  1. August Closer Thread 2018

    Osuna will be closing within 2 weeks from today. He's only been statistically one of the best closers, at his age, in league history. I'm sure they just got him because Rondon is good, but unspectacular. They're not just gonna hand him the job coming off an injury, let alone a suspension... which almost requires discipline.
  2. July Closer Thread 2018

    Cardinals literally sold off every reliever they have except for Norris and Hicks. So peeved, but hey Leclerc was available.
  3. July Closer Thread 2018

    I keep waiting for the 52-51 Cards, 8 games back of Cubs to sell Norris Norris, 1 yr 3 mil has been pretty solid for the Cards and his k:bb is something like 50:8 The Cards just traded Tuivolo, is Norris next?
  4. Carlos Rodon 2018 Outlook

    Last 3 games 21 IP 4 ER 10 H 21 K/ 11 BB 2 Wins, on the freakin white sox. 6 of those BB's were in his first start of the 3
  5. Jon Gray 2018 Outlook

    He just 1 hit the Astros, the freaking Astros, over 6 or 7 innings. And his first start back was great as well... Annnnnd crickets. This guy can return top 20 sp value the rest of the way. Confidence and mentality is a huge part of this game. Go pick him up if he's available, because that buy low just closed.
  6. Luis Castillo 2018 Outlook

    This guy forgotten? he's been walking a lot less and striking plenty out. How's the velocity today?
  7. Joey Lucchesi 2018 Outlook

    He's not roster able in Q's leagues. Rookies usually aren't. Anywhere else, he gets you solid ratios and K's. Nothing special, buy quietly useful.
  8. Luis Castillo 2018 Outlook

    Not everyone plays 10 team standard leagues with no keeper incentive.

    They got Adam Jones. And he was very good for a while.

  11. 7/12 - GAME DAY THREAD

    Phils commit an error on back to back plays. Followed by a wild pitch. You're on thin ice already Pivetta But hey it's the O's so... Pivetta gets out of it unscathed

    Not really sure what's confusing about my post about moving from o-ranked 140 to 20 to 3
  13. Joey Lucchesi 2018 Outlook

    Draft him next year, but I'm in a 16 team league that doesn't count QS. Nothing extraordinary, but I'm inclined to hold onto him as he gets further and further away from that injury
  14. Jose Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    No one thought he'd hit 40. In last year's draft he was o-ranked at about 140. I wanted to take him with my first overall pick at like 110 or something. I risked it, waited, and still got him. What I saw was a kid who was pretty good at everything and was improving at every level. But hey, I think he's 26 in a fly ball era. Going from 29/19 to 35/20 hr/sb wasn't a horrible hope. This guy is that rare guy who has shown linear growth. I was saying at the beginning of the year that you could take him end of the first round because 30/20 300, at 26 yrs old, in a loaded lineup is worth even more that. But hey he's at 27/19 now before the all star break and you're telling me you'd wanna draft arena do before him because of name recognition. That's just the silliest thing ever. That's like saying I'm not gonna draft trout cause bass tastes better. As in basement of the standings. Wake up and actually open up his player page. Check his career progression, and erase any doubts you have about a "Ramirez" being able to ball. He proved you wrong last year and you didn't select his numbers at face value in the 2nd round. That's on you, but don't make the same mistake twice.
  15. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    Prepare to eat some humble pie. He's basically in spring training right now. Joey Gallo is a Mendoza line hitter. Shave some home runs for BA and u get bird.
  16. Jose Ramirez 2018 Outlook

    Hi. My name is rumplestiltskin and I just wanted to clarify that joram is on pace for a 110-40-110-30-300 season. But yeah, he's gonna go outside of the top 3.
  17. Greg Bird 2018 Outlook

    Birds not a superstar but he's a good player. There is nothing wrong with a 260 30 guy who can take a walk. Rest assured Yanks are looking at Machado for 3rd, not a 1B.
  18. 7/11 - GAME DAY THREAD

    CRodon at 61 pitches through 5. Cruising
  19. 7/11 - GAME DAY THREAD

    And there I was looking at my team stats so far 2/16 with 2 runs 2 hr and 5 rbi's. And there I was changing the TV station to the Indians game
  20. 7/11 - GAME DAY THREAD

    CRodon got squeezed hard on that walk. I mean I'm watching MLB live so I don't get to see the pitch, so I guess it must be a glitch in the system.
  21. Blackmon or Sale

    H2H stand 5x5 + obp + k:bb ratio 16 teams C Contreras 1b hoskins 2b Joram 3b Eugenio Ss segura Of Blackmon Of teoscar Of schebler U delino U joc B buxton SP: CMart Castillo JGray Pivetta CRodon Luchessi Clevinger OF is weak but offense as a whole might be best in league. Bullpen is fine. SP is beyond inconsistent. I'm currently 3rd out of 16. This is a good trade for me whether Blackmon heats up or not as it helps my team? Or do I ride that offense and just punt era/whip/k:bb and rely on K's and a couple closers. I'm in that Strickland/minter/Hicks train for a 3rd closer.
  22. Do NOT drop Gray. Players get demoted every year. They work on mechanics, get a confidence boost, and have a triumphant return. Good if unspectacular ratios with an abundance of K's is on the horizon. Aside from 90% of the game being mental. He has top 20 SP upside. Bieber does not, but they both have the same floor... In AAA. Invest in talent, not what have you done for me lately.
  23. Blackmon or Sale

    I forgot to add. Keep 7 going into next year. One less keeper every year
  24. July Closer Thread 2018

    So do I hold Strickland for now?
  25. 7/2 - GAME DAY THREAD

    This is precisely how I look and feel about owning Carlos Martinez and Luis Castillo. Thank God they sent Jon Gray down.
