    Going with the pinch-hit HR angle? Think it's going to happen two games in a row, with the same team? Read More

    Yeah, I mean, you're going to do you. If May was in the 6-7 K range, I might even get behind it. Just don't see it here. They both pitched on the 18th. Gonsolin threw 41, May threw 18. Not a massive difference here. May has pitched more frequently through... Read More

    In fact, other than a sick ownership game, Gonsolin numbers are basically equal to May's, you know he's starting, and probably has a lot longer leash. Read More

    You're overthinking the bullpen situation. 1) They were off Monday. 2) They're off tomorrow. 3) It was a shortened season, so all these arms have less wear and tear on them at this point than usual. 4) They hardly used the pen yesterday. 5) They won't use... Read More

    Because he hasn't thrown more than 2 innings in the playoffs, so why would they push him now? Nothings changed. It's been a month since he's thrown more than 30 pitches. May and Urias are probably pitching game 4, which I realize is 2 days rest, but, I do... Read More

    Why would I pay that price for 2 innings of "(player-popup #dustin-may)Dustin May":/players/dustin-may-1206050? "(player-popup #blake-treinen)Blake Treinen":/players/blake-treinen-14980 is half the price and probably just as likely to see 2 innings. Read More

    True... Imagine though, that he doesn't.... Having a hard time making final decisions. I have ZERO faith in Snell. So, him and Gonsolin specifically, it's a matter if raw points matter or not here, because I can see both easily falling in the 12 or less ... Read More

    Hopefully they don't let him make any personal decisions, or even make any suggestions. His time in Detroit went fine at first. He seemed to bond with the players, and seemed to be building in the right direction. The problem I, and I think most around h... Read More

    Probably just overall scheduling. They swept the Brewers in 2 games, so they didn't need him there. Then they didn't play for 5 days, so the pitching staff was fresh. They swept the Padres in 3 games, so they didn't really need him there. I'm guessing t... Read More

    He's 3K cheaper than Smith. Can't really compare. Cheap HR power is always high owned in showdown. Read More

    Leading off is a number. It's number 1. As in most likely to have the most AB's. More chances to put points up. Also puts better hitters behind him, which means he's more likely to come in if he gets on, and runs = same points as RBI's. No, it doesn't gua... Read More

    Akers was touted because he was 2K, coming off 9 carries, and got the coach hype treatment going into the game. Agree though that it's an apples and oranges comparison. Is Diaz todays Zeke Elliot would be more comparable. Read More

    They've had Rios as DTD since I think the Padres series, even as he's started multiple games in the Braves series. Maybe they're just getting lazy with the player designations. They add them as needed, then forget to take them off? Read More

    Can't really put a percentage on it. I'm not sure. I don't play a ton of MLB showdowns, so more so going off my memory. It happens. It just eats so much of your salary, but if the game is low scoring enough and both pitchers put up by far the highest score... Read More

    Point being, it's not like the pitcher would HAVE to hit if they hit around again. They've pinch hit for Barnes basically every game he's played this post season, except for 1 I believe, and that's the game Kershaw threw 8 innings. Not expecting him to get... Read More

  • MLB, 10/20 - 10/21

    They've only carried 2 catchers the whole playoffs, and they've pinch hit Barnes before. It most likely wouldn't be until his last AB, if they were down. They could also continue to pinch hit, for the guy who pinch hits for Barnes. So, saying they'd "los... Read More

  • MLB, 10/20 - 10/21

    Long story short, yes. Just depends on the game. Usually the winning line up has the higher scoring pitcher in it. More so, if they get 20+, or if they're cheap, like Luis Garcia a few days ago. If Kershaw and Glasnow dud, and only get 10-15 each, and th... Read More

    I'd think him and Pederson have PH risk, right? Last game Barnes played, Buehler started, and Barnes was pinch-hit for, but still got in 3 AB's. The game before that Barnes, caught for Kershaw, and got pinch hit for after 2 AB's, for Smith, but Smith is i... Read More

    It worked for Lowe the other day...maybe it works for Diaz here. It's really easily with baseball to go too deep into the numbers and overthink things here. Diaz is dirt cheap for showdown, batting leadoff, platoon advantage technically, Kershaw has had i... Read More

    Totally forgot I changed it, until you mentioned it. I'm still seeing Sheed. It's been like 2 days. Maybe a day and a half. Got a little tired of it, and figured time to change it. I keep seeing these "(player-popup #blake-griffin)Blake Griffin":/players/... Read More

    It's a boost, although clean-up is nice too. I don't like him as much as you do.. Some of the strong numbers you mentioned, have holes. Yes, he had a .272 ISO against LHP last year, but just .047 this year. Kershaw has actually been a little better agai... Read More

    Alright, I know nothings really going on yet. They haven't even set the cap yet, I don't think, or announced when free agency would start. There's still figuring out all the "business" stuff. In the meantime, I was just curious if anyone had any bold pre... Read More
