  1. This one was roto, just happens to have weekly lineup settings, so 2 starts weeks are certainly beneficial even if one matchup is tough. I had enough confidence in Gallen that he'd survive the first matchup and be somewhat rewarded by the second. I wasn't as concerned about ratios because of my gaps as i just wanted counting stats. Obviously though, i wouldn't want to be destroyed - we were fortunate that it wasn't worse. Really wanted that win.
  2. In weekly lineup changes, it would have been nice to make the move after this week because I wouldn't have started Gallen for a single game @ COL. Figured I'd bite the bullet on the @Colorado start in order to get 2 shots at wins, extra Ks, and potentially decent ratios. If there's only 6 games next week, then he gets only 1 game next week as well. Bummer.
  3. What gives, looks like his second start was pushed into next week. Given how much he's been jerked around, it may not be a given that he gets 2 starts next week either.
  4. I watched the streaming broadcast on mlb yesterday against the dodgers and they were saying that he has transformed in his aggressiveness. Before, he would be great at getting ahead and then he'd start nibbling, trying to get guys to chase to much. Now he just goes after them and challenges them which sets up his other stuff better. You could see it play out as the announcers were describing. The results speak for themselves the last few games. He's become almost matchup proof. Too bad CMart blew the win.
  5. Not sure how juicy the 2 start week would have been with @BOS ...
  6. Love Maeda's reaction after he served one up ... Lol
  7. Manager Rick Renteria says that Cordell will be given full time ABs. Anything to see here? Some speed, some power, not great plate discipline.
  8. What are the chances they get the Mets / Twins game in? Yahoo shows 100% chance of precipitation ... showers. Playable?
  9. 8 Yahoo leagues (1 - 20 / 7 - 50) Voit 7 - always seemed to have another draft option and figured I'd have Voit available late. Bauer 6 - Wanted one of Cole / Nola / Bauer around the 3rd / 4th round. Bieber 4 / Pivetta 3 - upside arms ... would try to get Flaherty after Bauer, but often had to fill a bat. Paddack 5 - Most of my drafts were well before it was announced that he made the OD roster. Just liked what i saw in ST. Devers 5 - Takes a step forward this year. Like his spot in the order. Good spring. Puig / Dahl / Eloy - 4 Always tried to get one or t
  10. I was actually glad CBS had such low projections. It kept the hype down as we rolled through spring training and our keeper / auction draft process. I picked him up off waivers last year ($6) and was very high on him going into the offseason though the addition of Cano slowed the roll. We keep 15 and took a chance letting him go back to the draft only to get him back cheaper with an extra year. Love his bat control and developing power. Sneaky sleeper / breakout potential if he can take advantage of early playing time to force their hand.
  11. I know he hit 22 last year, but I think CBS has him at 8hr and 15 steals. Something similar with Yahoo. I think he way outperforms the power numbers.
  12. What about want is healthy for Greg Allen?
  13. I don't think there's been a huge surge in him because most projections still show single digits hr and modest steals. I just got him in my auction at $4, which I thought was a bargain. Undrafted waiver players go for $6, so he's less that replacement cost. I have seen him taken at the very end of Yahoo drafts.
  14. I watched the game today. He had the Philly hitters off balance all day. Had to pitch out of a couple of jams created by his D. Sinking fastball and wicked slider ...
  15. I'd say Moustakas would be close to Shaw. Estimates are for nearly the same numbers except Shaw has 3 or 4 more bags. Just go to your display all 2b projections and look at where Shaw sits relative to others.
