  1. The "reason" was that Denver had only one cornerback in the game due to injury and an ejection. The decision by the Browns to go no huddle with their spread lineup was a good one, and was rewarded with a touchdown.
  2. Haha, touche. I would go back and edit it, but I don't want to deprive others of your punchline. : )
  3. I am also cautiously optimistic that the Puig return is what will trigger Muncy to 2B. Same logic as you lay out. Machado at 3B, Taylor at 2B, Bellinger at 1B. Pederson, Puig, and Kike in the OF (against RHP). His sitting at 9 games at 2B has been torture.
  4. He's actually been better vs. LHP than vs. RHP so far this year (small sample I know, but 1.100+ OPS packs a punch no matter how few ABs). I have to think he's going to start about 6 out of every 7 games at least. vs. LHP LAD - 57 12 19 2 0 6 10 13 2 13 1 0 .333 .457 .684 1.141 vs RHP LAD - 168 32 42 7 0 16 31 39 3 52 1 0 .250 .392 .577 .970
  5. He's at 7, so it will take 3 more.
  6. You may be right, but I don't think that can be proved by tonight's lack of use. He has pitched on two straight days, including 30+ pitches yesterday.
  7. Segura, Haniger, Cruz coming up - looks like Scioscia is giving Parker the "fireman" role today. *Edit* Segura just doubled.
  8. You would think they would let Muncy go a game without homering before they would sit him for a game, just to properly align the principles of reinforcement.
  9. Yes - just thought about it some more, you're right. Bellinger will slide from 1B to CF, Kemp & Puig will man the corners, and 2B will be either Forsythe or Kike. The shame is they do have a slew of LHP coming up, so it will take a couple of weeks most likely for 2B eligibility (in ESPN leagues, anyway).
  10. I believe they will use him at 2B against RHP. They have a LHP tomorrow - if Turner is in will be interesting to see who else is starting.
  11. When Turner gets back on the field, any chance Muncy gets some run at 2B? Could see it against RHP so they could start Joc, Kemp, and Puig in the OF & Bellinger at 1B.
  12. Joe Panik hitting 8th today against a LHP. After a HR in the opener off of Kershaw, he's done nothing against lefties all year (9 for 50). Hanson's path to "rosterable" playing time might be to force a platoon at 2B, and pick up enough spot starts elsewhere against RHP. Could still be a tough road though without just outright supplanting Panik at 2B (and Panik does have an .843 OPS against righties, which is also Hanson's stronger side this year). Alen needs to keep hitting.
  13. Now that Aaron Jones is active, any updated thoughts on Jamaal Williams or Nixon this week in PPR?
  14. Must win game this week - would appreciate the help. 1) QB: Cousins - @DAL (Thurs) or Rivers - vs CLE? 2) RB: (1 pt PPR - start 2 of 3) a ) J Mixon - vs PIT b ) D Lewis - @ BUF c ) Jamaal Williams - vs TB (assuming Ty Montgomery is still out)
  15. Wow, tumbleweeds over here, coming off of a 7 inning, 8K, 1 base runner performance.
  16. Agreed - isn't that a recent Manny Machado season? Granted, w/out SS eligibility (which isn't as valuable as it was a few years ago w/ the recent infusion of talent).
  17. I think he's projected to hit third this year. The projection of 70 RBI looks like you may still believe he'll be leading off again. The switch from first to third should be a net gain for him in counting stats - perhaps a dozen less runs scored but many more RBI to compensate.
  18. Vogt is the guy I like late if I decide not to go C early w/ Lucroy or C in the middle rounds w/ Grandal. Part of this is b/c my league has a deep enough bench to draft two catchers, so I would always bench him against LHP. Obviously, YMMV on that front.
