Is this a "Rate my Draft" disguised as a Vent & Rant thread?   Take it to Bench Coach where you get 2 responses like the rest of us. 😆

Pitchers that I've been relying on across multiple leagues - Caleb Smith, Boyd, Paddack - are now getting destroyed when I'm trying to secure playoff spots and byes.

Yeah...Quantril and Morton really did a number on me today.  That said, Boyd has been lousy for awhile...same for Smith and Paddack...why did you start them?

If I don't start them in average matchups, why even own them? However, it's coming to the point where I may have to cut ties...

surprised you started Cal vs LAD

Weekly league and he is\was a 2 start option with the second start Sun vs SF, though it looks like they may have moved his second start out a day.  Do not have the luxury of sitting guys like that with a month left.  Just my all round bad luck this year wrt pitching.

Well it is nearing Sept and Boyd and Paddack are on the wire in many leagues and Smith has just been lousy for awhile.  I own Smith in one weekly league where I sat him even though it is a 2 start week in favor of Quantril who was also a 2 start week (though that may have changed)...damn if I do and damned if I don't lol.  All 3 of them are near worthless now imo.  You would be better off streaming a spot or two and looking for decent plays against lowly teams with lowly offenses like Detroit.

I’m in fifth place in my 12-team keeper league and actually tied my girlfriend for fourth just the other day for the final money spot. My pitching just dug me into a hole early in the season and I doubt there’s much more for me to do.

might have to re-think my pitching strategy in the off season with this new home run era.

My competitiveness(Being a dick) in these leagues, would not go well in that situation.  A good way for a relationship to not make it through a summer, for sure.  That's a bold move cotton.

 

As for pitching, it's really been the relief pitchers this year in my eyes.  Love the starters I've been able to assemble, Nola/Clevinger/Bumgarner through the draft, Soroka and Gallen off the wire, Pineda via trade (K/BB League he's a god).  That all gets counteracted by Edwin Diaz and Raisel Iglesias.  They almost aren't worth the negative ratios for the saves they bring in.

In my current playoff match-up, they are responsible for nearly a full half run addition to my ERA, all for 3 saves.

The league voted out Saves/Holds to return to just Saves and it's just made the relief pool garbage.  Hate Saves.  Hate Relievers.

I hate Eugenio Suarez.  Earlier in the year he started a hot run by hitting HR after HR against me after being cold. Now he has another 3 straight days of home runs against me.  What the hell.  I always seem to catch the hot streaks of my opponents' players. 😡 Of course Acuna and Goldy reward me with 3ks each today too.

haha--i was actually thinking the same thing last night and laughing about it.

 

Just frustrating when i'm fighting for one of the last two playoff spots--my team is completely ****ting the bed this week and this is just salt on a wound.
