  1. I've got Severino, Sale, and Thor sharing a 3 story bunk at one point; though I had traded Severino last year towards the end of last season at a bit of a discount price and this year I have got Stanton, Sale and Thor sharing. I am considering social distance them all.......
  2. I don't think it's that black and white when it comes to pitching in Colorado. I came across this article on purple row; this link is to their part 3 How to fix Rockies pitching problems; says that homegrown SP's have a positive ERA+ differences vs. that of the traded SP's. While Marquez is considered a traded SP, he was traded when he was in AA and the idea is that the longer you pitch in Colorado or thin air; the better you are going to be. As a matter of fact, the article stated 20% improvement. Pitch value, 2019 PITCHER WFB/C WSL/C Scott Oberg 1.51 2.07 German Marquez 0.39 -1.5 Having a positive value with his FB is a plus; he just needs to learn where to throw his SL to have enough effect to be a positive pitch value. I am no expert, but I think at 25 years of age, he will continue to learn how to pitch in thin air and be at least average when it comes to pitching in COL. If he eventually learn how to pitch in COL and be effective; I think even in shallow league, he can be a useful peace.
  3. OMG, I’m so blind sided by this! No way with that delivery he would ever get close to Tommy much less John!

  5. Traded Aroldis Chapman for AJ Reed after the 2015 season in which Reed had a monster year in ‘15..... Thought I was going to win the trade in a couple of years; turns out that manager was up to something with his crystal ball! BTW, the same guy wants now Thor for Chapman... no no, just no. ~>_<~~~~
  6. 1) Rockies' Joe Black realizing young talented players need more starting jobs than has been's veterans by starting Hampson/Hilliard over Desmond with Hampson playing all over the field and steal 70+ bases. 2) Acuna reach the almost impossible 50/50 in 2020 and win the NL MVP 3) Arenado gets traded before season starts and have a great year in which made all critics who said he can't hit outside of Coors eat crow 4) RadioShack and Waste Management became the official sponsor of Houston Astros 5) Braves realizing their stadiums names of Truist Park and Cool Today Park are so tough on fans that they decided to rename them to Hank Aaron Field, Powered by Truist and Koolaids Field of Dreams

  10. As a pro athlete, Reese’s apparently not realizing that it’s best and easy to find "two great tastes that taste great together". Did he say #notsorry?
  11. Sleeper alert! Battling for the final two spots in the Twins starting rotation; had a nice 2019. K/9 ain't something to brag about but everything else seems to be elite from the surface stats. Year Age Tm Lg W L W-L% ERA G GS GF CG SHO SV IP H R ER HR BB IBB SO HBP BK WP BF ERA+ FIP WHIP H9 HR9 BB9 SO9 SO/W Awards 2019 24 MIN AL 2 1 .667 1.59 9 5 4 0 0 1 28.1 27 9 5 1 5 0 23 3 1 0 118 291 2.90 1.129 8.6 0.3 1.6 7.3 4.60 Some regression on ERA seems to be in order as FIP indicated and an unsustainable low 5.3% HR/FB ratio. But reason why he seems like an interesting sleeper is because as he's got the following strike zone % and swing strike % shows that his 2019 stats may not be a fluke. Both the swing strike and the strike zone % are above average compare to many other MLB pitchers. 43.8% of his pitches were in the strike zone 12.9% of his pitches resulted in a swinging strike If he wins a spot in the rotation, I think a sub 4.00 ERA close to 9 K/9 can make him a great pick! Thoughts?
  12. What are your thoughts on Alzolay going forward? He created a few buzzes last year before he was called in June; as he was going 40/3 K/BB in 28 IP and a 1.93 ERA in 5 games. Obviously the first MLB go around did not go well. His biggest problem last year seemed to be his commands and it was a disaster with 6.6 BB/9 in MLB after going with a manageable 4.3 BB/9. But the K potential is there and is competing for a 5th spot in the Cubs rotation. Thoughts?
  13. We have a manager who left the league and the team is in need of some TLC. We have a good system to help bottom feeders to get on their feet as long as their are dedicated. In the same league last year we had to replace a manager and the newcomer took the bottom feeder (worse than this team shown below) to 5th place this past season. It's a H2H 6x6 league (Yahoo) with 26 man roster on MLB and 20 man roster on MiLB; there will be a CRV draft (similar to real life Rule V) and Prospect draft. I plan on providing supplemental picks to help the new owner get on his/her feet quicker. Position Players: José Abreu (CHW-1B)Elvis Andrus (TEX-SS)Josh Bell (PIT-1B)Xander Bogaerts (BOS-SS)Michael Brantley (HOU-OF)Rafael Devers (BOS-3B)Scooter Gennett (CIN-2B)Alex Gordon (KAS-OF)James McCann (DET-C)Eddie Rosario (MIN-OF)Domingo Santana (SEA-OF)Jean Segura (PHI-SS) Starting Pitchers Jake Arrieta (PHI-SP)Chris Bassitt (OAK-SP)Domingo Germán (NYY-SP)Dakota Hudson (STL-SP)Lance Lynn (TEX-SP)Daniel Norris (DET-SP)Marcus Stroman (NYM-SP)Julio Teheran (LAA-SP)Michael Wacha (STL-SP)Trevor Williams (PIT-SP)Relief Pitchers Alex Colomé (CHW-RP) Shawn Kelley (TEX-RP) Jordan Lyles (TEX-RP)
