    Wowww Carpenter... i had the lower waiver priority when he was dropped right before he turned things around
  2. Ryon Healy 2018 Outlook

    I think they're about to phase out Healy... possibly getting sick of the empty power and -0.5 WAR. Cano has been taking grounders at 1B and they plan to keep Gordon at 2B. And they just called up Vogelbach who is once again destroying AAA. Maybe he'll get a shot to prove himself here, at least he can take a walk, unlike Ryon.

    And to boot, the Twins could be selling some major pieces in the next couple of weeks

    And that's another problem with owning a stud closer/set-up man on a bad team at this time of the year - if he's worth owning, he's a major trade candidate.

    Hmm I have a fear of starting anyone against the Brewers, and of starting an SP coming off a bullpen appearance.... but they are without Thames and Braun, and they do rank 24th in OPS against LHP...

    Gohara threw another stinker in AAA and Fried threw 4.2 hitless innings with 6 Ks, so it looks like these next few starts should be going to Fried.

    For fantasy purposes, if this throws him off his game just go grab Burnes. I feel like he could take over his role, just without the gaudy K totals.

    Hm I just saw that now... guess we'll see if it's worth holding onto these guys in the coming week. Only 10 weeks left, have to be pretty ruthless in who to cut and who to hold.
  11. July Closer Thread 2018

    Of course I grabbed both Cishek and Edwards... oh well, it's only for the short week. The report I read on Morrow said he should be back quickly, his DL was back-dated to before the ASB.

    One thing I can say for all Indians starters, their remaining schedule is cupcake.
  13. Willson Contreras 2018 Outlook

    They're lining him up to play all the afternoon games this week... you know the whole 'day game after a night game' thing for catchers. But it might be a good thing, he's one of these guys with sizeable Day/Night splits this year: Slugging .543 in the day (39 games), and only .365 at night (43 games). Last season it was .595 vs .421
  14. July Closer Thread 2018

    The earlier usage of Allen contributed to some pedestrian numbers, but if you're looking at him lately in comparison to Hand, he had one massive stinker against the Reds and then gave up a solo shot to a Yankee (not shocking) but otherwise he's had more clean outings than Hand in the last several weeks. Hand has really hit a rough patch lately, and I wouldn't be surprised if it's from over-use. He's pitched much more than the average closer the last few years, and you wonder if the Pads knew they couldn't keep him around so they got all that they could out of his arm in the meantime.
  15. Fantasy Strategy Thread

    I'm just noticing now how drastic some of my players Day / Night splits are... I'm thinking we need to pay more attention to this. We're always looking at Home/Away and RHP/LHP, but I don't think we value Day/Night equally... the sample size is the same.
