    fielder pushes baserunner off the bag w/t tag…this non-rule pisses me off. it should be enforced and able to be challenged. cost the Cubs an out and at least 1 run.

  • yisman

    wow, Villar was safe

    they reviewed it and blew the call anyway

    Let me repeat. The Brewers stink.

  • me_mike84

    i think from now on im just gonna make a random lineup. its unbelievable how many of the expert recommendations fail. all i heard was tampa bay, brewers, cubs. top stacks. seems to be the same thing every night. i took a few from each team and sprinkled in a few orioles to be different. almost in last place

    agreed. dude failed to keep on the tag…which is pathetic. the standard way to play that as a fielder should be to keep the tag on and force the player off the bag…since it is apparently never called.

    Eight righties from Baltimore are very bad against two of the three pitches Yarbrough throws to righties, and he’s done after three innings so the Rays can bring in Chaz Roe who quickly gives up a double and single.

    Okay then.

    had i known Yarborough would get 61 pitches, i would have used him about 25%. not a great stat line in 3 innings of work, but a hell of a lot better than AALZOLAY…the player who i would have had used 25% less

  • PhoFever

    LMAO to all the compulsive early game stackers on Yahoo who thought their Blue Jays stacks had everyone beat.

  • ASalvaro

    I think it’s hilarious everybody is still playing in an18-5 game..every single time I’ve ever had stacks in a blow out they pull my players out so fast it makes my head spin

  • yisman

    Allen’s got a horseshoe

    every batter is making contact and not only that, but really hard contact, and everything is turning into an out

    last one was ridiculous

    ricocheted off Allen into foul territory and they still got the out

  • me_mike84

    im playing the 10 dollar showdown on dk. can someone explain why there are so many entries that have players not playing on their lineup? a lot of the people currently at the top have at least 1-2 non active players.

    Very, very rarely play MLB showdowns, but I’ve seen people play guys who shouldn’t get off the bench in NBA showdowns. I assume it’s a salary thing. They’ll take a zero on the cheap to load up the rest of the line up. No idea if it’s ever worked.

  • yisman

    Giants hard hit balls finally start turning into hits and Allen, the most expensive pitcher on the slate and the only reasonably “safe” play (LHP against the awful SF lineup) gets lit up

    4 innings, 6 runs

  • NYGfan1983

    allen damn bum

  • dbullsfan

    just want to pop in and say what a shit show tonight is, I have 2/6 of my lineups with both pitchers in the negative, I currently have a lineup almost at midnight Eastern that sits with 10.4 points, had they left Allen in their much longer the whole lineup might have gone negative.

    It’s a good strategy in mlb Showdown to use relief pitchers for salary relief

    *a good strategy when a shit pitcher shuts down a good offense

    (in other instances too) but I’m sure most of the top lineups don’t have too many Padres bats right now.
