Wow that's horrible.
He's not overworked, he's just a 20 year old kid who clearly isn't MLB ready.
Really gotta take Castro out of the closers role...also, ****...
Tough luck on that one. Cecil got the groundball just found a hole.
Jays better get to Ramirez early. C'mon Donaldson.
Edit: MVP Donaldson.
Jose Fernandez makes the most sense, but I don't need a SP so I'll take Sonny Gray for the bullpen.
Rotation: Doc/Moose/CC Sabathia/Verlander/Kershaw
Lineup: CF Trout, C Mauer, 1B Pujols, 3B...
Toronto Blue Jays
Tampa Bay Rays

RA Dickey vs Drew Smyly
He's got a FIP of 5.95 and an XFIP of 5+. I said earlier in the year it was risky to rely on rookies because as dominant as they might look in the beginning, they'd get hit a lot harder once teams...
Hutch looks a lot better tonight. Bring out the brooms.
SP would be the priority at this point. Minor upgrades like finding a quality MI backup that isn't Goins would be of help so the Jays aren't screwed if Reyes is injured (or needs a day or two off)....
Kadri is so damn underrated. He does everything well and if he was on a line with Kessel I think people would really see how dangerous a player he is.
Yeah there would be a committee but I just hate to see anybody win less than 55. You can rebuild without having to use replacement level guys. Also if your pythag is 55 and your W/L is under that it...
Not debatable. For his career he's averaged .61 points per game, which translates to 50 points a year. Throw in the fact he's a good 2 way center and he's a legit #2 C.
All things being equal, I'd try to always draft the younger player if talent levels are similar. If they're able to produce a similar amount they'll likely have the higher ceiling because there's...
I will be happy to show you at the end of the season that most managers will refuse to do it or will do it at most once a year.
No, 95% is not ridiculous. I just told you that of the top 20 guys in saves only 2 of them have gone more than 3 outs for a save.
Having an elite bullpen doesn't mean that you can't have a 4 out...
Right, but the point is 95% of managers aren't doing that. That's great you know it, but the 30 guys who count on this discussion, only Gibbons and to an extent Girardi have shown any willingness to...
Yep, that was another good move.
I don't know what baseball you're watching, but no, 4 out saves are not that common. I just went through the first 20 guys in saves in the majors, and Miller...
Grabovski is a legit second liner so I'm not sure he's the best example...
Good move to go to Castro in the ninth. Speaking of good bullpen management, how many managers would be willing to use their closer before the ninth inning?
Travis is the best.
Wow Lester no hit the Phils. Had it not been for a HBP he'd have thrown a perfect game.
Time for Estrada in the rotation and Sanchez in the pen.
So next year can we have the anti-tanking rules? 55 wins and above or your first rounder drops 10 spots.
Wow EE destroyed that one.
