    That video is juicy.
  2. Off-season Closer Thread 2017/18

    What would give anyone the idea that Bradley would close in AZ? They used him in the super relief role last season and brought in two guys in the offseason with closer experience. I know people WANT Bradley to close -- a lot of us wanted him to close last year, too -- but nothing that's transpired since last year suggests AZ is thinking about that.

    If the fastball gains are legit, this might be something. His fastball was his downfall last year. I'm getting that tingling feeling inside my sweatpants.

    I came here to overreact to Spring Training numbers and chew gum. Looks like I'm just about out of...... oops, nevermind, still got plenty of gum. Carry on.

    6 more Ks in 3 hitless innings today. Let the buzz machine begin.

    Dang. Took a contrarian flyer on him since he's only 31. At the price he'll be going at if this continues I'll probably continue to do so for the next few years, too.
  8. Hence, how this discussion started. We've officially gone full circle. High fives all around!

    This drastically fails to reach the desired level of fun.
  10. Yeah, that's kind of the reason why what he's doing is so amazing. We haven't had a legitimate two-way player in MLB in like hundred years. It is the reason there is so much hype and value placed on him. It's not because he's going to perform at the plate like Trout or on the mound like Kershaw. It's the combination of two very goods instead of one great.
  11. That's fair. Perhaps I did a poor job of articulating what I'd like to see. Ideally, I'd like to start Ohtani in one positional slot in my lineup and get the points for his pitching and hitting. I don't think this is unreasonable. In fact, I think it's pretty logical. The problem is, the big platforms look at it as a lot of work for just one player and say "eff it." That's the part that chaps my bum.
  12. The difference is, he doesn't play just one position. If I start Zobrist as my 2B and he ends up playing three different positions that week I still get all of the stats he puts up. If I start Ohtani at SP and he DHs for 3 games and PHs for two others, I get none of those stats.
  13. Apologies if this has been discussed. I did a search in this thread and went back a few pages but nothing turned up. CBS has made Ohtani one player, which is nice. However, in weekly leagues, you have to decide to use him as a SP or as a hitter, you can't do both. Obviously, this is a big bag of suck as it basically makes him just a SP since his value will always be greater there than as a reduced AB hitter. So... we're looking for a new platform. Do any of the other sites allow use of Ohtani as both SP & hitter in weekly lineups? Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Man, at this point I just get nervous when I see this thread bumped to the top as I assume something bad happened. What else is there to talk about with this guy?

    Thanks. I feel like I've read this before somewhere...
