  1. According to this RW blurb, he may not be activated until later this week, if not the weekend: George Springer (quad) is not active for Tuesday night's series opener against the White Sox. Springer was initially aiming to return to the Astros last Friday, but he's still working his way back from a left quad injury. It might be another couple days. Jake Marisnick is starting in center field and batting ninth Tuesday versus Chicago left-hander Derek Holland. Daily Slant: Despite Springer's absence, the Astros are still the top overall offense on the board, especially the right-handed bats in this lineup. White Sox starter Derek Holland has allowed a whopping 23 HRs to RHBs already this year (2.36 HR/9) with a porous 5.7 K-BB%, and his 40.4 Hard% allowed is simply icing on the cake. Target the Astros with confidence.
  2. Dawel Lugo, Sergio Alcantara amd Jose King? That's all they got for JD? wow
  3. oops Dodgers manager Dave Roberts said Sunday that Corey Seager (hamstring) "feels considerably better" and could be available off the bench. There had been some speculation that Seager might be placed on the disabled list with a hamstring injury he suffered Friday, but it doesn't appear it will come to that. The star shortstop will miss a second straight start but it sounds like he could return to the lineup relatively soon. Gotta love the way this forum has regressed with these quality posters.

  4. Just a heads up, he was traded to Cinn in the Straily deal, not a Marlin anymore.
  5. Well, we have to remember how the Nats treat their closers, remember when Storen was LIGHTS OUT, they still went out and brought in paps relegating Storen to the set up roll, can never forget what that did to Storen's confidence, he's never been the same. I own Koda in a dynasty, I'm skeert
  6. Is it his right knee? He's had issues with that knee dating back to early 2016, then had another issue during winter ball, something to keep in mind for dynasty and keeper owners. Kid has soo much potential, hope it isn't going to become cronic. edited to say, yup, it's the same knee.
  7. Sharks first pitch to bricey tonight needs to be behind him, could see Shark shrugging his shoulders saying, well, it was an attempt at a distraction, wasn't trying to hit him, it slipped.
  8. Funniest part of this thread? Everyone on his jock about crappy plate approach, but those same peeps are defending Story in his thread, go figure.
  9. Pretty gusty here in the Bay Area right now, forecast has 25mph gusts out to CF starting around 5pm. Seeing Cueto struggle with the long ball so far, something to look into closer to game time.
  10. Saw him touch 95 a few times, sat 92-94 mostly, looked pretty good stuff wise. Seems to be over the injury, lets hope he heats up as the temps do here. Sonny dazes ahead.
  11. Major difference here is, no one will want to take you behind the shed if you talk negatively about Thames. Over in Story's thread, if you mention ANYTHING negatively about story, they'll troll you in every other thread telling you that he plays in coors field, good for 35, 270. because he has all of 600ish abs, oh, and he plays in coors. But seriously, Thames is gonna Thames, he don't need no stinkin coors, he just needs the reds pitching!!.
  12. Food for thought: Righties are hitting .359 and slugging .651 against Morton so far this season. Don't see this start as a slam dunk against a potentially dangerous Texas O in that bandbox Houston calls a park. Good luck to those of you starting him.
  13. This conversation kinda reinforces my opinion that we need a dynasty sub forum for dynasty conversations. So many threads have conversations just like this, geared for the redraft crowd. Dynasty owners have to weed through these posts where you're chastised for thinking about DL'ing someone like Bird from the redraft crowd. We need a dynasty platform where like minded dynasty/ deep keeper owners can have intelligent conversations about our dynasty players.
  14. Monte Moore was the voice of the swingin A's during their 70's 3pete, great voice, but my all time favorite was Bill King, called A's and Raider games, even though he was a radio announcer, you felt like you could actually see the game with the way he announced. So much passion. To this day, every time the Raider's score a TD, can hear Bill's TOUCH DOWN RRRRRAAAAIIIIDDDDEEERRRRSSSSSS!
  15. Thanks for the link
