    He is listed DTD? 


    Does not sound good............. 

    Realmuto is dealing with hip discomfort. Girardi sure sounded like he expects Realmuto to miss time moving forward. Whether that is a few days or a few weeks is unknown.

    "It's a real concern any time anyone gets an MRI," Girardi said. "We want to get an idea of exactly what's going on to give us a better way of treating it and knowing how long to expect they're going to be out. Is it going to be 3 to 5 days, is it going to be 10 days, what's it going to be? That's why we're doing the MRIs."

    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. 

  3. 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!

    They are, they're sharing a bunk on a couple of my teams. 


    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.......

    Two questions. 

    1) Can he keep his era under 4.00? 

    2) Can he be started at home?

    If the answer to either question is no, then he essentially worthless in shallow leagues with limited bench spots. For example, I play in a 10 team league with only three bench spots. I'm not sure I'd draft him in this format. 

    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

    Scott Oberg 1.51 2.07
    German Marquez 0.39 -1.5

    Having a positive value with his FB is a plus; he just needs to learn where to throw his SL to have enough effect to be a positive pitch value.

    I am no expert, but I think at 25 years of age, he will continue to learn how to pitch in thin air and be at least average when it comes to pitching in COL. If he eventually learn how to pitch in COL and be effective; I think even in shallow league, he can be a useful peace.








  6. 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. 





  7. 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 so tough on fans that they decided to rename them to Hank Aaron Field, Powered by Truist and Koolaids Field of Dreams

  10. 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.

    2019 24 MIN AL 2 1 .667 1.59 9 5 4 0 0 1 28.1 27 9 5 1 5 0 23 3 1 0 118 291 2.90 1.129 8.6 0.3 1.6 7.3 4.60


    Some regression on ERA seems to be in order as FIP indicated and an unsustainable low 5.3% HR/FB ratio. But reason why he seems like an interesting sleeper is because as he's got the following strike zone % and swing strike % shows that his 2019 stats may not be a fluke. Both the swing strike and the strike zone % are above average compare to many other MLB pitchers.

    • 43.8% of his pitches were in the strike zone
    • 12.9% of his pitches resulted in a swinging strike


    If he wins a spot in the rotation, I think a sub 4.00 ERA close to 9 K/9 can make him a great pick!

  11. 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. 



  12. 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.
