The Rangers must be looking for a Bubba sparks to rock it very well, because they’re calling up outfielder, Bubba Thompson (1-for-3). Looking at my fantasy team with no speed, “Ah, yeah, I found you, team with an outfield that is booty.” Seeing Prince Fielder’s poster in the Hall of Legends in Arlington, singing softly, “Booty, booty, booty, booty, rockin’ everywhere.” Walking into the VIP section of the loge deck, “Hit the player’s club for bout a month or two,” rubs pluot on shirt, “Get it ripe, get it right, hit it with a bite.” Okay, sorry! Bubba Sparxxx makes me laugh. So, the Rangers are calling up Bubba Thompson, whose minor league numbers are eye-poppingly gorge: In 80 games at Triple-A, he hit 13 homers and .303, with 49 steals. Get it ripe, get it right, steal a base on sight! He was in Itch’s top 60 outfielder prospects, and, one love to Itch, but even if he wasn’t, and he had 49 steals in a half season, I’d be interested, because the speed category for all of my fantasy teams is booty, booty, booty, booty, suckin’ everywhere. Anyway, here’s what else I saw yesterday in fantasy baseball:
Cole Ragans – 5 IP, 0 ER, 7 baserunners (4 BBs), 3 Ks, as he was called up for his first MLB start. Ragans hasn’t been mentioned on this site in so long the last mention of him was by Prospect Mike — Hey, Prospect Mike! — he said, “This lefty’s plus fastball and plus change-up make him an interesting upside play. Unfortunately, he’s currently recovering from Tommy John surgery, so there’s not much to say about his 2018 performance.” 2018! If only I could tell Prospect Mike what was to come in the next four years. Like yesterday, I drank a Jamba Juice and coughed up phlegm. Prospect Mike could’ve been warned! Any hoo! Ragans is an AL-Only guy.
Johnny Cueto – 8 IP, 3 ER, 11 baserunners, 4 Ks, ERA at 2.91. The amount of mileage I’ve gotten out of Cueto in an Only league is better than I’ve gotten from my car in roughly two years.
Didi Gregorius – Released by the Phils. Didi, Didi, Didi, can’t you see? You can’t hit .181 as a Phillie.
Rhys Hoskins – 2-for-2, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer. Also, in this game, Alec Bohm (1-for-2, 3 RBIs) hit his 8th homer. That’s right, kids, not the star of Roger Rabbit, but this game featured Bohm/Hoskins!
Noah Syndergaard – 5 IP, 4 ER, 11 baserunners, 2 Ks, ERA at 4.02. This start was vs. the Gnats, too. I don’t know what’s happened to Syndergaard. Usually Tommy John leads to loss of command, not loss of swagger. Well, I guess he did throw a complete game yesterday, so there’s that sideways emoji screaming I’m not drinking any f***ing Merlot!
Willson Contreras – 2-for-8, 2 runs and his 15th homer. That could’ve been yours, Mets! You could’ve traded the Cubs Kumar Rocker. Oh, wait.
Marcus Stroman – 6 2/3 IP, 3 ER, 5 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 4.00. If you throw out his nine-run, pre-IL disaster, he has a 1.74 ERA, 0.91 WHIP in 57 IP since April 26th. That looks more like the Marcus Stroman that we’ve come to know across many seasons. Solid ratios, okay strikeouts, tiny legs. Streamonator likes his next one, and I agree.
Miles Mikolas – 6 1/3 IP, 3 ER, 9 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.92. Waiting in a 30-minute line to speak at the microphone at a town hall meeting. Finally, I get up there, “Why does fantasy baseball cause ulcers, you ask?!” Everyone looks around, clearly no one asked. That’s okay, I continue, “Let’s start with a guy, in the pennant race! Who’s been great all year! Faces a club that is punting the season! And! And! And he can’t take the easy dub! For just beginners that’s one ulcer!” I then run down another twenty reasons why baseball drives me nuts until I’m asked to leave.
Paul Goldschmidt – 3-for-8, 2 runs and his 26th homer, and his 2nd homer in as many games, though the Cards have played three games now. Au Shizz!
Nolan Gorman – 1-for-4, 2 runs and his 12th homer. It’s with much regret for my own teams to tell you that Edman is no longer playing every game. I mean, I know he’s kinda sucked recently, but what about my deep fantasy teams? Maybe since Edman was better in the nightcap he might start playing.
Nolan Arenado – 2-for-6, 3 runs, 2 RBIs and his 21st homer. Check this out, I have the original handwritten lyrics to Blowin’ In The Wind. Yeah, they’re over by this open window–NOOOO!!! Torenado!
Jose Quintana – 6 IP, 1 ER, 1 hit, 2 walks, 7 Ks, ERA at 3.39. In retrospect, Quintana and Montgomery make perfect sense for the Cards, because no one expects anything from them, then they have a 3.50 or lower ERA and just get the job done.
J.D. Davis – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer. The Giants turn “fourth bats off the bench” into All-Stars.
Mookie Betts – 1-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 25th homer. Mookie Best!
Trea Turner – 1-for-4 and his 18th homer, hitting .305. Treat Urner is not making anyone beg!
Clayton Kershaw – Left yesterday’s start saying, “My back.” So, he was either misremembering the song My Humps or he hurt himself.
Jesus Sanchez – Demoted to the minors. Jesus might rise again, but it’s not gonna be on my teams, and not before Easter of next year.
Peyton Burdick – Was called up by the Marlins. The word on the street is Peyton is here to stay and will get everyday playing time. The Marlins want to see what they have for 2023. (Read between the lines: They’ve seen enough of Jesus Sanchez.) So, if the Marlins want to see if Burdick will take root, or at least not make things too hard to swallow. Am I simply reading the WebMD page for burdock root? Yeah, maybe. Burdick looks like he’s taking after so many Marlins’ bats before him, he hit 14 HRs in 88 Triple-A games and .229 with serious contact issues and some speed (8 SBs). That’s an NL-Only flyer at this point.
Edward Cabrera – Activated from the IL, and supposed to start today. If he were dropped in your league, I hope it wasn’t on his head. You could pick him up, but his command is so wonky, I’ll prolly be more careful than with most guys. Though, vs. the Cubs does sound enticing. Ugh, he’s roping me in, isn’t he?
Tyler Naquin – 2-for-4 and his 8th and 9th homer in his first game in Metco. He won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy column, but he immediately goes into the hot schmotato category. The problem: Mets have become way more platoon-heavy than I remember them in years past. They now have Naquin/Canha; Guillorme/Escobar and Vogelbach/Vogelfront.
Pete Alonso – 2-for-4, 3 RBIs and his 29th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Albombso!
Daniel Vogelbach – 2-for-4 and his 14th homer, and 2nd homer in as many games. Hot schmotato alert–Oh, shoot, he just ate that schmotato. C’mon, man!
Ronald Acuña Jr. – 1-for-4, 2 RBIs and his 9th homer. Tildaddy says he’s done reading the paper!
Kyle Wright – 6 IP, 6 ER, 4 HRs allowed, ERA at 3.22. How long until he’s shut down? Another start? Three more?
Brandon Lowe – 3-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 8th homer, and 2nd homer in four games. The cheers of Tampa fans screaming, “Let’s go Brandon,” are getting weird looks. Hmm, not sure what that’s about.
Jeffrey Springs – 6 IP, 0 ER, 4 baserunners, 6 Ks, ERA at 2.50. Streamonator liked Springs last night — hope Springs yadda — but doesn’t like his next one.
MJ Melendez – 2-for-4, 2 runs and his 11th homer, as he hits leadoff. For every ten “Should I drop Melendez” questions, he hits one home run. It’s now up to you.
Salvador Perez – 2-for-4, 4 RBIs and his 15th homer, hitting .215. Pfft, he hasn’t been 215 since middle school.
Jackie Bradley Jr. – Designated for assignment. Maybe I’m being too harsh, but there should be some accountability for bringing in guys who you know are going to do nothing, and, when they do nothing, you just cut them. Are the Red Sox just dumb? Is there some kind of tax fraud going on and JBJ was a write-off they needed? Is JBJ blackmailing someone? I have questions, y’all!
Justin Verlander – 6 IP, 0 ER, 3 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 1.73. Guys and five lady readers, he’s doing this after Tommy John surgery. At 39 years old.
Chas McCormick – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 3 RBIs and his 11th homer. Says there he has 11 homers, but if you would’ve told me he had less than five, I would’ve believed you. Chas McSneakuponyou.
Teoscar Hernandez – 1-for-5 and his 16th homer. If he finishes with less than 20 homers, I will eat my hat. Thankfully, I’m wearing a giant Nacho hat made of tortilla.
Vladimir Guerrero Jr. – 2-for-5, 3 RBIs and his 22nd homer, hitting .286. Cake Batter make you go yum!
Alek Manoah – 6 IP, 2 ER, 6 baserunners, 5 Ks, ERA at 2.45. Used to say this a lot last year (when it was a compliment), but this doode reminds me so much of a young Lance Lynn. He takes a comebacker off his elbow. No big whoop! Comes back the next start and throws 100.
Sonny Gray – 5 IP, 0 ER, 1 hit, 5 BBs, 5 Ks, ERA at 3.19. Haven’t seen a Gray that wild since I accidentally walked into a Designing Women theme night at a 40-and-over bar.
Hunter Gaddis – Sounds like he’ll start tonight for the Guardians vs. the Astros. Wonder if he ever shared a tent in a public park with Evan Gattis. Guessing not. He has a lights-out screwball, not a very fast fastball and iffy command. Outside of AL-Only, I’d be watching more than participating.
Janson Junk – 2 1/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 6.48. More like trash.
Taylor Ward – 1-for-5 and his 14th homer. Since June 1st, he has 4 homers and is hitting .215. Ward Cleaver, as in that’s the hatchet he’s swinging.
Kurt Suzuki – 1-for-4 and his 3rd homer. Also, in this game, Jo Adell (1-for-4) hit his 4th homer, Mickey Moniak (1-for-4) hit his 1st homer, and Jared Walsh (1-for-4) hit his 14th homer, as the Angels hit seven solo homers, and lost. I will now cackle loud enough for them to hear me at Bobby Grich’s Bar & Grill in downtown Irvine.
Shohei Ohtani – 3-for-5, 2 runs, 2 RBIs and his 23rd and 24th homer. It’s almost like Ohtani and Trout take turns babysitting the scrubs. Trout was like, “I did it for a bunch of years before you, give me a little break, would ya?”
Seth Brown – 2-for-2, 2 RBIs and his 16th homer, and his 4th homer in four games, as he hits right behind Murphy, which Dan Quayle would not like. Brown will be appearing in the Buy column that’s coming later today. That’s right, the fantathtic Seth Brown!
Ramon Laureano – 2-for-5, 2 runs, 4 RBIs and his 12th homer, and 2nd homer in four games. He won’t be in this afternoon’s Buy column, because I think he’s rostered in more leagues than the 50% cutoff, but if he’s available in yours, then do your thang. Yes, thang.
A.J. Puk – 1/3 IP, 0 ER, ERA at 2.01, as he registered his 3rd save, and you gotta be freakin’ kidding me? A’s need to win so bad they pull Zach Jackson (2/3 IP, 1 ER, ERA at 3.00) with one out to go in the 9th? You can’t just let him try to nail it down? Jesus Effin’ Aguilar!
Joe Musgrove – 4 2/3 IP, 6 ER, ERA at 3.00. I wouldn’t dream of pointing out that I told everyone to sell Musgrove as the 1st half was winding down because of his splits. Nope, wouldn’t dream of it.
Ryan McMahon – 2-for-3, 5 RBIs and his 9th homer. Yikes, I had no idea he was hitting for such poor power this year. Has he missed all home games?
Brandon Woodruff – 6 1/3 IP, 2 ER, 11 baserunners, 3 Ks, ERA at 3.49, as he took on the never-say-die Pirates. Or rather, never-say-argh.
Mike Brosseau – 1-for-3, 2 RBIs and his 5th homer. Brosseau, “Whoa!”
Omar Narvaez – Hit the IL with a quad strain, but his replacement, Victor Caratini (1-for-3) hit his 8th homer. That’s right, the Brewers will turn to Caratini, i.e., the Brewers got hops like a rabbit.
Christian Yelich – 0-for-4, 3 Ks, hitting .261. He’s slugging .391; Eric Hosmer is slugging .391. ‘Member in the preseason, we were all debating Bellinger or Yelich? The correct answer was neither. Yelich and Bellinger are the Gotye of MLB. They dropped one banger of a summer. Now they’re just somebody we used to know.
THERE’S A NEW POST FOR FOLLOWUPS FOR ME
Jesus Sanchez droppable in 12T dynasty leagues? 15 minor league spots but only “droppable” options would be Blake Walston, Jordan Westburg or Garrett Mitchell.
Any reason to roster Jhoan Duran any longer?
Not like he’s getting that closer gig now.
would you drop Schwindel for JD Davis in an NL keeper.
Bubba or Massey in an AL keeper.
Do you like Bubba better than Isbel, as he would be the drop.
I would go Bubba, but you should wait to hear from Itch
Planning to drop M. Keller. My replacement is… Lodolo, Quintana, or Odorizzi?
Could also drop Ashby and pick up another from the list above, but I can hold onto Ashby as a $2 keeper for next year which seems more worthwhile.
Quintana…Meh, hold Ashby
Y! 12 team H2H 6×6 OPS QS
B. Rodgers or India?
Would you take a flyer on Bubba over Jarren? I could also drop Carlson.
Yeah, lose Jarren
Thanks. In another (OPS) league, how would you rank Bubba, Laureano and Carlson as a last bench bat?
Thanks. I assume Eloy, O’Neill, Pham and Rowdy are all ahead of those two guys?
Great. Thanks again!
pham is ahead of nobody becasue hes worthless. look at his last 200 at bats. yikes. hes got like a 400 ops
grey what do you think of this trade i would say cortes and framber alone are worth the other 3
last place team gives
harper, nestor cortes and framber
to 3rd place team
for byran reynolds, giolito and tony gonsolinn
Meh, I’d want the Harper trade, but it’s not that lopsided
thanks grey …
Best SP tomorrow? (Stream ordered).
Ashby vs Cin ($16)
Detmers @ Sea ($9)
JoMo vs NYY ($3)
Ranger Suarez vs Was ($2.8). Surprised so low
Grey, code red! Soto is being made available in our league and his owner (racist!) is asking for Franco. Soto would cost $51 next year and Franco $14. So kind of mortgaging the future to win now – just call me the San Diego Laser Shows! The fact that I have Dansby for $1 next year makes it somewhat more palatable.
Do you do it?
HAHA — I’d take Soto, win now
Hot schamato alert — Oh, he ate the schamato.
LMFAO!!!!! Post of the year right there.
SON is yucky on Mahle in MIN vs.TOR. Has SON adjusted at all of Mahle’s new team? I have Berrios and Mahle in a H2H league…would you start them both, one or none? Big playoff implications for me.
I’d start Mahle, not Berrios
Owen Wilson always seemed like the type that would wind up being cast in a Razzball vid. Nice get guys!
12-team H2H with QS and OBP.
You starting Manea @LAD today?
Would you drop William Contreras for Jose Trevino?
I am not
Are you starting Robbie Ray vs the Angels today, after his two awful starts vs the Astros?
Thanks, have a good weekend!
Start or Sit
Manaea @ LAD (Gonsolin)
Steele v MIA (Neidert)
Thanks as always.
My closer situation was royally messed up from the trade deadline. Which 4 of these are the best to roster for some saves without destroying my ratios:
J Hernandez TEX
J Adam TB
R Montero HOU
R Wick CHC
Z Jackson OAK
D Jimenez OAK
J Quijada LAA
T Rogers MIL
H Strickland CIN
P Fairbanks TB
L Garcia SD
M Melancon ARI
Melancon, Hernandez, Wick, Jackson
Start one, neither or both ?
Lodolo @ MIL
Montas @ STL
12-team roto league, over projected innings cap but needing Ks and a QS
Gotta start Montas…I don’t trust Lodolo
Wild as Grey at a Designing Women Theme night cracked me up. Was Grey a Delta Burke guy or an Annie Potts guy?
Trade Riley for Tatis in a dynasty league, yes? Are we still worried about Fun’s shoulder?
Annie Potts, all day!
I’d go for Tatis, but there’s some worry there, yeah
Thanks! Keep feeling better and enjoy the weekend
You can get addicted to a certain kind of badness…
The guy on the right
Haha… the guy on the right was the kid who played the triangle in high school band
It’s a shame they could only afford the one guitar
Thoughts on Muncy ROS? Looking for some pop and won’t have to give up a ton to get him. 15 team roto with OBP. Thanks!
If you’re paying nothing, take th eflyer, but I have no hope in him being healthy
Keepers for next year in an auction league – pls pick 2
Gorman-$5 with 2 yr of control
Bell- $12 with 1 yr control
Vaughn – $5 with 2 yrs control
Franco-$1 with 1 yr control
Again pls pick 2. Thanks!
Wander, then tough call…I think Gorman
Happ has been ice cold for me in a 12-team H2H. While both Hays and Mountcastle haven’t been much better recently, do you prefer either over Happ for the final two months? Thanks!
Nah, not right now
Between Suarez, Miranda, and Vargas—who’d be best to ride out for the remainder of the fantasy baseball season? Asking for a friend (Me! I’m my own best friend.)
12 team, 5×5 roto
Would you stream one, both or neither in a 12 teamer?
Lauer v. Cin
Ashby v. Cin
Two players on my waivers- pick up or hold
A. Catcher question- Kirk got waived, pick him up over Heim?
B. Battle of the Urias’s- Luis to replace Ramon?
Hope you continue to feel better!
A. Yes B. Yes
Drop Riley Greene for Seth Brown?
How would you rank Ashby, Lodolo, Cobb ROS?
Yes, if you don’t need SBs
Hmm…matchup dependent, but I think I’d put those SPs in that order
Hernandez has been impresssive, and Texas is probably no worse than Miami.
Hernandez or Tanner Scott?
That’s fair, can try Hernandez
Barlow is on his way back very soon. Short leash for any and all so a mess
In a 12 tm H2H league 7×7 (HRs, Runs, RBIs, SBs, OBP, SLG, Ks), would you trade Dansby Swanson for Josh Bell and Jared Walsh? I have Jean Segura and Luis Urias as back up MI (Bichette is my main SS).
Sounds fair if you need corners
Dynasty league: Yorke or Massey
Massey, but I’d ask Itch
BWAHAHAHA @ Gotye…ah, that shiz funny, I don’t care who your are..
<through laughing tears>
I totally need SP help! Its a mess. <now crying tears>.
I got: Verlander, Lopez, Gilbert, Strider, Urquidity.
Strider and Verlander are pretty solid. What are your thoughts on the other 3?
Here’s how I feel:
I keep wanting to drop Lopez, but in my ESPN league he is owned by 95.6%. I keep thinking: WTF!? do they know something I don’t? Do they know Snoop? Thats why I havent dropped him like its hot. Thinkin I will drop him and some schmuck will pick him up and he will be great!..WTF? Drop and stream?
Gilbert’s been good, and served me well so far. Concerned they will start shutting him down…I NEED K’s, QS, and W’s…Drop and Stream?
Urquidity I picked up as a streamer on July 1, and I haven’t been able to let him go!.. Like a one night stand that I keep asking over when I’m drunk, and suddenly she lives there. SON apparently is in love with him forever, and I guess I am too. Thinking of keeping him around…?
<Pseudobulbar affect (PBA) laughing now>
I’d wait until they’re shutting down Gilbert before dropping him…Keep Urquidy until he’s not good…Lopez you can prolly lose if there’s decent streamers
Also I have Kirby..sorry. have him for his next start tomorrow vs LAA and SON loves him. Stream him, or hang on for upside?
I don’t trust Kirby anymore this year
Wow! Thanks for the heads up on that
I refuse to believe Cole Ragans is a baseball player and not the hero of a 90s direct to video action movie
And Peyton Burdick is definitely the star of a CW teen show. Manfred has gone too far this time.
Peyton Burdick was on the A-Team, I think
Did you see the video of “Uncle” Tony La Russa nodding off in the first inning the other day? I’m not sure if he was hungover, still drunk, or old age…
Hahaha, he’s so amazingly terrible
For what it is Croenworth I think Jake just became a platoonish player after the moves at the deadline. Thoughts?
I think each guy there is gonna get extra days off, Jake’s was just yesterday…I wouldn’t be surprised to see Profar benched this weekend for a game and Myers and so on…Then Tatis returns
Laureano is 79% rostered on Fantrax; 100% in RCLs; 33% in my 10-team ESPN leagues; 14% ESPN overall.
Yeah, makes sense, tbh
Good Morning Razz!
Now that R Iglesias has been traded to Atlanta he’s basically worthless to me. Need Saves and we can only start 2 RP everyday. I also have E Clase as my other RP.
I can hold Iglesias but bench him in case Jansen gets injured. Really don’t want to waste the roster spot on him but I can if you think its worth it.
I need to get saves, in your opinion who gets me the most ROS?
Can lose Raisel…Soto
Have a great weekend
12-tm H2H cat keeper (keep 10) CATS – (9) R,H,HR,RBI,SB,BB,AVG,OPS,XBH – (8) W,CG,SV,K,GIDP,ERA,WHIP,QS. LIMIT of 3 moves per week (no streaming). We also get (4) IL spots
Guy in my league really wants Eloy. I feel like he’s just starting to heat up but injury risk scares me a bit. He’d be a keeper for me for sure but I just don’t know with Eloy anymore, what’s your take on him?
I need Pitching help (& a catcher) so trade would be:
Eloy, Kirby, S. Barlow +high picks
S. Perez, Darvish, Holmes + (1 pitcher from: J.Ryan, N. Lodolo, D. May)
What pitcher would you add to that? I kinda like May because of the strikeout upside.
C – EMPTY
1B – P. Goldschmidt
2B – K. Marte
3B – K. Hayes
SS – C. Seager
CI – R. Tellez
MI – J. India
LF – C. Yelich
CF – M. Betts
RF – A. Garcia
Util – E. Jimenez
BN – Profar
BN – R. Greene
IL – T. Stephenson *IL60
SP – Aaron Nola
SP – M. Fried
SP – J. Urquidy
RP – S. Barlow (RP)
RP – C. Doval (RP)
P – J. Hader (RP)
P – C. Javier
BN –P. Sandoval
BN – A. Ashby
BN – A. Wood
BN –M. Kopech
BN – G. Kirby
IL – L. McCullers Jr. (IL60)
the guy also trying to throw me JD Martinez (for additional high picks) but he’s been ice cold, you think he picks it up, worth acquiring ?
Worth the gamble, but I am losing faith in him
I like Eloy, but hat’s a solid trade for you…
awesome, and which pitcher would you select from D. May, J. Ryan, N. Lodolo
“Yelich and Bellinger are the Gotye of MLB. They dropped one banger of a summer. Now they’re just somebody we used to know.”
Thanks for that Grey ! Literally laughed out loud reading that one!
Wonder how many got the reference. Certainly not me!
That song was literally the biggest earworm in my lifetime. Could not get that song out of my head for MONTHS. And now, it’s back again. Thanks Grey!
It was so awfully wonderful
Don’t research it, Vin…You don’t want to know the reference song, trust me
12 team h/h points redraft……have the all important closer question…..need one and will have to drop other 2…..Tay Rogers…D Williams…Helsley
just saying ….Randy Arozarena…4/5..2b..2rbi..sb
12 team h/h points redraft…….am I dropping Luis Arraez 114 hits/91 of them are singles/57 runs scored has done little in last 3 weeks …for Mitch Haniger who had 39 HR’s/100 Rbi’s and 110 runs scored last season …….thanks
Nah, not in a points league…Not yet at least
What, Musgrove is not a second half pitcher? Would have been nice if you had mentioned that before the trade deadline! Like maybe four or five times even.
1) When active (imminent), Chris Taylor or Josh Rojas?
2) Today. Pick 1. Gibson (vs Was) or Kluber (@ Det).
note-1. I’m surprised Streamometer isn’t more confident in Gibson (-$4.4).
note-2. Most interest in win (Gibson .33; Kluber .41). I don’t consider Josiah Gray that much to fear.
Rojas 2. Kluber
Edward Cabrera is available in my league (15 team mixed). I already have Jesus Luzardo, and Braxton Garrett. Is grabbing Cabrera having too many Marlins SPs, or can you never have enough Marlins SPs? It’d be nice if they could get some more wins, but that offense is just so awful.
Speaking of awful, Luis Robert was recently returned to the lineup. What was awful about it was dude came off the IL, and then didn’t play for the first 2 games. Why would you take him off the IL, and then not play him. Is Tony La Russa that awful, that he just removes him from the IL randomly and then forgets to put him in the lineup? Or could there be some big brain reason why he would come off the IL and not play? Just sucked because I couldn’t make roster moves until I moved him off my IL, so I got a guy activated but not playing… Thanks Tony.
Can never have too many Marlins SPs! Yeah, very frustrating with Robert… For a HOF manager, that seems like a rudderless ship
Need to lose 1 for Strider. Main focus is ERA. Cole, Cease, Ray, Gausman, LWebb, Cobb, Wright. Figure from your write up it’s Wright. Thanks and enjoy the weekend.
Wright — you too!
Rest of season- Brandon Lowe or DJ LeMahieu?
a. So great and only 6 days to the start of the NFL pre-season!
b. Signed up Gaddis. Giddy-up, Gaddis.
c. Signed up Gorman ahead of STL’s trip to Coors. Nolan is a-rollin’.
d. George Carlin quote of the day for August 5, 2022
‘A high-concept, low-profile, medium-ranged ballistic missionary – a street-wise smart bomb.
A top gun bottom feeder, I wear power ties, I tell power lies, I take power naps, I take victory laps.’
from Ode to the Modern Man 2004
A. Make sure to check out Donkey!
a. I knew you’d like the ‘…take victory laps…’ part, ’cause you like to take them too!
b. My wife and I watched Season 2 of Capitani. Check it out on Netflix, well season 1 first for some context and then season 2.
c. Have a nice weekend.
A. Haha, I do!
B. Ah I will, thanks!
C. You too, Ante!
Edman was 3/5 with 2 RBI and a steal in the game he played yesterday!!
Stupid Hicks took away Quintana’s win and kept it for himself.
HA! Yeah, Edman did look good, I watched that game…Hopefully he plays every day and back at leadoff
