I really hope I'm not going to be the guy left holding the bag on Charlie Blackmon. 

 *Sniff Sniff* he's been a great, consistent pet for me over the years. I don't want to have to tell the kids he's "happier than ever" and "running free" with other dogs at the "farm" this year.

some players age in dog years, blackman is actually 106 years old, at least  he is playing like it.

The homestand with the Mets, Astros, and Phillies should provide some signal on Blackmon.  He's definitely a guy you'd rather sit in tough away matchups in the hopes that his Coors games make up for it, and there's still a chance of that happening.  Nothing really actionable if he is cooked since it's hard to believe someone's going to bite on him in a trade given the chance that he gets moved away from Coors if the Rockies are as bad as they look (and they probably are).  Just hold on and spot start him and hope for an OF4 return with OF2 upside.

Setting my lineup today, before the postponement, I sat Blackmon due to the matchup with deGrom. I can't remember ever sitting him at Coors field. But yeah, felt strange.

Carlos Martinez, the starter. And, maybe overall

“This was 11th consecutive C-Mart start that didn't go beyond 5.0 innings. He's 0-8 and team is 2-9 during stretch. ERA during span up to 8.15. Opponents slashing .310/.367/.531.”

Generally that doesn’t play in the Majors

Old Yeller Upton hit a Grand Salami last night, and suddenly everyone will be watching him again for the next few days. If he goes deep again tonight everyone will run to pick him up, it's so classic. Also of major note today, welcome back to the game a real old pooch named Ervin Santana, today's starter in the 2nd half of the twinbill for K.C. at home against the Jays!

This page has just turned into a “who is older than 30 and struggling” page 

the only real people that fit this page this season are Harvey and Bumgarner imho 

You forgot Jay Bruce who will probably be let go by the Yankees sooner than later.  They even officially announced he won't be playing 1B for them anymore.  That DJ will play 1B and Odor will play 2B ... at least until Voit returns. 

Bruce's bad play is what forced them to go trade for Odor.  You know you are bad when Odor becomes a priority for your team because of you haha.

Tell you what, Cavan is 26 and we can go ahead and put him down too.

Per Rotoworld: 

Jay Bruce will retire after Sunday's game vs the Rays, according to Yankees manager Aaron Boone.

After the Yankees decided to move D.J. LaMahieu to first base, Bruce was no longer a viable option for everyday playing time after starting the season 3-for-34. The 34-year-old would retire with a .244/.314/.467 slash line across 14 major league seasons with 319 home runs, 951 RBI, and three all-star game appearances. Bruce won a Silver Slugger award with the Reds in 2012 and 2013. 

Lassie Gone Home.

I feel like Paxton has earned it too. Just broken down with too many injuries at this point in his career. It's time to grab the shotgun.

Diamondbacks designated RHP Anthony Swarzak for assignment.

The right-hander was off to a rough start in 2021 carrying a 9.64 ERA and 1.71 WHIP over 4 2/3 innings. The Diamondbacks recalled J.B. Bukauskas to take Swarzak's place on the roster.

He'll surely latch on somewhere else, but put this guy out to pasture already.

I'll take 30/20, 25/15, 15/15 with .270-.300 average all day in roto. Much better than decent.

I wouldn’t be so quick to write off Blackmon. 
All of this comes with the SSS 
The plate discipline is there currently his best K%, BB%, and Chase% in the last 7 years. 

His xBA (.288) and xSLG (.453) suggest positive regression from his current marks of .191 and .340. BABIP is .205 currently with career marks usually in the .325-.350 range. 

Hard hit rate is well above what he’s had recently and Exit velocity is right at his career averages. 
 

So I’m not seeing any real evidence of a skills breakdown. I’ll bet on the average to rebound, im not sure on the power. If he can get to that .285-.300 average he should get decent counting stats in the middle of Rockies lineup I’m in on that as a OF3-4 type in most leagues

Agree 100%. i find it interesting that everyone b*tching and moaning in this thread about Blackmon's performance is ignoring the fact that his ADP this season was MUCH lower this season than in past years. I drafted him 89th overall and I'm pretty confident that he'll finish better or equal to that value. if you drafted him late expecting him to return 3rd or 4th round value that's on you.
