Get Joakim Soria because Kelvin Herrera may get traded

Michael Conforto is hurting, Get Curtis Granderson

Boston is drooling over Mike Moustakas or Eric Hosmer

 

Double-A has players likely on their way up to the majors, while Triple-A is full of players on their way down or out

  • Tommy Milone could be a success for Mets
  • Jacob Turner is worth a pickup
  • The Diamondbacks are home next nine games ..Big offense here

Leonys Martin and Edwin Encarnacion will begin their seasons today – (Meaning they will start hitting)

04/17

  •  There will be a huge Garage Sale if Toronto continues to falter
  • Ryan Braun to Dodgers is heating up and the Giants may be in the mix as well
  • Matt Adams in left field wont work as Cards defense if failing
  • Jose Quintana had four scoreless innings after giving up five runs in the 1st.Give Quintana more time
  • Spring training day games may be hurting players in night games.Robinson Cano is hitting .333 in the day games and .175 at night
  • I say Buster Posey plays more 1st base and Brandon Belt moves to LF, to protect Posey’s health

04/12

04/11

  • Jerad Eickhoff will emerge as a top tier pitcher – His strikeout rate continues to rise
  • Adam Wainwright gave up the lead three times last night, Time to worry
  • Tyler Glasnow should be sent to Triple-A. He needs more work!!
  • Eugenio Suarez is still a sleeper. He will hit 20 homers and steal 10+ bases
  • Alex Cobb reached 100 pitches for the first time since 2014 – Tampa’s selling price just went up.
  • Kolten Wong is batting .200, but now he is also making defensive errors. He should be sent down to Triple-A

04/09

  • Mike Scioscia will be creative with his bullpen. Cam Bedrosian and Huston Street will eventually be co-closers
  • Kendall Graveman only threw seven fastballs. He used his sinker for most of his start vs TEXAS. You should market Graveman
  • The Orioles stole 16 bases as a team last season. They stole two yesterday. Manny Machado will likely steal 10 bases
  • Look for Justin Wilson to get 10 + saves for the Tigers. Last night he got the opportunity in order to rest Francisco Rodriguez, who pitched four outs Friday
  • Santiago Casilla came into the game Saturday in the 8h inning. Ryan Madson was used in the ninth. Stay clear of the Oakland Bullpen.
  • Jarrett Parker is 0-for-12 playing left field, The Giants just signed Melvin Upton Jr, so watch for Parker to lose playing time if he doesn’t start hitting immediately

04/08

04/06

  • If Sam Dyson will be replaced by Jeremy Jeffress as Texas closer,
  • Jameson Taillon was the second pick in the 2010 Amatuer Draft, right behind Bryce Harper and 11 picks ahead of Chris Sale. Taillion will show his value this year
  • Gary Sanchez will be removed as the Yankees #2 Hitter. He has a middle of order mentality
  • Gregory Bird has been treating his injured ankle with ice but his ankle is not the reason he will be a disappointment
  • Dylan Bundy will have a breakout this season thanks to his slider
  • Adam Frazier is a good waiver wire pick in deep leagues
  • Alex Cobb looks good and this means his trade value will rise
  • The Royals look like they have already given up on the 2017 season
  • Cole Hamels does not appear to be an elite pitcher any longer. His last six starts in 2016 produced an ERA close to seven, and yesterday he was mediocre
  • Mitch Haniger has been overhyped

04/05

  • Greg Holland is throwing 95 MPH and is the Rockies Closer

    Ben Zorbrist sat on the bench yesterday, and will lose AB’s this year

  • Cody Allen struck out Jurickson Profar, Roughned Odor and Joey Gallo to get the save. Allen is the Cleveland Primary closer (Lenny thinks you don’t already know this, apparently)
  • Speculate on Tom Wilhelmsen to be the Arizona Closer if Fernando Rodney fails

 ;

04/04

  • Andrew McCutchen’s three strikeouts worry me
  • Zack Greinke needed 93 Pitches to get through five innings. This is worse than losing velocity..
  • Khris Davis hit two homers, 2016 is no fluke
  • Blake Treinen got Giancarlo Stanton to pop out, then he struck out Justin Bour and Marcel Ozuna..The kid is for real
  • Dallas Keuchel dominated by throwing low in the strike zone to induce weak contact.  Keuchel is back!
  • Nomar Mazzaro batted third, which increases his Fantasy value if he stays there
  • Cesar Hernandez and Freddy Galvis looked good and both hit home runs. Don’t worry about J.P. Crawford stealing anyone’s playing time.
  • Santiago Casilla got a lucky save and didn’t look good. Don’t expect miracles
  • Jeanmar Gomez looked shaky getting a save. Hector Neris is waiting
  • Greg Holland got Ryan Braun to hit into a double play for a good save!

04/07

  • Blake Snell will not be a useful pitcher as
  • Jeff Samardzija cannot pitch and only has a fastball. Vs Az he threw 6 breaking pitches
  • Brandon McCarthy was impressive and efficient against the Padres.He is a good waiver pick
  • Trea Turner cannot hit left handed pitching and will bat under .300
  • Drew Storen will get over 10 saves this year even though his velocity is way down
  • I’m beginning to think Maikel Franco will not have the star year many predicted
  • Jason Heyward is showing signs of life getting two hits Thursday
  • Byron Buxton continues to look over matched against breaking balls
  • Sean Doolittle came into the game in the 9th inning, while Santiago Casilla was brought in the eighth. Doolittle will get 10- 15 saves at least
