  1. More Humidors Coming

    Yeah pretty soon all stadiums will have to have identical measurements and all mascots will have to dress alike.

    Unluck vs the Mets Medical Staff. Nope, not unluck.

  4. Know they shouldn't. NL pitchers would then collect hitting stats and AL pitchers would be blocked from same by the DL. Until the NL becomes enlightened and finally adopts the DL you can't have something like that skewing like 99% of all leagues aka all but single leagues only.

    True but in this case one did survive and brought back the following information. Alas the other was swallowed by an alligator but oh well thems the breaks for a Red Shirt.

    Captain's Log: Friday the 23rd, Plantary Time. Continued monitoring of Planet Sox Nation regards one referred to as JD. He has not been sighted for several of his planetary days. And today only crickets seem to be alive down there. Will have to send some Red Shirts down tomorrow to investigate further. Kirk out.
  7. Brent Honeywell - SP TB

    Finally, proof as to why pitcher are all wonky and their arms do terrible things to their fantasy owners. They are all aliens born with wonky arms.

    Thank you for all these detailed posts here. But for now I just want to emphasis the word CHANGED here. I appreciate the fact you take this into consideration. So many stat talkers only look at the collective history as a whole of a pitcher. But it really is all about what has he done lately. Because young players can and do CHANGE as they mature. That's the sweet spot you look for in an improving pitcher. Why the change and is it for real as in a new pitch, a new approach (like here), or physical and/or mental growth etc. Godley can be a SP3 for anyone this year and even a SP2 in a real deep league right now. And he is getting better, not worse.

    Hasn't worked out too well for Tampa Bay down the endless decades.

    Captain's Log: Thursday night the 22nd local planetary time: While orbiting the planet called Sox Nation by it's inhabitants we continue our monitoring of the events occurring below. The official date a mysterious entity know only as JD was to be "signed" (whatever that means) was today. With the day passing and nothing having happened there is increased signs of panic happening down on the planet. Finally, "around 4 p.m. (local planetary time) on Thursday, reporters received official word that a Martinez signing would not be announced." This apparently sent the more crazed of Soxites, and there are a LOT in that category accord to Mr Spock's calculations, into a frenzy of overreaction and some are coming up with all sorts of conspiracy theories as to why this JD hasn't been officially signed as of yet. The most oft heard reason is "the physical." Soxite Leaders have cited "logistics" as to why this is taking so long. These primitives are so ... well ... primitive. Dr McCoy's tricorder would have gotten a physical done in no time. Other theories revolve around getting something called an insurance policy in place first. Or a specialist (a rank in their military no doubt) being called in. A recent transmission was intercepted: “I have no information from them other than the review is not yet complete,” someone named Scott Boras said. Apparently this Scott Boras is of no importance so I do not know why he cares at all about this. Meanwhile an email was found belonging to a Soxite Elder called Dave Dombrowski. He wrote in that email that he was "unsure whether Martinez (a secondary name for this entity JD it would seem, perhaps a title?) could work out with the team on Friday." In summary this planet's primitives seem to lack coordination. They go into panic mode with little or no information and seem to have wild emotional swings. You can imagine Mr Spock is not impressed by such behavior. Me, I find it highly amusing. Kirk out.

    I think the hype started last year by the All Star game.
  13. 2017-2018 Off-season and Hot Stove Thread

    Archer, Faria, Snell and Andrise right now. Andrise is a good enough pitcher but has always been blocked one way or another in TB. But yeah that still leaves only 4 if Honeywell's injury is bad. Still they probably have more pitchers than Rays fans at their home games so there is that I guess.
  14. 9th Inning Rule Being Floated

    I totally agree with that. I still think they have to put in a time clock to force pitching slugs and sloths to wake up and "activate" and realize there is a game to play. But yes they are losing kids across the whole country in general as well as most people in the eastern time zone where playoff games sometimes don't finish until going on 1 AM or later..
  15. 9th Inning Rule Being Floated

    This is just a rules change for the sake of making a change. it doesn't speed up the game. It makes a mockery of it instead.
