    Did you want to start him @TEX anyway?
  2. Jose Peraza 2018 Outlook

    I mean, it doesn’t appear you even know what you’re talking about at all. Peraza has only one month where he hit under .288 (May). Peraza has had no less than 3 SBs in any month, no more than 6. 4/month puts you on a ~25 SB pace for a season. Has been between 14-17 runs each month but one. This consistency, along with the little extra pop in the 2nd half, has resulted in a top 5 overall 2B. So your narrative is completely false.

    Rich Hill the only one I remember to get Ks with offs peed pitches
  5. Marco Gonzales 2018 Outlook

    I originally had him in this week, then read they’re going to limit him to 75 pitches v. SD. If you need a W or QS it’ll be more difficult. Just FYI

    Winning your league is letting others overreact to one season. Letting Mookie fall was NEVER the smart play. I said it here. I said it in the Mookie thread. I said it in the Blackmon thread.

    That’s passed. Aug 31 was deadline.

  9. Greatest Season by a Starting Pitcher

    I think the “Nolan Ryan got robbed for some CY Youngs/No he didn’t” has nothing to do with the greatest pitching season ever. The pre-1960 stuff is of little interest to me. In many ways, the game was different (dead ball, segregated, etc.). So here’s another vote for 2000 Pedro. Opponents’ hitting line against him that year- .167/.213/.259. Yes, that’s a .472 OPS lol. 1997 Clemens and 1972 Ron Guidry also deserve some love. Also Maddux, even though he didn’t have the elite K numbers. Probably 1995 is his best.

    Oh wow. I’m in a weekly league and rosters lock 1st game on Monday. Didn’t know that was an option 🤷🏽‍♂️

    Weekly leaguers? Do you know it’s Tuesday and the week started yesterday?

    Maybe not Madson
  13. August Closer Thread 2018

    Read the post immediately above yours. It’s an accurate assessment of the HOU situation. Whether he’s “droppable” is both league and team specific, and really can’t be answered by anyone but you.

    3 straight games, Britton save, Betances save, DRob save. Haha. There is no way of reading into any of this. My best guess if all 3 are available: Betances is used against middle of the lineup. Might be 7th, 8th, or 9th Britton is used when multiple LHH are coming up. Might be 7th, 8th, or 9th. DRob is used around these two scenarios. Might be 7th, 8th, or 9th. Good luck.
  15. Justin Upton 2018 Outlook

    I went looking yesterday. Cut finger on wine glass. 4 stitches. But saw nothing about potential return.
  16. Jakob Junis 2018 Outlook

    Nope he goes Tuesday, then they have an off day Thursday. So Junis will not go again until CLE Monday.
  17. August Closer Thread 2018

    My guess: As the 8th was starting it was a one run game, and Trout and Ohtani were due up in the 8th. Osuna was going to be used against their best hitters. Astros pushed the lead to 5, Osuna was already warmed up and they went with it. Truly looks like Osuna/Rondon will split moving forward.

    SD is 21st in OPS v. LHP SD is 28th in home OPS I may give him another whirl.

    JA collapsing early against this pathetic lineup. Because baseball.

    Ha! Wasn’t sure who would get the reference.
