  1. It's a smart move. An interception is probably only a yard difference than a punt. Why not fish the flag. It's not like Murray baiting weak roughness calls hasn't worked out . Sometimes the best play isn't what looks good on a stat sheet.
  2. It's not just Yahoo having issues with this. Lorenzen played OF last night and ESPN still hasn't credited his pitching stats from last night.
  3. He is on pace to exceed all of his R/HR/RBI pre-season expectations by all the major projection systems. Maybe you are just expecting too much.
  4. Gotta love dynamic players willing to take a risk to punish lollygagging, makes the game much more exciting. It's just too bad Brault gets charged for his 2B being inattentive.
  5. Hope its nothing related to his previous head issues. He had a rather lengthy DL stint due to vertigo last season.
  6. I’m not too concerned, his 162 avg is currently 105 R, 24 HR, 77 RBI, 20 SB. Not going to overreact to what might just be a little slump.
  7. Just saw this in an SI article. This just can't be reality. Jose's OPS+ the last 2 seasons were 145 and 150. As an owner in Dynasty and one redraft, this just makes me profoundly sad and confused.
  8. BvP history isn’t always the most important part of picking streamers but 0-17 is usually a bad sign.
  9. He’s generally not great against lefties and Hurdle even LOOGY’ed him earlier. Just hit and RBI single though.
  10. He seems to have gotten his timing in sync but I'm not sure he'll ever get his power back. I feel like I am watching the decline of Todd Helton all over again. It's depressing.
  11. Daniel Hudson starts for Toronto, who is their middle man long guy?
  12. He’s K’ed 9 out of 9 batters he faced the last three nights. One away from joining Gagne and Seaver. Maybe he just really likes San Diego.
  13. Do you think the Dodgers would prefer him to start games in the regular season or postseason? They are going to make it to the playoffs. No reason to waste bullets.
  14. Just hit his 4th oppo shot in 5 games but yeah, he’s got no power...
  15. I’m not a big believer in first/second half players but if you look back at 2016 and 2017 he had massively better second halves. 2018 might have been Dozier’s cliff or just injury but I’m not sure since I have never owned him I’ve never payed enough attention to know his injury history.
  16. Do you know what “upside” means? It is the opposite of pessimistic opinions. I will give you he doesn’t run.
  17. In standard +BA, -SB, Average HR and +R/RBI due to being in a small park and theoretically good lineup. The tricky part is not knowing how the R/RBI is split because it is all dependent on how he is utilized in the batting order.
  18. With Jay you just ride the streak and as soon as he has a three strikeout game drop him and don’t look back. I love the guy but you can get those season totals elsewhere. However, if you can strike while the iron’s hot and drop without the foolish hope of him getting back in a groove he’ll serve you well.
  19. I have him in a couple IP cap leagues. Just starting him any time the Rays are not starting Snell, Glasnow or Morton and hoping for a good Win/IP ratio.
  20. They should pinch run Hampson in there and have him steal third.
  21. He might approach the HR total but he won't get near that RBI total at the leadoff spot. I could see 75 or 80.
  22. I may be severely underrating the difficulty CF defense in Cincinnati but if Choo could play an entire season in CF at GABP so can Puig. I'm not a scout or anything but Schebler has never seemed to be any faster or a better fielder than Puig.
  23. Riiiight... The best part of this is going to be after they call Senzel up with Scooter still out another month and put him in a 5 player OF rotation and then decide that they'd rather have Schebler/Kemp than Iglesias in the lineup and play him at 2B.
  24. It was obviously the intention to start preparing Senzel to be the primary heir to 2B in 2019 in case they traded Scoot at the deadline. Their is no reason he couldn't handle the situation, any speedy third baseman can handle 2B. Sure there is some hand skills that could be refined but the difference in his bat vs Iglesias makes it a no brainer. Ultimately I am more rooting for it than expecting it, but for me this becomes a serious PR situation for the Reds front office. Yesterday (before the Scooter injury) Senzel's agent attacked the Reds decision to demote him. While it see
  25. When Senzel went to AAA last year he was started primarily at 2B. Zero errors in 137 chances, he could easily handle it. Seems the obvious move.
