    F Cron and F Dickerson. Start them they do jack. Sit them they go crazy on bench. O for 875 in lineup 800 for 801 on bench. Crons Disease and C Dickitis.

    All you gotta do with price is start him vs bad teams and sit against good teams and your era will be like 1. ABC poker. I mean fantasy.
  4. Kyle Hendricks 2018 Outllook

    Just so you know I am not bull****ting about my costanza super powers, I have sat him thrice this year, once at Coors (W) and then once at MIL and then at SF, his best two games of the year. And today I started him based on him saying he found mechanical adjustment in the sf game. If he made it out od the fifth he would have at least gotten an ugly win. The only way he turns it around this year is if I drop him, which I am considering. But maybe I will keep him and jinx the Cubs out of spite.

    Public service announcement, I am starting... Costanza Smurf over here. For what it's worth, with Hendricks I don't think the wind marries a lot. If he's right he will get grounders. If he's off I don't think if inward wind will help much. (And rotowire says wind is blowing right to left at 13mph.)

    The hitters I streamed this year (to replace injured players and slumping players) are a collective 149 for 721, a .207 BA. And it's inflated by a 10 for 29 line from Tom Murphy. Without these guys, my team BA would be .278 now, the best in the league. Instead it's .263, middle of the pack. Worse yet, the cold guys I sit will usually go crazy on the bench, so the BA SHOULD have been around .285 if I just left the starters in the lineup. And remember, I only stream guys who are hitting well lately. 9 times out of 10, will stop any hitting streak dead in its tracks. And I stream them against mediocre pitchers. Curious if anyone is worse at this than me? I should just put the team on autopilot.

    I spot started some guys vs DET. Got burned. So DET is not an automatic walkover. Price does beat up on little guys though.

    That was before my time. I didn't know they were acquired via trade. Thanks for the info. Didn't the Mess have a very good GM before the 90s? Was his name Cashin or something like that? Seems to have gone downhill after that. Notice the good trades mostly dried up after that.

    And got destroyed by a small market, but superior, team.

    I read on FG that his legs are healthy and stronger so he's throwing harder. Plus, I think he's throwing more foreseam fbs up. Today, many hitters are looking to elevate and uppercut the ball, so sinkers actually play to hitters' strengths. The adjustment to more high FBs would explain the higher K rate and the FB rate. I read this some weeks ago so I am not sure I remember the details correctly.

    I carried him for three weeks without starting. Guess if I started him for the first time today... Sorry yall. Everything i do backfires. Screwed yall too.

    He has pitched more than 150 innings twice in his career. He debuted in 2008. He's at around 112 now so the clock's ticking. But at this point you still have to thank him for the contribution so far this year.

    Go McWho! This dude came outta no where to help me win in 2014. Always been rooting for him since. Vulture win today perhaps? Another former Mess who went to a better coached team and became good. The rot goes all the way upstairs to the Wilpons. I digress. Anyway go McWho!
