    Some of those leagues are drafted and dead. Some are 6 team leagues of middle school kids. Guys drafted in the first few rounds and are still good are the only ones near 100%.

    How old is Blackmon? How is he doing this year? Is he running as much as he used to? Im not sure what mentioning last season’s rankings (check the first two pages of Blackmon thread. I was the lone voice arguing against him at 3 THIS season) has to do with how people will be ranked next season.

    I don’t think you’re paying attention (don’t worry, most aren’t). From June 19 last year through today, JRam is hitting: .302, 115 runs, 40 HR, 99 RBI, 20 SB And he’s just 26. Who are you taking over him? EDIT: Saw you mentioned a few. Freeman and Blackmon are laughable.

    8 IP, 2 ER, over 100 pitches. Manager decides to start him in the 9th. 2 singles and an out later he’s pulled. Tapera allows both of Happ’s runs to score before getting the save. 8.1, 4 ER.

    “Other teams have gotten completely ripped off in the past, selling off quality bats for a 1-inning arm.” I guess you guys are assuming GMs are still as dumb, or perhaps dumber (as mentioned, prospects different than already in the majors). I’m working under the assumption that a functioning brain will learn from mistakes.

    Nah it was some in house discipline

    I’m seeing Altuve out, but other two correct.

    Not sure where to put this, but...

    He is what he is. I think it’s foolish to try to read hot and cold streaks, but if your team could use a .245 hitter who will likely hit 20+ HRs rest of season, then grab him.

    Save for a few HOFers, bullpen arms can be elite for a couple years and then completely fall off. I’d bet good money as great as he’s been, that Hand is not nearly as good in 2 years. It just happens. Also, considering the true value of a 1-inning arm (as Hand’s 3.6 career WAR shows), these guys just aren’t worth that much in real baseball. Anyway, probably a discussion for another thread. I don’t believe finding guys who can get 3 outs should be particularly valuable and laugh at teams who overpay for these guys each year. Neither of us will likely convince the other.

    If I was SD and I realized we weren’t winning any time soon and I was trading away a guy who pitches 1 inning at a time? Yeah, I’d deal him for less.

    Yeah, I’m not sure Hand is going anywhere lol

    No worries. He’s solid. But it wasn’t a great matchup. I think we all remember the Favre game after his dad died, but not the literal hundreds that come back from bereavement and don’t perform like superheroes.

    In case there was any doubt

    He switched to the 9 hole TODAY. He was hitting leadoff, then 2nd. So all the “fluff” was before today’s lineup. We’ll see where he ends up.
