Anectotally/Anecdontally/Anecdontbelieve

Thought of these as I listened to Grey describe an anecdote from spring training. Definitions could be reworked as needed. Anectotally/Anectote(s): When a recent event bolsters the desired narrative or helps prove a point about a player. Anecdontally/Anecdont(s)/Anecdontbelieve: When a recent event ...

Walking to the Woodshed

Re: Sisyphus Start

Alternates:

"Sisyphus Stream" in referring to must-make, sure-to-fail streaming start.

Sisyphus Start

A start you know is likely to be a disaster, but (for one reason or another) you must make anyway.

Generally ace SPs going into tough matchups or back-to-the-wall streaming options.

Streamers for 9/24

I've included the Streamonator projections, but wanted to see if anyone had some gut feelings on today's starters. Pick 2 of the following:

Gibson vs CLE (-9.3)
Anderson @ MIN (-23.6)
E. Ramirez @ BOS (-33.5)
Miley vs TB (0.7)
Cosart vs PHI (-0.6)
Kennedy vs SF (8.1)

Gattis - Talk me off the ledge

Help me mustached Moses... Evan Gattis is currently on pace to finish the season with 0 hits and 100,000 strikeouts. Picked up Avila in RCL to weather the plague, but is it time to sacrifice the lamb or is there a promised land on the other side of this desert?
