  1. Last minute decision for me = bench. I'm on this train SUPER late, I just know he's been a perennial bonehead in the past. I know the whole adjustments talk and what he's done in the past 20 IP, but I'll feel alot more comfy with this guy AFTER seeing him dust the braves off so I'm playing it safe here. Besides, if this is a real breakout then we'll get plenty more starts out of this guy. This coming from someone that really needs innings but ratios can't afford to be battered much.
  2. If Minter could actually pitch good I think he could overtake Jackson. From a redraft perspective I'm not really convinced this guy can pitch good. To me it seemed like a foregone conclusion that as long as ATL is in contention they will likely hunt for relief help. My money is on their second half closer being on a different team/free agency.
  3. My supervisor has the Kevin Cron smile, the guy is one the most untrustworthy people I've ever worked with. Anything you say he is liable to spin it and deliver it to someone else out of context. Don't trust Kevin, trust Yordan.
  4. Yeah, rockies are among the worst in the league on the road OR against righties. Rockies lefty bats vs RHPs are like 20th in wRC+. Deploying him confidently here. I'm expecting a gem from this guy today, I can live with the variance in this scenario in the event I'm wrong assuming he not dealing with some phantom injury.
  5. assuming standard 5 x 5...I think this is personal preference, leaning towards the hitters, but TBH, I would be really set on countering that offer with Bogaerts + x pitcher so it's a 3 for 2 deal. X obviously is a lower caliber pitcher than Sale and Snell. I just don't see the pt of having Lindor, Bogaerts, Seager, and Rodgers. Make him take one of those SS's back, that way you aint giving up 2 aces at once anyway. 1B is more of the position you want to fix anyway, you obviously don't even need Lindor fr fr.
  6. Was coming here just to say the same. I tried to convince myself but the brewers are a top 10 lefty hitting team and Eickhoff's splits this year still look bad against lefties. He still needs to show and prove against them.
  7. Yo that freeze frame of his delivery on that article doesn't even look real the way his legs areπŸ˜‚...that just gave me new context on how Kershaw's bad back inhibits him. There's no way in the world you can comfortably get into that kind of a position with a bad back lol. Can't believe I'm being sold on this guy again, but you never know when the breakout can happen so you just gotta be a glutton for fantasy punishment. I mean, inevitably he HAS to breakout one of these years right??? πŸ˜„
  8. I'm holding (in a league that counts walks), but this dude is getting murdered by lefties like never before this year. I just hope he's not playing through some low key nagging injury that he'll have to deal with the whole season...
  9. So basically if he happens to figure out lefties this year then you feel confident he's a certified ace?
  10. Alvarado/Castillo resting excuse don't work this time...
  11. I'm not seeing the incentive, and I'm drawing a blank for recent baseball case precedents. No mention of retiring or health issues that I recall either. I just don't see it. I'm more concerned about when he signs than will he sign. Ain't seen any recent news, and I get this feeling that most people just assuming that he's coming back to any team to close.
  12. it's not possible Kimbrel stays unsigned all year right?
  13. Just looking at the stat lines -- Miller probably ahead of Reyes after that
  14. I been calling this guy "fat Votto" because of the pumped up walk rate This starting to remind me of Adrian Gonzalez 2009 padres season. He had a similar walk rate; he was the only serious threat on the team at the time, pretty much just like Bour is now. Gonzo hit 40 bombs that year, Bour's power is not too far from that (if arguably equal), but his problem is remaining healthy. Anyway, he's slowly rounding into OBP/BB league gold. he'll def be a .900+ OPS guy if this continues, because he doesn't K as much as lot of the big power guys do.
  15. I am...I originally picked him up when he was dropped with a plan of deploying as righty specialist, and using him against lefties only when I didn't have clearly better options. That said, as I look at it, yeah he's past the traditional "prime" age, but still, this guy's OPS has improved every single year in the show. I know it's a small sample size for this year, but now he's taking even more walks, and to me it's like, I don't see why this guy still can't be improving at this pt as hitter. If the walks stick this guy will likely be crazy for where he's getting picked up. Getting traded is just the gravy to me. He was basically on a 40 hr pace last year with more than half of the homers he hit coming at home. If he's traded, it's likely to a better offensive team, and he's pretty much shown he's park proof, so its like worse case scenario his new home is damn near a wash. The likely scenario is that his home park improves in a trade too tho. I think its a great situation to bet on for this cheap, win or lose.
