  1. I bet he's the kind of guy that will eat a salad and say 'look I'm eating healthy!' but upon further inspection you see that his salad is swimming in ranch dressing.
  2. I think they are just being a little too prideful because they were hyping him up a lot in the pre season and don't want to admit that Godley is garbage. He was a 4 era with a whip around 1.30 in the second half of last year, so this isn't quite a surprise to see how he is performing right now.
  3. I think that is the original plan, for him to return to the majors tomorrow.
  4. Not really. Holding on to him means you are likely passing up better guys on the waiver wire that pop up during the season. He just plain awful. Walks everyone in the walk and teams are not falling for his curveball anymore.
  5. 2nd homer in as many nights. He looks like he will come back and start mashing. Just wish he learned not to eat so freaking much, every time I'm watching video of him this year I think to myself 'My god, he doesn't fit his uniform anymore.'
  6. I believe he is gonna be a two-starter next week.
  7. I'm just telling you how it seems to be with him.
  8. I'm slightly concerned. This is kind of deja vu with the 2016 season. Started hot out of the gates in April and then went into slump after he got the barry bonds treatment. I really think that once Murphy comes back that Harper and the Nationals are gonna get hot.
  9. He might play in extended spring training games tomorrow if he feels better. this is just a minor bump in the road to his recovery.
  10. He's probably not gonna hit 30 homers this year?
  11. That sentiment is really quite overrated. You still need useful guys in the regular season that are gonna put up good stats to get you into the playoffs. Unless you can land something that will actually help you in the playoffs it does not really matter. Plus in late september you are most likely going to be streaming more pitchers because it becomes a crap shoot trying to figure out when managers are planning to rest their starters or bump their start day.
  12. The cardinals stated they wanted him to be limited to around 100 innings. So if he comes back right away as a starter that means only 3 months of starts and then to the bullpen in September. But nothing is set in stone.
  13. As lando Calrissian once said, "Here goes nothing..."
  14. He was cruising the first two innings. The first inning he had good control and was attacking the strike zone. From there on he seemed to get ahead of the hitters and then throw 3-4 consecutive balls. Seemed like he was trying to be a little too cute and trying to get the hitters to chase out of the zone. His first two k's were on foul tips if I'm not mistaken. I wish he just trusted his stuff and threw more strikes.
  15. Is this guy toast? His peripheral stats so far don't seem to indicate that he has been unlucky this year, but plain bad. thoughts?
  16. Just slow start to the year. Last year he started slow due to injuries and then went into beast mode the final two months. Definitely a buy low candidate
  17. Might move up the lineup for the next couple of days while Cruz is recovering from hbp on the foot as well. I agree were are witnessing a breakout. My only knock on him is the lack of walks, but who doesn't like a guy that can hit between .265-.280 and give you 30 something homers.
  18. I've already dumped him for Ryon Healy for quite some time.
  19. I really hope they just DL him. I drafted him knowing full well he would play 130 games or less.
  20. Daniel Murphy (knee) has reported to the Nationals' spring training complex in West Palm Beach, Florida and could soon begin playing in games. Murphy joined up with the Nationals in late April to participate in team workouts and appeared to be on the cusp of activation from the disabled list, but he couldn't get over the hump with some of his running drills. He's apparently feeling better now after slowing things down for a week. Still, it's probably going to be late May, or sometime thereafter, before we see his name in Washington's starting lineup. - per rotoworld.
  21. So if he is only going to throw 100 innings he likely just pitches June, July, August and then to the Bullpen in September??
  22. Hello? Something happened since yesterday?
  23. Anyone worried about starting him in weekly leagues with the sore hip?
