    If rolling one line up I am doing Peacock/ Col. Mets haven’t been scoring and the Rockies get a great hitters park and look to have busted out last night. I am running 4 lineups and have both those combos covered. Plus a Berrios w/ Reds and Twins in case they blow up.

    Sigh dont know what to do

    Not a huge fan of the Thor/Mets idea. Thor is popular plus poor form so that hurts your shot in GPP of a high place then the Mets play in one of the worst parks plus not likely to see 9th inning at bats.

  • txdave41

    I did one Thor lineup, but I just know he is going to stand there on the mound and watch those ERs pour in.

    Thor isn’t giving up hard contact but also has not been striking out anyone. He gets to two strikes quickly but can’t put batters away. But on this slate I’m gonna roll the dice with him. If I had to rank pitching today, I’d go Thor, Folty, Morton. I don’t really wanna play anyone else as an SP2 but I can see rolling out Peacock. It’s one of those slates.

    I am a huge mets fan and this is so true. He isn’t using the 96 MPH slider to punch guys out. For whatever reason he is pitching to contact and they are all falling. His ceiling right now is 5-6 Ks where it used to be 10+.

    That being said I am 50% on him. With no Votto that lineup is really bad.

    Fairly easy to do Thor/Morton in cash. Also got a Tampa stack in tourney’s.

    He has the lowest HC, highest GB SS rate on the early slate – there has to be positive regression eventually right?

    Albies murders left handed pitching and he tries to bunt…

    If he can’t have “positive regression” (I believe that means he is due) against the Reds, then he isn’t going to have positive regression in the future!

    I’m a Mets fan too so I feel like I have real good insight when it comes to him.

    I bet the no score first inning at +115. I enjoyed it.

    Why?

    Reds are terrible?
    Bad hitting team?!?!?
    If he can’t be decent against a bad team, then maybe that is who is this year??

    Same story today. Thor struck out the first 2 batters today and has 1 more K (The Pitcher) in the next 3 innings. Frustrating.

    Thor has more fantasy points as a hitter this year than pitching.

    Because the solution to the flaw can be coachable or the problem can be random.

    Lucked my way into Kinsler in 3 lineups on Yahoo when I had to make a quick last second sub for someone who wasn’t starting. Of course, he’s paired with Faulty in every one of them.

  • PhoFever

    I had to make a quick, on the run last second sub for someone who wasn’t starting. Didn’t have time to redo the lineup. That’s what I get for building lineups at work.
