    Unless you're basically sitting pretty at 1 or 2 already, I wouldn't hold Severino. He hasn't begun to throw, and his best case scenario is coming back after the break. A single setback when he starts throwing again and you're looking at an August return to the rotation or maybe even relief work ROS. 

     

    I'm actually sitting 6th in a 10 team league. I'm counting on severino for the second half for a playoff run.


  2. Roster currently looks like this:

    C- Willians Astudillo

    1- Luke Voit

    2- Robinson Cano

    3- Mike Moustakas

    SS- Ketel Marte

    OF- Bryce Harper

    OF- Rhys Hoskins

    OF- David Dahl

    Utl- Nelson Cruz

    Bn- Daniel Murphy

    Bn- Josh Donaldson

    Bn- Aaron Judge

     

    SP- Gerrit Cole

    SP- German Marquez

    SP- Cole Hamels

    SP- Martin Perez

    RP- Max Fried

    RP- Sonny Gray

    BN- Brad Peacock

    BN- Kenta Maeda

    BN- Corbin Martin

    BN- Luis Severino

     

    I was kind of leaning towards getting rid of Donaldson.

    Wasn't really implying that. It just seems like he's one of the lesser talked about players on here right now out of the ones off to a great start, where in previous years he was talked about quite a bit.

    Oh well.  No big deal.  Just thought about it after seeing he had another good game today.

     

    I didn't mean any offense. This is a little off topic, but I always see on tv or here when people say 'he is underrated' or 'not talked about enough'. His play on the field does the talking, we don't need a lot of people to talk about him to acknowledge that he is good. He's good and he's gonna put up huge numbers this year.

    I don't own him, but surprising Hoskins isn't getting more love (as in more than 2 pages) given his really good start to the season.  Another big game today...

     

    I don't know what that means, should we shower praise on every player just for the hell of it? Everyone knows he is good and there isn't much else to say.

    Is this version of Kike for real Or just hot right now? Does he normally go through stretches like this? Is there pt for him?

     

    He’s real and he’s spectacular.

    Gosh.

    Whats up with this guy?

    He plays the whole game and gets ZERO At-Bats.

    Cause he had a bunch of walks.... would you rather he swung at pitches out of the zone to go 0-4 just to have official at bats?

    Y! Rankings have him way down at 123. Seems like a no brainer at that price, right? Even 120 innings of his should return value at that point I would suspect?

    He should be pitching closer to 160-170 innings if there are no setbacks in his recovery

    anyone notice a stance change today? looked real nice. less moving parts to his swing

     

     

    At first I was gonna say 'it looks exactly as it always has...' but after seeing his two homers on mlb.com again, his swing looked a little more quiet, if that made any sense.

    Wow, very surprised at the comments above.  Burnes, Peralta, Woodruff in order for me both short & long term. 

     

    Everyone is entitled to their opinions, but honestly Woodruff probably has the best stuff out of the three. Peralta has very little control and has days where he'll walk everyone in the park. Burnes will probably be decent, but Woodruff really seemed to figure things out last year coming out of the pen and he was pretty good in the playoffs (12.1 innings, 3 er, 20/3 k/bb).

    I think the Braves are just being cautious and easing him along this spring. Donaldson said in an interview about a week or two ago that this is the first spring training he's been healthy and feels good since the calf injury occurred in 2017. He added that he's progressing well and was just going to do it the right way and not try to rush anything. I think they may give him some days of rest during the beginning of the season to not only take it slow with him but also to get Camargo some ABs. 

     

    I would take it with a grain of salt that he says he is fully healthy, he wouldn’t admit that his body feels like 💩. But i hope you are right, the season is right around the corner and usually they ramp up the players activity, not have them sit three games straight.
