5/23 - GAME DAY THREAD

Recommended Posts

Boyd screwed by his defense on a taylor-made double play ball in the 4th. Cost him 9 extra pitches to get out of the inning. He looked good again but had to work through having men on base a few different times. He walked the leadoff batter in the 7th after a full count and got pulled at just over 100 pitches.

Picked him up the third week of the season for 3 FAAB

Same here I got lucky someone dropped him about a month ago he’s been on a tear ever since he’s been on my team. Pick up of the year he’s figured it out .

Nola continues to lack confidence and command. It's truly a lost year.

If I was a betting man I definitely would have taken the over in Cubs-Phillies with the wind blowing out at Wrigley. Just went over (9.5) in the 4th inning.

Had the Nola game on screen. He was fantastic thru 3 so I closed it.
15 minutes later... WTF?

Inability to hit spots, just lacks consistent command.

That could have been WAY worse for Nola. I'm just still adjusting to seeing him so erratic.

Anyone know why Blackmon was pulled in the 4th?  All I heard was "undisclosed injury"

Issue with right calf, per Bud Black.

Nola is simply not a tier 1 or even 2 starter this year. Deal with it.

Wow DET infield is terrible.

Game should've been over, but they really don't want Boyd to pick up the W.  Error gets the first man on, who scores.  Then the second basemen boots a double play ball like 10 feet from the bag. 

 

Garrett Cooper GS... OFC

Shane Greene and Ronny Rodriguez blow the Boyd win.

Yes Greene Is charged with 0 runs. 2 hits and 2 BB. The pitch that was hit for a GS was impossible.

Nola lost his mojo between the 3rd and 4th innings. Total 180. FB all over the place now.

Facing CHC's best hitters now, can he make it through 5?

 

He's scared to throw a pitch now. Pick off attemptS at 1b with 5 run lead and Bote there, really?

I drafted Josh Bell in the last round of my draft for a little bit of upside. Turned out to be the best pick of the draft.

Don't ya just love stuff like that.

 

In my draft, my computer froze up just as I was trying to move Scooter Gennett ahead of Gary Sanchez in my draft queue. 😁

Was really torn on Nola (which is disappointing in and of itself).  Cubs are a strong offense, but less so at home.  That said, they hit righties well and Nola has been bad on the road.  This is all still relatively small sample size, so I started.  I just don't know if I'm at the point where I can sit Nola.  I'm hoping at worst, he'll allow 4 over 5 or something like that.  And, at best, can give me a really solid start.  

 

Well, he recorded 1 more out and allowed 1 fewer run than my worst case scenario, so...eh.

Albies may be heating back up.....

 

I imagine realizing that he had the worst agent in baseball negotiate the most important contract of his life probably threw him into a funk for at least a few weeks.

Hoping for a save opp for Neris. Also hoping Luke Jackson is stuck in traffic somewhere.
