  1. Stuff looked pretty good, especially when he was ahead in the count, he was able to sit them down (hence the 8Ks). The Cubs got most of their damage against him in the 4th. He gave up a single to Schwarber, hit Contreras, and then gave up a 3 run bomb to freaking Descalso. Kris Bryant later drove in Hayward (who was walked) on a nice little double, but besides that the Cubs didn’t really square him up in his short outing. The worst part about the start was his inefficient pitch count pretty much throughout. He was taking counts very deep every time and went like 35 pitches through two inning and 55 after three. I knew regardless of the struggles in the 4th, he was looking at short night. Again, stuff looked really good. Just kind of scares me that because of the struggles the 2nd and 3rd time through lineup, and the inefficiency, that they may eventually go back to using him as a RP if their rotation can get to the point where there is a lot of good startings going, like possibly after Nelson returns.
  2. I agree. As an Angles fan, I thought before the season Jim Johnson was weirdly going to end up getting saves this year. I am however still on the Keynan side of things. I think the last two days were more about Key just coming off the DL. I think even more so last night because he did pitch the day before. Coming back from an elbow discomfort, I thought that was the smart too. His command before the injury was a little bit unsettling. But I actually thought Scioscia was on board with him closing it out. He was one of the more consistent guys I’ve seen him use in a while. I think as long as Keynan continues to show decent command he will end up/stay there.
  3. Needed to bring this back because I think it’s going to be the truth. Soto doesn’t run like Ronald so the hype won’t be as crazy, but Juan’s bat is all kinds of special. Checking this guys game on as much as I can right now. Reminds me of Votto. I think he is pushing his way to AA early this summer and will be talked about coming up after the first month next MLB season. I know it might take a decent amount, but I would honestly be checking how much it would take to acquire this guy, if I didn’t already have him in every league. He should be held in high regards right now by any competent owner. I still think most are underrating it because he hasn’t dont it enough or at a hit level yet, but it is coming. If guy stays healthy, he is going to be a fantasy monster.
  4. Really? I put: 7innings, 5 hits, 1 earned, 1 bb, 9ks He went: 6innings, 6 hits, 2 earned, 6ks Yeah, you really got me there.
  5. I look forward to coming back to this thread later tonight. There are a lot of things that might worry me in this world.. A Clayton Kershaw start vs the Dback is/will never be one of them. Tonight prediction: 7innings, 5 hits, 1 earned, 1bb, 9ks (W)
  6. Absolutely. I see the Xander comp for sure. Most likely a little less in the average department, counting stats (specifically power/speed) I can see being very similar. I was just referring to the limited fantasy potential some saw in Lindor coming up, and how I believe Adames in falling into a similar bin. Lindor showed more speed than Adames has, but Lindor had a max of 11 home runs in one season down there. He then of course popped off for 30+ last season in the bigs. I can see Adames growing into some unannounced power. I feel like most people expected Xander to grow into an elite fantasy SS throughout his prospect rankings. Maybe it that was just me. Again though, I think the Xander comp is right on point.
  7. Agreed. Never really ideal. At the time I didn't think it was the worst thing in the world. He walked Sanchez in a 1 run game, to face then face the bottom of lineup (Walker, Andujar, Torres). Bedrosian hasn't given up a run in his last 5 outings and the stuff has looked better. Again, I still don't think this makes a huge swing. But Kenyan also doesn't have a track record in the role by any means. I am an owner/fan of Kenyan for sure. But I am in a league deep enough to speculate on Bedrosian again here too already.
  8. Kenyan blew one against the Yankees up 3-2. It wasn't horrible, he just started off with a walk to Sanchez and then Adujar ripped a double. They then intentionally loaded the bases and Gardner hit a sack fly. He got out of it after that and left the inning tied up at 3-3. I am hoping the Angels walk it off here so it doesn't seem to hurt as much. I still don't think it will move the needle much, I think he has some decent leash right now. But not a great outing either.
  9. I couldn't agree more. I have been thinking the exact thing this season with Adames. He definitely seems to have some prospect fatigue going for him in leagues, there wasn't a ton of interest in him in mine either. I decided to go after him because I watched some videos of his swing and he has a sick stroke. He is a much bigger dude than I imagined too. I can see him growing into his frame (which might eventually kick him to 3rd base) and developing some 20+ home run power for sure. He runs some too and might mix in 12-15 stolen bases. I think he is polished enough both offensively & defensively to be up with the Rays ASAP. I think he is someone that is going to come onto the scene and surprise like Lindor. I am not comparing him to Francisco, I just think he's a young dude still growing into has body and has underrated counting number ability.
  10. Really enjoyed having Kenyan in for 0-7 ball game only to give up a 2 run bomb to Moreland. Obviously not a really long term concern because of one outing, but I surely could have done without that. Thanks Mike
  11. Man... I read through this thread all throughout the day and this is one of the most talked about situations from the moment Knebel went down. Like pitch by pitch breakdowns daily. I’m not trying to be a dick, but honestly just go look.
  12. This has been one of the dumbest things I’ve seen in a while. It has zero to do with what it does to my fantasy team. I just will never understand why they would bring a top 50 prospect in baseball up just to ride the pine. I am totally fine if they believe Siemien and Lowrie should be playing everyday, but then leave Frank down in the minors! This dude needs to continue his development and should be an impact bat for the As long term. The reasoning to bring this guy up for this will never make sense to me. The As currently aren’t going anywhere this season, so why do this to part of your future.
  13. I think that is an interesting guy to throw in the mix. I am a huge Trammell fan for fantasy as well. Any player that can put up a .281with 13 homers and 41 bags at 19 is gold. But I will go out and say that IF Soto goes through this season healthy, even Trammell won't sniff the type of love this guy is deservingly going to get. I know with both it is a small sample so far, and that they have plenty to go. Trammell is currently sporting a career .289 average, while Soto is walking with a hefty .364. Also, while comparing the early K/BB they both have going on, Trammell so far in his career is 183 ks to 737 Abs (25%), while his BB is 96 of 737 (13%). Soto is sporting a 43 ks to 324 Ab's (13%) and 32 BB of 324 Ab's (10%). All in all - we are talking two of my favorite young guys for fantasy. I obviously think Trammell with the wheels can really make a dent when he's up, and I do not think Soto will touch 20 of those. But I do think Soto has a generational type hit tool working right now, almost even like Francisco Meija on steroids (even though in baseball I shouldn't really use that phrase). I can see the power continuing boom, while the batting title type makeup continues. I am surely on board with the idea that if Soto is healthy all season, he will not only at least elevate to at least AA this season, but he will be the #1 bat heading into 2019.
  14. What minor league stats? Lol.. all 2 season the guy had down there. Dude is sick with it. Throws flames and it moves. Also, FYI I’m not calling for the end of Holland by any means, I just thought that comment was funny.
  15. Kind of a confusing move to me. Even if he is “rested” I feel like he hasn’t thrown more than like 50 innings ever. Not sure why they are even messing with him, let’s just see if he can make it through a season first. But it is the Orioles.. and it is a pitcher... so never mind this all makes sense.
