    It takes forever for young pitchers to get their sea legs it seems. Meanwhile owners see their hair turn gray waiting. I'd like to thank the long suffering owner in one of my dynasty leagues who looked in the mirror and saw his hair had turned gray and raged dropped him over a month back. One man gathers what another (now gray-haired) man spills. :-)

    Yeah only JD of Boston's only top everyday hitters is in the starting line-up. (Well Brock Holt has been hot lately I guess). Trevor Bauer is thrilled. 1. Tzu-Wei Lin (L) CF 2. Brandon Phillips (R) 2B 3. Rafael Devers (L) 3B 4. J.D. Martinez (R) DH 5. Steve Pearce (R) 1B 6. Brock Holt (L) SS 7. Blake Swihart (S) RF 8. Sam Travis (R) LF 9. Sandy Leon (S) C

    Anyone with Red Sox players on your team check the line-up tonight when posted. They clinched the AL East last night and were up late with the spraying (and drinking) of the booze ritual. And that was in NY. They then had to travel to Cleveland super late. Probably will have a lot of the scrubs playing tonight as a result. Also Mariners at Texas and Brewers at Pirates should be monitored for weather closer to game time.

    If your ratios are already shot, sure. Too bad he isn't pitching tonight (Friday) because most of the Sox regulars will likely be out of the game after staying up late at Yankee Stadium celebrating their divisional win.

    So how is an MRI that showed inflammation and "maybe more" the same as a MRI that just shows inflammation in Story's case?

    I'm guessing Atlanta doesn't know either depending on how/when they might clinch their division. How many do they need to clinch? If he doesn't start again until next week that could make him a 2-game starter that week so H2H owners may have a toss-up on desires and of course it doesn't really matter much in roto except that he avoids the Phillies if he doesn't start on Sunday.

    And how do you know it is the exact same thing to the exact same degree? Everyone step back from the ledge for a second. Plenty of time to jump off later if need be.

    Yeah I think the plan is 5 innings. After his first two starts he went out and threw some more pitches in the bullpen so it seems it is more an innings thing than a pitch count thing. Doing it that way allows for a pre-planned bullpen scenario too for the remaining innings.

    Up to 4 starts now (8 appearances).

    I don't know about 15 homers but KC is way out of it and will supporthim so to get to at least 40 steals is definitely the goal and he will have the green light no matter what the score is in a game the rest of the year.
  11. The projections now have Florence going further south. After hitting around Wilmington there is a high chance it might now hug the coast and meander down close to the Savannah area then come ashore for good. Which means less rain for Washington and Baltimore and Philly but perhaps weekend rain in the Atlanta area from the leftover cloud bands. Ironically the Nats are there this weekend which, a few days ago, looked like a good way to avoid said rain.

    It is officially "closer by committee" now based on situations in games. So they all could close ... or not.

    Who are -- or were -- the normal Tiger announcers and who was the replacement?
  14. Tampa Bay Rays 2018 Outlook

    I don't think anyone picked them for last place in the AL East this season. Given Baltimore's lousy rotation going into the season they were the odds on favorites to be bottom of the barrel. And so it has come to pass. TB always is "pesky" because of their pitching. They need hitting too to become a legit threat though.

    Err, playoff week. Wish they would pay me but then I don't play in pay leagues because people get way to silly and squirrelly and stuff when money is involved.
