  1. Ray King would like a LOOGY role please.
  2. How do you use the chromecast since it only lets you broadcast a tab, when I open up the mlb.tv window with the game it takes away the chromecast button on the window? Figured it out- you have to broadcast the whole screen (which sucks because now you can't use your laptop for other stuff.) New problem is the video on my tv is unbearably laggy and choppy. I have 50 download per second, internet is good...
  3. Is it possible to stream the games to your tv from your laptop while still having other tabs open and doing other things? I mean have it stay streaming the games while I change to a new window on my laptop.
  4. Oh FFS here we go. The guy has been throwing batting practice all year and posters who have been touting him dissapear, then he has one good outing and suddenly there are 7 posts from Foul Line. There is still zero reason to own him at this point. If he has another one or two good starts then maybe re evauate, but right now this guy has been nothing short of brutal and isn't relevant in mixed leagues.
  5. After watching him pitch in his last start I have to say I am very excited for his start today.... ...As someone who has multiple Rangers on my team. He's someone I will be targeting waiver hitters against if I am looking for a cheap homer.
  6. Just take him out so I never have to see this guy pitch again. Good lord does he serve up meatballs. ^I doubt they will change that one though. It was one of those "could go either way" calls. But it just feels like they always screw you on them lol. Scorers these days only give out errors if you throw the ball into the stands or something. The most recent for me was Latos last start on the pop up by Soriano ruled a single cost him 3 earned. Thought for sure they would change that and they never did... Anyway I digress. This guy isn't good and is a threat to give up multiple home runs in
  7. Seagers ball was a dink off the glove of Lowrie and of course they rule it a hit instead of an error. Would have made all the runs unearned. I swear official scorers are just out to get me this year. EVERYTHING is a freaking hit.
  8. Spot starting this guy, first inning morales hits a taylor made DP to Donaldson and he hesitates and can't decide whether or not to grab it so it goes through for a single. Now the next two guys have hit singles ad its 2-0 with men on 2nd and 3rd and one out recorded. Not sure why I even bothered using this guy, he isn't very good despite the bizarre hype train on him.
  9. lol this is seriously just not even fair. He just gave up a hit to Altuve, falls behind Wallace 3-0. Gets over a 3-0 fastball. Wallace swings and misses at ball 4. 3-2. Wallace swings and misses at ball 4. Strikeout number 7 in 3 innings. FTB noted how you can get away with his repetoir and strike people out against minor league hitters, well, he's doing that again tonight, it just happens to be in a major league stadium.
  10. You think Straily is more talented than Brett Anderson? And his upside is higher then Parker, a former 9th overall pick who put up a 3.47 ERA his rookie season? Unlike FearTheBeard you give no evidence to back up any of these assertions so its hard to really take any of these as anything more than an arbitrary opinion.
  11. +3 catches for 32 yards. WiPo = 0 carries, 0 catches, 0 yards. reminds me of the argument in 2010 when people were saying that steve slaton was better than arian foster. LOL when given the opportunity, powell has looked better than that scrub howling. This is the same team that refuses to throw to larry fitzgerald, but i guess andre roberts > fitz too right? Fitzgerald has a long sample size of success, he just has putrid QB's throwing to him and double coverage on every possession. That is a horrible analogy. How does Powell get put in the same sentence as a future hall of fame
  12. Powell will get his chance sooner or later. It's clear LSH isn't the guy. Wrong RB, bad play calling, Whiz will be fired soon enough. They may let him stay another year because of all the injuries but if he doesn't wise up soon he'll be gone. And that is why this thread continues because of asinine comments like that. Its clear he is the guy, hence why he is the only RB getting touches in the back field. Instead of just admitting this and moving on, more excuses have to be made. LSH is the guy, he will be the guy until Beanie is back and that is that. Yep, at this point its not r
  13. .....He is not even starting.... But he will see the ball.
  14. He's averaging a pretty pedestrian 1.5 yards per carry page.
  15. I am confused about why one would read a message board when they don't care about the opinions of the other posters. I am also confused as to why I keep clicking on this thread. Glutton for punishment...
  16. It's the worst OL according to - Pro Football Focus - Football Outsiders But I'm sure www.foulline.com is more reliable I don't need a website to understand football. Do you even know how they figure those stats? I'm gunna guess that you don't. Last week before Thursday those sites had Arizona's OLine ranked last in terms of rushing, even though it at that time they weren't ranked last in rush yards per game or rush yards per carry and they had gone up against the hardest schedule to rush against. So don't get snotty with me because I have enough brains and balls to formulate my own
  17. Despite making many bold predictions that have come true in the past on this forum and elsewhere ESPN nor rotworld have either asked for my services. So let's get real. You have been back and fourth on both sides with your sarcasm and criticism in this entire thread. Where do you stand? What is your prediction / analysis? Many rotoworld members have called me an idiot in the past for my crazy claims. But for how often they come true, most eventually realize I don't just make up the things I say. I look at specific stats and actual game footage. The more I got into researching Powell th
  18. It's funny that Donald Brown was referenced as his floor. To me, when I saw RW injury news, I thought of Brown as a reasonable comparison for what Powells CEILING could be if everything were to go right. This was before I remembered of the existence of the Hyphen. That comp was basically purely based on Brown being a RB that has some value purely because of volume and being the one guy who gets carries on his team (again, this was before I remembered about hyphen) and just natrually falls into some fantasy production. Powell might be worth a small bid this week, I am going after Alex Green a
  19. Yeah I completely forgot about the existence of Larod S-H because he hasn't played the last few games. They wouldn't give hyphen a full workload but his presence means he will siphon off half the carries and make the remaining guys worthless.
  20. Haha wow this thread has 200 page potential now. There's no denying that he's worth a pickup now even with a terrible offensive line. I will be bidding this week. Who else do they have?? Alfonso Smith? I don't really have high hopes for him being good but he now has a clear shot at the job so you have to grab him and see what happens.
  21. Hahah and just when you thought this thread was dying... Honestly that is good news though for him having a chance at at least being semi relevant to discuss. That means he wasn't necessarily behind Alfonso Smith and Sherman which is what we thought after last night. If he had not gotten hurt he would have rushed for 2 bills IMO.
  22. My favorite thing about this thread is that it's the worst in the forum, it's so bad I actually like it, and even respect it in a sick way. It's a hideously diseased monstrosity out of the late night creature feature that refuses to die. Shoot it, stab it, set it on fire, freeze it with liquid nitrogen, nuke it from orbit, doesn't matter-- it keeps coming back! Half the time the only reason it gets bumped is from people saying how much it sucks, which just adds to the foulness. The thread began as an act of hope, the belief that some dude who has barely played since high school could become a
  23. Paging Mr FouLLine and Robrain... Appears all but certain that a hot serving of crow is in order.
  24. It looks like the only time this guy even plays is in the no huddle package. Williams went down and Alphonso Smith came in, then some random white guy named Sherman came in. He is literally the 4th string runningback on a team with the worst offensive line and running game in the league. This thread is borderline embarrassing haha
  25. So this thread has gained like a dozen pages since his last game in which he had 4 touches for 6 yards. Can you imagine the arousal level of the cheerleaders if he actually has like a 20-25 yard performance? Im going with 1 page for every 2 yards he gains tonight in the next 24 hours.
