    He was inefficient because he wasn’t, or at least hasn’t been, healthy. The two things are pretty inextricably linked. 

     

    Sure about that? You are just speculating. He is just coming off the DL and showed some rust. Don't make the claim he is injured unless you have some solid evidence of that. As the post said above his velocity was just fine.

    Mets staff should honestly be investigated for malpractice, all jokes aside.  Kid threw like 50 pitches in the first.  Should’ve never been activated from the DL, regardless of what degrom himself said about his health.  Sad to see.

     

    Who said it was anything to do with his health? He just was rusty and not efficient.

    Not at all.  There isn't really anyone to take his spot.  Montgomery is out at least 2 months.  No need to overreact to this bad start.

     

     

    This isn't actually true.

     

    Is this your un-biased opinion as a Yankee fan? :lol: He lacks any kind of control, so that does not really make him a long-term option in the rotation.

    Hilarious. I’m sorry I missed it. I can understand why he was less than thrilled after the AB though. Those first two inside curves by David Hernandez were garbage.

     

    He's probably frustrated in general by his lack luster season.

    No. I missed it, what did he do?  I saw Kike spike his helmet after the terrible called third strike in the 7th.

     

    Taylor screamed F--k so loud that it was heard on tv and threw his bat against the bat rack and it came back and hit him in the face.

    Who knows how much he'd have made in football. IIRC he was a TE or WR at ND and pretty good, 

     

    Probably made more in baseballl than he would have in the NFL - he thought he would be better in MLB...

     

    Generally most baseball players make more and have guaranteed contracts. Baseball players also don't play a physically demanding sport that is the equivalent of going through a car crash every game, although it could be said watching the Shark's starts is like watching a car crash.

    Its new; he was batting cleanup all year.

     

    the reason for the change is they finally moved Kipnis out of the 2-hole because Kipnis sucks.  It’s actually a pretty natural spot for Brantley’s profile IMO

     

    Giddy up. means more AB's as well. If healthy he can perform like Daniel Murphy with outfield eligibility (18 homers and 90 something rbi's with a high average and obp).

    Sounds crazy, but I wouldn't trade him for Darvish in any of the 9 redraft leagues I own him. He's too valuable. Or, maybe I'm too stupid. Idk. 

     

    Same here. And the fact that he is RP in my league adds even more value. I know he's only gonna pitch up until July/August, but he is gonna help me push to make the playoffs. People worry about having certain guys for the playoff run, but you have to make the playoffs first.

    Haha imagine if he's magically healed after the Yankee series and pitches the first game after it. 

     

     

     

     

    Cora stated after the game last night that he expects Price to rejoin the team after the New York series.... Put on your tin foil hats my friends, we got a conspiracy theory going on here.... Fake moon landings, Roswell and ufos,  and David Price having a fake injury just to avoid an opponent that owns him...
