  1. Was digging around a bit on the Brooks baseball sight and noticed that his changeup comes from a different release point than his FB and Curve. I’m wondering if that’s maybe something teams have picked up on? Haven’t looked to see if batters are hitting the change or just laying off it. Could be nothing, just something I noticed.
  2. Why? Pena struck out the side, can certainly pitch multiple innings. It’s not like you brought in Mariano Rivera to close the game out. They brought in Just Anderson, not exactly a sure thing. Not saying you’re wrong but what’s the big deal?
  3. Why didn’t they just leave Pena in?!
  4. Is Pena starting games next week or are they sticking with an opener again and using him as a “primary”? He should be lined up to go twice next week regardless.
  5. Everybody wants the Paddocks but without taking a chance on the Gallens it’s tough to just fall into a Paddock. He is more than likely not an ace. There are actually very few aces in the league with regards to how many starters there actually are.
  6. No need to go over league specifics. Xander is valuable hitting in that lineup.If you want Segura over him that’s fine.
  7. He is currently ranked #59 in my H2H. So that’s pretty good. And his 3 year average is as follows; .285/18HR/85rbi/94runs/12sb and 37doubles. what a loser!
  8. I’m giving it another week. Nova, Giolito, Lopez, Banuelas, Montas and Fiers on tap this week. If he can’t handle that, then I’m worried!
  9. It is tough to get really excited about a guy sitting 88-92 unless he has multiple + secondary offerings which he does not. There is some deception in the delivery so that helps a bit. As far as the command thing you asked about. He has good if not plus control, and that’s why he doesn’t walk a lot of guys. But that doesn’t necessarily point to really good command. Command is putting the ball where you want in the strike zone, not just merely putting it in the strike zone. This is all just my opinion, nobody crucify me please.
  10. I believe Josh Van Meter was mentioned in the “deep sleepers” thread last year.
  11. What defies logic is not having your best hitter come to the plate as many times as possible!
  12. What are talking about? I never said he doesn’t have “stuff” left and I never said I didn’t want him. I own him and I started him yesterday. I merely said if you are getting barrelled at a high rate and giving up the an astronomical amount oh hard contact, there’s a good chance that the babip isn’t pure bad luck.I certainly don’t expect him to finish with a .600 babip. I’ve owned him for years in multiple leagues. I understand what Cookie is.
  13. While I get what you’re saying I’m going to slightly disagree with you about the babip being solely attributed to bad luck. Before tonight’s game he was giving up hard contact at almost 60%. That’s crazy high. And he was being barrelled up at about 23%, also crazy high. So what tonyspcu was saying is quite valid. He was getting smoked when he did give up contact. When you get hit that hard, you’re babip is going to be huge.
  14. I didn’t see much of said debacle last night but I looked at the Baseball Savant page and it didn’t look like he was missing horribly. There were definitely calls that didn’t go his way but when you are struggling to find the zone you don’t get calls. I think there is cause for concern but we should give it a few games before jumping off a bridge. Unfortunately I’m not sure the next start will be a lot better. You know the Brewers are going to make him find the plate. And when he does they will make him pay if he doesn’t have his A game.
  15. He throws to the best catcher in the world. I think they can find a way to sequence his pitches in order to give him his best chance at success.
  16. YES Network says he is tabbed for Sunday start. And I will now be moving on.
  17. He isn’t starting the WC game. Move on.
  18. They have to win the WC game to get game 1 and 5 in Boston.
  19. Isn’t Severino slated for the Sunday start? I know the Yanks stated that Tanaka and Severino were being considered for the WC game but I just don’t see how Severino could be ran out there with any confidence considering his play of late. Look at what the A’s did to him the last time they played. Yikes! Imo they go with Happ in the WC game.
  20. Anybody know what the Yankees have planned for their starters this week?! Set was supposed to go tonight and Saturday but I see they are going with a bullpen game tonight. Tough to set a weekly lineup at this time of year!
