  1. Yeah, Covid seems to have a wide range of symptoms and long-term effects. If Vogt's future is like ERod's first few months after he contracted it, Vogt may miss significant time.
  2. Yeah that's pretty bizarre. And yeah, should change the title of this thread to "Sean Patrick Murphy 2021 Outlook"
  3. Old man Dick Mountain may still have something left in the tank. Reports are that he’s signing with the Rays. Seems like a good landing spot for him. Pitchers park with a team that has a history of rejuvenating SP careers. What say ye? https://twitter.com/byrobertmurray/status/1360416024017960963?s=21
  4. It was such a weird year overall. Paddack underperformed, but so did lots of my players (wah wah, I know), but you have to imagine guys like Paddack can be at least given some benefit of the doubt, similar to how we view Yellich, Altuve, Rizzo, Clevinger, Cole, and scores of other elite picks from last year. I'm not saying "throw away 2020 stats completely because they're useless," but I am saying that we have to give them less weight, considerably, and see if other mental factors played into Paddack, or lots of other players who were worried about tons of other things going on in their
  5. In DFS, FanDuel isn’t letting us change players for CIN/DET since it’s been postponed. Super frustrating. Anyone know how to get them to allow a change, especially since postponement happened after scheduled start of game?
  6. Seems to be no news on when play might resume. Anyone hearing anything?
  7. With Oberg hitting the DL, is Jairo Diaz a decent target as the new closer if Wade Davis sucks or gets injured/Coronavirused?
  8. Figured they’d do it this Tuesday. Glad to hear confirmation and I guess I’ll take a free subscription to the Athletic.
  9. Wondering why the Yankees haven’t done anything with their roster concerning Chapman. Is he going on the IL? If so, why not already have him there? Is he opting out? If so, why not get a replacement player on the roster?
  10. If Meadows has already been out 10 days or so and the quarantine is 14 days, he *might* return before the season starts. Not saying it’s gonna happen, only that it might.
  11. I continue to be hopeful that MLB is gonna have a season and playoffs. They seem to be figuring things out. There were links to work out and they seem to be getting worked out. To be honest, this process is prob necessary for a 2021 season. People kept saying “just pack it up until next year.” But the virus isn’t necessarily gone by then. We might be living in similar conditions next spring to what we have now. So getting some of the groundwork laid now is valuable for baseball and any sport or public gathering. Letting organizations adapt and adjust to new protocols, and getting players an
  12. My sense is that most players planning to opt out have already done so. We’re less than 2 weeks away from the first games being played. A few more may be on the fence and a few may have their minds changed, but my guess is that there won’t be too many more fantasy-relevant names drop out. The big question will be if players can avoid infection when traveling. The travel seems like it may expose lots of players to a much greater degree, so you may see an increase in positive tests in the first two weeks of the season. And if that happens, maybe more players drop out.
  13. Buster Posey has opted out. Let’s review some basic items we’ve discovered so far: 1) Opt-outs have slowed. This was to be expected. Most players who would opt out would do so fairly early. That’s what happened. Some more may still opt out, but there are less opt outs each few days, it seems. 2) No “elite” players have opted out yet. David Price was the most fantasy-relevant player, and he’s not a top 40 player, or probably even a top 100 (haven’t looked at ADP recently, but I think he was outside the top 100). 3) Identifying players who benefit from opt-outs i
