  1. This guy has been money over the last month (OBP leagues, especially). Feel like the numbers can improve as well. He’s batting leadoff for a force of a lineup and getting on base at a 44% clip over the last month. I think there’s more counting stat upside to be tapped into and statcast numbers are backing up the performance. Looking forward to getting 3 games in Coors to start the week, where he’s a .423 career hitter.
  2. Anyone got an optimistic take here? I’ve seen Solak once in person this past week and watched several games over the last few weeks, and he just seems completely lost by my untrained eye. I don’t see anything from the advanced metrics that gives me any conviction to hold either. Curious to see where everyone stands.
  3. 12th steal of the season last night as well. Only been caught once all year. The tools are loud, folks!
  4. 2nd home run of the season, 9th steal tonight. Looking pretty good so far.
  5. Really like what I've been seeing from Frazier lately. Average up over .300 after last night's performance, with an OBP sitting at .421 on the back of a career high walk rate. Strikeout rate is also a few ticks down from his career average, which never hurts. As a bonus, he's pitched in a couple of steals over the last week. All in all, he's absolutely destroying the baseball and Boone is going to have to keep finding ways to keep his bat in the lineup.
  6. 3 HR's in his last 2 games - up to 30 on the year. Let's hope this is the beginning of another hot streak from Moose.
  7. Looks like Chad Green is opening for the Yankees today. Would be a great time for Loaisiga to make his return - anyone know if he will get innings tonight?
  8. Won't show too much in the stat sheet, but another huge game offensively for JD last night. Home run to break the ice early, but his most impressive AB was probably his last. Got down 0-2 with the bases loaded in a tie game, looked completely composed at the plate, and spit on an 0-2 slider for a deep, opposite field sac fly that ended up being a game winner.
  9. This guy should be getting way more buzz in fantasy circles. Statcast numbers off the charts and the playing time is finally starting to sort itself out.
  10. Grisham got the start against the RHP on coincidence because Cain got the breather for that one. Cain doesn't need that many days off. Grisham is likely there to serve notice to some of the struggling lineup guys - if the offense doesn't start clicking soon, I think that playing time will ramp up. I'm holding for now.
  11. The Astros are in a huge pickle with regards to the pitching staff for the next two days. Framber may get 5-6 innings regardless of performance because they're likely going to be in a bullpen game tomorrow. Sneed and Urquidy can't come back for a few days. Something to bear in mind if you're considering Framber tonight.
  12. I don't disagree on the discipline, but Alonso makes contact outside the zone at a clip over 60% and doesn't seem to sacrifice any power when chasing. That doesn't worry me in the slightest. I'm also not sure I can definitively say anyone has more power than Petey.
  13. Thanks a ton for this. I've been looking for something to push me to the other side of the fence on Crawford and this may have done it.
  14. Paid attention to the majority of his start. Umpire was really squeezing him on the edges of the zone. Not great when you're having to come towards the heart of the plate at Coors.
  15. I didn't hear that he'd be back this week. I said we'd be lucky if he was back this week.
  16. If we're lucky, but I'd think a rehab assignment is imminent. He looked good running on the field prior to yesterday's game.
