Day 3 in a row sitting.  Something is up.

For sure.  He was not 100% when he got activated with the oblique issue.  Considering how much he's struggled since he came back, gotta think it is still something bothering him.

3 SBs yesterday

 

Annoying player to own.

 

But on pace for a potential  .270 / 80 R / 15 HR / 70 RBI / 35 SB line when no one's stealing even with the AVG down a bit..

in my opinion more like .285/90R /20 HR/90 RBI /40 SB line ... don't forget he missed a bunch of time in the first half of the season so his numbers at the break are lower than they should be if he didn't have some time on the shelf.

He'd need to go on an insane heater to approach this line 

 

The stretch he's in is easily his best this season..

Forgot he did hit the shelf with an oblique yeah. Impressive the pace he's on considering, showing he's still at his peak. The steals are really valuable and has about as many homers as last two years combined- hit some bombs out to centre in PNC which shows his power is legit.

Doesn't get too much love but Marte's been sneaky valuable, hasn't he?

 

25 steals to go along with 13 HRs and an .800 OPS?

 

Most 20+ steal guys carry OPSes in the .600s.

Doing his best to prove me right haha. Marte on a huge tear right now. Opening his game log of last month is so juicy

Those PEDs sure helped. He’s having a huge year... could go .290 25hr/40sb this season if he keeps it up. He would need 9 more homers and 15 steals. 

 

Jk about the PEDs... kind of.

I drafted this guy everywhere because I knew there would be value where he was being drafted.  I did not expect him to significantly outperform even his Yahoo preseason ranking, which is what he is doing right now.  Feels good.

Lol yet at the top of this page people were fed up with Marte.

 

Terrible June.

Awesome July.

Marte took that fire and lit himself up with it.

 

now the Bucs are legitimately a part of the WC race, 11 wins in a row... thanks to Marte's hot streak.

 

Baseball is a fun sport :)

Dammit...HBP in hand in 1st. Apparently took his base & tried to steal but was thrown out. Then did not come out to play CF in the bottom of 1st, replaced by Adam Frazier. 

 

Saying prayers now. :blink:

Well don't like to hear that... but you would think he's okay if they allowed him to stay in the game and even try to steal.  Right??

Is it ok to say I’m hoping he has to hit DL? First place owner in the hometown roto league is kicking our faces in...

Is it ok to say I hope your whole team hits the DL?

Starling Marte will be reexamined when the Pirates return to Pittsburgh on Thursday.

Advice: Marte departed Wednesday afternoon's series finale against the Indians after taking a Trevor Bauer fastball off his left hand in the top of the first inning. He's considered day-to-day for now, but the Bucs apparently want to run some tests and have him checked out by their medical team.
