  1. AL single-season HR record by a catcher is 35 (Ivan Rodriguez, 1999). Gary now sits at 34.
  2. Now that Carson seems to be out, I'd start Davis ahead of Ingram and Johnson. Michel could rake , but I tend to avoid Belichick backs if there are other good options.
  3. Thanks! QB- Near toss-up, but I'd go Rivers since he did better in his previous game vs. OAK than Goff did in his previous game vs. SEA. TE- Close. I give a slight edge to Burton.
  4. Was going to start Ekeler (LAC @OAK) , but now I'm thinking Mike Davis (SEA @LAR) as Chris Carson might not play (game-time decision). Thoughts?
  5. Cole Hamels just listed as day-to day? What's that all about? EDIT: ok, Rangers now announcing that he's scratched from his start vs. CWS today due to neck stiffness. Doug Fister will move up a day to start in his stead.
  6. Today's NYY @ WAS game (Sabathia v. Scherzer) postponed to June 18. Yesterday's suspended game (which was to restart at 5:05 ET) postponed as well. The suspended game will be completed on June 18 as well, prior to the start of today's postponed game.
  7. Yankees are currently projected to be around $184 m for 2018 luxury tax purposes ( ) , so they definitely have some flexibility to make some trade deadline moves.
  8. After a string of 8 starts at 3B, Torres has suddenly been playing 2B the last couple of days. With Andujar heating up, I think the Yankees may seriously be considering the Torres 2B/Andujar 3B option.
  9. Can't see the Nats handing closer duties to Ryan Madson anytime soon. He just imploded in the 8th against the Mets. He came on with a 2 -run lead and promptly gave up 4 runs on 5 hits and a walk, in just 2/3rds of an inning. He's now been taken out with 2 men still on.
  10. Torres was back in the lineup today (at 3B). He went 1-for-2 (a double), with 2 BBs. He's now batting .452 over his last 10 games, and his OPS sits at .966 for the young season. Certainly looks as though he's ready for the majors, and now it's just a question of when the Yankees pull the trigger.
  11. Cancelled due to falling ice at Rogers? Sheesh, what next? Locusts...have we had a plague of locusts yet?
  12. Giles: 1 batter, 5 pitches, 1 SV. Sounds good.
  13. He's played 146 games in his MLB career to date. In that time, he's hitting .280 with 45 HRs. He'll definitely be the first catcher on fantasy draft boards next year.
  14. I think that a part of what's happening, is that the Astros may have decided to reduce his usage since June. Devenski was used very heavily last year (108.1 IP). This year the Astros, with the AL West locked up, may just be trying to keep him fresh for the playoffs. As such, he goes out there sporadically, and that may contribute to his not being as sharp as usual. I suspect that the Astros will start to put him in more frequently a few weeks before the playoffs start. IP by month in 2017: April - 16.2 May - 14.1 June - 17.1 July - 11.2 Aug. (to date) - 0.2
  15. Seriously? Gregorius is the #9 ranked SS in my Yahoo league's player rater (between Lindor at #8 and Segura at #10). No way would I drop him for an unproven rookie in a non-keeper.
