  1. Yeah, it’s kind of sad when fantasy managers refuse to see the logic and financial realities that real life MLB execs are dealing with. But in Shaw’s case, it’s so hard to watch. Everyone knows where this is going. Shaw is striking out so much and being benched a couple of times a week. He’s totally lost. Hiura is the future. I will be amazed if he isn’t up for good by the All-Star Break.
  2. Why did Bogaerts exit the game? Injured?
  3. Hiura hit 2 HRs tonight for San Antonio... That’s 20 on the season between majors and minors. The lunacy will end soon. Shaw’s stock is way down.
  4. Another big game in AAA tonight. 2 for 5 with a HR. He did strike out three times though. Still, I think he’s a great stash for now. He has 17 HRs and 6 SBs between majors and minors this year. This guy is the real deal.
  5. At this point he is looking like a very legit bounce-back player. His performance over the last month is actually starting to reflect his draft day status. I really hope he can keep it going, as he's a genuine talent who has been on a very long road to recovery. Hard not to pull for him. My guess: The buy low window is slamming shut.
  6. So, he’s not in the Round Rock lineup tonight. Anyone know if it’s simply a rest day?
  7. Honestly, I think 3 multi hit games in your first 6 days in the MLB is pretty good. The HR today was a laser. The 4 Ks game was ugly, but just one game. I’m definitely playing wait and see with the Shaw return. That lineup and home ballpark could really help his counting stats, if he can just outplay one ice cold, overrated player.
  8. Sonny Gray looks really sharp in the early going.
  9. Tonight the DBacks strung a couple of soft singles, a couple of fairly well struck singles and a HBP together, and caused Max to give up a couple of runs in the 4th. But the kid was pretty unflappable and hung in for a QS in the end (and hopefully the win). I’m impressed by the fact that he’s so poised and works fairly quickly. Just by way of comparison: I was also keeping tabs on Quintana’s relative dominance of the Marlins this evening. Honestly, Fried was more impressive in terms of stuff and when you take quality of competition in to consideration. This kid could become something special if he refines things just a little. I hope the Braves give him a real shot in the rotation this year.
  10. I watched most of that start, as Yu is one of the biggest question marks from my draft and I'm trying to determine what the heck to do with him. While there is obviously a lot of room for skepticism, I though he looked pretty good at times. There was just enough there, against an admittedly bad team, that I am patiently holding for now. He's definitely still got great stuff. Just needs to make more competitive pitches early in the count, IMHO. (And yes, I though both starters were getting squeezed a bit).
  11. I just scooped him as a free agent, after he was cut loose by another manager. While I recognize he hasn't done much so far, he has strung together a few hits this past week. The upside is still worth a flier in my opinion. If he went 3 for 5 today and stole a base, folks would be scrambling. Sometimes it just takes one good game to spark something in a young player. But I guess roster size plays a big part in whether you have that luxury of benching him.
  12. Why did Sonny Gray leave after 4 excellent innings? Is he hurt? Anyone watching?
  13. I'm mildly annoyed that the home plate umpire took that break to get a band-aid mid AB, when Bauer had Hicks looking at a 1-2 pitch. The guy couldn't wait a couple damn minutes and let the pitcher stay in stride?
  14. Anyone know what his status is moving forward? Did they mention anything during the broadcast? The press was calling it a spot start. But he’s still on the big league roster a night after the start, in spite of all their injuries. Is he sticking around for another start or sliding to the pen?
  15. Too little data available to judge. If you want to drop him fine. His role is uncertain going forward. But basing your analysis on a mere 2 innings of work is ridiculous.
