    Kind of made me wonder: what is the worst D you’ve seen at the big league level? Hanley in the outfield? The worst spell I saw i was Nick Hundley move to the outfield.

    Better hope he does something today because it could be easy to get in a bit of an early slide facing Greinke=G. Cole-Morton next

    And you didn't even account for how many games the opposition has missed from him tripping /getting tangled with them at first base.

    Well he is an easy hold for ten litttle days. If no trade or no apparent way back into playing time you can drop then, but give it the ten days to play out

    The dude grew up in Maryland too, so it doesn't seem like the case of him being really naive and brought up the wrong way, and then finally seeing a lot of diversity for the first time which shattered some prejudices. It just generally seems like he is a pretty bad guy to be around. I don't see how its likely that he was that disrespectful (if not hateful) towards all these different groups and to women, then became a star athlete with a lot of money coming and suddenly became a respectful stand-up guy underneath the hood.

    Yahoo (temporarily?) disagrees. Maybe they will go back and invalidate the hold after the official scorer's decision

    Can a player get a win and a hold in the same game (as Matt Barnes appeared to get today)?

    I agree he isn’t a verified stud. But In making that argument you said something that was simply not true. And the misleading part of that statement is implying he is as likely to be a stud as many many other people who have their first taste of success. But in reality he is much more likely to become a stud than all those people given his success and age.

    MLB is absolutely not littered with the carcasses of breakout *19 year old* rookies whose careers didn’t amount to much. MLB is not even littered with many break out 19 year olds at ALL (and of the few case studies, more were hall of farmers than were not). He still has to do it and that is never easy but don’t treat him as if he isn’t a special case

    Its like when players out for the season are not in the DL in September ... we all know they should be on the DL but since they technically aren’t, they aren’t in fantasy. There is no part of Ohtani that would be on the real DL so the pitching half of him wouldn’t be

    Hildenberger holy hell what the heck was that outing ... RIP this week

    What does that mean? regarding the dynasty comment: I still don’t see justifying #1 overall in dynasty. Trout is 26 and night be in the conversation for greatest player to ever live. There’s some others too

    Murdered today by Frisco (7 earned in 4.1 innings; three walks to six K’s).

    Nah he would be a great streamer a lot of the times. By my count he has 5 dominant starts and then a few other that are useful to what a streamer probably wants (a win, 8,9,10 k’s, albeit with maybe a 1.50 whip or 6.00 era which probably won’t kill a streamer team). And then he has a few where he got destroyed. Not fun to own but he would be streamed by someone every week if not owned

    Well hope you didn’t bench him today: monster day
