5 days in a row my guys havent cracked .200. Come on man!

It's like most everybody but a handful of guys we don't own have hung it up already.  It's ridiculous when you can follow up a good hitting day with an absolutely dreadful one.  I've lost track of how many single digit .200 or below hitting days I've had in the second half of this season.  That is something that almost never happened unless you had a completely awful team.  Yeah, maybe you had a day where you got basically no HRs and hardly any counting stats, but not this.  It's the main reason why I sadly can't wait for the season to be over.

 

I have Goldschmidt, J.Ramirez, Suarez, Lindor, J.D. Martinez, Merrifield, a red hot Conforto, T. White, Villar, and a mostly hot A.Rosario and I followed up a 18/52 (.308) day with a 8/49 (.163) day with 3 Runs, 0 HRs, and 2 RBIs.  This is far from an isolated incident too.  There's obviously more to my roster, but you get the idea.

Getting trounced in the 3 week playoff (4 teams, total points scenario).  Just hope to salvage 3rd by some miracle.

 

I had a good run until this year.  The new guy is a ringer and killing it.

Ok, maybe I was a bit off, but everything else I said after the first sentence about people hanging it up still applies unfortunately.

 

I'm still not sure how my team with the players I listed is struggling to get any sort of positive consistency for several weeks now.  I'm sure your team is pretty well off roster wise too, otherwise you wouldn't be frustrated as well.

 

I wish I was able to count down the days until the end of the season because of just wanting to hang on and win, but it's still more just me wanting it to end just so I don't have bother dealing with all of this season's bs anymore.

 

Good luck.  I hope your team still ends up winning if it's in a position to.  It'd just be nice to be able to actually enjoy it all.

Ha! Thanks. Right back at you buddy. Not sure about you,but my situation is like a marathon where me and the other guy have only 400 m to go after 26 miles.  He is handed a cup of gatorade and im shackled with a ball and chain....now theres 300m to go.  After 6 days of absolute garbage (other than my new man crush Blake Snell who never dissapoints) im starting to worry about the guy behind me.

No problem.

 

I've actually been in first place for months now, but my lead did start to dwindle a bit right before the All-Star break when a couple of pitchers and almost all of my closers imploded.  Now my pitching is pretty solid for the most part aside from me giving up on closers (Walker Buehler would be my Blake Snell right now I suppose).  Like you, like I said earlier, the offense is the issue, and it's obviously not due to lack of highly ranked players.  Even tonight, it looks solid on the surface with a .324 average (11/34), but it's about as hollow as it can get (0 Runs, 0 HR's, 3 RBI's).  If it wasn't for Astudillo and Rosario, I would have nothing at all.  The only saving grace is I've managed to put together enough guys that I usually get a couple of steals a day (Rosario with 2 tonight).

The Astros and Indians hitters looking like minor leaguers against Dylan Covey and a whole bunch of Mariners relievers…..It's embarrassing.

 

Some of these hitters aren't even trying anymore. They're already looking ahead to the postseason. Waiver wire hitters are doing better.

Close race for first. Last week I start Voit and Laureano. Get next to nothing, figure their mojo might be gone, bench them this week. Now they're collectively launching homers, stealing bags and driving in runs left and right from my bench. Jerks.
