  1. Career splits: April - .239/.364/.428 May - .216/.347/.372 June - .243/.353/.446 July - .267/.382/.493 August - .250/.348/.424 September - .264/.388/.483 or if this is easier: Pre-ASB - .237/.358/.423 Post-ASB - .258/.371/.464
  2. I just wonder what the Brewers can reasonably expect to get back in a trade for Feliz when he was a free agent this offseason and there wasn't really much interest then. He signed for just $5.35 million plus another $1.5 million in incentives (tied to whether or not he's closing games). The Brewers can save themselves $1.5 million in incentives by simply making sure he doesn't reach whatever threshold in saves this season. With how he's pitched, it's arguably the smart move from a baseball and a business sense.
  3. If you're grasping at anything, there's this: Last 14 days: 6 Runs, 1 HR, 3 RBI, 1 SB, .262/.856. He's 11-for-42 with 7 BB and 4 Ks. Last 7 days: 3 runs, 1 HR, 3 RBI, .318/.991. He's 7-for-22 with 3 BB and 2 Ks. Drawing walks, striking out less. 6 of his 10 doubles this season have come in the last 14 days, and obviously his only homer of the season was last night.
  4. Thank you sir! I guess even though he didn't remain the pitcher of record, he doesn't become eligible for a hold after the fact? (I couldn't care less, but guy in my league is whining)
  5. I can buy that, but I do find it odd that there is no reference to what inning a save or hold can first be recorded in the definition of either holds or saves.
  6. Fellow MR people, I need your help understanding a scoring/stat issue that come up in my league. Last night Tyler Duffey came into the game in the 5th inning of a 7-5 game with a runner on first base. He retired the next batter to end the 5th. He then allowed a solo homer and a single to start off the 6th, and was lifted from the game with the score 7-6. Isn't this a hold? I know it wasn't a pretty performance, but he entered with the tying run at the plate and exited with the lead intact. It's just a single hold but I hate when I can't figure out the ruling. The only thing I could think is that you can't get a hold that early in the game (5th inning) but that would be news to me and I haven't found that in any of the official definitions of the stat.
  7. Yeah, it's hard to believe that he's at a pretty serviceable .245/.321/.426 line right now. It feels like he's been worse than that, but he's raised his average from .194 to .245 in just 7 games. Still think he hits 25 HR and drives in 70 runs when all is said and done. Glad I held tight.
  8. Buy low? His season numbers are still hideous after that gem last night...
  9. Odor and Napoli have been struggling real hard so this is a nice opportunity for Gallo to try to cement himself as a middle of the order bat.
  10. Rangers now admitting that Beltre is nowhere close to returning, and is still in "rehab mode." Apparently a return in the month of May is "murky". http://m.rangers.mlb.com/news/article/226666060/adrian-beltres-calf-injury-progressing-slowly/?tcid=tw_share If you're still looking for an excuse to pick up Gallo...
  11. 1-for-2 with a double, 2 Runs scored, 2 BB, and a HBP. Average up to .232, and as many BBs as Ks (4) in his last 5 games.
  12. This much more eloquently talks about some of the things I was saying yesterday about the minor improvements we're seeing from Joey Gallo so far in 2017, and why I think he could very well earn a permanent spot in the lineup even when Beltre returns: http://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/approaching-the-joey-gallo-threshold/
  13. The Ks are annoying but really take a look at his last 8 games (counting today): 2/5, R 2/5, R, 4 RBI 0/4, BB, R 1/3, 2 BB, R, RBI 1/4, R 2/5 2/4, 2 R 1/5, RBI That's 11-for-35 (.314 average), with 7 Runs and 6 RBI in the past 8 games. Raised his average from .133 to .200 in that stretch.
  14. Gallo's ranked 19th in leagues that count both average and OPS. He's ranked 24th in another league of mine that only uses BA. I understand there are reasons to be skeptical but it seems like the @Turkey Burgers approach of picking him up to see where it's going is prudent in any/all formats. There have been signs of growth/improvement (read my earlier posts) so this isn't *necessarily* a flash in the pan.
  15. Now the #19 ranked player overall in my Yahoo league that counts OPS. Safe to say he needs to be owned and started in all formats until he either 1) cools off or 2) loses playing time. Last 7 days: .318 avg., 1.468 OPS, 7 Runs, 5 HR, 7 RBI, 1 SB
