  1. Hoyer isn't in love with him like Cutler was.
  2. I had a vivid dream that he goes for 215 yards and 2 TD's this week.
  4. Of course. Why would i keep a dead man on my active roster. Trying to win not garner likes.
  5. WTH ESPN. They already deleted him from the player pool. Maybe wait till next season. Sure made enough money off his death with all your articles. Was going to pick him back up after the season, if for nothing else, to remember what my team looked like for most of the season. Tisk Tisk ESPN.
  6. The person i was replying to was implying that someone else should feel responsible for his death. It was Jose's decision to go out on a boat at 3 in the morning with whoever. Doesn't mean he did anything wrong, but he is 100% responsible for being there.
  7. I sure did like watching him pitch. Snagged him in the middle of my 2015 draft and held him for 2016. I thought the guys stuff was 2nd to only Kershaw, and there was never a doubt in my mind he was going to get back to that eventually. Watching Jose Day with the handful of guys in his thread last year is something i'll always remember. Last start of his i caught was against the Phillies earlier this year, had it working, struck out 8 of the first 9 batters. The guy was something special, and most could tell from watching him. Had a lot of big games in his future. Shame. Jose Day Bour follow's Jose's solo shot with a 3 run homer to give him the lead and eventual win.
  8. Shouldn't be. The guy is responsible for his own actions. Just an unfortunate situation.
  9. I don't believe so. I think what it comes down to is the question of "when does the pitcher's performance end: when he leaves the mound, or when he leaves the game". I think it's when he leaves the game (or the game ends, as in your example). Here's a question - and a convoluted example to follow - that i think illustrates it. Can a relief pitcher record 2 holds in the same game? Example: Let's say it's a 1-0 game, relief pitcher comes in. He allows the tying baserunner to reach and is then moved to LF for a new relief pitcher. New RP allows the tying run to score and finishes out the inning. In the bottom half of the inning, the offense retakes the lead. At the start of the next inning, original RP is moved back from LF to the pitching mound and pitches a scoreless inning. In that example, both times that he came to the mound, the situation qualified for a hold. So would you give him 2 holds in the same game? If, instead of throwing the scoreless inning, the same thing happened again. Would you give him 3 holds in the same game? I don't think so. I would think the proper scoring would be to consider his entire time in the game as 1 appearance, and not award him anything due to the lead being relinquished. I think that establishes it as when the pitcher leaves the game, not the mound. So in your example, my take would be since he didn't leave the game before it ended, he would not qualify for a hold. Here's an interesting snipit i found on this while researching: "Via my unofficial Baseball-Reference Play Index count, there have been 42 instances of pitchers playing the outfield in the past 40 seasons (starting in 1977). I counted 12 such instances dating back to 2007. By comparison, there were only three from 1994 through 2004, though for the '77–93 period, it's a rare season that did not feature such an occurrence." Source - Apparently Whitey Herzog was famous for this.
  10. Never new a save and a hold from the same pitcher was possible. I was looking at the boxscore and they credited Gearrin with just a save. ESPN fantasy gave him both a hold and a save. MLB rulebook rule 9.19 pg.135 talks about saves. Requirement D is worded as "he enters the game". So imagining he came into a 5-0 game, records an out, then goes to left field while someone else loads the bases. If he comes back in, my interpretation would be that it's not a save situation, even though the current situation qualifies, because it's "when he enters the game". So I don't see how a hold and save decision is valid. Additionally, i'm not sure where you'd go to find the official definitions of a hold since it's not an official MLB stat. But the wikipedia page that talks about it has the last requirement as "[the pitcher] leaves the game before it has ended without his team having relinquished the lead at any point and does not record a save." So I think MLB got it right and not the fantasy sites. Very interesting situation though.
  11. It means he'll miss his connection and have to call in sick on Monday.
  12. Braden Shipley.
  13. Something has stunk about this injury from the get go. Definitely not an ankle sprain whatever it is. Marlins manager Don Mattingly says he doesn't know exactly what is going on with Bour (ankle) and doesn't expect him back until September, Barry Jackson of the Miami Herald reports. Spin: This is bad news for the Marlins who continue to make a push for a playoff appearance. It looked like Bour would return at some point this week, but that timetable has been pushed back at least a couple of more weeks. The Marlins will continue to use a platoon approach at first base with Chris Johnson, Derek Dietrich and Miguel Rojas.
  14. Trades were easy vetoes. Not even close. Provides no benefit to the guy down at the bottom. Only thing close to a rational argument is keeping Pollock, who was only included after the first one was vetoed. It's a combination of the guy trading too much value because he just doesn't care and the crazy notion of not vetoing trades. I'm realizing the only way to avoid tanking in these leagues is to do away with keepers and put a trade deadline middle of July.
  15. Standard 5x5 roto 4 keepers. Guy in first place originally offers Molina and Schoop for Salvador Perez. Guy in last turns it down and counters with Molina and Benintendi for Perez. VETOED. New trade: Molina, Benintendi, Pollock for Perez, Wainwright, and Archie Bradley. VETOED. Goes to league vote and is approved 7-2. I'm in a league with terrible owners. Guy in last is not active because he's in last. Got the trade offer from the guy in 1st, looked down the 1st place team and said "eh, i like Benintendi" and sent him whatever he liked because he doesn't care. Spent the whole day yesterday telling me Benintendi and Pollock might be keepers, and that they're both better than Wainwright and Bradley, a rookie who's actually playing. None of these guys are actually keepers but that's the tune he's singing. I lay out the fact that all the guys he's receiving in the trade were available on free agency to be picked up NOT A WEEK AGO. Doesn't have an answer for that, just says "things change". Well i'll tell you what hasn't changed all year, your spot at the bottom. If you're in the mode of looking for keepers, why didn't you pick these guys up off free agency when you had the chance? So then he changes it to "i'm only in it for Pollock". You mean the guy that wasn't included in the first trade you offered? The guy who was available to be picked up and stashed in your DL spot a week ago? Then finally admits today he's obviously not going to keep any of them. Then why in the f&*# are you trading? I tell you what, i try very hard to think up policies that avoid teams tanking and still gives owners a say in the league. But if the owners don't pay attention to how roto fantasy baseball works, and just don't care about the trades they make, then i have no other option than to just make it LM decision.
