  1. Very much so. If they maintain their running style and hand Kamara 500 carries, he's going to break down quick. He's not a very big guy and not a bruiser type - Lat, on the other hand, is a giant brick ****house built like a linebacker. Even if they do attempt to give Kamara a lot of run he will break down quickly, creating a really nice situation for Lat. Sean's likes to run packages where pieces are interchangeable in order to throw off the D and control the speed of the game, so I think we see similar to last year which as we saw with Ingram sets the table for both running backs to carve out yards and catches for the team.
  2. As a registered dietician and analyzing things like his appearance over time in the minors and majors, gait while walking, etc it seems clear there’s evidence of acromegaly, either natural or synthetic. Hope the call up of Bichette helps motivate him to turn that pretty swing into real output as it does look like ownership is challenging him to step it up.
  3. The guy's got 7 HR and 6 steals over the last 30 days with two straight months of hitting over .280. He could very well slump but he's already outperforming expectations at this point. If this keeps up he'll be looking down the pipe at a 30/20 on the ceiling side.
  4. It was a bad day for Chapman today. I hate saves at a cost of metrics and the lowly Bluebirds took him to flavortown tonight.
  5. Guy got positively roasted today - hard to say if it's bc Twins got hot or Snell just lost it.
  6. Kyle [Gibson] looks great today...and gifted 7 runs early by his offense. Not the greatest strike to pitch ratio tonight so far, but still getting it done! He's been stellar since that first month or so.
  7. I don’t understand why people people give a crap about Zac Gallen as a #1 add when the hurlin Hawaiian has now had elite outings in three games including a repeat performance on one of the most patient teams and Philly, in Philly. Yamamoto should be a top player in any league. This guy might be a top 10 pitcher.
  8. Full PPR - Start Chubb @Pit, or one of Chris Thompson (if healthy) or AP @ Giants?
  9. It’s crazy that he is not in a higher leverage role though we shouldn’t be surprised with how bad the Bucs tank. They probably don’t want him winning them games.
  10. I agree to some extent, but as a fellow Cleveland fan, what if our guys had said this earlier about Shapiro/Antonetti, who both do just enough to not get fired? Hell, they've even gotten promoted to the highest levels getting by doing the bare minimum. It's not like Reddick/Keuchel are throwing their GM under the bus - they're just airing (valid) concerns about pitching down the stretch. There's also still time for them to get the waivers guys if I'm not mistaken, so if internally they didn't feel heard internally, maybe this is their only course of action.
  11. Houston needs to do all they can to get Verlander in the waiver period. Getting Verlander (who's been great the last few starts) is a no-brainer, but I think they'll have competition for his services from others, including Cleveland and New York. As a Tribe fan, I'd love to see Verlander come across Erie as I don't fully trust the health of Salazar (or the suckiness of Bauer/Tomlin) and fear we're looking down the barrel of the same issues that faced us during last year's WS (and much stronger competition from the AL East this year in Boston and Yankees). If Astros draw either Red Sox or Yanks I don't see them making it out of their first matchup, record be damned.
  12. I feel like GMs are literally using my fantasy roster to decide which trades actively hurt my team the worst.
  13. I've seen nothing indicating that he's starting or called up for Tuesday except arbitrary ESPN and CBS mentions that he's going tomorrow. Slashing the walks in half is nothing less than incredible but his HR rate concerns me - SunTrust is grading just below average but it's still very high for anyone, no matter how young he is. Hopefully he can suppress that going forward and at least be a nice backend SP4.
  14. I wonder if this guy will be miserable during the regular season but clutch on last minute long bombs during playoffs...
