  1. 49ers defense was very good in those days too...I miss all those guys. I'm 100% with you, loved them all. A good way to figure who you think is best, IMO You get one QB for the Super Bowl whose your QB (present and past)? Right now this second not so sure I wouldn't take Mahomes (as my present QB). The guy is so difficult to defend. Of course, Mahomes has a ways to go before we see how good he turns out to be, far as a career. At the end of the day. hard for me not to take my boy Montana. Sure, I'm a bit bias, if you want to call it that.
  2. He wasn't too bad, but Kobe won a championship without him, too. I pretty much agree with Go Hawks on this subject. Pardon me for getting off-topic. Montana fan here. Brady's two idols growing up - Montana and Young. Being a Montana fan, I never really liked Young. Many would argue Young was just as good and so on. My argument always was if you learned from the best you would be pretty good, too.
  3. Looks like we'll get around 4 starts . First coming against Baltimore. Bad news is he has to build up his pitch count. Pondering that, may take two starts to get a decent pitch count. So, maybe 2 starts far as regular season goes?
  4. I think the Marlins will be pondering your same thoughts sooner rather than later.
  5. Luzardo is one of the best pitchers in the whole A's organization. If he is ready, he will be pitching for the A's, and will be in the starting rotation, especially if the A's are in the playoff hunt. IMO, the only thing holding Luzardo back is Luzardo and that's due to health.,
  6. Yeah just like there was no room for Manaea in the starting rotation,
  7. A stud he is. At one point, he fanned 8 in a row. Against the Braves and this was like the 3rd time they have seen him. I have a tough time deciding my favorite, deGrom or McNeil. So, I have a favorite hitter and pitcher! Nobody probably cares about that but probably me....Regardless, It was a nice night if you're a deGrom fan/owner, or both.
  8. I'm seeing 25th (Sunday) @ Oakland.
  9. Come on Pillar! Hit it to the moon!
  10. Stros and Tigers, man please! Vegas is all over that series.
  11. Jesus Luzardo (shoulder) allowed just one run over 4 2\/3 innings Tuesday night with Triple-A Las Vegas. src: Martin Gallegos Looks like he threw 78 pitches. We're getting there.
  12. So the Pirates will score next season?
  13. Come on Padres! Give my boy Quantrill some run support!
  14. Gallen has no-hit stuff. Gets those walks under control (puzzling) Watch out!
  15. I like Gallen as a pitcher. Dude has good stuff. I'm not sure i like his mechanics, though.
  16. He's avoiding TJS for 6 weeks. This is true. Doesn't take a brain scientist to figure this one out. Dude hasn't been right all season. The pressure to live up to these BIG contracts is no easy task.
  17. If Marte remains out, you may want to consider Wilmer Flores - 20 PA, batting .600, with 4 home runs, and 0 K's. Has my attention because I lost McNeil and will add if he's in the lineup tonight. Problem is not sure how serious Marte's back is. Back tightness doesn't sound like a IL thing but you never know. Then again, hot as Flores has been, manager may find a place for him. For the most part, pitchers Flores will face this week is favorable.

  19. Webb will stick in the big-league rotation for now, Maria I. Guardado of MLB.com reports. He won his big-league debut Saturday against the Diamondbacks, and figures to pitch in next weekend's two-game series in Oakland. Madison Bumgarner may be bumped up to pitch Saturday, which would give Webb seven days rest in between starts.
  20. I'm trying to decide out of Pillar and Yast.
  21. And right now the Phillies aren't the Dodgers. And not every manager is going to think the same. You don't have to buy he needs to stay fresh. I'm buying it. I think it is wise. Of course, many catchers play more than Smith, he's a rookie. Not every season a catcher ends up being the starting catcher for a MLB team as a rookie, especially for a team loaded like the Dodgers. We can agree to disagree.
  22. He is the Dodgers number one catcher now. You have to consider his defense as well as his offense. Watching the Marlins game the other day, WS took a beating where the Marlins put up, what 13 runs? Catcher is a brutal position! You want some life in those legs come playoff time. You're a smart guy and I'm sure you're well aware, but ponder from a Dodgers perspective (The team). The full picture. I'm a BIG fan of Will Smith, and think it is only a matter of time before he is the best catcher in the game, IMO... Of course, I agree when he's not in the lineup it is a big loss, from a fantasy perspective.
  23. I think the potential is there. Problem is his best put-away pitch is the slider, but seems to me when he depends on the slider so much he starts having problems. Shoulder, arm etc. When healthy he has a plus fastball, too, or was a plus pitch, anyway. Not sure about now - not seeing any recent velocity readings. Was in the 94-97 range.
  24. Says "tough". Talk is talk. Melvin knows what he is doing.
  25. Yep. Rich Hill will be one of them. Of course, that is if he comes back without any set backs. Edit: I see I'm late to the party with the Hill news. Never mind.
