  1. hr ago | by RotoWire Staff Shaw will receive regular time at second base due to Milwaukee's acquisition of Mike Moustakas, Tom Haudricourt of the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel reports. Shaw will likely settle into the larger side of a platoon with Tyler Saladino and Hernan Perez, while also spelling Moustakas at the hot corner and Jesus Aguilar at first base in order to get his bat in the lineup. This will be an intriguing experiment as Shaw admitted that he's never played second base in his life -- the closest he came was shortstop in high school -- but the Brewers have had him field groundballs and partake in other drills at the keystone during warmups over the past few weeks in case this situation came about. Don't expect to see Shaw in the lineup against left-handed pitching, but he figures to remain a fixture when Milwaukee faces righties. 2B! I don't like the sounds of this platoon stuff though
  2. Benched again (2nd straight Sunday). Starting to wonder how long is too long to be patient with this guy.
  3. How is he this useless? I mean, he legitimately has to be one of the worst hitters in the league right now. He's absolutely pathetic in every offensive category.
  4. So much for "figuring it out". Anyone see any reason to hold this guy? He's giving up minimum 3 runs every start and is lucky to make it to 5 innings.... um, maybe I just answered my own question?
  5. 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.
  6. 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
  7. 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.
  8. Watching the Dodgers broadcast and they just announced that Walker left with the dreaded forearm tightness.
  9. Graveman has to be the worst pitcher in the entire league (if not, he's close). He's absolutely atrocious.
  10. Save for Madson. Anyone know why Doolittle didn't pitch?
  11. 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.
  12. 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
  13. 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.
