  1. Maybe. Nothing has been said officially yet, but we should know within the next few hours for sure since Sunday Night Baseball is earlier than it used to be tonight. They are off tomorrow, so it wouldn't be super surprising if he sat tonight and came back on Tuesday, but I wouldn't be shocked if he played tonight either. They need every win they can get at this point.
  2. Always nice to be struggling for consistent offensive production and have managers refuse to play one of their best hitters everyday. J.D. Davis with the Mets, and now Avisail Garcia with the Rays even though their offense sucks. I know neither are quite league winners, but it would be pretty helpful to have their solid production to use more than a few times a week...
  3. Rejoining the team next week. Not sure if he will start at all or not, but his suspension ends in time for him to pitch on Wednesday. Since he's not eligible for the postseason of course and with it being the final week, I highly doubt he starts. Or at least not as anything more than an opener. If they used him as a bulk reliever, then he could have sneaky value in the final week, but there's nothing that I know of from the team that has stated how they plan to use him for the final few days.
  4. Way to pat yourself on the back.... but you were right. 😀 Just glad he continued to pitch really good last night.
  5. No, just going by what is on Rotoworld. Nothing has been mentioned for anything beyond his next start, but it is true that it makes no sense to skip him tomorrow and then still pitch him sometime next week.
  6. I'm guessing Gallen is basically shutdown for the final week+ of the season. He's having his start tomorrow skipped. If they were willing to give him another start before the season, you think it would have been tomorrow and then just shut him down afterwards. Sucks since it was a good matchup tomorrow, going up against San Diego.
  7. Kolten Wong left tonight's game with a leg injury. I wasn't watching the game, so I'm not sure if it's anything to worry about, but that's just great. He's been nuts in the 2nd half.
  8. Possibly the worst week of offense I've ever had, which might be hard to believe given some of my posts, but I'm definitely knee deep is crap so far this week. Monday with a .129 team average on a short slate with no HRs and very little else, Tuesday with a .219 average and 2 HRs, and now tonight so far a .170 average with 1 HR and little else. I even made trades recently to try to finally break the cycle, but nope. How a team of Murphy, Abreu, Albies, Lindor, Realmuto, Newman, Soto, Yordan, Mercado, A.Garcia, Lewis, Wong, a was red hot A.Nola, and H.Castro can have a collective day that bad is beyond me. Only had the last two because the Mets refuse to play J.D. Davis everyday anymore and recently picked up Marwin Gonzalez had the day off for whatever reason. For the second season in a row, I can't wait for it to be over. It's not even fun anymore, even if I somehow finish in a decent spot.
  9. I would take Murphy as well. He's been the much better overall hitter in the minors this season. Like I said yesterday, Murphy won't have an opportunity to hit the wall this season, but I think just the simple fact that he has better overall numbers this season in the minors combined with him going berserk like Smith did initially is all I need to see for that choice.
  10. Picked up Kyle Lewis after his back-to-back-to-back HR streak to start his career even if I didn't buy into it because of mediocre minor league numbers. Didn't do anything for two games, including an awful 0-4 with 3 K's game, so I bench him only to see him have another huge game. Play him again tonight and he strikes out 4 times against mediocre to awful pitching. 4 games I didn't own him/play him for: 8-17 with 4 HRs, 8 RBIs, and 4 K's. The 3 games I've played him: 1-13, 0 HRs, 1 RBI, and 8 K's. Helps make me feel fantastic about another awful hitting night no matter how many trades and pick-ups I make. I miss the days when this was actually fun...
  11. According to Hurdle on the radio before the game, Kela is the closer.
  12. In my opinion, if it's not Kela, then I'd stay far away from anybody else unless you are truly desperate. I've watched their relievers come in and pitch like crap too much to want to kill my ratios with anybody else.
  13. Go Gray! Go Verlander! Go Woodruff (even though he's just an opener)!
