Not targeting you at all, so don’t be offended.  Just crazy how fast things can change though.  At end of July this guy was viewed as a mega bust now he’s likely finishing top 3 in NL Cy Young and will be a top 10 drafted SP next year.  Just goes to show it’s never too late to salvage a season if you have high end talent.

 

what round we thinking.  3 or 4?  no way 5...right?

So the Cards are really going to NOT PITCH Flaherty Sunday if they have not clinched the Division yet? Put their whole hopes on Adam Wainright? OK

 

They can change this last minute.

given how close it is in one of my points LGs between 1st and 2nd  right now 5 points separates us.I could use this start so I am rooting for it. Brewers cards tied for the division going into sunday game

 3-4.  He is a bonafied ace that I think everyone has noticed.   Add to the fact a lot of people expected this type of performance coming into the season.

Waino at home has been elite, at worst JF throws the WC game

why would you want to settle for the WC spot when if you win Sunday you win the division and avoid it.  IF Flaherty don't pitch sunday I hope Wainwright gets blasted and they lose and have to go to Washington for a 1 game elimination game

I read a report that Waino has been moved to Saturday, with JF to pitch the Sunday game if the division is still up for grabs

Nats and Braves fans will be relieved that they won’t have to face Flaherty in the WC or Game One of the NLDS.

Any chance he wins the Cy Young? That was a second half of the season for the ages.

There’s a chance, but I think it should go to deGrom.

If there is a guy with the best chance to take his first leap into the top 12 SPs next year, this might be my pick. His advanced metrics under the hood all check out, he plays for one of the best franchises when it comes to grooming SPs, and he has an ADP around 70 right now in ESPN leagues. Averaged 10.8 K/9 last year, and should be able to push 180+ Innings & 200+Ks with relative ease. The video below does a great job summarizing his skillset and strengths, I encourage you to take a look.

It's risky, but if you go hitter heavy and snag him as your SP1, you might not be all too disappointed. He's a target for me everywhere, and should be one of the bright young pitchers in the game for years to come. Thoughts on Flaherty? Too risky for an SP1? Nola was going right around 55-70 last year, and I'm seeing a lot of similarities here. Not saying he will jump to a top 5 SP, but I think top 10-15 is feasible. I see value here on draft day. 

 

Sometimes my predictions derail with the best of them, but I am proud of this thread-starting post, boys.

Finished SP4 in my QS league, 196IP, 231 Ks, right on par with my dart throws. Cheers to those of us that held strong after his April/May.

Will be the #1 pitcher in fantasy next year.  Draft as such, and thank me later.
