  1. Hello, is this thing happening?? Week 1 is almost over I would need to change the lineup and stuff if i’m gonna run this team. Thanks.
  2. I'm a very happy Garver owner and in first place so can't complain, but he has been no better than guys like Tom Murphy, Danny Jansen, Yan Gomes lately. Do you think the Twins will magically decide to play the guy more often? They've had a clear plan that he will sit frequently, more than other starting catchers, and his production has dropped off. Just curious what your reasoning is to so firmly hold.
  3. My HIGHLY scientific projections were off haha, but the sentiment still holds. Twins are 2-2 without Cruz, and playing at .500 will not get them into the playoffs. Indians are now .5 GB. Twins' season is over. They weren't saving anyone for the playoffs.
  4. Would be classic Twins to give these at bats to Adrianza or someone else, but as a Garver owner, really hoping he just stays at Dh while Cruz is out and plays everyday. He's earned it for sure.
  5. Save Cruz for the playoffs??? They can't save anyone for the playoffs. I'll say there is < 5% chance they IL Cruz. The Indians are 1 GB of them (and getting Kluber back very soon) in the Central, and Oakland or Tampa could easily make up ground if Min falls to a wildcard race. Yes they could rush him back from IL if they slip, but every game matters at this point.
  6. Second straight day batting 3rd, with a full lineup and Grandal protecting. Nice!!
  7. Baez or Kelly might technically be "next in line" in LA, but I definitely see Urias getting the next save chance. He's been beyond lights out, has a couple of saves already, and doesn't appear to be getting stretched out for starting role.
  8. Only explanations are: 1) still lingering effects from high ankle sprain and has ben catching their extra inning games lately. 2) They are flat out just saving him to catch every game during playoffs. I'm still holding tho because nothing on the wire at C.
  9. Plus the Brewers started Hernan Perez again at 2B. I know Shaw is returning from injury and semi-platooning with Perez, but this is just embarrassing
  10. Not likely with Springer and Altuve back soon.
  11. Surprised there's no thread on him yet. He's a capable 4th or 5th outfielder in most leagues (especially OBP) while he's hot and I see some value ROS. He recently made a swing change and the results have followed. He's already up to 8 HR and 6 steals. Moved to leadoff yesterday (with Goodrum out), but hopefully Jones will stick there to greatly increase his value. He usually bats 9th. In his past 16 games, Jones is hitting .421 with four homers, 11 XBH total, and 14 RBI.
  12. The fact is Hiura had just 6 strikeouts in his last 6 games, drew 2 walks, and had 3 HR in his last 5 games. He was starting to get comfortable and they sent him down to make way for Travis Shaw (who is probably/definitely still dealing with lingering wrist issues). I really don’t see any sensible logic here
  13. Boone says Didi could return during upcoming road trip. With that said, I'm thinking he's activated June 7th at Cleveland. What a recovery!
  14. Any chance they'll send Aguilar down (if he has options) to get his swing figured out, while Shaw backs up 1B and 3B? As a Hiura owner (biased), I don't really see why they'd send him down just to go crush Triple-A when Shaw and Aguilar can't get anything going.
  15. He’ll play CF regularly. He was playing almost every day before he went to Triple-A. Mariners will rotate Vogelbach (should sit vs lefties), Bruce (occasional off day), and Encarnacion. If Mallex is hitting, playing time wont be a concern
  16. Great point here. Seems like a tradeoff. Not settling for walks and swinging at pitches he can reach even slightly out of the zone, and he’s still strong enough to get solid contact. Definitely worth it so far.
  17. Bishop just sent back down. Smith crushing Triple-A, 7 steals in 8 games, .361 avg. Should be up very soon and will still eclipse 40 steals this season. Pickup now if you need steals and he was dropped in your league.
