    If he has anything going for him it's that the Phillies are in contention. And while Kapler is gonna make it needlessly complicated, at a certain point he's going to stop using Neris and bad pitchers in spots where they blow games. As opposed to noncontending team that wants to build a less valuable RP up to trade him. I'm optimistic

    Hopefully but not 100% sold yet, it's Kapler. Very encouraging, at the least. I think he will get more chances. Just would not be surprised if Kapler makes it frustrating.
  3. May Closer Thread 2018

    Just traded for him yesterday, hoping for a quick inning two out save but don't expect that lol. Doubt Kapler would let him go two unless it's maybe under 10 pitch inning
  4. Anthony Rendon 2018 Outlook

    No. He's been injured and underperforming. But still has a .358 OBP and .825 OPS. Rendon is one of the most reliable ratios guys in the league, and thats what you should have drafted him knowing. He's up there with Kris Bryant as far as his hit tool goes.

    I went with Santana figuring that some people might look at Feliz's bad stats (past 3 outings) and leave him on the wire. If he gets the first save opp I'll be monitoring closer than anyone else and grab him then.
  6. May Closer Thread 2018

    Went with Santana. Figure you just have to go with the usage, even if Rodriguez is the higher upside guy. Have to think for a may or maybe not contending team like the Pirates, saves are an opportunity to turn someone into trade value. I don't know enough about the situation to say how they value Santana and Rodriguez. If one is expendable and if they want one to be on their next contending team.

    Feliz has been hot garbage lately and the other guy has been used in low leverage, meh idk

    That's exactly what I was thinking watching his first two "quality" starts and 3rd outing of the year. You have had to watch him pitch to see how truly terrible he has looked. K:BB has been by far the worst in baseball. Through those first 3 starts he had thrown like half his pitches for balls. I had never wanted to bail on a player so bad. Managed to flip him for Kevin Gausman who started the season with that 6 er dud. Don't worry though my team is still doing plenty bad, lol. Someone said he looked like a bad A-Ball pitcher out there, thats the descriptor thats stuck for me. There has been no reason for optimism with him, at all.

    Yeah that is very true and something I try to always avoid. But all his peripherals last year were so good. I felt like he was gonna be a solid #2 for the price of a #3. Maybe the velocity dip has something to do with it. He’s nibbling around the the plate a lot, and just missing at other times. If your repertoir is mainly just a curve (since fb has declined, also hurting his offspeed), and you’re afraid to challenge guys in the strikezone, you’re gonna have problems. Curveball isn’t going to always bail you out of 1-0 and 2-0 counts, let alone 3-0 like I have seen him be so many times. Batters can just sit on those counts. If he actually challenges fb chage they will get a good pitch to hit. If he keeps nibbling/pitching scared they have a good chance to walk.If he drops thecurbe behind in the count, it’s not always going to fall into the strikezone.

    This is not a brag because my team is not doing well this season. I sold Godley after his 5/8 start and am glad I did. The 3-0 counts, nibbling around the plate were hard to watch. But I'll be damned if he didn't sound like one of the safest bets to draft going into the season. Thought he would be a solid #2 with a chance for more. Maybe his price was a little inflated, I know I grabbed earlier than maybe I had to, because I wanted him.

    If my team had allowed one less hit today, I would have won If this was ruled an error instead of a hit, I would have won Tell me this will be appealed and ruled an error, frens.

    I know he's been good lately but I swear Nola always lets leadoff guys on and struggles 1st inning

    Moderately concerned about Cody Allen's recent overuse, performance, and then lack of use. April 17th to now: 10 appearances, 9 IP Since April 27th: 4 IP, 6 ER, 6 walks, 9 hits, 2 K's He has not been used since May 6th, which was when he had his first blown save. I think he is likely fine, and that something would have come out by now if otherwise, but still something to take note of. When over-analyzing these situations you have to be ahead of the curve to ever benefit from them.
