    Thats the thing with Harper.  There always seems to be an "if".  If this happens, if that happens.  If Murphy is back, if he has more protection.  He can be great.  At some point, you just need to BE great if you have the ability to be so.  Regardless of what else is going on around you.  There always seems to be excuses for him. 

     

    I'm just telling you how it seems to be with him.

    What is going on with this guy?   He looks awful.  BA is down to .225 and he has completely stopped walking.  Brutal.

     

    I'm slightly concerned. This is kind of deja vu with the 2016 season. Started hot out of the gates in April and then went into slump after he got the barry bonds treatment. I really think that once Murphy comes back that Harper and the Nationals are gonna get hot.

    Man that would suck for H2H leagues because fantasy default playoff weeks are in September. I guess if this is the case it will be a very good idea for us owners to sell him high early if he has some great starts. 

     

    That sentiment is really quite overrated. You still need useful guys in the regular season that are gonna put up good stats to get you into the playoffs. Unless you can land something that will actually help you in the playoffs it does not really matter. Plus in late september you are most likely going to be streaming more pitchers because it becomes a crap shoot trying to figure out when managers are planning to rest their starters or bump their start day.

    I am sure this was probably already discussed,  but assuming he will be on some kind of innings limit for this season?  Assuming he is inserted as a starter some time in June, will he be able to stay there all season or will he get moved to bullpen later this year?

     

    The cardinals stated they wanted him to be limited to around 100 innings. So if he comes back right away as a starter that means only 3 months of starts and then to the bullpen in September. But nothing is set in stone.

    Anyone watch? I was updating on my phone and one minute it was 3K, 1BB, 0H through 2 innings then 4 ER in the 3rd and out of the game in a flash

     

    He was cruising the first two innings. The first inning he had good control and was attacking the strike zone. From there on he seemed to get ahead of the hitters and then throw 3-4 consecutive balls. Seemed like he was trying to be a little too cute and trying to get the hitters to chase out of the zone. His first two k's were on foul tips if I'm not mistaken. I wish he just trusted his stuff and threw more strikes.

    I have such a big man crush on Caleb smith since he was a waiver wire gem universally... I ran some numbers on my fantasy teams.

     

    I have Yoan Moncada on 37 out of 56 teams.

    I have Luis Castillo on 35/56 teams.

     

    ... but I have Caleb Smith on a whopping 49 out of 56 of my fantasy teams.

     

     

    Why so many teams? lol

    What’s up with this guy right now? Seems to be a good buy low candidate. 

     

    Just slow start to the year. Last year he started slow due to injuries and then went into beast mode the final two months. Definitely a buy low candidate
