    Feel like this guy is going to tease all season. Great raw stuff but if anything's off (eg. slider today), he's going to get blown up badly. That said, grabbed him as a lottery ticket & already cut bait. No biggie.

    Narrator: cutting bait was a biggie

  2. 12 run red sox and 0-5 from Renfroe, you horrific asseater!

     

    i don't bitch about injuries often as it's part of the game, but having losers like kevin kiermaier, travis shaw, and hunter renfroe filling in for all-star talent is hurting team morale.

    In danger? 🤣🤣🤣🤣...that time has come and gone my friend

    My man Hawk is taking an L in this thread for his springer news, but this L is relatively minor compared to the Hall of Fame / Mount Rushmore of Rotoworld NBC Sports Edge Ls:

    1. “Lebron James has ruined every franchise he’s ever played for” guy

    2. “deGrom should be traded for McKenzie Gore, but Padres would say no” guy

    3. “vlad is fat and doesn’t have a swing for the major leagues” guys

    Diego Castillo (right groin tightness) to the IL and Fairbanks activated from the IL in a corresponding move.  Anyone care to take an educated guess on who gets Rays saves?

    Fairbanks and Kittredge and Springs

  7. 4. Dealer’s Choice (MIN) – Taylor Rogers (43 pitches) and Tyler Duffey (24 pitches) have pitched in two straight while Hansel Robles threw 27 pitches yesterday. The Twins don’t have Thursday off, either.
     

    from closer monkey. I think that Alex Colome will get the opportunity if there is one tonight.

  8. COVID IL - vaccine side effects.

    There is no minimum stay on Covid IL. He takes the mound v. San Diego this weekend.

    Likely a procedural move, get an extra player for double header and the next couple days.

    I don't personally know anybody who had vaccine side effects for more than 2 days. I had minor side effects for 1 day.

  9. He had one great start but this guy often starts his counts 1-0 then 2-0...I don’t trust him even a little, he is usually inefficient and can’t pitch deep into games because of it. This start is your opportunity to get out. lol.

    I wouldn't call that clutch. He was extremely lucky. 

    It wasn’t pretty but there are so many closers that would have walked some of the batters after the first two on, especially with some of the counts reaching 3 balls. The LD getting caught was fortunate, the fly balls don’t feel like luck. Takes more power to hit a 75 mph pitch out than a 95 mph.

     

    Wheels could def fall off but Valdez is not close to losing his job imo. I think Scott is nastiest arm in pen but the roles seem set.

    First time seeing Valdez pitch and just wow. It's like taping all your fingers together and lobbing it. I've never seen anything like it.

    Good luck to the owners, but this can't last.

    It’s a good change up that he throws very frequently. And he’s safely got the job for now anyways lol. Pretty clutch save today in a 3-2 game after giving up back to back singles to start the 9th.

    Unknown how long it can last but sagnof, and I think there are honestly worse closers right now haha

  12. Just now, BradMaddox said:

    Gravedigger is the add. He is new blood for closer. Montero is FINISHED!!!

    it's not that clear cut, graveman is better but he's gonna also pitch some games in the 6th-8th inning in high leverage situations if the game calls for it. Check his usage.
