  1. Going Pittsburgh. Monday night. Season on the line. Bengals suck. Last two games have been down to the wire. I don't see how they don't win.
  2. I'm benching. HIs matchups are really bad, so I'm not taking the chance.
  3. Crazy to think that Melancon gets a shot to close? He has by far the most career saves from their bunch. He's been pitching fairly well this season.
  4. I like it. It shows the confidence they have in him. Maybe they'll keep him up this time.
  5. I've had him in my lineup since I've acquired him about a month ago....but I've been thinking of benching this week due to the massive amount of lefties this week. I think 4? Hard to bench after last week though.
  6. No, the reason they have a good farm system is because they spend twice as much as most of the majors. They can get who they want and then trade them away for good prospects. They can give up 2 prospects if they want. They can just sign 3 or 4 big free agents after the season and then trade them away for better prospects.
  7. 2 World Series losses in 2 years and no titles in how many years? With the highest payroll in baseball? I think they may pay whatever it takes. Vasquez is the ultimate team guy. He'll pitch how many or wherever you need him to unlike many of these deva closers.
  8. The Pirates don't need Lux. They have many MI in their system. Smith would have to be in the deal. And probably May. Vazquez has 4 more years remaining on his deal and a very cheap price. The Dodgers are really hungry for a title. It's going to have to take a "Chapman" deal like the Cubs gave a few years back. Is a title worth it LA?
  9. Many pitchers have had high ERAs and then became better pitchers later in their careers. He's been lights out. Thrown into a poor situation today.
  10. I think there is a very good chance that Romo is the closer and Rogers moves back to the fireman. The Twins like him there and he's a lefty. That doesn't mean they won't leave him in for a 2 inning save or even the traditional save from time to time. They know he's their best bullpen arm and like to use him accordingly. I never got the feeling that they wanted him as the closer all season. The rest of the pen was terrible. Everyone knew they would be adding at least one arm before the trade deadline. Romo can get the job done and will come a lot cheaper than some of the other names mentioned.
  11. Kela will be moved. The team suspended him this week after being out since April. He did something to one of the managers. The local news stations were talking about it yesterday. Crick should be the guy. If Vasquez goes, they may blow the entire team up. (not that I'm saying that wouldn't be a bad thing)
  12. Nobody is trading for Melancon and his salary unless they are getting something very valuable as well.
  13. Actually...he's went 3 runs or less his past 5 starts. He's been very unlucky with run support. He's still getting Ks and as a Pittsburgh homer, they will fall out of contention and then go on a great winning streak in late August and early September, just in time for the fantasy playoffs. The management will see some small progress in the late season and see no need to change anything going into next year. Wash and repeat.
  14. He's a solid hold in dynasty. The power and talent is real, but he's going to struggle this year. Especially in leagues where Ks count against you. If you're in a straight HR league in which that is all you need him for, he'll be fine this year.
  15. A closer with his experience, 12 out of 15 saves converted and a 2.93 ERA has some leash. He also has a manager that is pretty loyal to his players. That, and there isn't a real threat behind him. He would have to have 2 more terrible outings like the last to lose his spot.
