A full slate of (mostly) day games followed by a half-slate with zero day games should be banned forever.

No day games, how are we supposed to make it to 7pm(est). Go strips

You're confusing my takes of Pivetta and Flaherty. 

 

Flaherty doesn't throw a change-up, often has poor control/command, and absolutely sucked the third time thru last year. He's still learning to be a pitcher. I dont' hate him. but I absolutely hated his draft price and the fact that everyone believed he was a complete product. I don't believe he's a complete pitcher yet. I htink he's a thrower with some good stuff and steps to take. 

 

 

There is a decent amount of pitchers who do great with FB/SL/CB. It really doesn't matter for guys who have 3 pitches that move 3 different ways. Provided they are all good/passable.  Its just a matter of command/control and it would be same issue regardless if that 3rd pitch was a change or not. 

 

If a guy is FB/SL/Cutter. Then yeah, since Cutter is redundant with FB/SL.

Okay but his control/command isn't great (3.52 BB/9 last year) and he got destroyed third time thru last year, which can be indicative of hitters catching up to his stuff because of a lack of diversity. Did you have him as roughly SP20 this year? Because I don't think it's crazy to say I moved him from SP20 to SP29.
