  1. Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

    Pouliot's rankings are consistently awful. Just read into the list and you can see there's about 50 guys way off. Or better yet, save your time and don't read his rankings at all

    You're right that nobody knows for sure, given Kapler's short track record and I agree he's done a nice job. Since I own Seranthony and closely follow the bullpen in Philly, I'd say it's mostly been Seranthony with Arano mixed in since Neris was sent down and Edubray Ramos got hurt,. As a partially-biased spectator, I don't think they can keep sending Arano out there and fully trusting him - he's been shaky almost every time I've watched and playoff race pressure is a different animal. Seranthony is far and away more dominant and deserving of the role. All that being said, Britton would be a reliable option in the 9th, giving Kapler the option to use Seranthony earlier or use him against a righty heavy last 3 outs.

    Phillies - Yes. Kapler seems to prefer Seranthony in the Miller/Hader role, so Britton would fit nicely as the closer.

    Well said! I've watched a few of his latest starts, and his slider is devastating. It's a legit out pitch, which helps to explain how he is keeping his ERA manageable with the walks and loud contact. Totally agree he'll have his ups and downs, but in my roto league I'm starting him every time out.

    Coming off of Injury or not, Britton is 10000000% not just a name. ERA under 2 in 2014 and 2015, with 73 combined saves. THEN, 0.54 ERA and 47 saves in 2016.

    Hinch hasn't mixed and matched for the last month-plus. Rondon has been getting every save opp as long as he's available. Not expecting things to change, unless Astros trade for a closer.
  8. Brian Dozier 2018 Outlook

    Dodgers seem to be making the biggest push for him: http://www.1500espn.com/twins-2/2018/07/report-dodgers-looking-beyond-manny-machado-conversations-brian-dozier/ Very likely he is traded to a contender, which would be great for his value. Also, starting to heat up with 2 homers in last 3 games. 2nd half Dozier here we come!
  9. Two trades offered WHIR

    Wouldn't do either of those.
  10. Ketel Marte 2018 Outlook

    Batted 5th yesterday and batting 5th tonight. Technically that's bottom half of the lineup, but DBacks have a pretty deep lineup so the RBI/runs should be there. Especially hitting behind, Goldy, Lamb, and Peralta. Dbacks may eventually go Jay, Marte, Goldy, Peralta, Lamb as top 5 in the order, and that would be massive for his value. However, the current lineup seems to be working well for them so I don't anticipate a change.
  11. Mike Soroka 2018 Outlook

    Soroka is heading back to the DL with right shoulder inflamation...could be out for a while. In redraft leagues, I think he's a drop unless there's nothing on the wire.
  12. June Closer Thread 2018

    Ditto. If rested, Seranthony would have closed tonight.
  13. David Fletcher 2018 Outlook

    Cozart hurt his shoulder yesterday. No word yet on severity, but DL would open everyday playing time for a week or two for Fletcher.
  14. June Closer Thread 2018

    I’d actually say if you look at usage, it points to Siranthony being the closer in Philly. He had the last save (2 inning) and phillies had no save chances since. He hadn’t pitched in a few days so was just getting in work last night. Also, Edubray pitched the 8th. ALSO, Neris has given up runs in 4 straight appearances. And while he may be called on in 7th or 8th sometimes and may not get every save chance, for all intents and purposes he is the closer.
  15. Junior Guerra 2018 Outlook

    Guerra is replicating what he did in 2016 when he was a great surprise for fantasy owners (myself included). ERA a tick down and WHIP and FIP almost identical. Strikeouts are up a bit as well. IMO he's a major BUY BUY BUY!
