Harper every once in a while, and Taylor sits 3. Definitely going to be a logjam. Eaton could be back as early as today.
  6. I love speculating on guys who will help with ratios and Ks while you wait to see if they take over the closer role. If Vizcaino pulls it together or if Minter gets the nod, you'll have likely still gotten some decent stats out of Winkler. No harm, no foul. But if Winkler takes over, look out! His stats are almost identical to Sean Doolittle's this year: Doolittle: 18.2 innings, 7 hits, 3 walks, 3 ER, 28 Ks Winkler: 18.1 innings, 7 hits, 5 walks, 3 ER, 27 Ks Also from a late April article found here: https://www.foxsports.com/south/gallery/three-cuts-super-prospect-ronald-acuna-jr-immediately-upgrades-braves-042918
  7. Schwarbs had two excellent at bats against very good lefty relievers today. According to the Cubs announcers, his single of off Sam Freeman was the first hit Freeman has given up to a left-handed hitter this season. Then he worked a full count and eventually a walk off of AJ Minter. In both at bats he took some close ones and fouled off at least one or two.
  8. Scherzer is an animal. First two batters of the evening end up on 2nd and 3rd with no outs and you just watch how his body language changes into beast mode. Ks Goldschmidt, gets an infield pop fly, and then Ks the next guy. Pumps his fist, stalks off the field. edit - damn I’m a slow typer.
  9. I’d be buying low wherever I can. He’s got the talent. He’s hitting in the heart of the order for one of the best offenses in a great hitters park, especially when it heats up during the summer. And while his production is behind, he’s really one hot streak away from being right back in the mix. He’s young and he’s pressing a bit because he isn’t producing. He’ll come around.
  10. I’ve been following Eno for years and I completely agree. He’s mediocre at best when talking about hitters. But he’s been one of my go to guys when it comes to pitchers.
  11. I’ll bet anyone and everyone that the Nats don’t get a single hit off of Scherzer this season.
  12. I think this fine fella deserves a thread of his own considering the tear he’s been on. With the news on Eaton not being great and Adams playing in LF lately, he should be getting regular at bats for now when a righty is on the mound. He had a very useful stretch last year with Atlanta and could be an excellent short-term pickup in even shallower leagues. from http://www.pitcherlist.com/batters-box-the-adams-bombs/: Each player’s career path has its own quirks, its own ups and downs. Sometimes guys burst onto the scene and take the entire league by storm for the entirety of their careers. Sometimes they struggle for years and years before finally breaking through. Sometimes they fail miserably and are never heard from again. And sometimes they’re Matt Adams, a guy who has been perfectly fine for a very long time but who never seems to be able to find a full-time gig. Adams has been around for what feels like forever, and is now playing in his seventh major league season. But did you know he’s amassed more than 370 at-bats just once in that time? Pretty surprising for someone who has been a perfectly useful .271/.317/.469 hitter for his career. Maybe it’s because he plays defense like a semi-sentient ball of cheese, or because he’s hit just .203 against lefties throughout his career. Okay, let’s be honest, those are probably the reasons. But maybe, just maybe, there’s a beautiful ballplayer hiding within this flawed cocoon, just waiting to spread its wings.
  13. Winds blowing out again in Wrigley (O/U 10) and also some decent winds blowing out in Bos (O/U 10) and Stl (O/U 9). Mix that with mediocre pitchers and we could be in for some fun offensive games this afternoon!
  14. 10-team Points league Gave - Gary Sanchez, Mitch Haniger, Hanley Ramirez Got - Luis Severino, Travis Shaw, Sal Perez Pitchers are super valuable in this league. Severino was the 6th pitcher taken and went 13th overall. I snagged Sanchez in the middle of the 4th round.
