  1. There is so much we don't know given this season. Another is some players perform better without the fans, others need the fans to feed off of.
  2. San Diego is ridiculous with how constantly slow they are releasing their line-up. Seems like every day they wait and wait and release their line up after East Coast games start. Every other game has released both their line-ups, Seattle has released theirs for crying out loud.
  3. Seems like Vince Velasquez was bumped from his Game #2 start today, at least according to Yahoo.
  4. Or owners might have narrowly missed out on qualifying for the playoffs because of that missed start this week. All about perspective.
  5. I wonder if Alex Reyes gets a look at the STL closer gig - in his last seven innings he has a 9:1 K/BB ratio and a 0.71 WHIP giving up no runs.
  6. Is he a better 2B than Kike or Taylor or Muncy for that matter? And it seems this could be more than a one-off but will split time at 2B the rest of season so it's just to switch things up for Mookie for a day
  7. Berti might be a sneaky pick-up ROS with Villar gone.
  8. Nola is having arguably the best offensive season of all catchers this year. SD doesn't need him to be their "future" they have top catching prospect in the wings for that. He's acquired for the "now" while also having few catching miles on his body given he only transitioned there a few years ago so he could probably still catch for 4-5 more years as a bench bat. Do you trade Trammel for a better chance to win this year - ask me in a couple of months.
  9. Next CBA will fix things but elite prospects are simply way too cost effective valuable to deal away for big money "win now" vets anymore (probably always was, it was just figured out). Too many years of cheap control on 21 yr old superstars to trade away 18-19 yr old top prospects. You get quantity and hope 1-2 out of those six players "hit" and become MLB regulars. You have to draft stars and FA sign superstars.
  10. Have to imagine Plesac will be dealt today given that return for Clev - they're desperate to move them. Quantril is a 3-4 starter, one of those better IRL pitchers than fantasy guys so the FBB community will not be too excited about him ever. Naylor getting a ROS full time gig is interesting, hoping for a NYM Smith happening?
  11. Given Ty France was traded away, and Hedges and Castro are seemingly being kept I worry Nola could be looking at being part of the Moreland timeshare. But they paid a hefty price for him, so it means they like him and you maximize his bat from catcher.
  12. Nah, just rumors still. Flipping Castro to Seattle probably as it wouldn't make sense to overhaul catching tandem completely "mid-season" like this. Keep Hedges around with Nola would be the idea I think.
  13. Does Nola play every day in San Diego? If not it's a downgrade. As an owner I'd rather him just stay in Seattle doing what he's doing. He'll bat in the bottom third in San Diego as well.
  14. ^Assuming not Gore, Patino being the SP centerpiece?
