  1. August Closer Thread 2018

    I’m a Rondon owner, but it’s fair to speculate. 1) He’s struggling at a bad time; OAK is now right on their heels 2) They went and got a proven stud closer to solidify their bullpen. He’s there, which COULD make a decision like that easier for a manager
  2. August Closer Thread 2018

    This is from July 28. Almost a month ago after they acquired him. It only says he could see some high leverage innings. Oh, and it’s the GM talking, not the manager who actually makes the decision. I mean, maybe Pressly sees some save opps, but it’s highly unlikely with the arms they have now. But either way, posting this link is absolutely meaningless (no offense).
  3. Mallex Smith 2018 Outlook

    I’m aware. That was *part* of my point. He said “In what world is Smith stealing 60?” You said, “This world.” Then proceeded to change it to 50 (which as I point out is even a stretch).
  4. Mallex Smith 2018 Outlook

    Lol to be fair here, “around 60 (let’s say 50)” is moving the goalpost quite a bit. Also, Blackmon lead the ML with 725 PAs last season. WITH that many, Mallex paces out to 47 SBs. However, you need to be a leadoff hitter on a very good offense to get that many PAs. Rays are a bottom 3rd offense. So really there’s no reason to project him more than 40-45 at current skill level.

    Tanaka struggling with the 22nd ranked offense. Not that we should be surprised at this point.
  7. August Closer Thread 2018

    I’m not sure if you missed it but when Osuna returned, Hinch did state that Rondon was the closer. He can’t really say much more, as things change.
  8. Still no app. I don’t get the need. Just as easy to open up safari. There’s a mobile version that functions like an app. Football is different. Not as much need for custom categories, no need for minor league players, etc. I could see just wanting to use a free site. But with baseball, you either want customization or you want a pretty layout and an app (not you, but the public). Those people who have apps also have 40+ pages of complaints here. I guess for my league, we don’t need “bells & whistles,” we have unique categories (not 5 x 5), custom rules, and a deep keeper league. So again, it’s about the needs of the league. But would NEVER run a keeper/dynasty on yahoo or ESPN.

    Yeah, usually pre-game the SP announces his plans to hit the guy. This one there wasn’t an announcement, so clearly we’re just old guys who don’t like stats. Because all that makes sense.
  10. 8/15 - GAME DAY THREAD

    People who have watched baseball before can tell when a guy loses a pitch v. when he fires a fastball at a spot. I’m sorry you can’t tell the difference, but I’m not sure the gameday thread is the place for all of us to convince you.

    No one here can answer this. Hell, I don’t think their manager can answer.
  13. 8/15 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Don’t be that guy. This one was clearly intentional.
  14. Just wanted to give props (again) to onroto. Was reading something about Japanese P Yusei Kikuchi potentially signing this coming winter and wanted to double check before emailing the guys to see if they’d add him. He was already in the database and could be added today. I know each person/league has different needs. But if you’re in a deep keeper or dynasty, onroto is phenomenal.
