    It never ends with these guys.

    Go Thor, Bauer, Price, Flaherty, Hill, etc. https://rotogrinders.com/weather/mlb http://www.baseballpress.com/lineups
  3. Stephen Strasburg 2018 Outlook

    High on Stras for 2018. 2017: IP - 175.1 ERA - 2.52 FIP - 2.72 SIERA - 3.37 K/9 - 10.47 BB/9 - 2.41 HR/FB - 8.7% He decreased his slider usage by more than 10% and increased his changeup usage by 10%. His SwStr% went from 11% in 2016 to 12.9% in 2017. His O-Swing% went up 3% and his O-Contact% dropped by 7.6%. He started 28 games and only gave up 5+ runs in three of them. There is really nothing not to like about Strasburg. Sure, you can't depend on him to throw 200+ innings, but not many pitchers do that anymore. If he gave us 180 innings in 2018, that would be perfectly fine. Great K%, good BB%, outstanding HR/9, good GB%, and plays for one of the best teams in baseball. Even if he gives up a few more homers, he should still finish with a sub-3.00 ERA. For me, he is truly elite and is the 6th best SP in baseball.

    Clippard just blew the save.

    I think you're referring to Thor. His arm probably fell off.

    Stras and Max arguing with the pitching coach or all three of them jawing at each other?

    Hill is never efficient with his pitches.

    This isn't what I expected against the Rangers.
  9. 7/20 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Encarnacion should have had that.
  10. Rich Hill 2018 Outlook

    That was purely speculation. Roberts never said Hill wasn't going to be in the rotation.

    The Padres are the worst team in baseball again RHP. Unless they are facing Arrieta, of course.
  12. Domingo German 2018 Outlook

    He has good stuff, he's just not a good pitcher.
  13. 7/20 - GAME DAY THREAD

    He's a top 10 SP. Bauer is one of the few guys you don't need to worry about.

    Both Bundy and German are hot garbage.
  15. Ozzie Albies 2018 Outlook

    It was just right hamstring tightness. Precautionary move.

    Hoping it's nothing serious.

    Albies taken out of the game. Injured?
  18. 7/20 - GAME DAY THREAD

    I hope none of you started German. The guy looks like garbage.
  19. Manny Machado 2018 Outlook

    Machado had another good season in 2017. He should be a lock in 2018 for 30+ HR, 100+ RBI, and 90+ R with a handful of stolen bases. His average dipped pretty low last season, but his BABIP was considerably lower than it should be moving forward. His K% of 16.7% was very good and his BB% was about league average. Although his average suffered in 2017, his hard% was up and his soft% was down. He should be a fantastic second round selection. It should be noted, however, that he is only 3B eligible now. Also, let's hope he gets traded to a better team.
  20. Chris Archer 2018 Outlook

    I love this guy. He has thrown 200+ innings for three straight seasons. 2017: 11.15 K/9 2.69 BB/9 1.21 HR/9 3.40 FIP 3.35 xFIP 3.44 SIERA Yeah, he gives up too many homers, but the rest of his numbers are fantastic. If he truly does get traded to the Astros, we are looking at a top 10 SP, possibly top 7. Tropicana Field is more of a pitcher's park than Minute Maid Park, but he should finally be able to win more games than he loses. I'm just hoping he gets traded to a team that can actually score some runs, I don't know who it is. I would love to have this guy as my SP2 in 2018.

    Winker > Garcia
  23. drop any of these for Pivetta?

    Pivetta is better than Kingham and Gibson.
  24. 7/20 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Bauer's slider is off the chain. 11.2 pitch value compared to 1.2 in 2017. Easily a top 10 SP.
