  1. As long as he's leading MLB in barrels per plate appearance. No way I'm dropping this guy.
  2. Assuming some people picked up Mallex Smith as a Delino replacement. With Delino back and Mallex Smith having a pretty good start, who do you pick out of these two players?
  3. Thanks guys, I think you're all pretty close to what I was thinking... Leaving Stratton on the wire for now.
  4. - Chris Stratton - Nick Pivetta - Reynaldo Lopez - Joey Lucchesi - Jon Gray
  5. I was afraid to start him against Houston....didn't realize Correa was out. Great line again. Anyone catch the game?
  6. I feel like with Stanton injury risk should be a big consideration... Also age although neither are particularly old.
  7. Clearly it should be Molson Cheap Canadian beer...stronger then most american beers (5% abv)... but still about as cheap as a PBR.
  8. This guy still getting no love in the forums. I'm thinking he will be a nice bench player for me this year.
  9. I can kind of understand why he's not getting a lot of attention. His FIP indicates that he's due for regression and he not striking out a ton of guys so you don't have a lot of room for error with him. That said, I don't doubt that he took a major step forward the last few years. Completely different pitcher the last two years and I think he's more than capable of repeating last years performance (minus the 20 wins).
  10. Ok, so probable the least sexy name out there. Doesn't k a lot of guys has a FIP well above his ERA last year and is projected by most mainstream sites to regress this year. Never mind the fact that he's not likely to get 20 wins again. That said, I watched a lot of his games last year (jays fan) and I have to say that of all the Jays pitchers he was far and away my favorite to watch. Consistently hitting his spots, consistently keeping batters guessing. I definitely don't expect him to suddenly strike out 200+ people, but I like him at the price you can get him (pick 210 in my last draft). He's a consistent pitcher that I think can maintain a good era / whip, will eat innings and pickup a decent number of QS/Ws. Also per Eno Sarris there may be a good reason to beleive that he will continue to beat his FIP and xFIP as he apparently has the biggest gap in vertical movement between his 4 seamer and 2 seamer in baseball. http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/j-a-happs-newest-fastball-secret/ Sometimes you need a couple of un-sexy names to balance out a decent fantasy rotation. Thoughts?
  11. It looked to me like he couldn't locate his fastball at all last night. Several times Jaso set up inside and he missed high and away. I think that's why you saw so many sliders/curveballs tonight. Considering how bad his fastball looked I was pretty impressed with that start.
  12. Agreed, I would trade him for grienke right now if I could. Should be able to do it considering grienke had a rough outing last night as he sometimes does. In a keeper/dynasty league I would consider trading him for bumgarner.
  13. Bump... Just wanteed to say great dicussion guys. Threads like these are what make this forum great. (Single tear)
  14. There has been a lot of talk about Lincecum's declining stats over the last couple of years. I know his stats have declined and typically I would be more worried about declining KK/BB but he has such a solid delivery that I'm just not sold on projections of this guy continuing to decline. In my mind he's a stud. Period. He's still fairly young and I could see him having a nice rebound in his K/BB ratio this year. I'll even go out on a limb and say that a rebound would be more likely than continued regression given he has put up some absolutely ridiculous numbers in the past. Basically I'm chalking last year's stats to post World Series off-season partying and think he will be refocused for this year (A-la Rihanna-less Matt Kemp Circa 2011). Bottom line: Studs are studs and I think he can be gotten at a good price in keeper and re-draft leagues.
  15. I know his numbers and velocity have been declining a bit, but despite the trend I think his numbers could easily improve this year. You have to remember he was coming off of a long playoff heading into last season. Generally speaking this guys mechanics are really solid, so injury risk is pretty low, and he could show the benefit of some added rest going into this year. I think if there's a time to buy low on Tim Lincecum it's this year. He's only 27....and despite his "decline" last two years he's still putting up top 10 pitching numbers.
