  1. He's going nowhere. With France gone, the only one that can knock him off of 2B is profar and we all know thats not going to happen.
  2. Pagan has been bad. There have been a few bad outings, but he has let up at least 1 ER in 5 of 11 appearances this year, with 3 of those being multi-run innings. He has not been good. 5.7 BB/9 and 8.2 K/9, not great at all. Its going to be a mess. Mostly because half of their bullpen is actually SPs. Quantrill, Strahm, Patino, Morejon, are all aiming for that 5th SP spot. Along with the Padres bullpen ERA being in the clouds, its going to be constantly changing based on who is hot and matchups, and it is going to be frustrating.
  3. babying him due to his gastrointestinal issues.. Not fully resolved. He has terrible splits vs lefties, so I bet they give him breaks then, however the dodgers booted Kershaw and tonight is a RHP.
  4. Got Musgrove/Morton/Hill/Paddack/Heaney going tonight, wish me luck.
  5. Picked Cron over Votto as my 2nd 1B, and benched him. Decided to watch my first SP this year (Morton). Such a quick reminder of why I hate (and love) fbb
  6. But what do you do with the athletes, isolate them? Keep them from their family? This isn't about protecting the healthy, it's about the vulnerable. It's irresponsible to cite the flu numbers now. Do it when this is all over. Italy is still jumping up, US is just getting started.
  7. For those of us who drafted earlier, its really just a wait and see. Hopefully its not a long thing, for his sake. I doubt the Orioles will actually put him on the DL prior to the season starting, which sucks for pickups.
  8. The hysteria is a little much, but it doesn't lack concern. It's about 10-20 times more deadly than the flu, so if it gets that exposure you will see those massive numbers and more. It just has not spread that much. Wash your hands, and be health conscious like you would during any flu season and you will be fine. It's not like the coronavirus is "catchier" than the flu. If you have older family members, it is certainly something to be mindful of...I wouldn't be sending them to China or Korea any time soon. I do think as the weather warms up, it will die out, so probably won't affect baseball.
  9. Interesting. I thought I saw something that his walk rate in the stretch was half his windup walk rate.
  10. If you knew he was starting the year with the club, where would you take him? Steamer has him at .253/.320/.420 with a 94 wRC+. I'd be willing to be t the over on those, but its still no higher than a 150 pick.
  11. Grisham probably has the inside track on the CF job. They traded a prized prospect (Urias) for him, he has excellent OBP skills which the team lacks, and doesn't have the K issues that have been plaguing the team. I expect the OF to be Pham, Grisham, Myers, with Cordero as the 4th OF and Naylor as the 5th.
  12. Can't catch a break. Hopefully its something minor. For him and the Indians...and Bumgarner is not ready to be my SP2. https://twitter.com/hoynsie/status/1230520607080513538?s=20
  13. Sorry, the second part is me trying to say that Sanchez's average will improve, not that it'll be better than garvers.
  14. I think Garver and Sanchez are closer than that. Sanchez may have a bit more consistent power, but he's constantly getting hurt. Garver has all around skills with a much higher OBP (.316 vs .365 last year). Sanchez may be better (and will probably have a higher avg and OBP), but with the ADP difference, Garver is the better buy. I see people reaching for Sanchez, and outside of Realmuto, its better to wait for Tier 2.
  15. And pass up SP? I wouldn't go again until Pick 19, which is looking like Darvish, Glasnow, Woodruff territory. Thats sketchy knowing Paddack won't sniff 200IP and Ohtani will be lucky to cross 120IP. I understand going best player availabe, but Hiura with the K rate has some warts too.
