I think the projections were about right for him.

Thoughts on Tyler White?
AvatarDan Szymborski

His name sounds like a QB.
Gavin

Are you buying Puig's resurgence? His batted ball speeds give a lot of reasons to buy into the hype.
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:21
It's not like he stunk for a decade.
I mean he's a 25 year-old that had a lot of injuries last year.
12:22
People acted like he was 2015 Torii Hunter in outlook or something

Would you drop Byung-ho Park for Jonathan Schoop? They appear to have similar ceilings, and Park is striking out over half the time, and Schoop has only two thus far.

If it benefits your team based on your roster needs, sure. But be careful if you're re-evaluating an opinion that was the opposite based on six games.

How much does Pollock's injury worry you for next year and beyond?

Very

Is AJ Reed worth stashing in a league w/4 bench spots and no DL?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:23
Depends who exactly is the alternative.
Pat

what does IIRC mean
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:23
IIRC, if i recall correctly.

Does Robinson Chrinos going down re-open the door to a possible Lucroy trade to TEX?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:23
It's certainly possible

One of you guys has to remind me like on Sunday. I'm very scatter-brained.

How do you feel about the effects of warming up relievers and then not using them? The best bullpens in baseball (KC, BAL, NYY) seem to go out of their way to not burn relievers.
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:25
I prefer not burning guys.

No guy I've seen is more on the verge of "breaking out" than Buxton. Once he starts barreling it up..... It's time to buy, imo.

Drop Markakis for Mazara?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:26
Well, yeah
Why is Markakis being rostered? Are you in a 75-team league?
Julio Pepper
12:26
Would you say Thor is already the best of the trio?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:26
Marginally yes.
He's got the highest upside of any of 'em.

What'd you think of Wrestlemania?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:27
Meh. Too much filler, not enough sizzle.
Craig in Chicago
12:27
Why can't my Sox find a LHDH? Is it really this difficult to do?!?!?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:27
They seem to have an unhealthy fetish with players on their roster generally
A'sfan
12:27
Are the A's gonna make the playoffs?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:27
No, but not impossible.
As I've said many times, every team in the AL had a not-completely-insane case for playoff contention.

It's a bird, it's a plane.. no it's a slider in the dirt but even if it was a bird or a plane Josh Harrison would swing at it anyway!
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:28
I swear I've seen Jeff Francoeur swing at clouds and even visions of sliders he will face in future seasons.

Finnegan looked great against the Phillies, but today he pitches at Wrigley. What should we expect?
AvatarDan Szymborski
12:30
Tougher road, but I like Finnegan.
