  1. Vladdy needs to find a slump buster tonight...stat!
  2. It's clear you don't follow the Dodgers closely. The heavy matchups/platooning approach was just done last year because they had so many good bats to keep fresh. This year, the only true platoon is Joc Pederson. Bellinger is without a doubt an everyday starter, either in OF or 1B, and will be all season.
  3. Did you mean to post this in the Early Season Overreaction Thread?
  4. On the broadcast last night, they said LF will be the only true platoon this season, per Dave Roberts. Last night was probably just wanting to get Freese some early action.
  5. Joe Kelly sucks. Overreaction or statement of fact?
  6. Drop Garrett Hampson because he didn't get the Opening Day start
  7. Criminally underpaid forever? Harper made $21.6M this year. Using your analogy, it was more like he was already making $120K, got an offer of $180K, but hopes to make $200K. Hardly insulting.
  8. Wonder why you didn't use Soto or Acuna as your examples for being "rushed"? Hmm...
  9. No, he wasn't pinch hit for. It was a double-switch when Axford was brought in.
  10. Oh, come on, nobody threatened to send him down. Roberts just answered a question asked by a reporter.
  11. I agree. As an Acuna and Vlad Jr owner, I admit I'm guilty of it myself. I thought Gleyber would just be bench support for me this year with hopes for keeper value down the road, but he just keeps producing. Pleasantly surprised!
  12. Extra base hits compared to K's is one stat that's been thrown around. He's now up to 23:13 in that one!
  13. If by "a**" you mean "excellent manager", then I agree.
  14. Tucker hit a 3-run HR off Darvish today. Hopefully Ender gets going soon...
  15. Looks like the catcher thought it was a pop up, lol!
  16. Just trying to be optimistic. 1B is one of the easier positions to backfill. If there's another 1B on your roster, then it opens up other positions with better options to pull someone off the waiver wire.
  17. If you have Bench, CI or UTIL spots, then his replacement should already be on your roster. 1B is deep enough to carry two all season if there are any extra spots to put them in. If not, then it sure is a tough break (pun intended). Now would be a good time for EE to start hitting!
  18. Seems like he's already adjusting. Doesn't seem overmatched at the plate at all. After the first couple of games, I was a little worried, but he's legit.
  19. This new 10-day DL is going to lead to a lot more DL stints for lesser injuries like this. Same with Jackie Bradley Jr. - minor injury but DL anyway.
