    Not to nitpick, but he's leaving the game after throwing his 2nd pitch! Looked like a blister ripped open. After leaving his last start I have no earthly idea how he thought he would make it through this one.
  2. Mookie Betts 2018 Outlook

    Alex Cora was on inside pitch today. They're resting Mookie another day (he's available tonight) and they plan to start him tomorrow for the day game

    Yup. Something like 14 pitches Saturday and 22 yesterday, both in non-save opportunities and now he's unavailable when a save opp actually arises. Annoying for owners.
  4. 4/14 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Watching the Dodgers broadcast and they just announced that Walker left with the dreaded forearm tightness.
  5. 4/14 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Graveman has to be the worst pitcher in the entire league (if not, he's close). He's absolutely atrocious.
  6. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Save for Madson. Anyone know why Doolittle didn't pitch?
  7. 4/10 - GAME DAY THREAD

    It's insane. His last AB vs. Sale almost looked like he knew he was going to strike out and wanted to just get it over with quickly.
  8. Justin Smoak 2018 Outlook

    Looks like his knees were bothering him a bit towards the end of last year. Combine this with the Jays being out of contention and the grind of a long season, may explain his slow finish. https://www.mlb.com/news/blue-jays-justin-smoak-on-high-expectations/c-266686748
  9. Justin Smoak 2018 Outlook

    He has openly discussed his change in approach and the metrics back up what he did last year for the most part. Anyone know of any possible reason for his slow finish to the season? I thought it was just September but he wasn't great in August either. (In August he hit .240 with a .307 OBP and September was even worse at .179/.317 with only 2 HR for the month). These numbers remind me more of pre-2017 Smoak than the guy we saw in the first half of last year. I don't know if he was playing through injury or if this was just a cold streak but it casts at least a little doubt on what was a great season.
  10. Keeper Suggestions

    Sanchez, Hoskins, Schoop, Gordon, Ozuna, Kluber, Bumgarner, deGrom, Jansen I did consider keeping Weaver over Jansen because of the volatility of closers (Britton, for example), but Jansen seems to be in a class of his own at the position.
  11. What pitcher to stream? WHIR thanks!!

    I'd go with E-Rod. He's been pitching better in September. Help with mine?
  12. I'm trying to decide on my final pitcher spot. It's H2H points, and a two-week final so whoever I choose is locked in. Clevinger (will start 9/19 @LAA, 9/26 vs MIN). With the addition of Salazar to the rotation I'm not sure he gets a 3rd start next weekend vs CWS. Jon Gray (9/22 @SD, and 9/27 vs MIA) C. McHugh (9/19 vs CHW, 9/24 vs LAA, and should get a 3rd start somewhere in that final weekend @BOS, health permitting.) He seems like the most likely guy to make 3 starts but is coming back from a fingernail avulsion. I'm probably overthinking it because it's the finals. Any help is appreciated and WHIR! Thanks!

    With Wainwright moving to the bullpen for the rest of the season, do you guys think there's any chance Matheny gives him save opps? Or does Nicasio likely have the role locked down rest of season?
  14. Collin McHugh 2017 Outlook

    Astros' Collin McHugh: Set to start Tuesday by RotoWire Staff (1 hr ago) McHugh (fingernail) is scheduled to start Tuesday against the White Sox, Jake Kaplan of the Houston Chronicle reports. McHugh's fingernail detached during his last start Sept. 8, but it's gotten to a point where he'll be able to pitch Tuesday. Prior to the start where he suffered the injury, McHugh had been pitching very well. Over the previous three outings he posted a 0.54 ERA and 1.08 WHIP. Here's the big question, and I don't mean to get too "bench coachy", but would anyone trust this guy in a 2 week final? He could potentially start 3 times (vs CHW, vs LAA, @ BOS).
  15. September Closer Thread 2017

    Maybe I'm bitter because he's been pretty inconsistent and overall disappointing this year, but I'm done with him. At this point he's not worth the risk to me (I play in a weekly league and don't want him stuck in my lineup during the playoffs). The forearm strain has flared up twice now and seems like it could happen again at any time.
