    Starting tonight vs Minnesota. Looks like he put up 4 decent innings in his last relief appearance, so he's somewhat stretched out already too... might be worth a stream.
  2. Moves that made or broke you this year?

    Traded Giancarlo Stanton and Zack Godley for Nola & Greinke before the draft in a keeper league... those two carried my pitching staff all year. Playoffs start next week!
  3. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    I know he's now eligible at both positions for next year but, just wondering if you're still asking this question

    Returning from the DL today, starting against Texas.
  5. Got one more week of regular season in my league (I've already clinched) and then two (hopefully!) weeks of playoffs. Was about to pick up White when Votto came off the DL. Is it crazy to drop Votto for White ROS?
  6. Ozzie Albies 2018 Outlook

    In non-keeper leagues, is anybody thinking it's time to cut bait for the playoffs? He has 8 hits, all singles, in his last 44 ABs. Seems like he hit the wall pretty hard.

    Nobody shuts down their ace for the better part of two months to rest them for the playoffs.
  8. Touki Toussaint 2018 Outlook

    Yahoo has Toussaint listed as Friday's starter, but I don't see anywhere else confirming that so take it with a grain of salt.

    There's absolutely no way the Red Sox brought him off the DL to pitch one game against a bad team only to put him right back on the DL as part of some "rest" plan. Pitchers (and their agents) would not sign off on the team reporting a phantom injury to their throwing shoulder, ever. They'd call it a hamstring injury or something if that was the case.

    Cessa just flopped again yesterday though. Might only take one more like that until they relegate him to the pen ROS.
  11. Eloy Jimenez - OF CWS

    I thought the Super 2 passed about two months ago?

    Oddly, his OBP is higher against lefties due to his 22/18 BB/K ratio. That still puts him at a .780 OPS against lefties on the year. Probably due to a small sample-size, but it's interesting how much more he walks against lefties than righties on a per-plate appearance. If he keeps that up it may be what makes him salvageable as a keeper/non-platoon player.
  13. Alex Bregman 2018 Outlook

    Now let's get him some starts at 2b when Correa is activated tomorrow, while Altuve's still on the DL!

    Toronto is also not a "smaller market team" by any stretch of the imagination. They take a hit in the rankings below due to "road equity" (not having a large draw when they play on the road), but as far as their home market goes it is a well-populated area and very supportive of the team. https://scholarblogs.emory.edu/esma/2018/03/16/mlb-fan-marketing-report-2018/ Additionally, Forbes attributes more of their $1.35 billion value to their market size than to any other contributing factor. "Brand" contributes the least, and it seems to me that having a potentially once-in-a-generation level hitter on your team might help increase your brand's value. https://www.forbes.com/teams/toronto-blue-jays/
