  1. 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.
  2. 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.
  3. What pitcher to stream? WHIR thanks!!

    I'd go with E-Rod. He's been pitching better in September. Help with mine?
  4. 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!
  5. September Closer Thread 2017

    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?
  6. 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).
  7. 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.
  8. Alex Wood 2017 Outlook

    Has anyone seen or heard any updates on Wood since this? I feel a little hesitant to start him in a weekly league.
  9. August Closer Thread 2017

    Brach with a save. O's announcers updated that Britton's knee is still bothering him. Apparently it's not bad enough for him to go on the DL but still bothering him enough that he's not ready to come into games. Makes for a difficult decision for weekly leaguers that may have been relying on the O's bullpen for saves.
  10. 8/21 - GAME DAY THREAD

    And there it goes. Another pathetic bullpen performance.
  11. 8/21 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Only took a double and three walks before they got someone warming in the pen. Pathetic.
  12. Xander Bogaerts 2017 Outlook

    I'm not sure, but he's benched again today for the second time in the last four games. He's been so bad lately that I actually hope it's injury related - he battled groin and wrist issues a little while ago that might still be affecting him.
  13. Chris Sale 2017 Outlook

    All Sox starters bumped back a day. Looks like Sale goes on Tuesday and most likely won't get 2 starts next week either, as the Sox only play 5 games. http://www.masslive.com/redsox/index.ssf/2017/08/rick_porcello_to_start_thursda.html
  14. David Dahl 2017 Outlook

    Just moved on in a long-term keeper. I had always loved the potential and upside but I'm starting to feel like (unfortunately for him) injuries will always be an issue with this guy.
  15. Lance McCullers 2017 Outlook

    He's getting hit hard. Marisnick saved him from further damage with a great catch at the top of the CF wall in the 5th
