For thousands of millennia, which is millions of years, Samoans were a persecuted people, due to their big bones.  One Samoan, Fa’a’la’a’la’la’la told one reporter, “If you ordered a flank steak, and got a thick ribeye, you’d be so pleased,” then Fa’a’la’a’la’la’la got choked up, “But if you order a five-foot, six-inch man and get a 485-pound man wearing a grass skirt, you make fun.”  However, through all this ridicule, the Samoans always had their main industry on the island.  An industry that sustained their people.  An industry that brought everyone together.  However, this industry has taken a hit this last year.  This industry is manufacturing tiki torches.  Fa’a’la’a’la’la’la said, “Now tiki torches make us racist?!  We’re big-boned Islanders, we can’t be racist!”  Now, the Samoan people may have had their torches snuffed, but have a new bright spot:  Sean Manaea.  He’s not big-boned and he has no apostrophes in his last name, but I can assure you he is Samoan.  He’s also a straight dazzlenozzle so far this year.  His command is at a minuscule 0.6 K/9, and his xFIP is 3.40.  His velocity is a little off, and his Ks haven’t been outstanding, but in the early going, with pitching as it’s been, I’d buy Manaea everywhere.  If not for him, do it for Fa’a’la’a’la’la’la.  Anyway, here’s some more players to Buy or Sell this week in fantasy baseball:

BUY

Chris Iannetta – I used my waiver claim the other day to pick up Iannetta, which is to say I don’t think very highly of my waiver claim.

Tyler Austin – Imagine if one of these secondary guys on the Yanks clicks, it’ll be like Jay Z and Beyonce having everything, and also having the world’s cutest kid.  Tyler Austin, you better not be Blue Ivy!  I can only handle so much!

Ryan Flaherty – More of a hot schmotato than anything, but if you grab him exactly when you drop Jack Flaherty, you can switch the two like Indiana Jones and two idols, and a wall won’t come down on your team.

Yolmer Sanchez – The White Sox look better than I expected.  They don’t look great — they might strike out every game like they’re facing a pitching machine that has taken over the world with 128 MPH fastballs in a dystopian future.  Yolmer, incredibly, has been one of the better contact guys.

Brian Anderson – Not overly impressed with the Marlins, so I’m like everyone who has ever seen and/or heard about the Marlins, but Brinson and Anderson have peaked my interest, which is not a euphemism for a pup tent, which is a euphemism.

Christian Villanueva – In three months, we’re going to look back at this first week and think, “Damn, I wish I grabbed (insert name).”  It’s not 100% clear who that player is yet, but I’m leaning towards Villanueva.

Miguel Andujar – Did you hear about the senile Latino?  He kept calling everyone, “Andujar.”

Eduardo Escobar – I don’t want to say you’re Robert De Niro in the Awakenings with your reaction time, but are you waiting 79 games into Polanco’s suspension to pick up Escobar?

Cory Spangenberg – With Wil Myers on the Dizz-Elly (totally a saying!), Spangenberg could see more playing time.  I could’ve also listed Hunter Renfroe, and, what do you know, I just did.  Snuck it up on you!  Or sneaked, if some nerds are reading.  NERDS!

Dansby Swanson – He’s hitting over .300 through, like, a week.  So early, Shirley.  I hear that loud and clear, 10-4, good buddy, but maybe, who knows, Swanson’s figured out that special something, like, hitting a baseball.  Worth a flyer to see.

Aledmys Diaz – Not sure how his injury is healing, but I will bet everything Cougs and I have in our life savings that Diaz returns before Tulo.  Though, if you heard our last podcast, since then, Cougs has decided our dog, Ted, needs a behavioral psychologist, so you can imagine how much we have saved.  Very frugal, my wife.

Preston Tucker – If Chad Pinder is a PG-13 Doug Fister, what’s Preston Tucker?  A hot schmotato, you sicko!

Lane Adams – Obviously, if Preston Tucker is playing, then Adams isn’t, but they’re in Coors and the Hitter-Tron loves Lane.  It also loves a Ford Fairlane with its large tailpipe.

Jake Marisnick – Jake 61*nick is playing like one of those vintage years from Drew Stubbs.  Not every day, but when he does play he’s homering and/or stealing.

Lewis Brinson – Yes, he’s about a month away from a Quad-A label, but I still have faith.  George Michael said you have to.  Not sure why he said it standing next to a 1950’s computer he called “The Sports Machine.”

Keone Kela – How do I get in one of these leagues where a closer like Kela is available?  Do I have to pay?  Because that would be even better.

Keynan Middleton – I have no idea what The Sciosciapath is going to do if the Angels have a lead in the 9th.  I’m almost positive Middleton, Bedrosian, Parker, and The Sciosciapath all don’t know either, but I would grab Middleton.

Jacob Barnes – Is it me are there like fifteen hundred Jakes/Jacobs now playing baseball?  Lot of kids growing up idolizing Jake Westbrook.  Any hoo!  Knebel’s gone for a few, at least, and more likely a while.  I grabbed Jeremy Jeffress, but that was out of desperation.  I’d grab Barnes, then Josh Hader, for vulturing saves.  And even, maybe, oh, God, I can’t believe I’m saying this, Fatt Albers.

Nate JonesJoakim Soria looked cooked yesterday, and not a gentle sauté, but a ‘sitting under one of those heat lamps for six hours until even bacon is inedible.’ I could see grabbing Jones, just in case.

Jake Junis – Tyler MahleReynaldo Lopez – All dem early starter breakout candidates! “What about me, Papa Roach?!”  I don’t know about you, Kyle Gibson, and please don’t call me Papa Roach.  “Sorry, was grasping at nicknames, and that was my LAST RESORT!”

Andrew Triggs – This is more of a Stream-o-Nator call, like the call it makes to the number it finds on Facebook for its high school sweetheart.  “You’re married with kids.  That’s great!”  *sobbing*

Jordan Montgomery – I like Jo-Mo in the big picture, but, for his next start, he’s also another Stream-o-Nator call.  “Have you thought about me?  Once when you were passing a junkyard?  That’s so nice to hear.”  *snorting through tears*

SELL

Alex Wood – Selling early is a goofy prop bet.  Similar prop bet to:  who is going to die at the end of The Americans’ final season — Paige, Stan, Elizabeth, Phillip or Henry in a hockey game?  Or maybe Ronald Reagan because we’re not sure what year it will end.  If you look at the Fantasy Baseball Buy/Sell Tool or our Fantasy Baseball Trade Analyzer (not clickbait at all), you’ll see one thing jump out at you, we’re still looking at preseason value on sells.  With all that said (Grey’s turning this ship around!), Wood doesn’t look right.  His velocity is down.  Could it be the cold weather?  His 1st two games were in Arizona and Los Angeles so, yeah, uh, no.  I think Wood might be a long man impersonating a starter — i.e., a shower, not a grower.  While the impersonation is decent, he’s no Rich Little.  I still like Wood compared to a lot of starters, and I wouldn’t trade him for a chicken wing battered in Flaming Hot Cheetos, but I would explore offers.  (Actually, that chicken wing sounds delicious.  Can you throw in an ashtray filled with gravy?)

    Omg it’s a buy/sell and I don’t even know what to do wib myself!

    These Hand jobs are getting worse and worse, so I grabbed up Yates. There’s far less sexual pun opportunity though, so I’m already might disappointed.

    But hey, thank god I drafted that “one reliable closer” I Hand, huh? Kela/Boxberger off the FA list have been nails – why did I waste a 16th round pick on a closer again? Gah. Every damn year. Let SAGNOF be my mantra from now to forever!

    Would you drop Ryon Healy for Nate Jones or Jacob Barnes? Or will I regret giving up on Healy so quickly?

      Sure, if bench bat — Barnes

  23. The Great knoche says:

    Didn’t activate Brantley. I might have missed his healthy highlight of the season

    I’m so happy for FRI buy sell. It’s my official happy hour bell.
    You had stage fright with C-Mart, are you starting Wacha tomorrow. Streamonator likes him ok. Also, my staff is Cmart – Castillo – CY Young Bauer – Corbin and Wacha. Do I need Wacha with streamers like Lopez available??

    THanks grey!

      Start him

    Add Danny Duffy to the sell list. Might be tough to get anything for him right now, but the dude ain’t right.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Agreed, I think he’s a drop in most shallower leagues

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: Definitely. Another sell (in redrafts): Ryan McMahon. Out of the lineup again today. Not sure why he’s on the big league roster if he’s going to ride the pine.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Yeah, McMahon’s a drop

      • Lucky Dog says:

        @Grey: see my post below. If you weren’t watching, that is.

      • Big Magoo

        Big Magoo says:
        (link)

        @Grey: The main thing that Duffy has going for him is his schedule. Just looked it up, and he’s scheduled to throw at home vs Seattle (good if Cruz is still out), at Toronto (meh), at Detroit (nice), and at home vs the White Sox (nice). Could turn his numbers around if he gets through those outings. Could be a good opportunity to sell after that. Wouldn’t want to bet on a guy who pitched through health issues last season and might struggle to win 10 games on that Royals team.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Totally agreed, he doesn’t look like he’s fooling anyone either

  28. Lucky Dog says:
    (link)

    A few observations about Danny Duffy today that won’t show up in the box score:
    • it was x-c-c-c-cold our there. Duffy was sleeveless with no fleece anything. Literally everyone on the field had something.
    • windy / gusty as heck too
    • Duffy looks fine physically – he was hopping it in there 92-95 consistently. His change looked good sitting 8/-84 and he even threw a nice curve/slurve for a low strike.
    • Kipness walked on what should have been a 3-1 count. Ball 2” higher and to the left was called a strike a couple batter later.
    • manager cane out and laid into Duffy before the Brantley AB. Duffy responded with a really nice pitch that Brantley blooped. More of a good hit than a bad pitch for sure.

    I think Duffy is going to be fine – in fact, I’d he’s a terrific buy-low candidate. Location today was a problem but only in the 1st inning. Velocity is rock solid so whatever injury Duffy has/had was between his ears. If I hadn’t just sold him, I would have bought him for sure.

    Today’s box score won’t look pretty, and that 1st inning was painful to watch, but Duffy is gonna be fine. Just had a 1-2-3 no stress 2nd inning.

    TL::DR, I think dude had the yips.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      Wow, really? Well, I didn’t watch it, so I’ll hold judgment, but he had shoulder tightness 2 weeks ago, that is hiding something usually

      • Lucky Dog says:
        (link)

        @Grey: of his fastballs, most were 95z

        He just couldn’t locate early on.

        I just watched the 1st inning again; and I’m starting to regret dealing him for Didi.

        This dude is fine & a really really good buy-low candidate on it. I’d state my entirely nonexistent reputation as a professional baseball analyst that I’m not on it.

        Jokes aside, make the owner an offer – you’ll get him for peanuts and if I’m right you’ll get a really nice return. Owners are panicking, clearly.

        • Grey

          Grey says:
          (link)

          Not locating isn’t bad, that’s fixable… Low velocity, and getting hit is a problem, but sounds like he might not have that problem

      • Lucky Dog says:
        (link)

        @Grey: he’s looking filthy now. He’s making Encarcion look silly, and has retired 7-straight. Make that 8.

        Here’s the thing – the low or outside/inside fastballs don’t work at all if he couldn’t locate early.

        Now that he’s got his confidence back he’s cruising. Establishing that fastball is everything. He’s got Brantley 0-2 as I click “post comment”

        • Lucky dog says:
          (link)

          @Lucky Dog: just K’d brantley.

            @Grey: see how Carrasco has the undershirt on?

            Yeah – dudes in the field have the full fleece hoods.

            Duffy got nuthin. Just rawdogging it out there. I get it – I used to be a pretty good pool player. I hated playing with sleeves.

            @Grey:
            Oh yeah – one more thing about that 1st inning:
            At one point; an Indians hitter (EE I think) called for time
            Duffy was already partly into his windup. He looked up, saw EE stepping out of the box, and assumed the ump called for time.
            It should hav been a balk. Ump knew he blew it.
            Manager came out, yelled at ump, duffy stood around for a while.

            None of that is helpful to a pitcher who was already struggling.

                (link)

                @Grey: he didn’t trust his stuff. 35 pitch first inning.

                Now here we are, 4.0 IP, 75 pitches.

                Woulda been 65 if not for that error.

                I think Duffy is gonna be fine.

    Howdy master grey!!!!
    Love your tag line referencing the hulkster on this wrestlemania weekend! Speaking of the hulk hogan i got my newborn son a onesie that says hulkamania so he has something to wear for wrestlemania on Sunday!

    Anywho, H2h pts/ weekly/ redraft

    Lost will Myers to DL I had him at 1b, however I can move hosmer from IF to 1b then Brandon belt to IF?

    — since Myers is DL I can slot him into the DL spot on my roster & add someone without dropping anyone:
    Here’s who I’m eyeing, joe mauer, matt Davidson (3b/DH), chris owings (2b/SS/OF), joe panik, josh Harrison (2b/3b).

    — drop Jackie Bradley jr to add either Preston tucker or nick markakis or Lewis brinson or Cory spangeenberg (3b/OF) or hold there? I also have willie Calhoun on my bench too.

    Lastly are you a wwe fan like me? If so who’s on your wrestling Mount Rushmore? Mine would be: Ric Flair, The Undertaker, the Rock, John Cena

    Have a great weekend!

    luis castillo cant pitch well in pitt? 9 base runners and 3 ks over 5, and took him 107 pitches. I know the pirates playing well out the gate but you dont get much better of a place to pitch in Pittsburgh in the cold especially when his home park is a launching pad all summer. You worried about him? I mean on this awful Reds team wins going to be really hard to come by.

    Love the column Grey! Looking at Flaherty. Unfortunately I have to stream an SP for tomorrow and Sunday in order to try to get some Ws. I’m sure it will backfire and Flaherty will go off. It’s kinda been one of those weeks.

    I Dropped Colin Moran last Friday for N. Williams in my NL-Only H2H league. Don’t need to list the huge discrepancy in stats, but it’s most likely gonna cost me 3 hitting categories. Who knew?

    Also, facing Kershaw 3x in one match up really sucks. Thanks MLB for the 11-day schedule for fantasy’s first week.

    Still waiting for Acuna, Souza, and Holland, but just lost Knebel.

    I always love news updates like this:

    “Nolan Arenado confirmed after Friday’s game that he’s not worried at all about the soreness in his left knee.
    Arenado first experienced the soreness during the Opening series of the regular season. He told reporters on Friday, “I’ve already seen doctors… It’s just a little soreness. It’s going to go away here soon. It’s nothing to worry about.” He even showed off his wheels during Friday’s game, swiping his first base of the season, so there appears to be no reason for concern at the moment.”

    This is the first I’ve heard of any knee soreness. Now that my heart is running again, wtf rotowrong?

    He swiped a base today, so this was extra surprising.

    Should I pick up any of these pitchers, pivetta, triggs, hammels,Castillo, Estrada,junis, mahle, Lopez, odrizzi, brault.
    I can drop mikolas, snell, or longoria,Brian Anderson,Nunez. I own d Murphy, and lamb so.. But it’s a deep league and season long points with limited innings. Just in case Castillo is claimed before I get him can you give me two names if any I should pick up, and who to drop for them, thanks.

      I tried reading this three times and my head hurts. Then, I realized how many CI you have in a “deep league” and my head hurts more. How many CI do you have? 8? And Castillo is on waivers?

      Osho will tell you to pick up Castillo, then Hamels, methinks. Unless you can play 6 CI in your deep league, cut one of them for jeebus sakes. Prolly Longo.

      • Ganggreen says:

        @Grey: @Terrence Mann: well it’s 26 roster spots with limited pitch innings. And it’s a points season long rotisserie. 3 starting outfielders, 1 of everything else. 8 or 9 benches. Ok so with lamb, Murphy, Myers, and Yelich hurt, yeah I’ve got a few extra infielders for the time my other infielders are on the DL.

        • Ganggreen says:

          3b:Lamb/ or Longoria,Anderson
          Of: Yelich
          of: Hoskins
          Of: Marte
          Ut: Myers/ or Tim Anderson, Mazara, Duval,
          That’s my offense in a season long points league. It’s called a rotisserie.
          My pitching is
          Sp: Thor
          Sp: peacock
          Rp: Giles
          Rp: Miller
          P: Kela
          P: madson
          Bench: Corbin, Snell,Pom,Trevor wil, Roark, Mikolas
          Limited innings. When I get Pom and lamb back I’ll drop two 3rd basemen likely or a pitcher. I’ll be streaming a lot. Last year I had the same pitching staff pretty much with arrieta as my number one and I did fine. If I get Castillo off waivers I’ll have almost identical pitching as I did last year, with a much better offense to start the year.. Anyways still say to pickup Castillo and junis.
          The stat categories have on base for hitting and walk ratio for pitching. Not bad I think I have a great team. In a 11 team obp.

                    @Grey: I like him too but hopefully he’s done with knee injuries. I’m just surprised you like lamb less then Anderson. It is a obp league so I’m guessing that’s the main reason.

            @Ganggreen: my @Grey: my question still stands now that my roster is up there it should help. junis was gone I should’ve been paying attention. I’m thinking in adding a ton of pitching and just start them depending on match ups. I’ve just never had this many benches before, and I don’t need a bunch of crappy bench bats. So either, I should go prospects, or pitching. It’s also a keeper/auction league.

              @Ganggreen: It’s a keeper? Prolly wanna mention that. In that case, if you don’t get Castillo, prolly wanna grab Mahle or Lopez if Castillo is gone. Cut Longo because I dunno wtf you’re gonna do at 2b if you cut Nunez now.

    If you had Marty Foster in the umpire ejection pool you won today.

    Worst player run I have ever seen. Rendon flips his bat after called strike three. (Foster been calling strikes inside off plate by 3 inches. Pretty bad) This pitch was borderline, Rendon flips bat doesn’t say a single word and starts taking off batting gloves and Foster runs him. Awful.

    His call girl didn’t finish him off last night or something. So bad.

    Bauer and Kennedy both pitching well in the cold in Cleveland tied 0-0 through 6…before Bauer just gave up a solo shot. Own Bauer and streamed Kennedy and got QS’s from both. Bauer only needed 76 pitches to get through 6 with 6 Ks. Kennedy at 100 through 6 with 8ks. Now need Bauer to punch out a few more and not lose his QS. Considering hanging onto Kennedy now for his next start.

Streaming Sal Ramano tonight @Pitt so maybe he can turn in his 2nd QS of the season and get the W. Have Shohei, Montgomery and Jamie Garcia going tomorrow with 1 move left to pick up another streamer. All the options are trash.

    With Barnes bad outing yesterday (almost 100% due to infield errors, though), would you drop him and hold Albers or continue owning both?

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Hold both

    Would you activate Eduardo Rodriguez today in a quality start league? If I don’t I can keep a hitter to sub in on off days this week.

    Thanks

    • Grey

      Sure

    Drop Fowler or Scooter for Maikel Franco?
    Hold?

    I’m in a lifetime keeper league(we can keep up to 5 each year). We are allowed to have one minor leaguer on our team during the year(we do a minor league draft after the regular draft is over). So far the minor leaguers that have been taken are(these guys are not available): Acuna, Gleyber, Vlad Jr, Senzel, Robles, Mejia, Flaherty.

    I’m up next in the minor league draft. So, the guys available are: Calhoun, Hays, Dahl, Kopech, A. Reyes, A. Alford, and anyone else I might have missed, but I imagine those are the top guys.

    So how do you rank the top 3 for this year and possibly a keeper for years to come? Thanks in advance.

  117. Ben says:
    (link)

    My staff: SP:Verlander, R.Ray, Wood, Porcello, Mikolas, C. Anderson, E-Rod
    RP: Vizcaino, Doolittle, Strickland
    DL: Samardzija, J. Nelson

    Worried a little about my ratios especially if I trade Wood. Possible targets if I move Wood? Tanaka, Godley, Nola? Hendricks, Castillo? Not sure their owners would make a deal.. other suggestions?

    Considering trying to move Anderson for a bat. Possible targets? Mazara, Schwarber, Inciarte, Hicks?

    Thanks!

      Don’t trade an SP for another SP

      • Ben says:
        (link)

        @Grey: How come you wouldn’t trade Sp for Sp? How about Wood for one of these guys: Story, DeJong, G. Polanco, McCutchen? Story seems fair to me.

        Thanks Grey!.

    Just finished Wild Wild Country. I don’t know who is the most crazy there. The Sheilas, the Osho’s or the US Government/Citizens. It feels like the government better have known something about him that they just didn’t tell us to justify all the wasted money they spent in this farce. The shipping him from prison to prison was way over the top and a total disrespect for the system they so proudly defend.

    • Grey

      Grey says:

      Agreed, they did all that then said, okay, just leave the country…Which he was trying to do anyway! I do kinda want Cougs to call me Osho tho

    12 team h2h auction dynasty. blew through my weekly 10 moves at start of 11 day week for prospect stashing. morrow just got dropped, barnes MIL already wasn’t owned. OPS, K’s, QS,
    C kraken
    1B freeman (3B)
    2B moncada
    SS ceager
    3B rendon
    LF schwarber
    CF buxton
    RF stanton
    util red dick (all OF)
    util k.davis (LF)
    BN kingery (2B, eventually sounds like he’ll have nearly all IF, some OF, this is yahoo),
    BN brantley (LF), gone varnish (2B/SS)
    DL delino
    NA (10) bauers, a.riley, jesus sanchez, willie, robles, florial
    SP otani, walker, weaver, hendricks, wood, wacha, morton, nola
    RP (max 5)chapman, hand, treinen, k-rob
    DL reyes
    NA f.perez, kopech, allard
    this is a league i traded kershaw (69/336 budget) for freeman (31 year 3 of 3), kopech (1 year 0), hand (10 year 2)

    obviously if i can get both of morrow + barnes drop k-rob, but who’s my drop to add both if possible? peraza i guess, but i needed steals when i nabbed delino (paid 14, way more than OPS rater claims he’s worth, but i was winning him for sure), then grabbed peraza when i lost delino.

    2. different dynasty. have this for hitters (12 team h2h as well)
    C kraken (suzuki filling in till he’s healthy)
    1B E5
    2B kingery
    SS taylor
    3B newtown (lost franco just now, will hold newtown while he’s in coors for sure though)
    LF upton
    CF cain sugar
    RF brocktune (LF)
    util red dick (all OF)
    BN gone varnish (2B/SS), thames (LF/1B)
    k.davis (LF)
    drop peraza for whit 2B/RF? somebody just dropped him. would think the steals would be close, but overall whit better. does leave me with only taylor at SS till kingery gets it.

    • Grey

      Grey says:
      (link)

      1. I guess Gone Varnish, no one else to drop… Don’t get both, you don’t need both 2. Yeah

      • Alfred E. Naujocks says:
        (link)

        @Grey: K/9 in #1 too, so possibly K-rob (or barnes) worth more than peraza (esp since i don’t play him when kingery plays anyway and often moncada over him thus far). while 5 closers would be overkill probably in a saves sense.

    13 team roto dynasty. 1800 max innings on pitchers, no games limits on hitters. lots of extra stats, including defensive stuff (putouts, double plays, assists, OF assists). OPS, total bases, QS, relief appearances and wins, holds, K/9, K/BB. deep benches, we made the rosters commensurate with how we used to be a 16 teamer.
    C posey
    1B goldy

    DL melancon (probably a drop later, i need holds, not saves), knebel, salazar
    NA luzardo, f.perez, duplantier, medina, morejon

    guessing brinson and faria are my possible drops for a league this shallow? (brinson first probably, already have 2 CF and 3 LF)
    glasnow is out there, he’s doing quite awesome lately and for now would get holds.

    Grey, you were so right when you used the term “Maddoning” for how it feels to own Ian Happ. Perhaps the most frustrating thing is that it seems it would take multiple injuries to get him to play every day. Almora, Zobrist–and who the hell is Caratini??? Could opening day really have been Happ’s Sell High moment? Crazy. Is my only hope now to buy the Cubs and trade away all Happ’s competition for playing time…?

    If you were a Happ owner (are you?), how would you proceed? I’m not carrying bench bats. Drop a middle reliever for a short-term bat until Happ gets going? Try and find a Cubs fan to trade with? Prayer circle? Do tell…

        @Grey:
        He’s on waivers on my yahoo league as a hitter where I already have him as a pitcher. He’s on fire, but is he worth adding for 3 games a week at DH?

        • Steve Anus says:
          (link)

          @Letsgobravos: depends on who you are dropping, and how many BN spots you use for hitters and depth of league. he’ll get at bats 3-4 games a week. NEVER the day after pitching, NEVER the day he is pitching. 25.6% swinging K rate today (for reference the highest P of any type last year was kimbrel, who put up his career best 20%, scherzer had a 15% last year)

          19/3 K/BB (less than 9 innings) was somehow ignored by a LOT of people in spring training. that’s ALL i saw and cared about.

    “dude can’t pitch (they say that WHILE looking at his 19/3 K/BB in less than 9 innings)”
    “dude’s bat speed is garbage, won’t hit MLB pitching”

    dragging his ADP WAY down in the last 10 or so days of draft season. thanks guys, you’re the best to have as leaguemates.

    • Steve Anus says:
      (link)

      @Steve Anus: funniest part is even though he’s got at least 4 pitches he’s ONLY having to use really fast 4 seemers up in the zone and 82-87 splitters in bottom of zone to do this (at least today). it’s so easy he’s not even using the other pitches, not once.
