  1. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    Went to bed thinking I had barely survived my first round matchup with a tie in my favor. Woke up this morning and found out I lost to a score change giving Acuna credit for a SB Saturday night instead of defensive indifference. To make things worse, heading in to Sunday nights game I had a 8-6 edge and was up by 17 BA points, 3 runs and 1 SB according to Yahoo. He had Bogaerts (previously 1-10 vs Keuchal) and I played Springer (previously 6-11 vs Porcello). I figured that even if Springer had a bad night and Bogaerts a good one to flip the BA disparity I would still win in a 7-7 tie and he would provide me with Run and SB insurance. It was a pretty sure thing since the odds of Bogaerts stealing or scoring 3 runs is very slim. Bogaerts goes 4/4, Springer goes 1-5 to flip the BA. Acuna gets the SB stat correction and I lose 6-7. Had I known before the beginning of the Sunday night game that we were tied in steals and it was 7-6 I probably would have played conservatively and benched Springer in which case I would have ended up with my BA lead intact .2705 to my opponents .2702 So freaking sour...
  2. September Closer Thread 2018

    Has there been any indication as to the Atlanta bullpen pecking order once Vizcaino returns? Has he been gone too long and Minter held his own or is this one of those "players should lose their role due to injury" sort of things? Haven't watched enough Braves this year to know what sort of management style Snitker has about these things.
  3. Most Trusted Closer (Other than Mo) of All-Time

    I wonder how Hoyt Wilhelm would fare in today’s game. I remember when I was a kid leafing through my baseball encyclopedia and concluding he was the greatest relief pitcher of all time. Everything is so different now though with tape and such that maybe a lot of his success was just the novelty of the knuckle.

    He took two walks and stole a base today. Fine by me as long as his strikeout rate isn't spiking.

    At this point he’s a drop for roto but I am still holding in H2H. He’s a very streaky hitter and if he gets hot on the right week it could be a big difference maker.

    It's a definite pain micromanaging the catching position but in the end if you win a roto cat by 1 stat point squeezing every last game played can win you a league. Obviously if carrying a second catcher is preventing you from reaching stats at another position it is probably better to stack depth there. Ward has been a godsend for my Posey team though.

    Lined up to face lefties @ Coors tonight and Thursday and then Hill, Kershaw and Wood on the weekend. Considering his .336/.393/.736 vs LHP this could be a really good week for Christian.

    What I really want to know is if we’ll ever be so lucky to see another Dave Magadan. The ultimate high BB low K slow man. That dude was such an awesome player he got specifically featured in Little Big League right alongside Randy and Jr.

    Harper was hit by an 82 mph curveball... So, pretty much no way in hell.
  10. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    Yeah, I love how everyone is losing their minds over the Urena/Acuna thing but no one shrugged when Madson threw a 94mph heater at Votto's knee. One serious injury could forever sink the possibility of JV getting to the hall. As a Reds fan and Votto dynasty owner this is really rough to watch. I've always thought Todd Helton was a great comp to Votto and now sadly it looks like the nagging injury breakdown is mirroring Helton's as well.
  11. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    This is a pretty dramatic assessment. I think it's a pretty big assumption that the calendar turning over is the cause of a 150 point slugging drop. He's having a bad year and all the reasons for it may not be known. There have been plenty of guys who play through nagging injuries and have bad years. There is definitely something not right with 2018 Joey but I still wouldn't bet against 2019 JV.

    Stream against the Mets? Sure! ROS? No way. Maybe I’m just jaded from when I believed he would become a solid middle of the rotation guy but at this point I think he is best case scenario just a back end 5 inning start kind of guy.
  13. 2018 MLB Trade Rumors and Deadline Thread

    I definitely don’t blame non Reds fans for not paying a lot of attention to Adam Duvall’s in depth stats but he actually has a career best 9.2% walk rate this year. Possibly the Braves just think his discipline has taken a step forward this season his terrible babip will normalize.
  14. 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.
