  1. It took him 97 pitches to get through 5ip against a lineup consisting of primarily .200 hitters. As someone mentioned, regression is setting in and he is who we thought he was.
  2. This white sox team is pretty bad. The line isn't as ugly as reactions may seem, but have a feeling this is more of a typical outing than just a bad one.
  3. of course he sucks against the team 29th in the league in runs scored once everyone picks him up/starts him for 2 start week.
  4. @bos and vs bal this week. weekly leaguers rolling him out there? hard to bench him, but that sox matchup doesnt look great....
  5. facing all righties this week. in a weekly league, assuming he is safe to start?
  6. ive got limited options this week so rolling him out there in my weekly league. fingers crossed. #csb
  7. not if you own benoit......
  8. switch to neris?
  9. wouldnt overvalue a game against the twins....
  10. cleared the 5.2 ip mark!!! yippeeeee!!!
  11. FWIW... Marcus Semien will undergo surgery Tuesday to repair a fracture of the scaphoid bone in his right wrist. Semien will have a screw inserted into his wrist and will be re-evaluated in six weeks, at which point a clearer timetable for his return will be known. The shortstop actually suffered the injury late in spring training, but obviously he had felt it was something he could play through. Adam Rosales has started the last three games at shortstop for the A's, but Chad Pinder is also around and could get a look. Top prospect Franklin Barreto is off to a .310/.375/.524 start at Triple-A Nashville and might eventually be an option.
  12. is he confirmed to start or still just speculation. rw makes it seem like he hasnt been named yet... Joe Ross could start Wednesday against the Braves. The Nationals are hinting at the possibility, as Max Scherzer is lined up to start the series opener and Stephen Strasburg will start Thursday, but Wednesday is listed as TBA. Ross was sent down to Triple-A Syracuse to begin the year because the Nationals needed their fifth starter just once in the first couple of weeks. Ross was hit hard in his first start with Syracuse, but he tossed six innings of one-run ball on Thursday. The 23-year-old posted a 3.43 ERA and 93/29 K/BB ratio in 105 innings over 19 starts last season. It's time to pick him up in fantasy leagues where he was dropped.
  13. seems a little contradictory. why call him up if there are not going to play him and they want him to get regular abs? Reds recalled outfielder Jesse Winker from Triple-A Louisville. Winker is up to make his major league debut after hitting .323/.421/.387 in eight games for Louisville. It figures to be a short stay; the Reds don't have a major role for him right now and they'd rather he play regularly in Triple-A than get a handful of at-bats per week in the majors. He's likely to get a longer look in the second half.
  14. Buckle up....
  15. this guy all done? guess whole toronto lineup is pretty much struggling, but time to play catcher roulette?
