  1. I don't know what your formats are but i have to start him. Either him or Eddie Royal. His upside is too big to risk putting him on the bench if they figure it out. I also don't like Osweiler though, didn't see anything that impressed me in Denver and certainly not in Houston. It's a lot easier to play well when you have Peyton tutoring you every week.
  2. They should replace Frank Thomas with Derek Jeter and call the postgame show "2 cheaters and Jeter"

  4. Hoyer isn't in love with him like Cutler was.
  5. I had a vivid dream that he goes for 215 yards and 2 TD's this week.
  7. Of course. Why would i keep a dead man on my active roster. Trying to win not garner likes.
  8. 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.
  9. 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.
  10. 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.
  11. Shouldn't be. The guy is responsible for his own actions. Just an unfortunate situation.
  12. 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.
  13. 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.
  14. It means he'll miss his connection and have to call in sick on Monday.
