  1. Zack Godley 2018 Outlook

    Godley is maddeningly inconsistent. After two consecutive horrible starts he dominates against San Fran. Too risky to start this week versus the Padres and Braves?
  2. Hunter Renfroe 2018 Outlook

    Facing two lefties next week, along with four games at hitter friendly Great American Park. I'm assuming Renfroe is a must start?
  3. John Gant 2018 Outlook

    Just picked up. Over the past month: 3.06 ERA, 1.18 WHIP, nearly a K per inning and two quality starts. Are we looking at a finesse pitcher who is due for serious regression as more tape of his repertoire is made available? Also Gant has the Nats due up next week. Two months ago I would have a tough time justifying anyone expect a TORP against the Nats. Should I be more open minded about who to start against Washington now that their playoff hopes are done and they are playing for nothing?
  4. Vladimir Guerrero Jr. - 3B TOR

    Ohhhhhhhh fudge. I'm going to the Red Wing on Thursday with the main motivation of seeing Vlad Jr. Hopefully he's good to go by then.
  5. Brett Anderson 2018 Outlook

    I picked up too late to start this week. Does the matchup versus Seattle next week look better?
  6. Stephen Strasburg 2018 Outlook

    At Philly and versus Milwaukee next week. Too risky to start Strasburg versus quality lineups so soon after returning from the DL?
  7. Corey Knebel 2018 Outlook

    Just picked up Jeffress, but decided not to drop Knebel (at least not yet). If Knebel can somehow manage to put together three or four good outings in a row I would think Counsell would put him back into the Closers spot, and return Jeffress to the Fireman role. From a fantasy standpoint the Fireman role is useless. But in real life its just as important, if not more so, than the Closer's gig.
  8. Corey Knebel 2018 Outlook

    Another bad outing for Knebel yesterday. How many consecutive good outings would Knebel have to put together in order to get the ninth inning job back? Is he safely droppable in a re-draft league at this point?
  9. Yu Darvish 2018 Outlook

    If Darvish had the bone spurs removed after the initial diagnosis would that have been a season ending surgery?
  10. Jose Altuve 2018 Outlook

    Reports are that Altuve could go on a minor league rehab assignment this weekend. In a league where lineups are submitted weekly, as opposed to daily, is Altuve too risky to start next week? Really liking Houston's matchups next week. Three lefties and nothing in terms of elite RHP. So I'm itching to pull the trigger on starting. Is expecting a return from the DL by Tuesday unrealistic?
  11. Stephen Strasburg 2018 Outlook

    Bullpen session coming up tomorrow, and if that goes well Strasburg will return Tuesday against Philly. After all the time he's missed the past two months I'm assuming most owners will be sitting his first start back. DL return is perfect timing though. Strasburg has a chance to be fresh and effective for fantasy playoffs in September.
  12. Harrison Bader 2018 Outlook

    Just picked up and excited that he's playing at Coors next week. What are some realistic Bader comps?
  13. Harrison Bader 2018 Outlook

    So is Bader's playing time going to be effected by O'Neil's return from the DL?
  14. Willy Adames 2018 Outlook

    Can you provide more feedback on Adames? Interested if we're talking about plus speed leading to these stolen bases, or simply taking advantage of a pitcher with a slow delivery. Also is Adames pull happy, or does he spray the ball around the field? And is he prone to chasing pitches? Just trying to gather enough information to see if he would be an upgrade over Ahmed at Short.
  15. Vince Velasquez 2018 Outlook

    The Phillies are in a tight race for the NL East title. And we're talking about a player who has been in the bigs for nearly half a decade. Plus VV isn't even on pace to come close to hitting 200 innings. Lets take the freaking kid gloves off and let him hit 150+.
