  1. St. Louis Cardinals 2019 Outlook

    Yes, a STL Post Dispatch beat writer said he expects Fowler to start the year in RF and Carpenter to 3B. So that leaves Gyorko and Martinez as the odd men out. That is, if everyone is healthy and Fowler doesn’t hit .150 well into May again.

    Wainwright’s contract was up, but they worked out an incentive-laden one-year extension ($2M base, could make up to $8M as a starter or hit different incentives as a reliever). They plan to use Alex Reyes as a starter, but it hasn’t been said how or when. Obviously he’s not ready for a full workload. But I have to think Wainwright and/or Wacha open the door for him at some point if he doesn’t start the year in the rotation.

    In my big money league, with a 4-figure payout difference between 1st and 2nd, my team surged back in several needed categories with a 1.33 ERA and a pile of steals. I beat the odds to go into the last day tied for first. i wound up missing 1st by about .0001 in batting average. Or a single steal plus a strikeout. And I was laid off from my job a few weeks ago, so I really could have used the extra $$.
  4. 2018 Celebration Thread- Victory is Mine!

    In one league, I’ve vented here before about a draft glitch that led me to wind up with Joey Votto instead of my intended pick of JD Martinez, and regretting drafting Kershaw over Scherzer, and dropping Gennett in April. I won the league anyway. Props to Aguilar, Carpenter and Muncy for replacing the power, and Snell for making it up on the pitching side.

    From the gameday story on" "The Cardinals will have some kind of limit on Flaherty, it appears. Check back later in the day for updates and comments from the clubhouse."

    I hope everyone ignored my advice against risking it on Paxton being rusty this week. I’m glad I ultimately did. 160+ innings now to build on for next year.
  7. Rotoworld Blurb Mistake/Argument Thread

    I saw that one. Might have been the most hilarious Rotoworld blurb mistake of the year. Must have been awkward in the Cards' clubhouse after the game!

    16 SBs in the last 30 days. He's made me feel good about not getting Trea Turner.

    Almost had a Bader tater off of Hader. Maybe later.
  10. Tyler White 2018 Outlook

    Well, scratch that first part. Not even in the lineup tonight. I’m still probably starting him for the week. Whenever he starts it’s a great matchup.
  11. Tyler White 2018 Outlook

    Yep, I was looking to sit him for the week after doing little lately. But then I saw those matchups, and I just can't sit a guy with those opponents.

    Scott Servais' comments on Paxton's bullpen session: "He got through it," Servais said of the bullpen session. "He did say he got a little fatigued toward the end of it, but he's pushing through it." Keeping in mind that's only a 40-pitch bullpen session that he reported feeling fatigue in toward the end and having to push through. I'm not confident enough to use him.
  13. Vent & Rant Thread 2018

    Just want to say how much I hate the Sunday before the final week of the season in weekly leagues. Do I start three closers and try to protect in saves, or risk going with two and instead put in a two-start pitcher in case I can gain in strikeouts? Or would that risk ERA/WHIP too much? Ozuna or Franmil? Renfroe or Zimmerman with an @COL? I've spent more hours than I care to admit in front of my computer today going back and forth on these things.
  14. James Paxton 2018 Outlook

    Tough call for weekly leagues. Two starts but coming off a pneumonia-like, weakness-inducing illness and a long layoff. I desperately need a great week for ERA/WHIP, so I don't think I can risk it, even though I could also use a few extra strikeouts. What does anyone else think about his chances this week?
  15. 9/22 - GAME DAY THREAD

    The Fox broadcasters in the game said it was changed to an earned run.
