  1. Daniel Murphy 2018 Outlook

    Was literally thinking the exact same thing. Come on Danny Boy, get goin' already!
  2. Domingo Santana 2018 Outlook

    Right, because Aguilar has such a long track record of success.
  3. May Closer Thread 2018

    Agreed. You wonder how much of it may also be psychological. He knows he didn't cash in and has to prove himself on a one year deal and if he doesn't perform you kinda figure he knows it's the law of diminishing returns, as far as any offer may go. It's a similar situation to what Bautista found himself at the end of last off-season. Was demanding huge dollars from the Jays before his contract expired, then had a really down year and there were no suitors. He was lucky to have received the one year deal from the Jays last year.
  4. J.D. Davis 2018 Outlook

    We'll see if they are 'showcasing' him or not, because right now they actually need a productive LF'er. One of the only holes in an otherwise dominant looking team. Davis has some versatility, because he played 1B in college, and has also played 3B and LF. A suitor is likely trading for him to give him an everyday shot, but it's really where they think he can play (or want him to play). Because of his versatility I don't think you are talking about a few teams, but likely many. For now, there aren't that many teams completely out of it so let's look at those that are already in 'wave the white flag mode'. The Reds (not likely a fit with Votto and Suarez/Senzel unless they want him in the OF), Rays (possibility); Royals (another possibility to take over for Moose or at 1st); Rangers (unlikely trading them in their division); Tigers (possibility); White Sox (Could be to take over for Abreu); Marlins (Possibility for any of the 3 positions); and Padres (if they believe in Villanueva then unlikely, because of Hosmer and a crowded young OF). Just my take.
  5. Mark Reynolds 2018 Outlook

    So what's the take when Zimmerman comes back, likely early next week? I can't imagine Zimmerman sits and Reynolds takes the everyday job and they also have Adams. I do see a platoon of sorts, though both Reynolds and Zim bat right-handed. Curious to see how this plays out.
  6. Brad Peacock 2018 Outlook

    Stros are using him as they feel they need to. Pretty hard to argue with the depth and talent they have both in the rotation and in the pen not to mention the fact that they are playing lights out. Sucks for 'fantasy' baseball, and I too wish he could have been an SP or valuable holds guy, but they are using him as they need him. If a starter does go down, it's likely him or McHugh that fill the spot. Until then, I don't see his role changing.
  7. Miguel Andujar 2018 Outlook

    He's shown some signs of life of late. That is baseball. He started off hot, pitchers adjusted, and now hopefully Andujar is also adjusting to how he's being pitched. For me, it's a good sign. Overall, his performance on both sides of the field, relative to his age and experience, is likely more than the Yankees expected. Better 'real life' than fantasy so far, imo. That said, I definitely think he is a guy to target in keeper leagues. The fact that he has also done it in the spotlight of NYC also shows that he has a lot of poise for a young kid.
  8. Gary Sanchez 2018 Outlook

    And he's out of the game. Romine in. Anyone see anything why he was pulled?
  9. May Closer Thread 2018

    So what do you guys think of the Phillies situation? Thought they would allow Seranthony to run with it, but looks like Nerris is still the favorite next time out. I realize Seranthony is probably the long-term (and still may possibly be the short term) answer, just don't have a lot of bench space.

    No kidding, it's a man versus a boy. Besides that their stance is completely different. Not been overly impressed with BA over the past couple years.

    Like Franny says "And the haters gonna hate hate hate hate, Baby, I'm just gonna shake, shake, shake, shake, shakeI shake it off, I shake it off"
  12. Seattle Mariners 2018 Outlook

    @Cmilne23 thoughts on what the M's do now at 2B? Surprised Vogelbach was the corresponding move. Do you think there is any room for ABs for him with the current lineup configuration?
  13. Mac Williamson 2018 Outlook

    He's back in the AAA lineup tonight. Unlikely he is going to be activated for the 'Stros series, imo.
  14. Keibert Ruiz- C Dodgers

    And another bomb tonight. 2-4 HR, already almost matched his HR output from last year.
  15. Franmil Reyes 2018 Outlook

    Don't write my boy, Franny, off just yet. Nice to see a walk tonight too.
