  1. I don't know what is more astonishing, how much owners hate baseball or how comically incompetent their negotiations have been. Manfred and the owners apparently haven't been on the same page this entire time, are transparently leaking everything under the guise of pseudo-proposals, want 16 team playoffs and are about to throw a tantrum over 10 games. How anyone can respect the owners is stupefying.
  2. Evan Drelich :Source says no deal is close yet between MLB and MLBPA beccause the proposal was just sent by MLB. No agreement even in principle at this point. 2:33 PM · Jun 17, 2020

  5. Of all fantasy baseball managers? < .001% Of Rotoworld forum users? The mods could maybe answer that, ballpark 40%?
  6. Come on, sign up we're drafting in 3 weeks.
  7. I just need one more manager for a great fun league.
  8. Surely one of you fine capable fantasy baseball managers would like to join a small money league with quality starts and saves+holds.
  9. Still looking for that special someone.

  11. I think I'm convinced. It's still small sample territory but his wOBA vs his xwOBA is beating expectations by 100 points. And that is with a supremely low babip. Expect a regression here and with his hard hit near 50% it could be painful.
  12. Few things are as cowardly as hitting a batter because your feelings were hurt. Particularly so when there are far more serious repercussions for the hitter than the pitcher. Highly problematic that MLB chooses to avoid injuries at 2nd base and home plate (which are often unpredictable) but essentially advocates for beaning a player as probably the most preventable means of injury.
  13. Credit to Davy Martinez for the inventiveness of creating at least 5 different lineups that keep Vic from seeing more than 3 ABs in a game.
  14. For the sake of argument, I took a look at Bieber (I drafted him) A couple of things jump out. First as to his lefty/righty splits and luck, in his 485 batters faced last season he ran into 257 lefties to 228 righties. Even amongst the lefty heavy MLB only about 38% of hitters are left handers. That's an inordinate amount to face. The rest of the Indians starters faced under a 50/50 ratio of LH/RH hitters. Maybe teams were stacking against a rookie? Cleveland in all its wisdom, is the 25th team by shifts. We can already see a problem. Of course lefty hitters are so much more common than the general population because they hit RH pitchers much better than their RH counterparts are are, metaphorically speaking, evolutionarily selected for it. Looking even closer to the slugging advantage lefties got from Sugar Shane it was basically the difference with Lucas Duda and Eduardo Escobar who combined for for 9 hits with 6 doubles and 3 home runs. I think, especially for a rookie, he was a little unlucky.
