  1. Oakland reliever Lou Trivino has 7 wins, 4 saves, 50 Ks, and crazy good ratios. He is ranked 50th overall on the season, and 9th over the last month. In other words, he’s been better than pretty much anyone you’re currently rostering, and he is available in 70% of leagues. He’s pitching in high leverage situations for a surprisingly good team, and he didn’t even come up until about a month into the season. I’ll happily take 14 wins, 8 saves, 100 Ks from a reliever; any chance he gets there?

    Are you saying you can predict Bundy? Because he had nasty blowups vs Min, TB, LAA, and KC. All easy opponents. And he had great starts vs Bos, Cle, and Hou. He’s a crapshoot. Either he has his good stuff and he pitches well, or he gets blown up.
  3. Dylan Bundy 2018 Outlook

    Wow, no comments on this latest blow up? Does that mean everyone is out on him? i didn’t start him this time, and given his inconsistency, bad team, bad HR tendency, bad ballpark, and rough schedule (too many games against NYY and BOS), I think I need to drop him. Again...

    As noted earlier, he isn’t going to play every day. He only got 17 ABs in the last week; thats pretty low - about 1/2 as many ABs as some of the guys on my roster. It looks like he will sit quite a bit, and pinch hit quite a bit as well (but I bench him when he doesn’t start, so those pinch hit HRs don’t help me). Unless he can learn to play 1B (please please please!), he’s gonna be a hard guy to roster (at least in shallow leagues...)

    At least he got SOME outs this time...

    So it looks like he will make at least 2 starts in the minors. The good news is that (according to TrueBlueLA) once he is back he should be good to go for the rest of season without restriction. That said, the injury is a little scary, and, due to some other injuries, I am going to need some innings before he gets back. Would it be nuts to drop him for one of the other young guns that are crushing it now (Eflin, Peralta, Kingham, Beiber, etc)?

    Any innings concerns with him? He is still young (24) and because he was injured for a good part of the last 2 years it looks like he hasnt pitched many innings at all...
  8. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    You dont get an extra spot, you have to activate him and put him on your active roster. So, no free spot, just weird because he will still be listed as DL but he will be in your active lineup. It IS messy for sure....
  9. Shohei Ohtani 2018 Outlook

    For what its worth, I asked Yahoo customer care how they were going to deal with this. They said “both” Ohtanis stay on the DL until they both can play. In other words, when Ohtani comes back as a hitter, you can take put him in your lineup, and you will get the stats he accrues, even tho technically he will still be on the DL. Confusing I know, but if thats really how they do it it means you can play Ohtani the hitter as soon as he becomes active and still keep Ohtani the pitcher on the DL...

    The Doggers like to play with pitcher innings. Anyone worried that they are going to skip him, DL him, and/or bullpen him to the point it affects his value going forward?
  11. Jose Bautista 2018 Outlook

    Don’t look now but he is top 10 in AVG Exit Velo and top 20 in Hard Hit. And that includes the slow start...
  12. John Hicks 2018 Outlook

    And he’s gone 1 for 13 with zeros across the board since I posted this 😒
  13. Patrick Corbin 2018 Outlook

    Wow, I put myself in analysis paralysis, so I just left him in there. So glad I did! Great start...
  14. Patrick Corbin 2018 Outlook

    Also, just looked at some stats on Pitt. They’re way better than I thought offensively; by OPS they are 11th best overall, 8th best at home, and 6th best vs LHP. On the other hand, Corbin has generally been better on the road, and Pitt plays as a pitchers park - 18th by Runs and 20th by HR. In other words, I have now overthought this, and I have no idea what to do 🤓
