  1. Application denied.
  2. Low average Twin with good speed and average power suddenly hits 45 homers? I guess crazier things have happened... PS-I'm not saying I'm expecting this!
  3. Nah not really. They aren't going to overwork him but he will still get 2-3 appearances if the situation allows to stay sharp. You don't want to shut a pitcher down for 10+ days
  4. He broke out three years ago and has been exactly the same for three years now. Still I don't think anyone really cares much about him. some big bust outs for me were Michael Fulmer, Gary Sanchez, and Roughned Odor.
  5. Wow pure garbage tonight: Angels are absolutely destroying the baseball against him. Gotta love back to back to back homers before recording an out! Yikes
  6. This is actually relevant from an outsider view: I own Nova and started him today because he was against Musgrove
  7. This is what you paid for: certainly if you took Kinsler's stats right now anyone who drafted him would be ecstatic that he had accumulated them by August 22nd. Most, including myself, would have signed for his current statline for the year. He's done is job: if you want to sit him while he is moderately slumping that's your prerogative
  8. Oh my god, did you watch the 5 minutes of SnapChat videos that were linked in there? I mean, it seems like THEY are having fun, but it also simultaneously looks like a 7th rung of hell to me: He just spins in circles with his phone screaming while everyone in the room also screams. Maybe thats what kids do these days? Seems awful.
  9. Yeah but also no injuries. I'd much rather this than years past where he hits a dozen homers in April or hits .350 for a few months here or there. Its been nice, steady production
  10. This is one of my favorite sentences I've ever seen on the internet lol
  11. Stupid offer for him... why would anyone even consider offering that? Mine:
  12. So in a fairly deep 16 team keeper league (7x7 H2H extra categories of K's and OPS for hitters; CG and K:BB for pitchers), I traded $15 Danny Salazar for $15 Xander Bogaerts. We keep six per team so both will be kept. This made very little sense for my team but I couldn't pass up the value (Bogaerts is ranked #8 in the league). What/who would you trade to even this team back up? Current keepers: Correa $10, Bogaerts $15, Kluber $22, Betts $15 Plus 2 of these: Encarnacion $24, LeMahieu $4, L. Cain $9, Brantley $18, Harvey $20, Carrasco $31 Just to give you a pricing idea, on the open market top pitchers were Bumgarner ($52), Strasburg ($49), King Felix ($40). Top batters available were McCutchen ($48), M. Cabrera ($47), Braun ($38)
  13. Damn he has only had 33 at bats vs. lefties this year??? I guess the Sox have just faced a ridiculously disproportionate number of righties on the season? Bizarre. Anyway its a very small sample size; last year he hit .311 vs. lefties (better than righties) so I would not be worried. In summary: "U crazy."
  14. Or even better, it's called and Kluber gets the CG SO W QS. Doesn't matter in my league. It's a drag being robbed of another inning or so on a day he was pitching so well. Terry?
  15. Its a Christmas miracle: rain delay will force Kluber out after 6 superb innings. (Or will Francona have the audacity to throw him back out there even still...)
