  1. Back this YEAR? Not this week but this year. Ugh deciding what to do with Suárez is going to be tough for every owner. The upcoming red schedule looked really tasty too 👎 Considering the reds aren’t contending would a late week return be too optimistic?
  2. I need to know asap too. I’ve got him as my third baseman and it’s playoff time this coming week.
  3. Just picked up and am nervously starting because of a weak matchup against Detroit. Anyone watch today’s matchup? The hit and strikeout rates were good against a much better lineup than he’ll face next. Should manaea owners feel optimistic?
  4. All right handed opposing pitchers this upcoming week for the Dodgers so I'll be starting for round one of the playoffs :D. Any realistic Lux comps? I was burned by Kyle Tucker last year. Hopefully Lux isn't Tucker 2.0.
  5. How long is the leash projected to be for Cease? Obviously Chicago isn't in contention, so they can afford to be patient. Barring absolute atrocious walk totals is Cease a safe bet to remain in the big league rotation the rest of the season? Odd first two starts by the way. First start featured four walks and few hits allowed. The second start featured only one walk, but way too many hits allowed. Completely different ways to fail.
  6. The strikeout and walk rates are fine for Boyd. Home Runs allowed have been the big issue. In a redraft league would it be absurd to drop Boyd? Unless Boyd is dealt to Houston, who seem to maximize pitcher potential, he seems too unreliable to start. Any underlying stats which show reason to expect improvement soon?
  7. So how does the Indian catching situation work? Does Perez have any pitcher in their rotation he doesn't catch for? Based on the game logs I've seen for Perez it seems like he sits about twice per week, which I would think is typical for a starting catcher. Just looking to figure out the formula for how Cleveland rests Perez. Overall I feel good about dropping Ramos for Perez since Ramos was being benched too often. Doesn't seem as though Perez has that problem.
  8. Any reason behind the massive offensive spike? [...] The power is impressive.
  9. For the longest period of time I've considered Detroit, San Diego and San Francisco to be three of the most pitcher friendly parks in baseball. What's caused Detroit to no longer lean pitcher friendly? Maybe it's due to all the bad AL Central pitching. The dimensions are still pitcher friendly I think.
  10. Does the improved defense and potential Coaching staff tweaks significantly override going from an extreme pitcher friendly park to Minute Maid?
  11. Just had my trade offer accepted. It was Doolittle, Glasnow and Hunter Dozier for Kyle Hendricks. On paper it seems like too much to give up but here's my rationale. Best case scenario Glasnow doesn't return to late August. And even then there's the issue of pitch count limits and rust. Honestly he was a guy I was getting ready to sell for 40 cents on the dollar since my league has no IL slots and I couldn't afford to have two IL players. Doolittle is horribly horribly injury prone and I was able to pick up another good closer in Pagan with the newly opened roster spots. Plus we're getting close to the time of year where Closer's will be easy to pick up (due to trades creating openings). As for Dozier I would have had a tough time finding playing time for him. Gallo is my first baseman. And I have Yelich/Soto/Alvarez/Gurriel as my Outfield. And Meadows as a backup. So he was expendable. All for a guy in Kyle Hendricks that is capable of being a top 20 starting pitcher, and is a great WHIP threat to boot (WHIP is the league tie breaker). So any critiques on this move? PS: I know Hendricks has pitched poorly in his first two starts since returning from the IL. But he had no rehab starts, so rust is more than understandable for a control artist. From here on out I'm expecting an ERA of around 3.50 and a WHIP slightly below 1.20. I think that's a solid return for what I gave up.
  12. Any idea how many relief appearances before Nate is relief eligible on ESPN? Picked him up because of the massive save potential but I'm wondering how long I have to wait before I can slot him in a relief role.
  13. Not worried about the two month layoff leading to ineffectiveness? As for Teheran, is it more the met matchup or waiting for him to turn into a pumpkin?
  14. The lack of home runs allowed is unsustainable. So what's a realistic ERA and WHIP from here on out?
  15. Considering starting Mike Clevinger in his return from the DL. He has Texas and Detroit next week. My options to bench are Matt Boyd, who is facing Pittsburgh. Teheran, who is facing the Mets. And Lance Lynn, who is facing Cleveland and the White Sox. Boyd has been struggling lately. And with Teheran and Lynn the question is how much longer will they consider to pitch above their track records. Any of the three worth benching for a player who has been on the DL for about two months?
