Speaking of 'what if' players, Koji as a reliever in MLB his whole career could have been a HoF case. He's been stupid stupid stupid good all at an advanced age.

Koji's splitter to Mo's cutter.

Can Odor sustain his early success?
Craig Edwards

the 928 wRC+ might come down a bit, but he did hit 33 homers last season. I might be slightly worried that k rate goes up a little bit more. With his poor walk rate he is reliant on that power and BABIP and high k's make him more reliant on BABIP. He was still only a little bit above average after adjusting for park last year.

3-0 greenlight for Correa with no outs and a runner on third. Sac fly. 3-0 Astros.

Paul, can you win a fantasy league without an ace? Basically, no top 25 sps.
Paul Sporer
9:55
Depends on # of teams and format, tbh

A nice welcome to the team!

does everyone that leaves the yankees immediately grow a beard? just because they can?
Craig Edwards
9:56
maybe they just realize that beards are great.

Jesus Andrew Miller's numbers cannot be real

You guys answering any fake baseball questions tonight? Like, say I'm on the high side of Jake Lamb but also like young Joc... Given their supposedly increased playing time against lefties, who gets my last lineup spot? (points league, k's count)

Why do sac flies count negatively towards OBP but not BA?
Paul Sporer
9:58
Boy, that's tough. That's a pair of players I'm very high on for '17. I'll lean Joc slightly.
Craig Edwards
9:58
another reason that OBP is better at measuring player skill than BA
Tom
9:58
carseat headrest is great, definitely a compliment
Paul Sporer
9:58
Awesome, thanks!

Its still kind of crazy that the yankees had miller, betances and chapman.
Craig Edwards
9:59

Eric, Seth Beer is the best prospect in college right now, right?
Eric A Longenhagen
9:59
Best bat, maybe. There are scouts who worry it's DH-only though. If he goes to the Cape this summer and rakes with wood, he's probably the odds on favorite for 1-1 heading into the fall. But there's still a long time between now and June 2018, and what if someone with a much better defensive profile, like Nick Madrigal, starts hitting for power all of a sudden?
Craig Edwards
10:00
told you odor's wRC+ would go down.
Eric A Longenhagen
10:00
And part of it is there's just not much in the way of college bats right now.

Just won a dollar off my dad betting that Napoli would strikeout, easy money.
Craig Edwards
10:00
shame
Eric A Longenhagen

Okay, it's 7 pm so I'm officially here for the next three hours. Let's get weird.
Paul Sporer
10:02
Thanks for hanging out with me for while! Bring it home, Eric!!!
Craig Edwards

Andrew Miller-14 pitches, 10 strikes, two strikeouts. He's still Andrew Miller.
Eric A Longenhagen

Peace, Paul.
