  1. Jose "Mr. 5.2" Quintana? If he's cheap, i'll float him out as a #4/5 guy, but not actively pursuing him unless he falls in my lap. 32 starts last year, average of 5.45 IP per start and 90.86 pitches. Just dances around too much, always has.
  2. No doubt about that, but it also significantly increases the pricetag for buyers (Think Archer to Pittsburgh).
  3. I agree, but they just signed him to a 4-year extension. He isn't going anywhere any time soon.
  4. Maybe. I mean maybe they value him as a super utility backup, but not enough to be an everyday starter at any 1 position? You need guys like the on a 25-man roster as well. That was kinda the other point of my first post: It's the Mets so who knows what the hell they're thinking
  5. I think he's eligible at 3 or 4 positions in Yahoo so even if he isn't behind the plate daily he will have opportunities to play all over the field for Texas (especially with Beltre gone).
  6. Round about way of saying it, but same point I was making: Whether we like McNeil or not is irrelevant if the Mets don't.
  7. As much as I like McNeil, there is obviously something that the organization sees that we're missing. You don't have a guy who breaks out and looks to be a key piece moving forward (for cheap) and then go out and get a bunch of guys that essentially push him out of a job. Then again, it's the Mets and nobody really has any idea WTF they're doing at any given time...
  8. Agree, really can't envision him being pushed out of the rotation. Who is going to beat him, Brad Peacock?
  9. Yeah it's concerning. He moves to 3B, Frazier to 1B, what happens when Alonso gets the call? Same if he plays first? I'll keep him as a cheap bench stash, but went from being plugged in as my great value 2b to a guy that might only help a couple days a week.
  10. A longterm league from HS, we created a super low-budget trophy back in the day. Went to Home Depot, bought a large ceramic pot, gray spray paint, and maroon acrylic paint. Made it sorta like the stanley cup where the champion's team name is painted on next to the year annually. It's ugliness is what makes it special. The previous year's winner paints on the new champion's name every year at our "Winter Meetings" held on Christmas Eve-Eve and hands the trophy over. *Passing of the Potato Bowl 2013
  11. Coming off an 82-79 season with almost the entire 25-man roster returning. Could be a really interesting team to watch in a loaded NL Central. Dickerson - Marte - Polanco is one of the top trios in the national league. Bell - Frazier - Moran locked in at 1b, 2b, 3b, but SS is an interesting situation. Recently acquired Erik Rodriguez (from Cleveland for Jordan Luplow and Max Moroff) is an option as is Kevin Newman, but the Pittsburgh higher-ups are probably hoping Jung Ho-Kang can be the guy holding down everyday SS responsibilities. Fantasy owners probably are as well, but I doubt it at this point. Of course all that can change if the Pirates surprise everyone and re-sign Mercer or pick up the Harrison option. Obviously Cervelli and Diaz will handle the catching duties. Taillon - Archer - Musgrove - Williams - Nova leave much to be desired. Nick Kingham was atrocious in 2018, so he can only go up from here, right? Chad Kuhl isn't an option with his blown out elbow, but I'd expect/hope to see Mitch Keller at some point. Vasquez - Crick - Kela - Rodriguez, the bullpen is the best it's been since I can remember. Thoughts from the Yinzers?
  12. I agree, but doesn't sound like that's the case: "Sam Mellinger of the Kansas City Star reports that the Royals aren't interested in trading Whit Merrifield at this time."
  13. I love him for 2019 even if he doesn't match his 2018 numbers. A lotta folks are still sleeping on him and brushing off 2017/2018 as flukes. The guy will be really cheap in comparison to the potential upside he offers. If the Royals are even improve just slightly on offense, he could see even better RBI and runs numbers in 2019.
  14. The peak of fantasy baseball excitement and only 8 games today
  15. Go Gant, Odorizzi, and Chacin!
  16. Touki, Shoe, Arch, Faria, J. James, Bearded Brett, and Montgomery on the bump for me tonight. I have never started 7 guys in a night let alone in the league final. This is gonna be a wild Tuesday.
  17. 19 multi-hit games in 57 games played including three 4-hit days and five 3-hit days. The power-speed combo we saw in the minors this year hasn't really translated, but he's been a big boost for OBP leaguers.
  18. Holland, Alcantara, James. My ERA is already toast, so time to pound counting stats.
  19. Let's go Sandstorm Alcantara and Bearded Brett Anderson. Not exactly a "dream team" playoff pitching lineup.
  20. All I needed was for him to go 1 more inning to get the CGSO last night, but I guess beggars can't be choosers. 8 Shutout IP will do just fine. Mucho Gracias Senor Wheeler!
  21. Go Wheeler, boo Severino and Taillon. Also, disappointed Bassit isn't starting today after all. Hmpf.
  22. I'm just throwing things at the wall hoping they stick. Shoemaker? Sure.
  23. Dammit Chris. 3 run bomb off Archer, Bucs now trailing.
