    Snapped the power drought of 14 games last night, glad to see his bat come back to life in the final week. Hopefully he can pop one or two more before the end of the week!

    I hate streaming.
  3. Remaining Starters - WHIR

    Start Castillo, Quintana and Verlander and then play it by ear with Clevinger and Nola. To be honest, I wouldn't pre-plan to sit either Nola or Clevinger. Your first 3 have great matchups, so hopefully they throw well and then you don't have to worry about it. If you need to start either Clevinger or Nola, I'd be comfortable doing it. Wait and see.
  4. Franchise Player: Altuve or Judge?

    I'd also go Altuve.

    12-team roto league $260 auction r,hr,rbi,sb,avg,obp k, qs, sv, hd, era, whip Which 8 would you keep?

  6. 2019 Draft Steals

    Scott Kingery?
  7. 2019 Draft Steals

    Know he's been mentioned a couple times already, but Glasnow...new home in TB. I remember watching Blake Snell struggle with similar control issues after coming up in 2017 and look at him this year. See a lot of parallels between him and Glasnow, expect big things next year.
  8. Walker Buehler 2018 Outlook

    Crazy he was able to get through 6. When I looked he had finished 3 IP and had throws 67 pitches already. So glad I hung on to this guy through his injury etc, looks like a legit top 10-15 SP going into next year, but has potential to be so much higher.
  9. Carlos Rodon 2018 Outlook

    That is the rest of the season, he'll have 2 more starts max, I think. @ CHC and @MIN
  10. 9/18 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Yes sir, good #s vs Baltimore and has been throwing well last couple starts. Hoping for another good outing.
  11. Chris Sale 2018 Outlook

    Possibly. They said he wants to be built up to a full 100 pitches by playoffs, which is only 2 more starts. He's probably going to throw 60-70 pitches, so depending how it goes, he should get 4-5 innings.
  12. Auction Keepers for next season?

    Trout $30 Machado $16 (under contract) C. Seager $18 (under contract) Soto $6 Baez $4 Andujar $6 Kershaw $14 Clevinger $4
  13. 9/18 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Go Happ, Freeland, and Sanchez!
  14. Aaron Sanchez 2018 Outlook

    Yes. Has good numbers vs outside of Davis, but Davis cant hit a beach ball.
  15. Tyler Glasnow 2018 Outlook

    Amen. I'm starting...although admittedly a little anxious about it. Outside of his start vs Toronto, which I think he learned a ton from, he has been great since being traded to Tampa.
