I am an absolute genius when it comes to benching guys that have a great game.  

I benched Domingo Santana the last 3 games.  All he's done is gone 6-16 with 3 homers and 6 RBI in those games.

Somehow this H2H team is 68-53-5 and in 3rd place.  This with drafting Jose Ramirez #3 overall, Nola and Syndergaard as my top 2 SP, and drafting Matt Carpenter about 2 rounds too early.  

I almost dropped Austin Meadows before the season started as well thinking he wouldn't get the playing time with the Rays OF depth.  I may have just deleted the league and gave everyone their money back had I done so.

Wow, it's been a little while since my team has started off a day this bad...  0-18 with nothing...

So if I got this right, you’re venting about having Austin Meadows and hanging onto 3rd place despite some underperformers?

Team BA has dropped about 15 points lately. Fun!

 

pitching is even worse.

What is wrong with offense in a season where the ball is flying out at record pace?  To drop 15 points has to be several days in a row of almost no hits.  Mine had been getting better of late, but is now an epically bad 3-37 so far for the day.

My pitching has finally turned it around after completely revamping my starting pitchers (outside of Snell), now likely winning 4 starts in a row, but offense this season doesn't make much sense.  I think I've had more days of single digit hits and batting averages under .200 this season so far than I have in any season ever, and it's only early June.  It sounds like you're in a similar boat, and you probably have what should be a really good group of hitters too.

Its crazy. Cold streak and with good hitters. Patience I guess.

It is.  My daily venting about it for a while in this thread is why I posted my roster in my signature for a little while on here.  Just to show the fact that I indeed did have a group of good hitters just in case people thought I would just whining.

Maybe someday we'll be able to post happier posts in several player threads on a more daily basis... 😀

In AL only I came into the year pretty happy with my closer situation. Long time running keeper league.

Treinen

Leclerc

Today was a microcosm of how the season has unfolded thus far for the two.

Leclerc in for a non-save situation and gives up a run and a couple hits.

Treinen gives up a couple runs but still grabs the save.

Thanks for that insurance run today Jose... I guess.

NL only league..made a trade for end of contract Bryce Harper giving up Todd Frazier plus some good cheap pitchers..Since the trade

 

Frazier  .274, 6 HR, 20 RBI, 18 R, 1 SB

Harper .238, 6 HR, 31 RBI, 25 R, 2 SB

 

Wasn't expecting that at all, Harper has been a bum.

Not so much venting as in sharing how lucky I have been despite 4 of my first 7 picks severely under performing.   Under performing is putting it nicely for a few of those guys.

Dropped Workman for Barnes. Workman gets a W and Barnes doesn't get the save.

Sox fan here...this is how it's going to be all year in Boston, I wouldn't even bother trying to speculate their closer.
