9/16 - GAME DAY THREAD


Recommended Posts

Anyone else buy into the multiple fantasy sites touting John Means this week? Already a 2 run HR in first inning. Conclusion, fantasy analysts are just as dumb as the rest of us, fools who cite advanced metrics as reliable predictive stats, and the only difference is that they get paid to do it. Fools.

Baseball is a sport. Sports are unpredictable, especially team sports. At best, you can reduce randomness.

There is no Nostradamus of baseball, nor Nostradamus of Fantasy. Luck is a part of the final results no matter what some people wanna say to comfort themselves. Fantasy analysts are like fortune-teller. They comfort or scare you about things you were already thinking about. End of story.

Please ReyLo. Don't get bombed in Minnesota. Just eat up 6 innings with 5 k's and 3 or 4 runs for the love of God.

You're very optimistic especially when you see what the Twins did on Bieber yesterday 😂 And Bieber is much closer to an ace than ReyLo will ever been.

Paid fortune tellers. Sounds about right.

Hard to call them fools.  He's been good all season and 5 straight starts of 2 ER or less.  Hard to predict this outcome.

how many can you really count on?

 

Cole is about the only one I've had this year I could count on.

Well, I believe we can count on aces and to a lesser extend in pitchers who are above average pitchers. For the others, it's impossible to predict with enough confidence.

Richards looked real nice in his 1st inning back. Was all around the zone, several strikes were even missed (2K and a weak ground out)

FA 94-97 MPH, also cut it a few times at 88/90 range with nice movement, SL looked good at 87-89 MPH and plenty of spin, a few curves mixed in at 80 or so

Better fantasy expert advice would have been “don’t stream bad pitchers, even in good matchups, under any circumstances”

 

Generally if you're at the point where you're streaming to make up ground in W and K, you know the risks to your ratios, and just need a lot of things to break right to have any chance.  If the pitchers you're grabbing weren't ratio risks, they wouldn't be on your wire for streaming purposes.  And it's not like highly-owned guys are immune from blowing up this season.

Strasburg looking like a joke right now.

I guess "Aces gonna ace" won't apply to him tonight!

Pitcherlist ranked Strasburg as the number 1 tonight. Look at the result... No need to add that most so-called fantasy experts and their expert advice said to avoid Cardinals' batters this week because of their matchups against Nationals's aces. Once again, look at the result...

Sport is unpredictable.
