  1. Snit said something similar when Acuña hurt his wrist; but he ended up missing 3-4 days. But of course I do remember couple years ago when I believe he hurt his knee while running towards 1st; everyone thought he was going to miss a significant amount of time after watching the video, but he played the next day. I agree with FoulPole, he needs to have a better offseason program to get him conditioned and strong. I sure hope not another Andruw Jones in the making.
  2. Mookie had 14 appearances in 2014 and 1 in 2018; not great defensively @ 2B overall; but is passable I supposed. Apparently this switch was Mookie's idea, so we might get enough starts before season ends for him to be eligible as 2B in 2021! Something to get excited about!
  3. Here comes why he had diminished velocity..... bad news for those (including me) who needed him in the playoff... Braves placed LHP Max Fried on the 10-day injured list, retroactive to September 6, with a left-side muscle spasm in his lumbar spine.
  4. While Fried wasn't sharp, he has found ways to keep the team in the game as much as he possibly could. If Carmargo would have made that easy double play without trying to be flashy, Fried's final line today would have looked much better.
  5. Slater activated today and is the in lineup against Bumgarner! Never faced Bumgarner before; but he has traditionally hit against lefty well and especially this season with 1.527 OPS.
  6. What about Richard Rodriguez of PIT? Just got his 3rd SV and is only 13% rostered in Yahoo. PIT was 4-6 the last 10 games, if they play 500 baseball the rest of the way, he should get some SV's for a playoff team.
  7. He is in the lineup this afternoon and batting 6th! There is progress! OR It's just a Black Tease................
  8. He will miss this weekends game against the Fish and then evaluate... no IL stint for now.
  9. I've got Severino, Sale, and Thor sharing a 3 story bunk at one point; though I had traded Severino last year towards the end of last season at a bit of a discount price and this year I have got Stanton, Sale and Thor sharing. I am considering social distance them all.......
  10. I don't think it's that black and white when it comes to pitching in Colorado. I came across this article on purple row; this link is to their part 3 How to fix Rockies pitching problems; says that homegrown SP's have a positive ERA+ differences vs. that of the traded SP's. While Marquez is considered a traded SP, he was traded when he was in AA and the idea is that the longer you pitch in Colorado or thin air; the better you are going to be. As a matter of fact, the article stated 20% improvement. Pitch value, 2019 PITCHER WFB/C WSL/C Scot
  11. OMG, I’m so blind sided by this! No way with that delivery he would ever get close to Tommy much less John!
  12. This is a well established Yahoo based H2H keep 10 players league. We are looking for one more manager to get the drafts going. Please DM me with your name and email address if you are interested Jorge Alfaro Andrew Benintendi  Xander Bogaerts  Nick Castellanos Rafael Devers Randal Grichuk Billy Hamilton Mitch Haniger  Matt Olson  Buster Posey Anthony Rizzo  Jonathan Schoop George Springer  Matt Barnes
  13. Traded Aroldis Chapman for AJ Reed after the 2015 season in which Reed had a monster year in ‘15..... Thought I was going to win the trade in a couple of years; turns out that manager was up to something with his crystal ball! BTW, the same guy wants now Thor for Chapman... no no, just no. ~>_<~~~~
  14. 1) Rockies' Joe Black realizing young talented players need more starting jobs than has been's veterans by starting Hampson/Hilliard over Desmond with Hampson playing all over the field and steal 70+ bases. 2) Acuna reach the almost impossible 50/50 in 2020 and win the NL MVP 3) Arenado gets traded before season starts and have a great year in which made all critics who said he can't hit outside of Coors eat crow 4) RadioShack and Waste Management became the official sponsor of Houston Astros 5) Braves realizing their stadiums names of Truist Park and Cool Today Park are

  18. As a pro athlete, Reese’s apparently not realizing that it’s best and easy to find "two great tastes that taste great together". Did he say #notsorry?
  19. Sleeper alert! Battling for the final two spots in the Twins starting rotation; had a nice 2019. K/9 ain't something to brag about but everything else seems to be elite from the surface stats. Year Age Tm Lg W L W-L% ERA G GS GF CG SHO SV IP H R ER HR BB IBB SO HBP BK WP BF
  20. What are your thoughts on Alzolay going forward? He created a few buzzes last year before he was called in June; as he was going 40/3 K/BB in 28 IP and a 1.93 ERA in 5 games. Obviously the first MLB go around did not go well. His biggest problem last year seemed to be his commands and it was a disaster with 6.6 BB/9 in MLB after going with a manageable 4.3 BB/9. But the K potential is there and is competing for a 5th spot in the Cubs rotation. Thoughts?
  21. We have a manager who left the league and the team is in need of some TLC. We have a good system to help bottom feeders to get on their feet as long as their are dedicated. In the same league last year we had to replace a manager and the newcomer took the bottom feeder (worse than this team shown below) to 5th place this past season. It's a H2H 6x6 league (Yahoo) with 26 man roster on MLB and 20 man roster on MiLB; there will be a CRV draft (similar to real life Rule V) and Prospect draft. I plan on providing supplemental picks to help the new owner get on his/her feet quicker.

  23. Melancon does not have a 2019 page... not even a 2018 page! This is now changed with the announcement that he will be the Braves primary closer! Hopefully he is there to stay, especially for the stretch run in both fantasy and real baseball playoff! https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2019/08/braves-to-install-mark-melancon-as-closer.html
  24. Marquez and all of his owners would be the last ones who sing this....
