  1. Miles Mikolas 2018 Outlook

    Mikolas is the NL's most balanced pitcher.
  2. Nathan Eovaldi 2018 Outlook

    How about now?
  3. Rich Hill 2018 Outlook

    He's pretty old and very injury prone. Yeah, I'd say he does. Especially when they have too many arms as it is.
  4. Rich Hill 2018 Outlook

    This seems they're probably just giving him extra rest going into the break.
  5. Anthony Rizzo 2018 Outlook

    I think dropping him is a bit much (unless league is really shallow or some other atypical constraints) but what are the reasons for such optimism here? In non OBP leagues, is he going to be that different from a Thames, or Smoak, or someone like that to close out the year?
  6. Buy Low/Sell High 2018

    I disagree. I'm not sure which player I prefer between Martinez and Rizzo for the rest of the season. Assuming they get equal playing time, which is a concern with José. Bryant is a bit much but depending on the league setup or what other options an owner has I can see it.

    Trivino with the save for Oakland. Treinen wasn't available today. This is the downside of winning 18/23 - his arm is going to fall off. He should be ready to go tomorrow but Trivino has been great for those of you in deeper leagues.

    1 out. 4 hits. 3 earned runs. Good work, Chris.
  9. Jonathan Villar 2018 Outlook

    Defense is important. I don't know how good those guys have been, but Villar has been awful.
  10. The Home Run Derby "Curse"

    I think it's possible the mental side of being in the HRD can screw up a player for a brief spell. I think it's equally plausible a player was due for an inevitable decline and they then think it's because of the HRD. If they hadn't played in the derby they would have declined anyhow but simply blamed it on something else.
  11. The Home Run Derby "Curse"

    ^^^ Ah, I hadn't realized all the other guys had been offered a spot and declined. I guess Bregman is a decent enough pick if all the better guys passed. And yes, of course their ISO dropped in the second half. As TonyCPSU pointed out with multiple articles in the OP, it's just inevitable regression. Players who outperform expectations make the HR derby. Players who outperform expectations tend to regress. That has zero to do with the HR derby. The league average shouldn't change, but the individual players should.

    If the recent power outburst if real, he's an absolute must own. 30 homers with a great obp is amazing. If the power if a fluke, he's not a must own outside of deeper obp leagues. A great obp but limited power and no steals is too one note to be a must own.
  13. The Home Run Derby "Curse"

    Bregman is the AL representative?? Why not Stanton, Judge, Khris Davis, Jd Martinez, Olsen, Ohtani, or one of Cleveland guys? Ooof on this pick.

    Be thankful that's all it was. It killed our ratios but it could have been worse. He had absolutely nothing.
  15. 7/11 - GAME DAY THREAD

    And he hits a guy. Seriously, whatever damage he does to your ratios tonight count your blessings it wasn't worse. He looks awful.
