I'd be more excited if he wasn't called up on a Tuesday and have to see him blow up on my bench in weekly leagues. Don't get me wrong, I'm still happy to see him do well, it's just a reminder of the crap you sometimes have to deal with in weekly leagues.

Bingo. How inconsiderate of them. On the plus side... BOOOMM!!

Acuna has LF in Yahoo now. I'm thrilled he got the needed starts so soon and didn't have to wait months for another OF slot.

It's about as helpful as anything else posted in here. Unless you're in the shallowest of leagues he's an every day /week starter. In no way am I trying to curb free discussion, but there isn't really anything to say about him that's really important. He was drafted as a top 100 player while a prospect not starting in the majors, now he's in the majors. He will get hot, he will slump, he will get hot again. Until he's injured, there isn't too much discuss. Lf elliigiblilty is probably as pertinent as anything else. Outside of that it's just going to be a circle jerk for the rest of the season, I'm not even against it.

Some people don't know or pay attention when player get an added position, especially if it's someone they don't own. No need to be a pickle about it, 

 

Aside from that, seemed like the first reshuffling of the ATL lineup had some good results, not to say I agreed with where everyone ended up hitting though. It will be interesting to see the lineup each day going ahead. Some were concerned having Inciarte who is red hot in the 9 spot, but he put up nice numbers yesterday too. Then Bautista is on his way, have to see what kind of tweaks they make to the lineup once he's arrived. 

 

Nice to see Acuna pick up a SB and small sample size so far but he's contributed across the board. He's going to see some better SP @NYm than what he faced so far, but I'm sure he'll hold his own. It will be nice to see some metrics on this guy once more of a data pool is available for some fun breakdowns.

That was one wicked looking 81MPH slider right down the middle for Acuna. Poor jason vargas. He had no chance.

“Ronnie...Try not to hit balls 400+ feet over the fence. We really need you to drive the gaps a little more for singles and doubles” 

 

Brian Snitker 

That sounds a little too much like something Snitker would actually say.

You should sell high. High and in fastballs and breaking balls in the dirt are imminent.
