  1. Maybe I should have saved some of this for Caleb Smith. I kid. Dude has been money, no complaints here. Just doesn't pitch for a very good team..
  2. Dude is a mental midget! I don't care how good his stuff is. I don't want no part of him. Dude can become the greatest pitcher ever. Dude makes me sick! Now he'll go strike out 10 and not give up another hit. I don't give a damn! /rant
  3. I guess the Red Birds have the scouting report on what to throw Riley.....
  4. Forgive me if this has been mentioned, any word who will be replacing Wacha in the rotation?
  5. They key word in my previous post was there is a *chance*. If Nelson goes into the rotation someone loses their job as a starter and if Nelson gets rocked, or doesn't do very good compared to whoever he replaces has done alright *some* may question why mess with something that wasn't broke. Now, I posted on the last page the Brew Crew are middle-of-the-road in pitching, so there is room for improvement, as a pitching staff. Most who know of Nelson realize when he is in top-form he will be the Brew Crew's ace, and as you stated, will want that work-horse toeing the rubber every 5 days.
  6. Well, Counsell puts Nelson in the rotation, he gets destroyed a game or two, there is a chance you can lose confidence in some of your players. The Brew Crew are one game back, though I hate it, I understand it. I guess I should add, probably looks better from a players perspective if it happens from a injury, or as you stated a meltdown.
  7. If Nelson rolled last night, IMO, this wouldn't be the case. My opinion. Brew Crew are middle of the road in pitching right now - 15th is what I'm seeing. http://www.espn.com/mlb/stats/team/_/stat/pitching
  8. If he plays early, he will have his chance to shine - 3 in San Fran, then 4 @ Coors..... Based on the last two years, he can hit lefties, too.
  9. Sample size is small but his hard% is @ 61%. HUbba bubba!
  10. I love RW. I've been here for years, though I don't post year-round, mostly just baseball season. I value many people's opinions and try to respect even the opinions I don't agree with. What one says in these forums can vary a lot just because of league settings. No disrespect, if we all agree all the time this fantasy baseball thing would be very boring.
  11. Actually, the guy who owns Soroka in my league hates the Braves and it kills me. Metrics isn't a proven science this is true. Tell me this TBBT, would you trade Soroka for Caleb Smith? You'll probably say no because Smith pitches for the Marlins? I'm curious what your answer is and why.
  12. Dude listen up. I love the kid. The kid is smart, can pitch and his composure is incredible, beyond belief, IMO.., but some of the advance metrics *right now* you can't just ignore. Of course some regression is likely, and you should never rule out a selling price because you or nobody else knows what someone may offer. All it takes is a bad day, the right moment. and a offer too good to refuse. And don't for a minute tell me there is no offer good enough to sell Soroka and I'm probably a bigger fan of him than you are. And I said pondering of selling because IMO, you should keep all eyes wide-open and ears never closed.
  13. If it were me, I would really follow the beat writers tonight and especially early tomorrow on *any* comment why the Braves used Newcomb tonight. It may help shed some light on what Snitker was/is thinking. I understand some play in leagues people make moves on a dime, on anything that may turn into a possibility, which means you may not have time to follow what the beat writers are saying.
  14. Interesting. The save Jackson blew the other night was the most unlucky stuff you can imagine against the Brew Crew. Find it hard to believe Jackson lost his job due to that game.
  15. I think anyone who has watched Soroka pitch expected him to roll tonight. Kid is good, but those pondering of selling could be wise, of course depends on what you land. I like the Braves I probably wouldn't sell. Yeah, guess I'm a homer!
  16. Just to elaborate more on his start last night far as velocity etc. Missions Beat Writer‏ @BriggsMissions Pitcher Jimmy Nelson pitches well in his third rehab appearance for the Missions. He went 5 and 2/3 scoreless. Gave up three singles. Struck out eight and walked one. Fastball in the 92-93 range on high end. 86 pitches, 54 for strikes. @Jimmy_J_Nelson @Brewers @missionsmib

  18. Man! I love me some Tommy La Stella! Pretty sure Pujols and Trout have had a few conversations with this guy and it has paid off Big time!
  19. Playing your home games @ Miller park (as a hitter) is a plus if nothing else. Thanks to all these guys all over this. Again, reason I love RW.
