  1. Probably those who read the news reports saying he'll be back today, obviously.
  2. Sure it can hurt you. If/when you waste your #1 waiver and the guy you miss out on next week becomes a stud.
  3. Drop him unless you're in a deep and/or competitive league where possible starting RBs are on the waiver wire.
  4. Everyone knows what he's "going to demand". That's not a question. The question is whether or not they should pay him that $ two seasons before his rookie contract is even played out. And the answer is definitely "NO"...unless they want to cripple their franchise (again).
  5. Are some people in this thread seriously trying to argue that Smith has an equal chance of getting hurt on the bench as he has throwing 90+mph pitches on the mound? Have we really reached the point where we are so obtuse that we completely throw common sense out the window based on studies that we clearly don't understand? Every single pitch carries risk, so limiting the # of pitches clearly limits the risk of injury. What the study is claiming isn't contrary to this. What the study is claiming is that each additional pitch doesn't carry MORE risk than the past pitch. It's a simple concept, but seems to be flying right over some heads.
  6. Obviously because he's pitching against a top 2 offense in a very HR heavy ballpark.
  7. Pretty dumb to compare those two ABs. Of course your swing will look different when you're reaching for something low and away vs. something up high
  8. It's not "catching a break", it's control over his slider and curve. He's not hitting his spots this season.
  9. Calling this kid a 'stud' is beyond ridiculous. He was pretty good for a short stretch and now he's been terrible for a short stretch. At this point, he's looking very mediocre. A little upside at best, and a whiffing machine at worst. He's barely rosterable. The small sample size has caught up and we now know what he is.
  10. Don't base his future production on the putrid start he had to the season. He is fully expected to put up MUCH better numbers than he was "to start the season".
  11. Well at least they plunked him on the 4th AB to save him from the shame sombrero.
  12. Is there any room for him in the lineup? Or is it just as a precaution after Story tweaked something on a fly ball last night? I'm already frustrated that Daniel Murphy can't find his way into the lineup, am I going to have two guys on this team that sit most days?
  13. Only because he was hot garbage on offense.
