  1. Wow, we must have the exact same roster!
  2. What are your projections for him if he bats lead-off this year? I feel like the steals will never be there like in the minors, and although he has some pop it is useless at the top of the line-up. I feel like it was just yesterday we all were excited by his 30-40 season in the minors, and today he signs for 1 year, $3.9MM. I thought he was going to play his way into a big contract, but has been somewhat underwhelming. http://www.crawfishboxes.com/2017/1/13/14267160/george-springer-signs-one-year-3-9-million-deal-with-astros-avoid-arbitration

  5. TribLive Gregory Polanco (strained left hamstring) appears ready to be to be activated from the disabled list Thursday. Polanco ran the bases at full speed Wednesday. “Early responses have been positive,” head athletic trainer Todd Tomczyk said. “He feels really good right now.”
  6. I hate when I have what I think is a good team on paper, but they just can't all get it going at the same time. So frustrating!
  7. 1. Javier Baez (R) 2B 2. Albert Almora Jr. (R) CF 3. Kris Bryant (R) 3B 4. Anthony Rizzo (L) 1B 5. Ian Happ (S) LF 6. Jason Heyward (L) RF 7. Addison Russell (R) SS 8. Miguel Montero (L) C 9. Kyle Hendricks (R) P Emergency Averted!
  8. Is anyone else having trouble with MLB.com? It appears as this weird non-legible mess. I thought it might just be my browser, so I tried another and it was like that again.
  9. Yeah, trying to sell him and Bellinger now. Bums.
  10. This is the kind of move that if made in my league, I sprint to the waiver wire to claim Schwarber. It could work out, but I wouldn't have been able to do it.
  11. Hayward back tomorrow. Fingers crossed that Happ stays up!
  12. Can any one familiar with CBS Baseball help me out with a question on the waiver system? The team with the #1 waiver spot lost out to another team for a pick. How do I verify if this is a system glitch, or if the team just didn't put the claim in correctly? We are set up for "The waiver order resets after each weeks' games.", and the team with the #1 made no other transactions for the week that would have moved him to the bottom of the list. Thanks in advance.
  13. The whole video is on mlb.com
  14. His reaction with the trainers after is what tells the tale. He looked like he was in real pain.
  15. This write up had some good information. Including a video in which his GM discusses his swing mechanics. https://www.google.com/amp/www.letsgotribe.com/platform/amp/2017/5/16/15645532/bradley-zimmer-scouting-report-swing-columbus-clippers-cleveland-indians
  16. Denver Post Story, working his way back from a left-shoulder injury that landed him on the 10-day DL on May 10, is feeling much better and is close to being ready to resume full-scale baseball activities. “I feel really good and (Monday’s off day) gave me a complete day of rest,” Story said. “I feel pretty much back to normal. I got to take groundballs and swing the bat a little. (Wednesday) will be pretty much my normal (pregame) routine.” Story doesn’t have a minor-league rehab schedule worked out, but he’s eager to start playing again and test his swing.
  17. Who ya calling dorky brah!
  18. Are there any expressions in baseball or fantasy baseball that just drive you nuts? The one that I keep hearing or seeing is, "the ball just sounds different off his bat". It's like, it's not enough to say this person has potential or looks like a great hitter. We have to add that extra thing in. Sorry if this is in the wrong thread or just dumb.
  19. Hey, where are my instant results!?!!
  20. Story (shoulder) took dry swings Tuesday, Thomas Harding of MLB.com reports. http://www.cbssports.com/fantasy/baseball/news/rockies-trevor-story-takes-practice-swings-tuesday/
  21. 3 @MIN (.500/.500/.600 vs.MIN) - never played at Target Field 3 @CIN (.238/.273/.238 vs.CIN) 4 @PHI (.290/.333/.452 vs.PHI)
  22. That contract though. I think Cespedes goes back to batting 3rd.
  23. This guy has been so consistent. Just plug and play.
