  1. He once got injured hustling on a ground ball, is a constant nuisance on the base paths, and plays both offense and defense with an infectious energy. He also has been benched for not hustling and once, obviously failed to hustle in a very visible and costly spot. He is a maturing human being; it's too bad people on the internet expect you to pick one version of him and use it to define him his entire career.
  2. So (fingers crossed) we get some protection back, hopefully today. The Nats have been shutout in 3 of 6 games so far, so they need the help.
  3. In a brilliant deGrom performance today, four of eight marlins hitters put up a line of 1/4 with a R/RBI or better.
  4. I guarantee this didn't happen. This is innings management, which we all knew was going to be a widespread issue in 2021.
  5. 1/4 with a R or RBI is very much not the best outcome. Have you ever kept watching a Mets game after deGrom gets pulled?
  6. In a 5x5, you're willingly giving up anything gained in 4 categories for the potential benefit of 1 category, so while the potential benefit is there, it's small (avoid an 0/4), whereas the potential risk is huge, because you might occasionally give up a monster game. All this to say, I generally think it's a mistake.
  7. You could actually go "Ya bad, A. Baddoo" if you wanted, too.
  8. Jacob deGrom Win Checklist: X - Shutout the opponent X - Drive in an RBI _ - Pitch the whole game Ooooh, sorry, try again in 5-6 days.
  9. Literally the first post: "I think he eventually takes over full-time catching duties at some point this year, but 'when?' is the million dollar question." It's been two games... you guys can't say nobody warned you.
  10. I thought you could and this is how I was going to suggest you check.
  11. Well, Mookie Betts hedging that the vaccine is a personal choice and the league's target of 85% per team implies that there's a not insignificant number of players who don't plan on getting it.
  12. Of course it's their policy; players go on IL when the teams put them there, unless they don't feel like it. It's like their policy, players must accumulate 5 games starting at a position to qualify, unless they don't feel like it. Or Ohtani can't be one player because they don't have time to do it... or they don't feel like it.
  13. It all comes down to some front office types who are too lazy to put in the paperwork until they absolutely have to... hell, they're probably purposefully dragging their feet because they don't own the guy in fantasy.
  14. I'm also trying him and hoping for a resurgence. I'm anticipating innings will be hard to come by this year and some of these older guys will be given a bit more leash, so he could be very valuable if the Cubs are able to unlock something and make him productive again. Mind you, I'm not holding my breath, but he's an easy drop if he gets torched early on.
