  1. just walked into this thread, no idea what you guys are talking about but it doesn't sound like Frankie Montas lol¬†ūüėā


    Tough lineup tonight against Houston but he has looked decent, a good start tonight and he is going to be listed as a buy on most fantasy sites tomorrow

    Neris looks like the guy to own in the Phillies bullpen for now, but it's still going to be a s--- show.


    And assuming he doesn't blow this.


    Be me, own both Neris and Wilson Ramos


    "Well no matter what happens I get a save or production from ramos!"


    Ramos HBP and in pain :(

  3. For someone who everyone was predicting the demise of, Bumgarner looks like his old self. I've watched every start, am aware that the grand slam isn't accounted for in his ERA. He has been left in too long a few times. This seems like a clear case of prior poor performance due to injury, not decline.


    Not exactly elite, but reliable with almost a K/inning.

  4. Apologies for double post, most pertinent information I could find on the Nats sub 


    "Carter just got assigned to Fresno today... I think they're probably going to have to get someone from Harrisburg for the day game tomorrow"

    The guy is a boss but the usage will be unbearable. 

    The Dodgers probably win last night if he stays another inning or two. I hate Roberts. 


    I mean you have to have picked him up expecting this. Enjoy the ride for the handful of starts that we do get he will probably have some degree of value as the best SP/RP in the game. There's also always the chance that Dodgeritis works out in his favor

  6. Any lineup that’s not the tigers or giants would punish a pitcher for 5 walks. Is there upside potential? Yes. Is this guy reliable at all? I don’t think so. I watched his start yesterday and was thinking he is a guy that box score warriors will want to add, and THEN realize his control issues

    For the most part all rookies struggle when they are fist recalled (Yes I know there are exceptions).  Even Mike Trout blew chunks for a couple of months.


    The difference is a lot of these international prospects are drafted for their raw tools and athleticism that will hopefully allow them to adjust to major league pitching. Eloy and Moncada are strong, athletic and hit the ball hard. But they aren't any guarantee to develop the baseball IQ needed to succeed at the major league level. I also think getting big paydays after coming from extreme poverty takes some of the wind out of these guys sails. Money is a huge motivator, and these guys have seen a lot worse than any of us. Baseball is a joke in comparison and Eloy just got guaranteed big bucks regardless of his performance. Just a personal thought I've always had. Not making any prediction about Eloy, but Moncada's behavior and maturity level (and K rate) have been a red flag for me

    I want nothing to do with Giolito either, but the kind of thinking above doesn't work out in the long run. If you wait until a guy has proven he's good over a "longer sustained period of time" you won't be able to get him free, and there won't be many sellers period.

    You have to be willing to roster at least a few unproven guys if you want to hit on any breakouts.


    He was #1 on my "NEVER AGAIN" list last season, and just like that he's back on my roster. Might sit him for a few starts though

    Didn't see this one coming, but it does show the potential in this guy. I am not a buyer until I see it over a longer sustained period of time. 


    Yeah it's hard for me to trust him after how bad he was last year (worst qualified starter in baseball), I grabbed him though

    That's easier said than done in a money league where all 12 managers are super active and competitive.  When you have an early round pick miss at least half the season, you're giving the other 11 managers a significant edge over you, and the odds of all 11 of these good managers not being able to take advantage of that edge over you is pretty slim.


    Virtually everyone deals with injuries. The managers with the most depth who played the wire the best win.
