  1. Johnny Cueto 2018 Outlook

    I am starting him because I ride or die with my boy but a rational argument on the side of rolling with him today is his career day/night split. 2.76/1.16 day vs 3.63/1.19 night. Cubs are of course scary no matter the conditions but Johnny just loves pitching in natural daylight.

    I get that, but those are the reasons from an organizational standpoint. Also it doesn’t really matter that we as fantasy players what guys “bring to the table” the reality is that teams can get more from a player if they are on a hot streak and there’s no way for a guy to heat up on the bench.

    There are a few reasons that the Reds are juggling their 4 primary outfielders. Winker is not great against lefties. He is a pretty bad fielder. The Reds probably want to trade Adam Duvall or Billy Hamilton and benching them would suppress value. Scott Schebler’s all around game is just as good as Winker’s.

    Over the last month his batting average is .309 and his slugging percentage is .500 So.... yes
  5. Eugenio Suarez 2018 Outlook

    Not sure why he was double switched out last night, but he's back in the lineup this evening.
  6. Jose Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    Arenado’s floor might not be quite as high if the Rox don’t sign him in the off-season. I’m not spending a 3 pick on a guy who might be traded mid season and has a career 267/323/475 line away from Coors. J-Ram>Arenado for sure.
  7. Miguel Cabrera 2018 Outlook

    Just left the game. Injured his left arm following through on a swinging strike. Seemed to be grabbing his elbow. Poor guy just seems to keep breaking down one body part at a time.
  8. Willy Adames 2018 Outlook

    Well here is his BBREF minor league totals. You can claim he's a finely tuned utility man but it's pretty clear to me he is a SS. That was called up to play 2B because of Didi. Maybe your tacking on a few fall league games or something... Like I said, splitting hairs. This is either just trolling or in denial.

    Well, he should undoubtedly dominate all the Dominicans and Puerto Ricans.
  10. Willy Adames 2018 Outlook

    Adames played 11 games at 2B last year. Torres played a total of 14 games at 2B in the minors. Machado played 4 games at 3B. Turner played 7 games at 2B. Moncada played 16 games at 3B. So any real difference is pretty much just splitting hairs. Occasionally teams bring up top prospects to play unfamiliar positions. I'm not disagreeing that it might not be in their best interest or that it is not very common, but it happens.
  11. Willy Adames 2018 Outlook

    Well, not exactly without precedence. Machado, Turner, and Moncada were all called up to not play their natural position. Right now Gleyber Torres is at 2B.
  12. Willy Adames 2018 Outlook

    I'd put the odds of Adames seeing some time at 2B at 50/50. While I don't think they want to play him anywhere other than SS, it just seems too likely that they will need to showcase Hechavarria coming off the DL to prove he's healthy for trade value while not wanting to take AB's away from Adames. It just sort of depends on whether the Rays feel like Adames will be more negatively by riding the pine or shifting to the other side of the diamond for a week. Plus I think it's fair to say that the Rays have upped the craziness of their organizational philosophy this year...
  13. June Closer Thread 2018

    Do we really want to memify a closer with a fictional character whose best moment is a massive explosion?
  14. 6/7 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Absolutely. I'm not watching, so just curious how his control and composure looks.
  15. 6/7 - GAME DAY THREAD

    This kid was walking 2.2 per 9 and walks 3 in his first 2 innings of his debut. Obviously he's being smacked around but is he also perhaps just nervous?
