  1. 5/25 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Yup that’s how I feel. Sums my year up.
  2. 5/25 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Was just about to rant. He needs to go back on the DL.
  3. Hanley Ramirez 2018 Outlook "The decision to part ways with Ramirez may avoid a potentially awkward situation related to his $22 million vesting option for 2019. With a total of 497 plate appearances this year, Ramirez would be guaranteed another $22 million next season. He’d already accumulated 195, and was on pace to blow past the required number of plate appearances to secure his salary for next season. The Sox were prepared to let the 34-year-old stay in the lineup and let the option vest if his production warranted it.

    Alex Speier of the Boston Globe reports that the Red Sox will designate Hanley Ramirez for assignment.
  5. Nolan Arenado 2018 Outlook

    Jurickson Profar has 2 more rbi than this "rbi machine". Id say maybe in early April that could be funny but late May that is just down right sad.

    Of course Scoop is the only out of a big 1st innings for the 0's, smh.
  7. 5/24 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Felt the same way. An utter waste.
  8. 5/24 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I swear every good start Castillo has going he always falters in the 6th, it’s like damn clock work.
  9. Welington Castillo 2018 Outlook

    Does anyone know what he actually tested positive for? Reports say it’s not a steroid so I’m wondering if it’s another masking agent.

    Torres making it look easy. Shades of Cody’s impact last year.
  11. Chris Taylor 2018 Outlook

    Before tonight’s game he batted 6th and 7th. I think it has more to do with facing a lefty maybe.
  12. Matt Adams 2018 Outlook

    I hate this dude.
  13. Brian Dozier 2018 Outlook

    Brian Dozier, Minnesota Twins Brian Dozier’s well-hit .090, less than half of expectation. He’s just been bad. His location performance is a D across the board. He’s staying patient, but is that a great thing? Why take 75% of first pitches (average is 41%) and 39.3% of pitches in the zone (average is 23%)? The goal for hitters is to hit strikes. He’s taking 44.5% of pitches in the zone when he’s ahead of the count — and don’t tell me these are all quality strikes. He’s also taking 35.4% of fastball strikes (average is 23%). Yes, it’s fair to say he did similar things across the board last year. But things are not working out now so why not be more aggressive and exploit what pitchers think your tendencies are instead of leaning into them even more? An odd quirk about Dozier is that he has seven road homers. But he’s slugging .217 at home (third-worst in baseball). It’s safe to say that Dozier peaked in 2016. He’s like Ozuna in that the expectation should be his career rate going forward — forget about the last two years. His ZiPS for the rest of the year is .252/.334/.467 with 22 homers and 10 steals. I’d be thrilled with that if I owned Dozier, so I guess I’m taking the under. But the combo potential and second-base qualification forces us to stick with him.
  14. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    Everytime I pick up a guy he instantly skimps hard, every damn time. I guess it’s John Hicks turn.
  15. 5/23 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Goldy officially batting under .200.
  16. 5/23 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Happ might be ready to implode.., again.
  17. Jack Flaherty 2018 Outlook

    If Flaherty pitches well his next time out it will be a much harder decision for Cards brass to send him down. If he gets lit up I can easily see him getting demoted.
  18. 5/21 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Goldy batting a healthy .201, wild.
  19. Gleyber Torres 2018 Outlook

    Untouchable, I think he has Correa type upside but some might think I’m crazy saying that.
  20. Jonathan Schoop 2018 Outlook

    Well he sucks, I’ll give him another few weeks.
  21. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    Reports are saying he might be up by Friday.
  22. Jack Flaherty 2018 Outlook

    Now that Reyes is a lock to join the rotation in a week or so who gets bumped when Martinez is activated?? Is John the odd man out??
  23. Miguel Andujar 2018 Outlook

    Hes batting .317 the last 2 weeks and .311 the past month. Yea the power hasn't been there the last 2 weeks but having an over .300 batting average is perfectly fine, thats raking to me.
  24. Miguel Andujar 2018 Outlook

    This was more than likely a scheduled day off to get Walker some ab's, its that simple so don't make it anything more as Andujar has been raking.
