  1. This dude has Pringle’s for finger nails.
  2. Trying to decide on my final spot keeper spot. Carpenter has 2B eligibility, but I'm already holding Baez and Seager (Arenado at 3B). We have a MI position, so there's some value there. Gut says Votto... head says Carp.
  3. Agreed... this is a really good lineup around him.
  4. The Rays broadcast said that Kevin Cash was planning on ramping his pitch count back up via innings. He pitched 4 innings last outing and 5 this outing, they were trying to limit his “ups and downs” they said rather than stick to a hard pitch count. Take it for what’s its worth I guess. He was absolutely cruising.
  5. Rays broadcast talking about it being more about his innings. He pitched 4 innings last time out and then 5 this time.
  6. Assuming this is redraft? You’re long at 1B and RP, but you already said they are important. As long as Aguilar is hitting, hard to take him out of the lineup which means either he or Rizzo is locked in at Util. If you have to have Cano and aren’t willing to part with one of those RP...I would say Tucker. If it’s 10 team and owners are hoarding RP, I would have to imagine there’s decent options on the wire at OF.
  7. 12 team dynasty...keep forever. trade Syndergaard for Benintendi? Shallow at OF and deep at SP (Nola, Snell, Bum)...owner is asking for my Noah.
  8. Agreed, the lack of k's certainly hurts his value... that and his short outings. With those two things hindering him, name value is the only thing truly keeping people from jumping ship.
  9. His swinging strike rate is down which is still concerning. But his outing against Washington wasn’t that bad... 74 pitches; 5 INN, 4 H, 2 ER, 2 BB and 2 K. Kapler lifted him for a PH in the bottom of the 5th inning. Lack of strikeouts is concerning, hard to tell if he is pitching to contact or if he isn’t getting the same kind of movement. His start against Pittsburgh in April was really strong, 10 k’s but since them it’s been a whole lot of “meh”
  10. Honestly, he has looked pretty good lately. I count 12 swinging strikes so far today.
  11. Giants have Melancon up in the pen.
  12. I will say there were a handful of really hard hit balls that probably should have been hits but the defense really came through for him. His change up is really good right now.
  13. That last inning was rough... he got ahead on Abreu 0-2, got ahead on Davidson 1-2 and ahead of Castillo 0-2 and then ran the counts full on all three of them.
  14. They had the runner at first in a run down... Santana at 3rd. He scored while the runner at first was in a run-down.
  15. I'm aware, was merely commenting on what the value of having an SP w/RP eligibility was. The comment I quoted implied that there is only value in that situation if there are unusual roster or league settings.
  16. CBS standard format doesn't have a start cap (weekly lineup), a strategy often used in that setting is to maximize your starts by using an SP in the RP slot and to punt saves. So this season a guy like David Price can be used in the RP role and give a team 6 starters that week instead of 5.
  17. will be making his spring training debut on Thursday.
  18. For what it’s worth... CBS is reporting that Gausman was testing out a new sinker grip yesterday.
  19. Bradley didn't start a game last year, he should only carry RP eligibility this year. Having said that, Price will carry both RP/SP eligibility this year. Tyler Chatwood and Joe Musgrove are two others that come to mind. As for the OP, aside from Peacock it will be interesting to see how that rotation shakes out... McHugh specifically. Jeff Hoffman is another interesting SP that could shift to a RP role in 2018. Mike Clevinger is also intriguing, will be watching how the Indians rotation shakes out, he could be a guy that starts off out of the pen.
