Not saying he is horrible but Braves have never been fully behind him.  There has always been talk(even this year) of other options, committes and so forth.  I just wouldn't be surprised if they ended up with someone else should they find themselves in a decent spot down the road.  

 

Not a terrible guy by any means, he is just not highly thought of and will have to be better going forward to maintain the job for the season.  Decent K rate, too many walks.  

 

Not sure why, he's probably around the 10-15 mark of all closers in the league this year. Everyone wants a Kenley Jansen ( Not this year's version tho ) to close for them. There's plenty of teams with way worse closers.

Starter Patrick Corbin won’t follow the team to the northeast. Instead, he’ll spend Thursday in the doctor’s office as orthopedic surgeon Dr. James Andrews will evaluate the severity of Corbin’s elbow injury.

 

Went back n forth with VD but we couldn't agree. I wasn't paying up.

The arm whisperer strikes again.
Verlander 100% on steroids.

The arm whisperer is not very good at keeping talent.

Because he was outstanding last year when he was traded to Houston but you have Jon Gray keeps instead so it’s fine.

The good news for you is you'll never have to worry about having too many good players to pick who to keep.

Goldy is the 2nd worst offensive player on my whole team this year. Glad I didn't do Freeman vs Goldy sides with Timely.

 

Who knew the arm whisperer would know Goldy drops from 500+ to a 300 point player this year?

I drafted Jansen 4th round in a roto league this year. So I know the feeling.

 

Team blows without Seager. We gotta hope MVP Justin turner saves their offense and Bellinger gets hot

I'm still trying to gauge the market on premium bats, as one owner wants to give me an arm upgrade for two premium bat downgrades while another wants a premium arm for premium bat + serviceable arm. 

 

I think that Judge deal was good for both sides, as TTP knew he had to make it nice to get Judge. Ultimately he should be happier but I like VD's guys there. Getting Betts in the other one was great as well. And then SHaw... Yeah... TTP has VD's number for sure. 

 

Flaherty/Yelich is real interesting give your settings. Wonder how that will play out over the season.

Now lemme ask you, RJT....when it comes to these White Sox guys Giolito/ReyLo, what kind of futures do you expect from them?

 

Holding both in my dynasty and while I'm winning, I can sell to rebuilders for stuff to further secure my season. 

 

But if they're gonna be great....I'll just hold off on shopping them. It's just mostly advantageous to deal youth for vets in dynasty.

I'm more interested how you whisper to opposing teams in order to get them to score their absolute least against you.

The sticker price on Corbin is a bit high right now. 

 

May pay close to the requested amount if all checks out with his elbow and all that in the coming days.
