  1. Joey Lucchesi 2018 Outlook

    The skills are real for Lucchesi, at least so far. 14 percent swinging strike rate is no joke. Rotographs is going to regret touting Chris Stratton and Kennedy with their crap 8.8 and 7 percent swinging strike rates over Lucchesi. Can't wait to watch him pitch again.

    Norris isn't exactly locking down the role. He's given 3 runs in the past 5 innings and too many baserunners. He needs to pitch a lot better than that to make a good case for keeping the role.

    Britton is apparently throwing again. It was odd that they always said committee, and then never used O'Day or Givens who they said were in the committee... Britton could be back in a month.

    Jonathan Villar sucks. Bad.
  5. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    I didn't mean he was bad, I meant that he hasn't been so good that he's keeping an elite closer from getting the job back. The Orioles won't even name him close which I think says something about their hopes for Britton.
  6. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    I can see Britton getting that role back almost immediately. He had a leg injury and previously was considered near elite. Brach has not been that good, and it seems like the team is leaving open the door for Britton by calling it a committee since Britton went down. I'd think Britton has about 100x more chance of being a good closer this year than Melancon.

    It's a contract year too.. Donaldson wants to play and be healthy to get a huge contract...
  8. Matt Carpenter 2018 Outlook

    Yep, he has like 15 or 16 walks.

    After several more weeks when stats actually stabilize. Maybe go ahead and drop Votto too and other struggling stars after 3 weeks, that's always a good move.

    Strickland also blew a really tough one, a 1 run lead with Goldy leading off the inning. Goldy is one of the best hitters in the game and Pollack is on fire right now. The fact that they still won the game probably helps with the impact on his role as well.
  11. Cincinnati Reds 2018 outlook

    Price had this coming. Too many lineups with Hamilton and Peraza, the worst hitters on the team, batting 1 and 2. I actually thought the Reds were taking the tanking to the next level with their lineup cards... Did Price not realize you are supposed to bat your best hitters and on base guys at the top of the order?
  12. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Strickland just blew it.

    Ouch. It's tough to hit well enough to make up for doing stuff like this too frequently.
  14. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    It's not a traditional committee either... Clearly I am just really slow though.
  15. Mar/April Closer Thread 2018

    Hader isn't the closer in any form of the traditional sense. He's not going going to be the closer. If he happens to get a save, its happenstance. If you want to cite recent usage, he goes 2 innings so he will get saves if he comes in for the 8th... That will have the effect of him not being available the next day, like today. Closers usually just pitch the 9th so that they can go multiple days in a row.
