    IF it becomes the ahead of the curve move (successful and more teams adopt it) how will it affect fantasy scoring? Does it help in eliminating the QS?
  2. MLB is doing an ongoing study about why baseballs are carrying farther since the second half of 2015. The primary focus was to help denounce the juiced ball theory which it does. It also debunks the launch angle revolution to a certain degree. Makes very interesting reading https://www.mlb.com/news/mlb-report-on-baseballs-home-run-rates/c-278120310

    Sale (2.17ERA, .091Whip), Severino (2.35/.097), Nola (2.37/1.02), Corbin (2.60/.091) , and Buehler (2.38/.097)come to mind. Granted those are season numbers and except for Buehler, all are 60+ innings. Buehler with 34 innings.
  4. May Closer Thread 2018

    Looks like just a rumor that may have some legs. Would be a good trade for the Braves and bad for my Riley stash.
  5. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    What is now a dead team in a keeper league has LeMahieu, Andrus, Marte, Kiemaier, Beltre, Frazier, Kershaw, Walker, and Salazar. He had a better than average draft but we have only two D/L slots. Think I would have dropped also.
  6. Juan Soto 2018 Outlook

    Quickly skinning this thread and I think the Nats hand is being somewhat forced because of injuries. Eaton and Hendricks on the MLB level and Robles elbow injury. Talent is there with Soto and talent should win out in the end but Robles would have been the preferred call-up, if hitting, this year He hits he stays obviously even with or if Eaton comes back this year. The one that could be in danger might be Taylor who the Nats have never seemed that high on. All this is just an opinion.
  7. Paul DeJong 2018 Outlook

    Looked like it was a checked swing. They needed a quick video review to see if it actually had hit him.
  8. Ozzie Albies 2018 Outlook

    Nate (Tiny) Archibald in the NBA dominated the through the seventies. NFL had the Smurfs with the Redskins in the early eighties. Gretsky was only six feet and utterly dominated the NHL. But you are right in that baseball is the only sport where it wouldn't surprise people to see a smaller player to do well. You have Altuve, Jimmy Wynn, Joe Morgan also. The other sports have changed a lot through the years

    Worst idea yet by MLB. Money isn't everything and really doubt this gathers more viewers.
  10. 5/8 - GAME DAY THREAD

    But those fans were forced to move to New York and became Yankee fans. 😎
  11. Michael Conforto 2018 Outlook

    The only problem with that idea is next year more than likely he still won't hit LHP, play for the Mets, and have playing time issues. Like you I have him in rebuild but unless there are some tangible improvements this year or keeps CF eligibility think I am gone.
  12. New York Yankees 2018 Outlook

    Yankees are close to 197m for the opening day payroll. That 2.99m difference is what they have to work with if they want to reset the luxury tax for next year. I don't know how much/ long the contracts for Ellsbury, Gardner, and CC will affect that number but there isn't a whole lot of wiggle room. No idea about raises to current players or if anyone is going through arbitration. But if it doesn't get reset I really doubt any high priced FA sign there. Give Harper, for example, 40m a year without the reset and that is close to 60m against the cap in the next year
  13. 5/3 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Boston really getting spanked tonight. 10-3 Rangers top of the 5th. Price had nothing and the bullpen has less.
  14. Cody Bellinger 2018 Outlook

    Say he actually got the triple with no outs, the defense plays in (close game), the pitcher maybe doesn't throw the same pitches with a runner on third, there is no double play at second base and even the way you describe it you turn the lineup over without him getting doubled off second.
  15. Cody Bellinger 2018 Outlook

    Pure speculation but what might be the problem about being doubled off second was he should have been on third in the manager's mind.
