  1. Flaherty vs the Brewers makes for a nightmare. Even last year, he gave up something like 19 runs in 25 innings against Milwaukee. They're the worst possible opponent for him. And there's this today. https://twitter.com/jgroc/status/1309612699182084099
  2. Pedro Martinez raises some concerns about Mize's mechanics, and his potential to stay healthy throwing like this.
  3. I usually wouldn't think twice about an 11 game sample. But the issue last month, which was almost alarmingly vague, coupled with his prior elbow history, does make it fair to wonder. Even if only a little at this point.
  4. I'm growing a bit concerned about Huira. He's been really bad early on. How bad? At 55.0 percent he has the second lowest contact rate in all of baseball. At 22 percent he has the second highest swinging strike rate in all of baseball. I'm starting to wonder how healthy he is. Remember, he had some vaguely described "arm fatigue" last month. On it's own it may not seem like much. But his early woes and history makes you wonder.

  5. I hoped Familia may be given a shot to close for the Mets but his usage tonight, in the 5th and 6th, kinda dampens that parade....
  6. Interesting read. https://www.nj.com/yankees/2020/07/yankees-jordan-montgomery-may-be-something-special-everything-is-different.html
  7. Should the universal DH materialize, it could change the fantasy value of certain players. Kevin Cron, last year's minor league home run champ, could have an easier path to more consistent AB in Arizona under a universal DH system. https://www.milb.com/news/toolshed-kevin-cron-could-be-powerful-diamondbacks-dh-313435334 Eric Cross of FanTrax opines that Cron has .260/35 upside. What do people here think of him should a season be played?
  8. Bauer's 2018 seemed mostly legit at the time. It seemed like a former high draft pick coming into his own and becoming an ace. If you look at his walk rate, it seemed like he was harnessing his stuff and 2018 is the year he put it all together: BB/9: 2015: 4.04 2016: 3.32 2017: 3.06 2018: 2.93 It was back up to 3.60 going into today's outing. Along with lowering his walk rate, he was also increasing his K/9 rate: 2016: 7.96/9 2017: 10.00/9 2018: 11.34/9 Between lowering his walks and raising his strikeouts, it really did seem like he was coming into his own
  9. I agree, especially being 2nd to last.
  10. I'm not crazy about Medina but Muller's a good prospect. It would help to know how high the draft selection is. With the season Odorizzi has had, I'd see if I could replace Medina with someone a little better. I'd also echo that if you can win this season, then hang onto Odorizzi.
  11. I was offered JD Martinez for Bobby Bradley and Reds prospect Nick Lodolo in my 12 team dynasty league. This is the dilemna: If I was contending for the playoffs this year, I'd have already taken it. But the playoffs definitely aren't in the cards for me this year. While Martinez is having a solid year, his 882 OPS would be his worst mark since 2015. And he turns 32 in a month. One fantasy site paints a more optimistic picture: "His on-paper stats have not been quite as impressive as years prior, but the underlying metrics are still every bit as impressive. His K-rate has droppe
  12. Quote of the day: “Jeez, he’s one of those young kids that I’ve seen in the league that they’re making busts of for the Hall of Fame,” Braves manager Brian Snitker said after Hiura knocked two more doubles in the Brewers’ 5-4 win over the Braves on Wednesday at Miller Park. “My God, that kid can really hit.”
