  1. It seems like pure folly to me to think that there are 19 guys one would rather have than Rendon entering next season. To me, he's a borderline top five pick, and very likely top ten. Yelich, Trout, Bellinger, and Acuna are the only four I'd place clearly above him. I think he's in the next tier with Freeman, Arenado, Turner, Betts, Lindor, Bregman, and Soto, and you can make a case for Rendon as the best of that group. He should go long before pick 20 in almost every league.
  2. Yeah, it seems to be fixed now. Still, very frustrating and a major problem for fantasy managers who have to make their changes before work because their jobs don't let them spend all day messing around on the internet like mine does.
  3. ESPN not allowing lineup changes this morning. I make the move, and get an error message that says "Transaction cannot be executed by this host. Try again." WTF?! How are they so bad at this?
  4. Is there going to be any baseball in New York today?
  5. As a Brewers fan, I seriously can't see them sending Hiura back down again. Not only is he their second best hitter right now, but it's crucial for his development to be seeing major league pitching every day. Stearns may have badly misjudged their pitching this year, but he's smart enough to realize that the team's future depends on Hiura developing as best he can. There's also a steadily rising probability that the Brewers realize they're going nowhere this year, trade Moustakas, and ride out the rest of the season with Shaw at 3B and Hiura at 2B.
  6. Lyles just had a total meltdown down two outs away from the QS. GRRRRRRRRR.
  7. He's pitching in gradually higher leverage situations, and he's pitching well despite giving up a few ERs. The velocity is back and so is his swagger on the mound. I expect him to get a decent number of save opportunities starting in June, though I don't think Counsell will completely revert to last season's roles. He will do his best to avoid using Hader on consecutive days, and that's where Jeffress might get some chances.
  8. I don't even care about steals anymore, I just want him to get a hit every now and then!
  9. Yelich bomb, totally crushed. His swing is just incredible.
  10. Yep, this is brutal. He has 7 hits in the last 15 days. What is wrong with him? I've owned him many times, can never remember a slump anywhere close to this bad.
  11. So the early homers were nice, but he's hitting .133(!) over the last 15 days. This must be one of the worst slumps of his career. What's going on? Just a bad stretch, or something to be concerned about?
  12. C'mon Nats, put him on the DL if he can't play.
  13. Rain in Pittsburgh costing Taillon owners a QS today. Disappointing.
  14. He's started a little slowly in years past, as well. I'm not concerned.
  15. UPDATE: I'm an idiot. One of the players is Ohtani, so he appears on IL in both batter and pitcher areas. To a person scanning the roster too quickly, this makes it look like three players are rostered on IL.
  16. In ESPN, our league only allows two IL spots, but one manager has three guys currently rostered on IL. I double checked the settings and they are correct. Not sure what's going on here (I am the LM). Has anyone else seen something like this?
  17. Did ESPN even bother testing their new site? It's truly awful. Information about who's starting and who's not, gone. Easy way to only view available players in the most added/dropped screen, gone. Ability to click on a team name on the scoreboard and see their roster, gone. This is basic, basic stuff. How could they have rolled out such a bad update? Is there any indication they are working on fixing these things?
  18. Peralta and Castillo both looking great on the mound today.
  19. I disagree. He's got three saves because in each case, the highest leverage late game situation happened to coincide with a save opportunity. He may well get most of the save chances on days he's available, but they really want to preserve his innings, too, so I doubt he will pitch two days in a row. It will be interesting to see what happens if the Brewers have a save opportunity tonight. My prediction is that Junior Guerra will get the ball if they do.
  20. Not happening. He'll keep coming in whenever an opponent's best hitters are due up late in a game where the Brewers are tied or leading. Sometimes that will be a save opportunity, sometimes not. Just enjoy the ratios and Ks and take the saves when they come.
  21. That got ugly fast for Burnes.
  22. Corbin Burnes up to 9 K's in 3 IP. Pitch count getting a little high, though.
  23. Don't forget that Thames has started each of the last two seasons like he was shot out of a cannon. This is likely just Counsell seeing if he can catch a little more early magic from Thames. Not likely to be a platoon, but if Thames catches fire, Aguilar will sit some until Thames cools down.
  24. Not to mention the potential for a big, big number of R.
