  1. They most certainly DO count as regular season games. From wiki Now, do they count towards your fantasy leagues stats? That's up to your league's rules.
  2. The blurb section has been down for at least 2 hours, making it the longest the blurb section has ever been error free
  3. Who's they? MLBN seems like a they and a big piece was done on him this morning. And yes, the letters MVP were used
  4. According to Baseball Ref, using WAR, Carlton's 1972 season ties for 26th best of all time and 5th best post 1900. Pud Galvin's 1884 season comes in at the top with a 20.5 WAR, but that probably comes with pitching 72 games (71 of the complete variety) and 636.1 innings
  5. He’s batted leadoff once in the last 7 games.
  6. Mets twitter feed has this Brandon Nimmo left today’s game after being hit on the hand. X-rays on his left index finger were negative. #Mets Of course, Mets doctor probably X-rayd his coccyx. So take that with a grain of salt
  7. Since posting this fine analysis..... .275/.398/.500 3 HR 13 RBI 19 R 1 SB
  8. Because he's about as good at coaching the Dodgers as Mevins is at covering them.
  9. That's who I meant. Got my Garrett's mixed up
  10. Probably Rojas for now. Jones when he's off DL
  11. Starting pitcher yesterday was Tyler Anderson. In the starting lineup Starting pitcher Tuesday was Sean Manaea. In the starting lineup Starting pitcher on 7/31 was Wade Miley. In the starting lineup Those are the starting LHPs they've faced since this post was made about 2 weeks ago.
  12. Wish he had spaced these out a little more because if he's not getting to 20 its going to be a long 6-7 weeks with him not contributing any more HRs
  13. I'd have to think that a swing like that is going to play great at Oklahoma City
  14. Ummm, no. Cardinals interim manager Mike Shildt confirmed Thursday that Austin Gomber will take Carlos Martinez's place in the starting rotation. Martinez landed back on the disabled list Tuesday with a right shoulder strain and will likely be out for at least a couple of weeks, possibly the remainder of August. Gomber carried a no-hitter into the seventh inning of his first major league start last week against the Reds and holds a 3.22 ERA, 1.16 WHIP, and 18 strikeouts over his first 22 1/3 big league frames. The 24-year-old left-hander is worth a try in most mixed fantasy formats. He's lined up to work Saturday's game in Pittsburgh.
  15. Even if you consider all things production equal, Id honestly lean Schoop due to him likely gaining SS ability.
  16. Yeah. He’s not getting past Cleveland on the WW. It’s jusr a matter of if a deal can be worked out for him.
  17. At least until Turner comes back and I don't think we know what that timeline is.
  18. There's an agenda here that only people that cover the team are privy too.
  19. Not sure how you come to this conclusion. Whole rotation has been decimated and they're still 2 games over .500 and have only finished under .500 once since the turn of the century.
  20. Agreed. Even in the expanded team era, any team that's made the playoffs 3 of the last 8 years is hardly a joke.
  21. Our league defaults to power rankings when more than 2 teams are tied.
  22. Agreed. That one AB is the deciding factor. I’m out too
  23. Nice to see Brandon Phillips back in the league Kenley Jansen recorded three outs for his 28th save of the season Friday against the Brewers. He struck out two batters in the frame. Dylan Floro began the ninth inning with the Dodgers up by four runs, but he gave up a leadoff single to Manny Pina and walked Brandon Phillips before being pulled. Jansen took over from there and retired the first two batters before giving up a two-run triple to Christian Yelich. However, he struck out Jesus Aguilar swinging to end the threat and the ballgame.
