    Just one of those weird lost seasons guys have sometimes. I have to think he's been playing through something all year. Kind of unusual for a guy to just lose it at age 30. Might be worth a late'ish flier in next year's drafts.

    Yea, tripped over second base and turned an ankle. Had to be helped off. Pretty clumsy looking play. Great metaphor for Ms season. And man, Dee Gordon just sucks.
  3. 8/3 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Woke up this morning with pink eye. Anyone know who I talk to about starting for the Mets?
  4. August Closer Thread 2018

    Something going on in SD? Yates just dropped in my league.
  5. Couldn't find a thread on him. Who is this guy? Quite the debut. 10 RBIs in 2 games. Figure there's ABs to be had in Anaheim. Anything to see here for the majority of us in the barron wasteland of catcher?

    Odd that he would start taking his helmet and batting gloves off if he just thought it was a foul ball?

    Boy, Martinez in LF would be a negative WAR player. At that point, you might just be better off just trotting Rajai Davis & Tyler Naquin out there. Or, at the very least, there has got to be a dozen players available they would rather acquire.

    "Pretty damn good" is probably overselling it a bit. .299 OBP. He has a 112 wRC+, so he's been "good", not great. Martinez would be an upgrade there, but I don't know that adding another "DH only" guy would be on the top of Houston's priority list.

    No way. I could see Seattle as an option if the plan were to just play him at 1B this year, since they have a butcher there in Healy anyway, then move Martinez to DH next year & let Cruz walk. I don't really see that happening though. I think they want to resign Cruz.

    In Cleveland, are you moving EE to 1B and just benching Alonso? I really don't know that Martinez is enough of an upgrade over Alonso to justify playing either Martinez or EE at 1B. And in Houston, just benching Gattis? I mean, yea, Martinez would probably be an upgrade there, Gattis hasn't necessarily been a liability though.

    Or maybe some package that includes Merrifield and/or Moustakas.

    JD Martinez has 55 games at DH and 39 in the OF. So, "majority" would be the...correct way to put it.
  13. Robinson Cano 2018 Outlook

    Prior to being suspended his 150 game pace was .287 (.385 OBP, .826 OPS), 92 Rs, 88 RBIs. Yes, only on pace for 16, 17 HRs, but those counting stats and the triple slash line will still play at 2B in most formats.

    I was gonna say, Ibanez in LF late in his career was clown shoes bad. Rickie Weeks in LF, albeit for a short time, was scary bad as well.

    Or, it could be that Gyorko is a passably good defender and has an .409 OBP in July.
