Remember when people were worried about a finger and considering taking Bum, Noah, Sale over him?

 

Good times good times

 

2 start week next week

 

let the good times roll

Those times were awesome. Those concerns as probably the reason I was able to snag this monster in the late second.

Damn it would have been awesome if he got 20 k's on the same day that Babe Gennett hit 4 hrs. Max is such a beast and I thank him and Nola for neutralizing that Padres pitcher Dinelson today.

For real,  althought i didnt have Nola i did stream Chase anderson...and with Max DEFENITELY helped with that terrible Dinelson start.  Which by the way was very stupid of me.  So many smart guys on the board said Dinelson would get rocke, sure enough.

Love this guy's intensity. Easily the second best pitcher in baseball. 

Was toying with the idea of offering him for Sale about a month ago and, boy, am I glad I didn't do that.

Hey folks, I just bought my first ever share of Mad Max in my 10-team dynasty league.  It's great to have one of the safest aces around, if there is such a thing.

 

The one concern I had before dealing for him was the possibility that they start backing off of his workload due to the Nats being so far ahead in the division.  Anyone see this as a strong possibility?  They let him throw 228 last year, but that was with the Mets "only" 8 games back.  By the time August rolls around and the Mets bursting into flames, I could see the Nats being 15 or more games up.  At that point, what's the rationale to keep having your workhorse going 6, 7 innings every fifth day when you can save him for the playoffs?  I haven't heard this talked about anywhere.

 

Don't get me wrong, I'd happily take whatever he gives me ROS over almost any other arm out there, but I have to think they might ease off him a bit late in the season.

With the way they've already been handling things in June? Yeah, strong possibility. I hope you got good value on your trade if so. I drafted him in the 2nd round, I'll be happy with whatever I get out of him, so I personally don't really care what they do. Even if the foot comes off the gas a bit for the Nats in H2H playoffs there's only 1 starter I'd rather have.

The price was Arrieta and Conforto, so the value depends mostly on what Conforto becomes.  I don't think you can get a top-tier starter for less than that the way pitching has been this year.

Yeah, good trade. Mad Max is fun to own.

Wow, what a show tonight.  He had to really gut out the last AB against Cespedes, but he finally got to 10K for his fifth straight double-digit strikeout game.  A season high pitch count, something like 117 pitches...  I guess the Nats' bullpen futility is good for Max's fantasy owners -- I wouldn't want to waste his effort by giving the ball to those jamokes, either.
