    Great. I’ll drink them then! over under 2 XBH against the worst pitcher I’ve seen this season vs LH bats in Matt Harvey?

    Dodgers never saw a 10 day DL stint that didn’t look appetizing to them.

    I watched his start today on mlb gamcast and he was sitting 91-92 early, and then as he got into 6-7 it jumped all over. To John Hicks in 6th he blew him away with a 96 MPH fzsfball. But batter before he was 91. Then against Jacoby Jones in 7th he threw 94-96 and then to next batter (Iglesias) who was his last he threw 89. His velocity variation is wild. I don’t know if mlb.com isn’t tracing a 2 seam/cutter or what, but I’ll have to actually tune into a start to watch him.

    Something us owners should get use to saying. That god awful WHIP will be yielding many more in our near future

    When I was in preschool not everyone liked Story time either. Looks like some things never change.

    .125 BABIP. Yeah, that’s not going to last long.

    Agreed, I’m still very optimistic about his 2018, and even more so beyond. Tons of tools. As weather heats up I look for more power to show. The back to back SBs is a good sign as well. I think this guy ends up with some happy totals this year when it’s all said and done.

    Cue up 30-20 season. Tremendous.

    It’s getting bleak. He’s left with more injuries this year than he’s had good games. Still a professional hitter, I’ll give him a decent amount of rope but my optimism is waning. Back, hip already so far this year. What’s next?

    Crazily he throws a QS. Settled in okay. Wasn’t overly impressed with anything I saw.

    I didn’t realize Chatwood was Rick Vaughn?

    0-2 to Severino and literally drops a hanging curve right at knees. Sorry for in game commentary in his thread but I just think people should know this guy still sucks. His command is some of the worst in all of baseball. Big arm talent. But at this point who knows if it will ever come together? He made the Mets decision extremely easy though.

    Back to AAA he goes. Still has horrific command of his pitches.

    I don’t worry about K rate as much with Story as I do with other hitters. A lot of people don’t buy into the notion, but I’ve made a living off rostering Rockies since I started playing fantasy baseball in 2001. His K rate is over 5% less at home than in the road (last season). There’s pretty drastic splits with a lot of Rockies hitters over the last few decades. I don’t really expect him to hit above .250 at this point. Any guy over 33% K rate is going to struggle to hit over that figure unless they have an ungodly BABIP. But being surrounded by so many good hitters and being in a top 5 lineup will ease the burden of the lower average. If he was hitting 6th - 7th for say the Padres or Giants he wouldn’t be rosterable because those are big pitchers parks and the lineups are typically pretty mediocre in terms of runs. I always try to stack my teams with guys who I think will be in good lineups because it just gives a much higher probability of consistent runs, rbis etc in terms of accruing counting stats. When I judge Rockies hitters I look at them at a difference scope than I do with normal bats.

    Where are you getting your numbers? https://www.fangraphs.com/statss.aspx?playerid=12564&position=SS fangraphs has his K rate at 34% last year and 35% this year.
