  1. Kinda sucks. 30 team league we are playing our own division then one other "natural rival" from the other league. Six weeks of regular season then playoffs.
  2. I thought this was going to be the year Andrew Heaney really broke out, he hasn't struggled per se, just always injured never living up to his talent. I think he's right on the edge
  3. As much as I like KK, I think he's on the soft decline. He has a questionable hit tool, especially against lefties and I think he's heading for a platoon (albeit on the strong side) and late defensive replacement playing for a team who does a prime job of mixing and matching. He is a truly wonderful baseball player though and I hope like hell I am wrong, but giving him plenty of days off may lessen the wear on his bod considering just how relentless he plays.
  4. This!!! Those poor owners, won't someone think of the billionaires who agreed to a deal, claimed poverty while never showing the books. Players want to give us 114 games even playing games when it may not be seasonable. Owners say give them 48 games, we'll take our bag of money and bail. Awesome.
  5. Cooper may not get a chance if he was outside of Miami. That said, his track record is one of a very proficient hitter. Yes, he's not a 22 year old prospect, but I believe he could produce 2-3 quality seasons as a bridge to Miami's next contender. Fantasy managers also have to like the fact he has multi position eligibility.
  6. Indeed, it was a great story and underlies what we all think of Gwynn. If you are a baseball fan and you don't revere Tony Gwynn, then you're not a baseball fan.
  7. Tom Seaver and Carlton Fisk, As a White Sox fan I must say it was awesome to get them together on my team, even though Tom was toward the end (yea toward the end for Seaver was still 15 wins and a low 3s era), it was still awesome to root for Pudge and Tom Terrific together.
  8. He should have just said, "lots of moving parts, lets see how things shake out". No need to negotiate via the media. Just sit tight, play your video games, bargain for what you think is right and be done with it. Now he looks like a careless idiot who doesn't realize while he's "not getting his", there are people who now have no money, others will go bankrupt, the banks will eventually foreclose on people and others may even end up homeless, all situations Blake Snell doesn't need to worry with. Yes, it's annoying as **** to watch millionaires and billionaires whine about how rough their life is, but I'll give him the benefit of the doubt that he just wasn't thinking and could have been far more understanding and diplomatic. Snell comes off as an idiot, but it's just one comment and I don't want to judge him by one stupid quote.
  9. Blake Snell comments in the very least were incredibly immature with impeccably bad timing, but he's still only what? 26? 27 and maybe in some of his haphazard comments are the same thoughts enjoyed by players NOT expressing those ideas that we fans otherwise lionize. So I'll keep things in perspective and just hope this plays out and we get baseball back soon. Even a modified Spring Training beginning in mid June has me excited.
  10. Has anyone mentioned Dodgers prospect Zach McKinstry? Low round draft pick, started to blossom last year, raking in Spring this year. Can play nearly every position.Roberts says wouldn't be surprised to see him get to LA this year, tall words considering how deep that team is. Look this kid up, could be a really useful player down the road.
  11. Haha. Never thought I'd see Jack Herman on these threads, at least not yet. This will be an interesting year for him, would love to see the Pirates assign him to A+
  12. Jeter Downs over-rated on this list. No way would I take him over Kopech, Pache, Rogers and about 10-12 other guys.
  13. Maybe not, but if you struggle in one division you are probably not moving up to the next one,no matter what the excuse is. He will not break camp with NYY.
  14. No. He was not very good in AAA last year, the kid needs more time. Good talent, but the Yankees won't rush him. That SP 5 will come down to Louisiaga (sp), King and Cessa in my view.
  15. McMahon is the better bet, Hampson is a punch and judy hitter, some of the weakest hard rate contact in the league.His speed will get him on the field, but you have to take advantage of Coors by putting guys in the lineup who can drive the ball.
