  1. SP Eligible Relievers 2018

    Smith in SF and even Hicks in STL have been getting opps as well. C Burnes (SP - Mil) A Cole (SP/RP - NYY) are 2 that I have my eye on right now.

    Yeah but didn't Hill pitch out of the pen literally a day before? This simple act can't be our only gauge for who will start post-ASB... or can it? Geez this is frustrating.

    After Kershaw, how do we rank the remaining five?

    As a Hill owner I'm cool with this decision. I'd rather have him miss the odd start and have a better chance at repeating last year's post-ASB performance than get hurt... again.

    3/3 tonight with 1 BB and 3 RBI. He could end this season around .290/.400 with 15 HR, 80 RBI, 70 R. Obviously not a huge line in standard 5x5, but for deeper leagues/ OBP leagues that's a solid contribution. In a keeper I'd be all over this on the cheap.
  7. July Closer Thread 2018

    That would be a firm no. Giants don't have the payroll to sign another high-end closer and already have a deep bullpen that is performing better than expectations.
  8. Brandon Nimmo 2018 Outlook

    Yeah but he went 1 for 7 yesterday with 4 Ks. That projects to like 400 strikeouts on the year dude. Drop immediately and add Reynolds IMO. That guy is on pace for 50 home runs. Easy money. Eassssy money.

    Bingo. I bought waaayyy back, maybe second month. Vazquez is another great example of why looking short term is a terrible fantasy baseball strategy.

    I own him as my fourth OF (start 3 and 2 util) in a 16 team league. He's got way way more upside than most guys you could pull off the waivers. This panic after a slump is frankly laughable. Baseball is a long season and if we're going to drop guys after a bad week then we're gonna miss out on a lot of good rebounds and live anxiously. Think Devers, Carpenter, Votto, Goldy, Altuve. They're obviously not all in the same league but you gotta think long term.

    Don't look now but Vazquez is throwing straight filth. Last month: 13.2 IP, 8 SV, 1.32 ER, 1.02 WHIP, 25 K. Gross.

  13. July Closer Thread 2018

    Actually he hasn't tried to force Melancon into the role yet. Smith will close until Melancon is ready to resume duties; I predict post-ASB it'll be all Melancon. I say this as a Smith owner and I've had him since he returned from the DL, long before he was picking up saves.
  14. Matt Adams 2018 Outlook

    Off the DL, goes 4/5 with 3 R. Looks like he'll be at 1B against righties until Zimmerman comes off the DL but who knows when that'll be. [Removed Cool Story]
  15. Joey Votto 2018 Outlook

    I guess at this point it's fair to ask: when has Votto ever let you down? In 2014 he hit .255 but was injured. In 2012 he was also injured and only hit 14 HRs... but... he hit .337/.474. Joey has never hit less than 24 HRs in a full season. Relax.
