  1. Ryu vs. Nats scares me a bit, worth a shot vs SD but not sure who else is available
  2. I think offer 2 is pretty sweet and offer 3 is also good, I'd take either. Benintendi's OBP is really miles better than Piscotty, even if he K's a lot vs lefties. Buxton even if he is a bench bat for you, at his floor, if he stays terrible, should be a 12-35 guy. I don't think he will be this bad forever. Take either deal for sure. Brinson is droppable until he has a pulse, his k rate is really bad.
  3. Not sure what to do, Luchessi starts tonight against SF
  4. As the outrage grows and we see more articles/radio commentary like this mgmt will have their hand forced. Heads are going to be rolling. "Here are the stats: Since Eugenio Suarez has been out, Reds third basemen were 1 for 25 with three errors entering Sunday. Meanwhile, the team’s No. 1 prospect, Nick Senzel, a third baseman by trade, remains at Triple-A. Senzel started off well for the Louisville Bats. He had two hits in each of the first two games. He struggled a bit for the next four games, but he had five hits in his last three games entering Sunday. The date has passed by which the Reds can call up Senzel and retain control of Senzel for another year. If the Reds were 11-2, there would be no reason to be talking about Senzel. But the Reds entered Sunday 2-11 and last in the National League in runs scored. It sounds like if it were manager Bryan Price’s call, Senzel would be with the Reds. “We’re an organization,” Price said. “We’re not one person. This is not a situation where one person gets to say: This is what happens. This is a decision that’s made by a lot of people for a lot of varying reasons. That’s where I stand on it. I think he could help us. There’s also the argument that the people who see him and know him better than I do need to feel like he’s ready. When that time comes, I would think we’ll see him here. Especially with Geno out.”
  5. If you want your fanbase to revolt with nothing to watch or have hope for, sure. Cries for firing all the mgmt are already loud. There is something to be said for just putting a team with some dignity out there. They won’t wait until July
  6. Gave: Gioloto Got: Gausman I know Gausman is a gas can but Gioloto has seriously looked like a bad A ball pitcher. Maybe he gets better as it warms up but I am definitely not betting on what I have seen. Those 2 QS were bogus, wanted to sneak how bad he has been by someone who hasn't actually watched him pitch and just associates his name with prospect hype
  7. Leaving Gioloto in for the 7th resulted in a walk, a double by Brian Dozier and the loss of his QS when they pulled him. That wasn't predictable at all! He was on my bench anyways edit: May still have a QS
  8. I don;t know if we will have two more bogus "quality" starts this year than Gioloto's so far. I hope they pull the plug on him so I can try and swap him for anything to someone solely on his name value and those 2 QS
  9. And the royals, and the tigers who were very generous to only score 5 runs
  10. I was thinking that too, he has openly talked about getting in his head and it effecting his performance in the past. But he made it sound like there had been progress. And it's not like the sox are expected to be competitive.
  11. I have had bad pitchers but this is another level. As the announcers just said about his pitches, he doesn't even look competitive. I don't understand, he really looks like a bad single A player with no future. This can't all be cold weather
  12. Thank you. There is NOTHING there. Not even a for a moment. He has looked that bad. I don't understand. What happened to the pedigree? The velocity or improvements from the spring all gone
  13. Idk how much longer people can keep saying the cold is whats throwing him off. Maybe bench and hold but he hasn't shown anything that gives me hope. And by that I mean if you allow him to be bad but look for some positives that he might utilize, I haven't seen any of those. I did miss the first inning this game and the first last game. He has just looked extremely hittable with terrible command. Someone else said it, but he hasn't even had a pulse
  14. Can someone plz make a Game of Saves photoshop somehow incorporating Fernando Rodney and dragons
  15. I also agree, there isn't a more obvious stream available. Tyson Ross vs. SF and King Felix vs. Oak are the only two I would put around the same tier. Felix more likely to go 6 but Luchessi more intriguing/likely you end up keeping him for a bit. Ross a dice roll with those K's last time around. Not super confident he goes 6, but he is betting on himself only wanting 1 year deals so he must believe he is healthy. PitchFX on his slider were bad, though, if I remember correctly. I like Luchessi's good floor, chance at a little upside more than those two, and the giants are terrible
  16. Good insight, never thought of that. The padres want to start churning out contributors. If guys like Luchessi and Pirela show signs of promise you can bet the Padres will want to see what they got. I was just going to add that before I saw your post, you are correct, if he does well against the giants in Petco, which isn't unreasonable to think, he will be gone in pretty much every league worth a damn. Padres let him go 6 last time around in Coors, too.
  17. Small samples The good -Unorthodox, deceptive delivery that will take longer for the league to adjust to -Solid command, 4.00 K/BB ratio, 2.30 BB/9, 0.6 HR/9, 9.19 K/9, 1.02 WHIP -2.60 FIP/3.16 xFIP in 3 starts total, two starts in coors, FIP not really greatest indicator in small samples -SwStr% is 13.3%, league average is 9.5% so thats a good sign. The Okay -Averaging 90.3 MPH fastball -HartHit% is at 33.3% which is average to a little high -1.55 GB/FB Ratio which is average. -2.81 BABIP, small sample but below average and would be expected to rise a little -86.7% strand rate, very high, he won't always get that lucky. He has the Giants up next at Petco. Pitchers park and as a giants fan, our offense is DREADFUL. He is a solid stream choice at the least. I think the league will adjust to him midway but there have been some reasons to believe he could be rosterable for more than one start. His deceptive delivery will be harder for hitters to figure out. Every year there are low-mid range guys who end up being solid contributors. Whether its because the league doesn't have the book on him or not, we won't know for awhile. But I'm going to try and ride the wave and see if I can get some decent backend starts while hitters are adjusting and Luchessi has a short term leg up. The other streamers/lotto tickets he has to compete with in my league (12 team h2h) are -Tyler Mahle -Tyson Ross -Zach Wheeler -Skaggs is probably available in some of your leagues but not in myne right now -Speculative Walker Buehler stash if he gets called up soon I need to look deeper into some of those other guys but I feel like Luchessi will have a safer floor with his good command and deception, even if it only lasts for a few weeks. He's a good streamer against SF
  18. Just got in how has he looked, looks like no walks
  19. as someone who has never owned him, I hope Fernando Rodney never retires because of the entertainment value he provides That was a classic Fernando Rodney blown save, top 10/greatest hits for sure
  20. I wasn't able to watch, do you think they would have left him in if not for the HR?
  21. well this is good, no one had intention of picking up Hoover and now the Brewers are going to be even more inclined to figure out the 9th inning
  22. oh god the brewers would bust out Hoover right as I'm wondering if Jeffress is worth a desperation claim
  23. Jeffress feels like a desperation attempt but would not be shocked if Albers blows it. Just don't feel good about Barnes chances of converting saves either.
  24. This is the factor I have in mind. But if Greene falters and loses the role/trade value before the trade deadline, what choice do they have? If they move Jiminez into the role, he has upside/youth/cheap contract, couldn't he become the guy they flip at the deadline instead? He would have to be really good for the value they comp to be worth a trade, but will Jiminez really be a part of the next competitive tigers team if they hold him? I could see it going either way, just a thought. Turning high leverage relievers into trade value is one of the easiest/most efficient ways for rebuilding teams to accumulate talent. Have to assume somethings going to give in both Det and Tampa. Colome/Alvarado are the same exact situation as Greene/Jiminez. Tigers have already shown willingness with Justin Wilson trade. The Yankee's solidified this trend with how quickly they were able to rebuild just by moving two relievers.
