    Brad Keller was solid for me last year as a young cheap arm. 2.47 ERA in 54 IP. I figured who doesnt want an opening day starter in the 19th round? Goodness he really managed to impress today my giving me -19 points with his 40.50 ERA! Anyone else start this week killer?

    I'm staying far far away from any KC starting pitcher.

    Strong 5 1/3 from Giolito

    Giolito was great but that pitch to Albert Pujols with 2 men on that Albert just missed.  Or that would have been 3  more runs.   The old Albert would have crushed that.  But the contract won't die.

    Yes he supposedly is. But Kikuchi (LHP) is throwing tomorrow so we should see him atop the lineup again. We'll see what happens on Saturday vs a RHP.

    Btw, he just went yard

    I don’t think they can sit him right now.

    Lots of teams looking for SP every year. Gausman and Musgrove are the darlings to reach for in 2021. As Clint Eastwood would say "how lucky are you feeling punk?". Worth a gamble for sure but not ever going to turn into a top tier SP. 

    why can’t he turn into a top tier SP?

  5. Bold Prediction

    Some superstar will start the weekend 0-20 or pitcher will get rocked and NOBODY will complain like it's some doomsday event and that player sucks and is the worst player on Earth!

     

    odds are .000000001%

  6. Don't know why he was faded so hard.

    In all of my leagues, he was cheap.  Went for around 15-17 in auction, well below his avg draft price.  Went late at drafts.

    Is this the foolishness of the majority or is this guy just too overrated due to playoffs.

     am not super high on Stroman, but I do believe he is very motivated by the dollar. He essentially opted out last year right as he hit his service time requirement. He almost surely would have opted out had it been a normal offseason. If he pitches well, he will be in line for a huge deal and he definitely knows that.

    I like your optimism, however I do not believe athletes actually "perform better" in search of a bigger contract.  I don't think he can put an extra few miles on his fastball just because he got a contract coming.

  8. 10 reasons to like Marcus Stroman

    1) Full year of rest

    2) Change to league with pitcher batting

    3) Citi Field has sneakily become a huge pitcher's park.  RC was a hitter's park

    4) Has James McCann to pitch to, Lindor at SS, excellent defensive players

    5)Had a generally nice Spring Training

    6)Could learn a thing or 2 from the big D

    7 Could have some real nice Offensive Support

    8 Developed New Split Changeup which could be a wild card.

    9 K rate spiked in brief time in NY last year

    10 Generally logs a lot of innings when healthy.

    I'll admit I generally ragged on Stro Sho over the years, but at a dirt cheap price, I think he's worth the upside gamble.

    I can say, without any hint of irony or facetiousness whatsoever, that absolutely nothing involving fantasy baseball caused me the slightest bit of worry, panic, or even concern in 2020.  

    My mind was elsewhere.  

    Well yeah I mean it’s only baseball. Maybe a little bit of money involved.  But sometimes distractions become more important under duress.

  10. You guys worry too much.  Remember when everyone panicked last year that he was going to miss the season with Covid?

    Anyways Soto reminds me of when I owned Miguel Cabrera some years ago when he was awesome.  I was in H2H league, getting my butt crushed by the opposing team going into the weekend.  Miggy exploded for like 6 Hrs and 20 Rbis on the weekend, giving rise to my personal saying "you are never fully out of it when you have Miggy on your team".

    Well "you are never fully out of it when you got Soto on your team".
